Pros: Fast read and write speeds when using USB 3.0
A perfect amount of space for all my necessary programs, movies, projects, school, etc.

Cons: The thickness of the drive can interfere if using USB slots that are lined up horizontally.

slots like this: - - - - | - - - - The flash drive overlaps a little.

1 out of 5 eggsDead after 1 month and 2 uses

Pros: Fast when it works, lots of space.

Cons: Stopped working after a month and 2 transfers. corrupted data first, then I had to format it to get it to move data to and from the disk. Tried to put data back on the disk and it would go about 60% and then fail, the drive would be removed from the PC. Tried multiple PC's same result, shows "phison usb disk 50x showing 0 MB" . Also shows "Insert disk" even if the unit is plugged in.

Other Thoughts: Now i have dead flash drive, guess ill have to get another brand :-/

4 out of 5 eggsFast and elegant

Pros: Very fast speeds with USB 3.0 - Crystal disk speeds above in the specs are accurate. Real world speed went up and down depending on the types of files but great to transfer large files. I was consistently getting 140 MB/s read and 65-70 MB/s write on USB 3.0 on my Alienware M18x with 2 SSDs in raid-0 so I will be doing further testing because I expect these numbers to be a little higher with my setup. Still excellent compared to USB 2.0.

128GB of storage is significant in a flash drive. If you are buying a flash drive of this size and not sure exactly how many files can fit on to it, here is an idea: An average song (MP3) is around 5MB, you would be able to place 26,214 songs on this drive. A 5 megapixel camera - 73240 pictures (JPEG). A 10 megapixel camera - 36.620 pictures (JPEG). 64 hours of 1080P HD quality video. So you get the point, this is extremely large and well suited for large transfers.

Works with multiple OS systems such as Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.

Looks elegant and would be perfect for an office environment or anyone that doesn't want a cheap plastic flash drive. The feel is great and solid unlike any other flash drive I have used in the past.

5 year warranty!

Cons: Too wide to fit another USB plug next to it when it is attached. This may or may not be an issue but this can easily be fixed with an extension USB cord. I personally have never liked hooking in flash drives into a computer/laptop without an extension because they can be easily broken if something brushed up against them so this is not a huge concern for me.

Cover cap can comes off very easily but I have tried several instances where it was in my pocket and had no issue with it coming off.

Other hardware could limit you from peek performance of this flash drive. Remember that you can only go as fast as your hardware will allow. Just because your port is USB 3.0 on your computer doesn't mean that your hard drive will transfer to your flash drive at maximum speeds. Average write from a 7200 RPM drive is only around 70 MB/s so keep this in mind.

Large in physical size and if you are looking for something very small then this may be a concern. You probably wont find anything with so much storage space however and be too much smaller than this drive.

Other Thoughts: USB 3.0 is no doubt faster than USB 2.0 (around 10X faster) so if you have this port available you wonder how you lived without it. This flash drive looks great, has tons of storage space and is fast so you can't go wrong with it. I will be using it for a replacement of all my other various sized flash drives. A few things I will do with it are using it for backups, hooking it into my netgear router that has USB port so I can access data across my devices and using it to transfer data to a backup computer.

3 out of 5 eggsNice flash drive

Pros: This is a very solid little USB drive
Tons of storage space
Even for USB 2.0 it is pretty quick

Cons: It is a little big (width) compared to other USB devices. If using in a USB hub, it will block the port on either side (depending on port orientation)

Cap comes off pretty easily and I can see it being lost.

A little pricey for what it is. Not sure of why the price premium (even over other Corsair USB 3.0 drives that appear to have better performance).

Other Thoughts: Was not sure what to do with this drive, but ended up using it as a network storage drive on my router (USB 2.0 only). I have a few DVD's ripped on it and have no issues with streaming over my gigabit network.
Great place to store files you want to move between computers if one is not on at the time.
I may use this as a secondary drive to my SSD if I get USB 3.0 (depending on what the real world speeds are compared to HDD) or maybe as a cloned drive on my primary SSD for backup (I have a 128 gb SSD also, about 1/2 full).

If I were looking to buy a 128 GB USB 3.0 drive, I would probably look for a cheaper model. Nothing wrong with this one, but I just don't see any reason for the price premium. Maybe if I was transferring lots of files all the time I might (this one is rated for higher speeds than many).
If you have USB 2.0 and have no plans for USB 3.0 any time soon, get a cheaper USB 2.0 drive (half the price of this one).

