I will update my review on the cap status in the future since most rubber caps loosen with age and this one is a pocket gripper. I may epoxy a little leash on it to the body.
Reading so many of these reviews does not help in purchase decisions. Frankly, they drive me nuts. "It was so fast!" "It was so much faster than my old drive!" "Some people are too scientific." "It booted immediately on my Windows... (version)/Mac [computer]." (Please do not take any of these comments as personal attacks on your reviews. I have been hammered in past professional writing to ensure I provide hard, substantive data for any statement I make.)
Can I please have objective data to assist in my purchase decision? The first thing I do is benchmark when I receive a flash drive or flash card. I have returned fakes, counterfeits, and below spec units. Formatting new drives appropriately upon receipt is a smart decision, since it removes any crapware from the manufacturer and any viruses a disgruntled employee could have placed. (Does anyone remember the WordPerfect employee who knew he was going to be fired back around 1990?) Although not a Mac user. I use flash drives for Windows Vista/7 and Linux OS purposes.
Flash "class" is based on write speed. I have included a conversion table toward the end of my review. I am sorry I forgot to specify sequential write testing for my benchmarks. To increase accuracy and reduce extraneous hardware reductions in test results, I do not use USB extension cables and clean format the flash for each test. Here are some hard data for you on the 16 GB Patriot XT Boost I received from Amazon:

Thank you for reading my review. I hope it helps you. Please approve or disapprove so I know if I should continue writing and submitting results from this several hour process for future drive or card purchases.
-When it did work it transferred very quickly
-Rubber casing makes it seem like it is pretty durable and can stand being on a keychain or in a pocket without issue
- Stopped working after a few months
- Patriot wanted the original package to rma it, but the original package is ripped and destroyed when trying to open it.
EDIT - Raised to 3 stars because the replacement has been working fine for almost two years now. First one that I received was just a bad one and dealing with Patriot was a hassle because requesting the original packing for a bubble package was ridiculous.
I have very little to complain about, but there is one little thing. Since I have had the product there has been a little issue of it remaining connected to the computer when plugged in. I have narrowed this down to the usb connection on the device, and found that it is probably a problem with the internal contacts not meeting for some reason. I am going to contact Patriot Customer Service, which from what I have seen from other reviewers on here and other sites, isn't going to be a problem, and hopefully we can get this all sorted out. This is the reason I reduced the reliability 2 stars.
Don't let this scare you away from getting this drive. It it highly likely that I happened to get one of those rare drives that has an issue with it, and it will be fixed. I would still buy more of this exact same drive, and intend to very soon.
*** UPDATE 12/29/2009 ***
I contacted Patriot customer service, and it was confirmed there was a problem with my device. They asked that I first try to get an RMA through Amazon. I called Amazon for an RMA which they gave me, and even expedited shipping to one day. They send you the new device first, then you return the old one. I spent less than 5 minutes on the phone to get this problem resolved. Additionally, I have an additional 30 days in which to return the item if I so wish.
Great service from both companies. I think that I got one of the rare not quite working right devices, and I am sure that the new one will be much better.
