Deadly sharp and dying

Summary: I've had this for eight months, and it is nearly dead. Two computers fail to recognize it most of the time, and it may be because the aluminum casing has collapsed inwards slightly. I keep the drive on my keyring in my pocket, and I use it for backups (and a rescue distribution).
Summary: DOES NOT work with a Mac. I tried on a few. It simply doesn't show up in disk manager or anything. I work in tech and likely would have been able to figure this out of it wasn't a flawed drive or inherent of its design. Flawless on Linux and Windows, but since no OSX, I sold it to a friend.
Summary: Update: I have learned my lesson and will NOT be getting more in the future. The drive starts to fit loosely after a very short time. I have been fortunate, or careful, enough not to lose any data until this drive.
Summary: Even if I got a unit with a bum connector, this item is still twice as expensive as other similar items here on Newegg, and it's claims of providing USB 3.0 speeds are quite a bit off the mark.
Pros: Very small, with a keychain ring attached 0.5" wide x 0.2" high x 1.4" long ( 2.5" long including strap)
Cons: It pains me to write this review because I know Corsair makes good products, I own quite a few including several other USB flash drives. It is hit or miss whether this drive will even be detected. I tried every single USB port on several computers (both USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports), and had about a 50%...
Look elsewhere for cap-less usb flash drive keychain

Summary: This thing is terrible. Do not purchase if you're planning to actually use it on your keychain. At first it worked great, the write speeds were adequate, the size was perfect, and it looked/seemed durable.
HOUSING BROKE, THEN CORSAIR DECIDED TO DENY MY WARRANTY.

Summary: Broke after 3 weeks, the housing came off, when i tried to return it to corsair after being approved they said "items without housing are not eligible for warranty replacements" TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE, TERRIBLE COMPANY, BUY SOMEWHERE ELSE.
Summary: While it is small and light, this drive has never worked quite properly. When I insert it into a USB port (on several different computers) I have to jiggle it to it recognized. If I accidentally touch it in any way, it drops out.
Summary: This was only a waste of about $75, not the worst failure ever. But these drives wasted a large amount of time at work.
Pros: Nothing, slow, high failure rate.
Cons: I purchased several of the 16gb models for our technicians. I grabbed the 64GB model for myself. It worked on PC fine for about a month, Mac it would recognized about 90% of the time. The 16GB drives would not recognized on Mac at all.
Summary: usb 3.0 is great, but the connecting screw between the drive and key chain loop is very weak. Mine disconnected and cannot be fixed. The housing for the drive is also weak. It started collapsing after few months.
