This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF64GSBUSB
looks and feels durable. It is as fast as they say in the correct environment. I doubt you could submerge it but it looks and feels like you could spill something on it without ruining it as long as the cap is on.
The cap doesn't stay on the back side well, no lanyard or key-chain included but that is not an issue for me.
I bench-marked it on my laptop @33.5mb/s read 25mb/s write sequential. 32mb/s read 0.8mb/s write random 512kb. My computer is pretty fast and powerful, when writing a random 600mb folder to the drive it operated around 5-6mb/s. My hdd is a 7200rpm disk. on my macbook air however it exceeded the read write specifications reading at almost 200mb/s and writing at over 50mb/s. I copied a 650mb folder to it on the macbook, the mac doesn't show write speeds but it took about 12-15 seconds so over 40mb/s. bottom line... if your copying to or from a hdd don't expect advertized speeds, if your read/writing to or from a ssd it should perform as advertized or better.
