Just posting this if anyone is in the market for a larger thumb drive. I just got a notebook with no optical drive, and needed a large one for backup. I was considering the Patriot X-Porter because I have an 8GB one, and besides the bulky feel of it, I'm satisfied. However I decided to go for the A-DATA AS102-32G-RGY "Superior Series." Boasts up to 68MB/s read, 31MB/s write on 3.0.

It's a USB 3.0 drive, but alas I have only 2.0 ports, so here's a bench on 2.0.

I couldn't get a write bench because I can't delete the partition, only remake it, but based on the file test, I think it's like 25-26 MB/s avg write.

For people who like activity lights, this has none. It is a slim, sturdy feeling drive though. I also like how you can place the cap on the back end so you don't lose it. If anyone wants any other bench, just ask.