4 out of 5 eggsA Work Of Art

Pros: 128GB = 117GB formatted, for those who are wondering.

This is the first USB drive I've run across that I truly thought was a thing of beauty. The outside is real metal, it tends to get cold at room temperature. It's heavy, heavier than I'm used to feeling. This thing screams "quality".

I'm still not sure how i could make best use of it, but I'm glad to have it. I have to assume that this is the sort of thing that's meant for small drive laptops, such as a chrome book, or the new Asus T100. This would be ideal for storing videos or music that you don't want to have to stream over the cloud, but don't want to add much heft in your pocket either.

In terms of speed, on average with 3.0 it was around 170-200MB per second. I believe there were some driver issues, because the longer I transferred the more wild the variances got, but I saw 170-200 more than any other speed. I wouldn't be surprised if it went faster with a proper driver update.

USB 2.0 was much smoother and more predictable. Speeds were in the 20-40MB range, and became a very consistent 28-30MB when I transferred single large files.

Cons: The width of this drive, while admittedly nice in your hands, makes it very hard to plug in almost anywhere. This is especially true of any area that has more than one USB port sitting together.

The key-ring loop is big enough to hold an actual key-ring, however it's not thick enough for it to turn on it's side. This may be intentional, but it's a deal breaker for me in terms of actually putting it on a ring. I need free movement. It's also worth noting that my keys did end up scratching the metal a bit, so I ended up moving it to my other pocket anyway.

The cap isn't very secure. It had a tendency to come off in my pocket on a pretty regular basis. A couple of times I actually thought I'd lost it. This isn't very encouraging for an item that's meant to be carried around all the time.

Other Thoughts: To be honest, this is a classic case of form over function. The drive is absolutely gorgeous, but it's hard to find a place to plug it in. It's by no means unusable, it just requires more effort to do so, and on smaller items may leave your only other USB port covered, which is not cool.

If it has to be this wide, I'd actually like to see it come with some sort of extender. Either make the male piece itself longer, or add a short, low profile cable as a pass-through so it doesn't block up the other spaces.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Pros would be: it's a Corsair; the capacity is nice; speeds are good; size is a plus.

Cons: For this price point, I would rather buy a SATA III SSD and put it in an external enclosure... It would actually be cheaper and faster and I would think heat would be less of a problem. The only thing going for flash drives is their size; otherwise, you might as well go with a SSD + enclosure. If you wanted you could get a mSATA SSD with enclosure and make it smaller that way.

Other Thoughts: Price is a bit high to me, and the design of the casing is a bit bleh. Sorry, I don't own this drive, but felt the need to make the point about SSD's + external enclosures and this is not being covered very well (or hardly even sold ready-made, if at all). Otherwise, it's flash nand anyway so the only difference is size and price

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't work in USB 2.0 ports

Pros: Works in USB 3.0 ports and is reasonably fast.

Cons: Not detected at all on 3 computers when plugged into USB 2.0 ports.
I contacted Corsair support and received no response after 2 days even though their site says they will respond within 1 day so I returned it to Newegg.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty Good

Pros: initial praises: good looking

Cons: initial complaints:
cap doesn't snap on securely - it will get lost
Write performance on a USB 2.0 port is ~100mbps which is far less than advertised but that was during file transfer of >350,000 files (totaling 58GB) and not a few massive, contiguous files.
It's fairly wide.

Other Thoughts: I'm really not displeased. I don't purchase any such flash drive for crazy performance so I'm not terribly underwhelmed by the write performance

5 out of 5 eggsSo far, so far...

Pros: Getting this USB Flash Drive to create a non-certified "Windows to Go" USB Drive. The specs seem high enough to not have to worry over the non-certification issue. Space is more then enough for a complete OS and reasonable room left for apps and data. I do computer tech work (semi-retired computer shop owner) a bit, and I wanted a easy way to boot troubled computers. I will have all of my testing/cleaning tools installed on here and hope to find this a suitable quick way to boot hardware. Still reviewing the actual Windows to Go app to make sure it's going to be capable of presenting the host HD, which is still a questions as I found conflicting data both ways. The alternate would be to use one of the other methods of creating a working windows OS on a bootable USB Disk. Since I'm the first reviewer here, I will post back after I get this and get it working.

Cons: Not known until I get it.

Other Thoughts: See pros. Stars my change after testing...
