Speedy USB Flash Drive
Does not work for installing Windows 7 or higher.
This Flash Drive does not seem to support installing Windows 7 or higher from it. The Windows Setup will boot and run. At the Drive/Partition selection screen, Windows Setup gives a disk/partition creation error. Manually creating the partition ahead of time does not solve the issue. This is on USB2 and USB3 systems. (Not a USB3.0 Driver issue) We have tested and recommend the Patriot Supersonic Rage XT USB 3.0 Flash Drives for installing Windows from USB. ( MX44199 / MX44202 )

Size, cost (bought it on sale), rubber housing and cap are great. It accidentally got put through a wash cycle on a front load machine capped and came out still working without data loss or errors. It just keeps on ticking. Use it for data transfer and storage only.
None thus far

Cannot be used to install windows
Had a couple of these, both my friend and I could not get installations of windows to proceed (it just doesn't get recognized correctly) - replacing with a simple kingston flash drive remedied this problem in both cases.

- Fairly fast transfer over USB 3 - Cheap (got it on sale during the doorcrasher) - Great size
- Can not install windows 7/8 from USB key
It's a great simple stick. Good for shuttling movies / photos around, etc. My friend and I both purchased these for the purpose of installing WIn7/8 off of them. We both independently found out it won't do it (throws a 'can't create partition error'). Happened on 2 different computers. Using a Sandisk stick fixed the problem in both cases. Too bad.
