I was going to post this but decided not to. What I've learned about Fry's is that you have to look carefully at deals that look particularly good. Often you'll find that their dumping an inferior or obsolete product. I couldn't find any information about this drive, particularly relating to speed and reliability. I also noticed that previous Fry's deals for Patriot thumb drives were for ones that got poor reviews on NewEgg. 64GB for $20 seems a bit too good to be true and I suspect that these are either very slow, very unreliable, or most likely both. Unless it can be proved otherwise I'll skip.
BTW a good example of what I'm saying is the Samsung camera. $99 for a 18x zoom looks really good. When you go looking for the model the first one you'll find is the WB750 (with 1080P HD video), which many places sell for $139. However, closer examination shows it to be the WB700 model (with 720P HD video), so it doesn't seem quite so hot. That isn't to say it's not a good camera at a good price, it's just that Fry's are being intentionally obscure.
