Summary: Bought two of these for my kids, they both failed after just 4 or 5 weeks use. I would have thought it a fluke if one had failed but both of them failing tells me that there is a defect in the production process. Amazon wont RMA so will be sending back to corsair. Please look to purchase another brand. stay away from this one.
Summary: I bought it to save programs and files that I use in my university "Study Computer Engineering " and it worked great for a month, then it started to disconnect the flash drive only , the same day did not recognize 3 computers , and when I get my detects the house with only 74KB ! memory , it was impossible to give new format.
Summary: I am just sending back my 4th failed USB stick. Each time, when I insert into the USB port, I get a message that the device needs to be formatted, but it cannot be formatted. Data recovery utilities are not successful, and all data is lost (again). The Corsair RMA process is not very quick, even the Advance RMA. Adding Notes to their RMA page or requesting updates generate no response. The replacement ("Factory Refurbished") just shows up in the mail.
Summary: There's something defective about this modal of Flash Drive. It can't access the contents after a while and says it needs to be formatted every time you plug it in. They got me a replacement and it broke just as fast.
Summary: I loved this flashdrive, the rubber housing made it seem awesome. Well it held all of my college documents and now it wont work at all. I should have read the reviews. Well the joke is on me, I will definitely not buy from Corsair again.
Piece of Crap - Not reliable and the Company will not go out of its way to help you

Summary: Stopped working after 5 months.... LOST ALL DATA!!!!!!!!! Don't buy from this Company, its products are crap!!!! I have many of these devices for years and years from manufacturers like HP, Toshiba, etc. and they still function reliably today. I bought this one for the capacity and ultimately made a big mistake. I will have to go back to the name brand jump drives as I can not afford to loose data that I am depending on.
Summary: If I were able to put 0 stars I would go ahead and do it without hesitation. As other people mentioned, this product is very disappointing. It will surely die on you randomly, out of nowhere. All your info will be lost as It happened to me. The product was replaced without problem, but it died to me again for the second time. I don't think you should get this usb model. Unless you want to risk it.
