2 out of 5 eggsFailed quickly

Pros: Fast when it works. Construction seemed to be solid; looks the same today as when I got it. Got it on sale.

Cons: I got this about a year and a half ago, and lost it after about two or three months. Found it under a chair a few weeks ago, and started using it again. It didn't last three days before it will not be recognized by any computer at home or work. So . . . about three months total usage.

It's a paperweight now, and had a backup for work I was lucky to have saved elsewhere as well. Gone now.

Other Thoughts: This was pretty unexpected, as I have high regard for Corsair as far as memory goes. I didn't even have time to lose the cap. The LED seems to function; maybe I'll harvest that for another project.

Two stars for good product/operation while it worked. Take off three because this is the only flash drive I've ever seen fail, even after years of use.

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage

Pros: Looks nice

Cons: Absolute garbage, failed completely, only used infrequently

Other Thoughts: Sad. I had high hopes for this drive but it turned out to be a piece of junk. Didn't use it much, just a few backups, and then it just stopped working about a year after I got it.

1 out of 5 eggsUsed Twice and it Died

Pros: None

Cons: Sat on my desk for a year and died after the second time I used it as a backup. Pathetic.

1 out of 5 eggsVikas Haridas

Pros: Size, Price and Rebate i got at the time

Cons: Not working anymore. Fails to read and detection shows unknown drive in Windows with the USB drive constantly flashing its blue activity light. This is my 2nd replacement that I got after the first died after just 2 weeks of usage or something.

Something definitely wrong with the model so many people reporting issues. This product no longer sells on newegg. Good they deactivated it.

Other Thoughts: I am counting on Corsair to honor RMA and do something about this as they always have.

Manufacturer Response:

We will certainly replace your drive. If you have not already done so, please use this link to begin your RMA.

1 out of 5 eggsBad choice, not recommended

Pros: Let me think... Capacity?

Cons: The size is huge! Way to big for the average USB drive.

It has quit 2 times now. I am on the 2nd RMA replacement. The first RMA Newegg took care of in an awesome Newegg manner. The 2nd RMA had to be done through Corsair.

I have had USB drives of a different manufacturer in smaller capacities that have worked for years, and even still work to this day. (I am using a 1GB PNY that I have had for 5 years now!)

I have owned this for 5 weeks with 2 replacements. It works fine for a few days then out of the blue I plug it into any computer and it will not read it. The computer may or may not recognize a USB device has been plugged in but it is never installed to work - this is on any version of Windows (XP, Vista, and 7).

Other Thoughts: Corsair is a good name but I think there is an issue with this model of USB drive. I would steer clear of this particular model and look at something else.

Manufacturer Response:

We're sorry you had an issue with your replacement drive. Please be sure to note that this is your 2nd RMA and we'll cover shipping.

2 out of 5 eggsNot so great...

Pros: can't think of any... cool color, maybe?

Cons: Large (size, not capacity)! with everything getting smaller and more convenient to transport, this drive is about double the size of any I've used recently. Flaky to start, failed within two weeks- with sensitive data that is now inaccessible. First flash I've EVER had fail

1 out of 5 eggsSo bad, even Corsair knows it stinks

Pros: The illusion you are getting a first-tier Corsair product.

Cons: How do I count the ways?

If you are big on losing your data, having your drive fail without notice, being unable to recover your data after it's lost, being unable to reformat your drive, and being unable to have your drive recognized by your ports, then this is the drive to get!

While you're at it, get a complete psychiatric exam so you can understand why you are a masochist.

Other Thoughts: I own a computer store and get nearly all my wholesale products from NE. We all know this company rocks.

We also know Corsair has an excellent reputation, so the idea that this model got out the door mystifies me. When you see a product get 49% of its ratings at 3 eggs or below - and more than a quarter at 1 egg - you have to have air-for-brains to get one. (It was a new model introduction when I got 3 of them for a client and didn't have the advantage of these reviews first . . . If I had, I wouldn't touch it.)

Corsair Tech Support was excellent - no hassles about getting an RMA. I feared they would send me 3 more of the same model, perhaps with a firmware update or such - but instead they sent me the CMFVY3S-16GB instead - which is currently at 5 eggs. I call that EXCELLENT pro-active support!

So get the model referenced above and you'll get the same durability features in a 5-egg product. Forget this one.

And update your USB 3.0 firmware and drivers to ensure great resul

1 out of 5 eggsWasted my money

Pros: Looks rugged.

Cons: Bought one, it died 3 weeks later. Newegg replaced it. The replacement failed 6 weeks later. It's past Newegg's RMA period, so I'm stuck trying to return it to Corsair.

Other Thoughts: I bought a Corsair Flash drive 3 years ago that lasted till I lost it.

Manufacturer Response:

Please be sure to note in your RMA that you have had more than 1 replacement drive and request that we take care of the shipping. Sorry you have had this issue and we'll get you a new drive ASAP.
