The Patriot Xporter XT Rage is a perfect example of a high speed flash drive. The drive consistently displayed high read and write speeds, which make for a perfect portable transfer solution. During the testing, the read speeds were average among the comparison drives, sometimes taking the lead and sometimes coming in a bit behind. When it came to the write speeds, however, the Patriot Rage was the clear winner. During the 4MB and 5MB Flash Memory Toolkit tests, it displayed write speeds greater than 20MB/s while most of the comparison drives were under half that speed.
