Summary: Went to the Corsair web site and found the warranty is 5 years. Opened an RMA request and it was approved in less than 5 minutes. Will get a replacement. Hoping this one flash drive is just defective.
Summary: I got this as a Xmas present, so by the time it was opened and tried... it was no longer eligible for return. This really stinks. I paid a flash sale price of $39 for a piece of worthless junk.
Pros: good price, nice design
Cons: After a few minutes of use, the flash drive becomes very home/hot. This causes the the USB port to shut down. The only way to get the usb ports working again is to restart the PC. Also, the flash drive needs to be unplugged to cool down.
Summary: I just have used this pen drive to discharge about 40GB from my 2x 256GB each Samsung SSDs in RAID0. The speed of transfer was about 135MB/s very good compared with my A-DATA same size which transfers to about 95MB/s. For 30 bucks it is a very good choice.
Pros: Sturdy Capless
Cons: Once formatted its capacity reduces from 128GB to 115GB but this thing happens in all flash memory devices, so it's okay for me.
Cons: After about a week, only 32Gb was visible on the drive, I tried plugging it into multiple different computers, I tried formatting the drive, nothing seemed to work, it was a good drive until this happened. I handled it well, never to rough with my electronics, but something happened with the amou...
Pros: for 1 GB Files: 40 GB/s Write and 130 MB/s Read. Actual size: 116 GB. This matches Samsung's brand new 128GB model (I was mad and bought it thinking it would be better than this and they both have identical speed, so I take back my first 1 star review.) I guess that is the average speed, I though...
Pros: I use this thing daily to haul data from my computer to my media player (player won't connect over wi-fi anymore, thanks Windows 10), and it reads 1080p HD with no problem, no stuttering. Completey reliable, no corrupted files at all.
Cons: Write speed is usually around 22 MB/sec, but I'm wondering if it's because I'm using NTFS format rather than the recommended FAT32. My media player won't read FAT32, you see.
Cons: Very slow write speeds for a USB 3.0 drive. My HP x702w (by PNY) drives are much faster. Physically very large generally taking up the space of two USB slots if they are less even sort of close together.
