They've cheapened these.

Anonymous, Newegg
11 December 2015
  • Summary: I tried FAT32 and NTFS and tested the flash drive multiple times. As far as the read/write speeds, maybe this one is just defective.
  • Pros: Still made out of metal.
  • Cons: I've noticed the model number is now CMFSS3B as opposed to the former CMFSS3 (no B at the end). I'm thinking this was a change to the worse. - (This drive) Crystal Disk Mark read: 41MB/s Write speed: 20MB/s - (Former 128GB before the "B" was added) Crystal Disk Mark read: 142MB/s Write speed: 37M...

Don't Buy this

Andrew N., Newegg
3 December 2015
  • Summary: These drives use to be awesome but the speeds on this drive no longer even justify the the price of this drive over the cost of other drives on the market this size. I'd have to guess they started using cheaper memory or controller and hoped no one would notice, I RMAed my drive on corsair's...
  • Pros: Well built and rugged should last a while.
  • Cons: I'm an owner or 2 64gb versions of this flash drive and both of they are great. However, at some point over the last year since I ordered my previous one it seems they have changed either the kind of flash memory they use or the controller cause this drive is extremely slow. My other drives peak ...

Great Flash Drive

Michael K., Newegg
6 September 2015
  • Pros: Well protected USB flash drive. Only giving it a 4/5 stars because the speed is slower that other 3.0 flash drives I use. Fair price for this size drive, you can pay a lot more and get a lot less.
  • Cons: Speed tends to be slower than other 3.0 USB flash drives.

You get what you pay for here

Paul S., Newegg
3 August 2015
  • Summary: I ran my car over one of these one time and has no issues.
  • Pros: I was so tired of walking by my workstation and hitting the thumb drive sticking up, and bending the metal ever so slightly. What good is it to buy something that's fast, and a good price, if it breaks easily?
  • Cons: It's not as strong as the silver, black, and blue Survivor USB 3.0 model they once made. But it's still a very strong drive.

My Latest "Survivor"

Patrick D., Newegg
21 July 2015
  • Summary: As I said before, I've not had a Survivor drive fail me yet, and with the care with which I treat them, I doubt I ever will. They might not be the fastest, but I can wait an extra few seconds for the knowledge that what I'm putting on it will be safe and secure (at least structurally).
  • Pros: This is my sixth Corsair Survivor series flash drive, starting at 4GB and leading up to 256GB now. None of them have failed me yet, and I've yet to even lose a rubber washer off any of them. I bought this one because my last two USB3 64GB Survivors were filling up and my GTR 32GB was starting to ...
  • Cons: The main 'con' I can find is actually one of the 'pros.' There are two versions of this drive - the CMFSS3, and the CMFSS3B. The main difference I could find between them is the non-'B' model is slightly larger and weighs more, which makes me wonder if the 'B' model was made more cheaply. The les...

Robust protection for your data

Bron "Bron", Amazon
19 July 2015
  • Summary: Seems fine to me. Great, strong case which is robust and protects my data well (this is for travel). Speed is fine, about average. I like it and it has worked well, so far.

Protection, for when you need it.

Z. Law, Amazon
15 July 2015
  • Summary: Love these. The second one I bought. My only wish is that there was som way to connect the cap so there wasn't threat of losing it. That being said, this thing is fast, and well protected.

Inexplicably "write protected" - FORMAT REQUIRED.

Benjamin, Amazon
8 July 2015
  • Summary: After about a year of very light use, this device is inexplicably "write protected." Corsair customer support offers only instructions to format it using DOS interface. I'm very disappointed.
