I really want a 256gb one, but that price... damn. Guess I'll stick with 16 and 32 Amazon Basic thumbdrives, for now.

At those prices unless you absolutely need the smaller form factor, you should just buy a portable external USB 3.0 drive. You could easily get at least 500GB for close to $100 or less, even less is you're willing to go USB 2.0 and put up with the slower speeds.

That mini with the black anodized aluminum and blue pcb is downright sexy.

With two dead ones behind me, I'm never buying another Corsair flash drive again. Great customer service, though.

What are the R/W speeds on these, and any review of a flash drive without R/W speed info is just an ad masquerading as an article! Why are flash drive manufacturers allowed to not publish the actual R/W speeds of their products, in their ads and on their packaging, forget about USB's theoretical maximum R/W speeds, what about the True R/W speed of the "reviewed" flash drive?
