This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF16GSBUSB
They seem relatively sturdy and reliable...we bought over 100 and haven't really seen a high failure rate or, as others reported, the rubber case separating.
If you intend to use this for Windows installations, you really need to look elsewhere.
we have yet to figure out the cause, but there's something "special" about these drives that causes them to break the windows setup program...though it at least doesn't appear to be on all machines.
We have other patriot models and other brands using the exact same build files and prep process that work fine on the same machines that these won't. It's probably a pretty rare case for many, but just something to be aware of that these have some unexpected behavior in our use case...and possibly others we just haven't encountered yet.
