After 1 1/2 months, I get I/O Error

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: 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
Summary: I'll definitely be spending the extra cash and buying more reliable flash drives in the future. I'm very disappointed in this drive.
Pros: Fast enough speeds. As expected.
Cons: I've owned this drive a couple months short of a year. It's always been stored nearly on my desk, hardly touched. I used it a total of 3 times in it's entire life span before it just stopped working last week.
Summary: Always looking for another fast storage device, but the pointy haired boss and the bean counters may have gotten into the design again before it went into production. Come on, guys, the most convenient place to put these things is on our keychains, and not with a piece of fishing string either.
Summary: Coming from the "CORSAIR Flash Voyager" that broke after a few years, I thought I could expect that kind of quality. This is not it. The keyring holder is made of plastic, thats bound to break off.
Pros: Corsair... so I would hope it lasts
Cons: USB port is exposed even when slid in, no cover for it. Lighweight, feels cheap.
