Summary: I don't need the drive often but the one day i needed it... unless you need 128GB you may want to get a two pack of 64GB instead. 2 eggs for the quick and easy RMA and did work rather well for about 10 months using once or twice a week
Pros: Fairly quick lots of space not over way over priced 5 year warrenty
Cons: Died in less than 10 months. No device i plug it into will recognize it as a valid usb device :-( At the price point it is barely worth sending back for replacement. Testing out that 5 year warranty. Got a quick RMA.
Summary: Corsair's warranty information is a bit vague, so I haven't tried to submit a claim with them yet. If I get a replacement, I doubt it will perform differently.
Pros: Huge storage for very little money (hence the two stars).
Cons: I purchased the drive for use in my car's audio system. The first load of files worked for a month or so, and when I went to add files my audio system didn't recognize the drive. There are no diagnostics in the car (the computer at least tells you that there is a problem), so that drive just does...
Summary: Had a PNY 128GB it lasted 2 years and they RMA it. Went to Corsair as their RAM, PSU, and all products are superior compared to most. Figured their USB drive would beat the PNY and I am amazed it failed.. If it lights up and keeps asking to format every couple seconds its a failed drive.
Pros: Great speed at USB 3.0.. nice sliding design
Cons: Failed with in a couple months.. I always buy Corsair for their amazing reliability.. I was extremely surprised I had to RMA this so soon. All data loss.
Summary: I cannot replace it due to the 30 day replacement warranty, so that's $15 out of my pocket which I don't have the money to replace at the moment, and it was being used for schooling. Not fun when all of your important school documents get corrupted and the thumbdrive is no longer accessible anymore.
Pros: It's a very quick and good thumbdrive, with fast write speeds.
Cons: I've had this only about a month and a half and I just found out that the whole thumbdrive is useless now due to a I/O Error, when I've taken very very good care of it during the time that I had it. It has not been dropped, misused, or anything... I'm very unhappy with this.
Summary: I understood that this was less costly than that a Corsair GTX or Magnum (which I own) and adjusted my expectations accordingly. However, the performance per dollar is much less than I expected.
Pros: 256 gigs o' storage and low cost.
Cons: Slow! 1st day transferred 150 gigs of 1 to 2 gig files, averaging about 36 MB/s sustained write. Not the performance I’ve gotten out of other Corsair products.
Summary: This drive quit being recognized in any USB 3.0 slots. Recognized in USB 2.0, just not 3.0. I've tested the USB 3.0 on several different machines. All recognized the drive in USB 2.0, none in USB 3.0.
Pros: Very fast Decent price for specs
Cons: USB 3.0 quit working after 9 months. (see other thoughts)
Summary: USB 3 flash drives are not created equal. This drive has write issues with large files greater than 100 MB. It will copy a percentage of the file and pause, then copy more and pause and this process will continue until the file copy is finished.
Pros: Large storage capacity, USB 3 speeds, activity indicator light, Corsair quality and warranty
