PQI won new customer

Alex S., Newegg
12 December 2009
  • Summary: Wish it were 32gb. I use the drive to save images of hard drives in my home's pc's.
  • Pros: High capacity...somewhat fast reads/writes. Write locking mechanism is super useful
  • Cons: Writes slow down a few dozen seconds when copying multi gigabyte files. This can be attributed to erase write property of flash

Great drive

Richard B., Newegg
9 November 2009
  • Summary: I would recommend it, it's getting tougher to find drives with read-only switches. This one does a great job.
  • Pros: Runs pretty quickly. I bought this so that I could load anti-virus software onto it, and then place it in read-only so that computers cannot infect it. Works like charm. Feels like sturdy construction.
  • Cons: None really, kinda wish there was somewhere to store the cap on the unit, but I knew there wasn't when I bought it.

Good drive for Tech repairs

Anonymous, Newegg
28 August 2009
  • Summary: Not bad, could be faster and have the write protect switch be a bit bigger so it's easy to switch on or off. Other than that, I have no complaints, I use this drive for when I need to fix someone's PC and don't want the flash drive to get infected with a virus.
  • Pros: Aluminum casing looks cool and professional. Includes a wrist strap. Has a write protect switch which is great when you have a virus scanner on your flash drive and you need to scan the computer without having the flash drive get infected. Plus 16GB... plenty of space!
  • Cons: Slower than most 16GB drives at this price. You need to use the tip of a mechanical pencil to engage the write-protection. (it's on the end of the drive)

Great for back up

Richard S., Newegg
3 August 2009
  • Summary: I used it for backing up my son's baby pics and our wedding pics. Put the drive in my bank safety deposit box.
  • Pros: Small. Lots of storage. Corsair products are always awesome.
  • Cons: Rubber/plastic casing. Feels cheap. I'm guessing this is for shock absorbtion.

Absolutely wonderful

David S., Newegg
20 July 2009
  • Summary: I've had viruses get on my previous jump drive and trash about a dozen fresh installs of Windows. This thing paid for itself the second I took it out of the package. Every repair tech should have one.
  • Pros: * Write protect switch * No goofy retractable plug that gets pushed back in when you try to insert it into a computer * Great for repair techs * Full of win
  • Cons: * It took 3 hours to get the lanyard through the loop. * I am now paranoid of any jump drive that doesn't have a write protect switch.

Nice thumbstick

Anonymous, Newegg
8 June 2009
  • Summary: I bought 2 of them to use as Vista Installers. One for 64 bit and one for 32bit. They work great. I'm so glad companies are still providing thumb drives with write protection. Though they are getting fewer and fewer.
  • Pros: Write protection is the big one. Also has great read speeds. 1kb chunks = 2.6 megs a second. 256 kb chunks = 31.3 megs a second and 16 meg chunks = 32 megs a second. Its also plastic on the outside unlike other drives. Which is good. The a drive I had that had a metal finish I shorted out after w...
  • Cons: Write speeds seem to be a little slow, but I don't care.
