Summary: This is my third Corsair thumb drive. I still have them all, just been increasing sizes as the years go on. I am a service tech and use these daily. Good speed and best of all water proof. I often forget to pull these from my pocket before putting pants in the laundry. They survive and work every time. Cant beat that.
Summary: Corsair makes good products all around. I like this armored line of drives. Very easy to grasp. Bench tests show about advertised speeds and real world tests put it on par with the best of comparably priced competitors. I have a lot of flash drives and these and the red Corsair GT are my favorite drives. I believe you could drop one of these from the top of a high-rise and it wouldn't hurt it - seriously. I like the red GT better because they are bigger for my meaty paw.
Summary: Speeds are as expected, and unlike my cheap and recent Sandisk drives, this one is consistently detected and reliable. My only complaint is that you can loose the cap, and the design tends to attract dust when in a pants pocket. Other than that, I'm glad I spent the extra to get this drive over others.

Summary: This stick meets my needs for file transfer from one computer to another and temporary storage of some files until I can decide what to do with them. Just handy to have a few sticks at hand for whatever. Plenty fast enough for the way I use them.
Summary: I bought two of these in 2012, and the both died within a few weeks. This drive is actually not very rugged at all. Yes, it is cover in a ton of shock resistant rubber, however there is no hard casing at all. The stick on the outside is very vulnerable to torque/bending from everyday use. Since there is no hard case, if the end does bend, then the connection between it and the memory chip will be severed. This happened twice for this particular flash drive.
