Pros: You'll see my initial review of this drive back on 10/2/2013 (Justin E.) It was great while it lasted.
Cons: plugged it in this morning to copy some files and it isn't recognized. Nothing happens when I connect it. I get a standard hardware detected notice, but no disk. Luckily, everything was backed up elsewhere but this is pretty unacceptable.
Summary: Flash drive failed today, about 8 months after being purchased. Windows won't even recognize a device is connected. It's a good thing I'm paranoid and kept backups of everything on the drive, because it gave no warning of impending failure.
Summary: There isn't much excuse for a major company like Corsair to overlook something as simple as, "can you plug the USB key into any MacbookPro?" Flash drives sole purpose is to be readily interchangeable between computers, so design should make it as flexible as possible.
Pros: Speed is OK.
Cons: Too wide!! You have to unplug all nearby connectors just to plug it into any MacbookPro (2010/2011/2012...), which means unpluging the external monitor and all USB devices just to use this key without an extension cable.
Summary: i have test the writen speed in three different laptop with the USB 3.0 ，i was so dissatisfied to find that the writen speed was just about 18m/s，the similar Sandisk's USB3.0 flash drive is easy to write up to 100m/s.
Summary: This flash drive is nothing but BS. I have had it for a very short time...perhaps a month or so and it keeps asking to reformat. NTFS, FAT32, exFAT....neither will report the actual size.....it is supposed to be a 128GB Flash Drive, but it shows Capacity to be only 123GB or so.....
Summary: I purchased 3 of these flash drives during a daily deal with high hopes. The read/write speed of these is absolutely terrible. I average roughly 18 MB/s write and 40 MB/s read from a mainboard USB 3.0 port on 4 different computers.
Can't transfer large files, and if you want it to, the drive will die on you!

Summary: Worst Flashdrive I've ever used. Seems like it's designed to die if you want to store larger files on it. First off, it's formatted as FAT 32, so if you want to transfer larger files once you get it, forget that! Then, if you do format the drive to NTFS, it will die on you! That's right!
