1 out of 5 eggsCheap housing!

Pros: Housing broke off from cheap material used, was very gentle with it and heat was the culprit.

Cons: Wish I could get my money back!

5 out of 5 eggsBonus

Pros: USB 3.0

Got it for free

Rubber

Even if not free, still a cheap 16gb flash drive

Cons: Big

Too many logos on it.

Other Thoughts: Thanks CORSAIR, this made the keyboard I bought a bit more worth it. Its a solid working drive, pun intended.

5 out of 5 eggsnever failed me

Pros: obviously faster than USB 2.0. Works great. No problems.

Cons: Rubber casing makes pulling it out of your pocket take 0.4 seconds longer.

Other Thoughts: I don't know why so many other reviews have failures, but mine's been working like a horse for almost 1.5 years. I use it for work and play, and not a single problem yet.

5 out of 5 eggsNo Problems

Pros: I have had mine for quite some time. I use it bi weekly and have never had a moments problem. I have 3 2.0's also and I have never ran them side by side I can't really notice much difference. Although my computer is fast enough where it can handle them without a problem so it would be hard to tell.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I can't believe Corsair would release an inferior product. I have lived by Corsair ram and I have only had one failure which was promptly rectified.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat!...When it works

Pros: Works great, when it works.

Cons: I've ordered 5 of these. They work fine for a month or two and then they quit working. I've replaced each at LEAST twice.

Other Thoughts: I contact Corsair with each failure, and they'll send me a new one when I send it in, but I shouldn't have to do this on a monthly basis. This obviously doesn't work well for high powered users.

1 out of 5 eggscan't put it here

Pros: none

Cons: died in a week, runs hot, doesn't seem any faster than my 4 year old Coarsair 2.0 16GB (I had to resolder the connector) that still works fabously.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this from another provider to use up my use em or lose em Rewards. I wanted to have a portable Linux distro on it. Didn't like the unity desktop so was going for Mint 13 LTS. After wiping the drive it will no longer boot. I have tried different Distros and all fail. It was like it had a boot once ever feature. I have reformatted back to defaults and it still fails.

The drive itself seems flimsy as it rattles around insid its plastic casing which is inside a large rubber shock absorber. Its pretty big. I wouldn't purchase this again.

2 out of 5 eggsNot a Good Buy

Pros: It seems to be a sturdy drive and well protected by it's rubber casing. It is also relatively fast. It was noticeably faster than my USB 2.0 flash drives

Cons: It failed after a little over a year. Perhaps I have been fortunate, but I have never had a flash drive stop working all the way back to when 256 kb was considered large. (Still have them and they still work) In researching solutions, I found that failure is common. Moreover despite the large number of failures Corsair seems to have limited returns to those that failed within 30 days and frequently referred people back to merchant that sold the drive.

Other Thoughts: I would note that I was able to access the drive on one computer and retrieve my data. However, I have not been able to get it to work on any other computer. I guess I should consider myself fortunate that it lasted as long as it did and I suffered no loss of data.
