Flash / Jump / Thumb Drive

#1MrDolfanPosted 9/23/2011 9:44:52 PM(edited)
Im scouring the internet trying to find an appropriate thumb drive for my xbox 360 slim. One that would pass requirements and fit into the front. Also, I am not looking for the overpriced branded one.

I need it to be 16 GB and somehow being capless would be a plus. Any help?

Patriot Xporter. It's a great durable drive. A little thick, but you can plug two in at the same time if you choose to do so.

I did some comparisons to the PNY and comparisons to load times on the HDD and load times from DVD:

Great write up and as it stands, that is acually my finalist. I am just hoping to find one that either retracts or swivels. I know I am going to lose that cap ASAP.

This is my thumb drive, the Patriot Xporter XT Rage 16GB.

I dunno how it compares to the Patriot Xporter XT Boost 16GB, but seeing as they are both current 16Gb Patriots with identical pricing, I suspect they are similar. The Boost looks longer so may be a faster drive sacrificing physical size for improved performance, however, the Rage lacks a cap - the end of the cap slides to cover the USB connector, thus, when on a 360, no cap to loose. Very nice piece of kit, I've had no complaints.

Wait... mine is supposed to have a cap?

Yeah those get lost real quick.

I don't use mine for storing games or anything, just game saves. So I use an extension to make it easier when I plug it in and unplug it. And I always have a guest extension for when friends/family show up.

It looks a bit more tacky but it works great.

Ive read that the cover on the rage gets very loose very easy. Is that the case with you?

Yeah it does get loose. I was worried about it at first because it happened almost immediately but it's been fine.

I have 2 other 8gb of the same model, and neither of those has that problem like my 16gb.

I didn't know it was called the "rage" lol . That's awesome.

If you can find something better, great. I'd like to know too because I'm about to get another one soon. I jumped right in and did some comparisons because it was so exciting to get USB support...I was kind of surprised that some of these gaming sites didn't do something similar. There's a few other tests out there but last time I looked there wasn't much info from people who did tests.

It probably does on a drive that gets used on multiple machines over and over. I don't move it around much so it has been fine for me. If it was left plugged in to an Xbox most of the time, I doubt you would have anything to worry about. Unlike some of the reviews, it does have detents to hold it full open or full closed. The only thing I don't like about it is that it's currently missing and I can't find it.

how does loading a game from the flashdrive work?

examples.

Loading a whole game (dvd 6.8gb)?

Loading Arcade games (ranges)?

Putting extra contect such as DLC Maps, Forza Car Packs, Dragon age disk 2 with all dlc and extra games, etc.?

Game saves i dont worry about because they are sooooo tiny.
