Summary: The product pictures displayed speed tests outputting as much as 15 MB/s write and 30 MB/s read but in reality its just 7 MB/s write and 26 MB/s read. I wouldn't suggest the extra price for the little extra performance.
Summary: Very happy with the capacity and read/write speeds, but that rubber casing drives me crazy. Lint, dust, fuzz, and grime stick to it like a magnet. Profile of casing is not slim enough to squeeze between two USB plugs in a vertical side by side situation.
Summary: I purchased this flash drive several months ago, upgrading my 4gb Kingston. I tried to get used to it but it just became to frustrating. I work on several different computers and also do computer repair work so I like to carry whatever software and apps I need with me wherever I go. For my day-to-day use I run several portable apps including Firefox and Thunderbird. The Corsair flash drive is much to slow to run these apps effectively.
Summary: Very big in capacity, but slow to transfer data, specially when dealing with many files (like back-ups) Tried to check my computer, but it was ot the case. Well protected, you can drop it and it bounce like a ball. If you are not in a hury to copy huge amounts of data, a good deal.
Summary: 16GB for $40 (plus a $15 rebate) made me buy this... I have about 12GB of files I need to backup and transport between computers (without wasting a CD due to frequent changes) Running XP the write speed is dismal... it took 12 hours to copy 12GB of files in a half dozen directories (Ok, folders... when I started they were called directories) I did have to change the format from FAT32 to NTFS due to one very large file...

Summary: You won't be able to use any of the utilities that come with this drive unless you build a series of mini-partitions of 4gb or less. Why bother buying a large drive and then break it up into little pieces? If you forget the utilities and just format the drive as NTFS, you can use the entire 16gb for copying. They should make this more clear in the advertising.
Summary: I got this to run virtual machines from as my laptop has a 64 gb solid state disk, i needed the extra space and thought i'd perform sort of similar speedwise - mistake - it is way slower for constant access than a usb hard drive.
