Went through the wash twice and still works like new!

Summary: I'm not sure why anyone would give this 1 star. It works as advertised, and in my case I have found it to go above and beyond. I would never had expected it to work flawlessly surviving the washing machine and dryer, let alone twice.
Summary: I was getting really tired of how slow it is to store files on almost every flash drive in my collections. So I did considerable research to try to find the fastest flash drive I could get. This drive was the fastest that I could find that didn't require USB 3.0 ports. I am delighted with how much faster it is to move large files to and from this drive, to the point that I can't stand to use any of my other flash drives anymore.
Summary: Like another reviewer, mine went through the washer and still worked perfectly (and smelled wonderful). For forgetful people, this is indispensable. My only complaint is that the transfer speeds aren't as great as I was hoping, but this is a minor issue.
Summary: I've owned the 32 GB version for just over 2 years and this drive is still going strong. It isn't the toughest USB 2.0 drive around but the Patriot Xporter XT Rage feels rugged and the slider works great. The thing I liked most about this drive is its short length and width while having such a high storage capacity. It doesn't block neighboring USB ports either. Finally, I get around 20 MB/s when transferring a movie to the drive (formatted as NTFS).
