USB flash drives are typically the kind of item where you just need one, and it is rather difficult to get excited about any particular model. That said, manufacturers release flash drives with novel features simply intended to make them stand out in the crowd and in turn generate more sales. This can include simple things like the size and shape, a theme based on something from pop culture, added functionality like hardware encryption, and in some cases the promise of improved performance.

This review is going to take a look at a flash drive from Patriot Memory that is looking to grab your attention with the promise of high speed transfer capabilities. The XPorter Rage 16GB USB flash drive features "quad channel technology" to boost the read/write speeds up to 27MB/s (read) and 25MB/s (write).
