Smaller products tend to have simple packaging. The Trinity is no exception here. The cardboard sleeve looks excellent which is great for shelf appeal. It also does a good job of showcasing the features the USB drive has. Patriot earns an A+ on presentation.
The packaging is also pretty secure. I found the easiest way to get to the drive was to take a pair of scissors to the sleeve. I cut the top off and was able to easily slide the drive out. Since the product is a USB flash drive, I doubt anyone has plans to save the packaging for resell.
Trinity Closer Look
I half expected to see some Bumblebee eyes pop out at some point. The drive is certainly fun to play with, even if the transformation isn’t overly dramatic. A simple flip of the lid reveals the micro-USB port, but folding it back down brings traditional USB port compatibility. The other side has a lid with the USB type-C connection. The design is actually fairly simple for how unique it is.
Overall, the drive looks and feels excellent. The metal cover glides easily and adds a quality aesthetic to the drive, while the pattern to the black lid helps break up the monotony. The Trinity is a bit heavier than most USB flash drives I’m accustomed to. While the versatility alone would be worth it (you can use this on your smartphone!), Patriot didn’t skimp on other aspects of the drive.
