Why oh why did they make it a cap design and not a push out like the Sandisk Extreme, will give it a skip simply because of this.

"...in 128GB and 256GB flavors."

Flavors? Seriously? Geez, I hate it when people use the term "flavors" to refer to non-edible things. What you should say in this instance is "...in 128GB and 256GB capacities."

Capacities. Not flavors. Got it?

Have you ever actually tasted a 128GB flash drive and compared it to the flavor of a 256GB flash drive?

[OH BABY!! Now that's what I'm talking about! I don't know whether to plug it into my computer or rub it on my nipples!]

That's incredible. I used to have a 2GB USB drive during drafting school, and I remember thinking about how huge it was, at least until we started on the big projects where a single autocad file would top 500 MB...

If only that'd been around back then...

That's pretty Lame actually (I jest)
Check out the Mushkin Enhanced Ventura Ultra?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226459

240GB / $142
120GB / $72

450MB/sec Read
445MB/sec Write

Better speeds than Corsair
Better Prices than Corsair

AND it's Windows 2 Go Compatible!
But so is the Corsair from what I can tell so far (just a guess)

So why hasn't the Mushkin been reviewed here yet Paul?

The Corsair looks nice and all but why are the 4k read/write iops not listed?

Here they are at Newegg for the mushkin>

4K random read IOPS (UASP): up to 23.5K
4K random write IOPS (UASP): up to 39K

Raw Speed isn't everything though...
I might get a Corsair just for the better Warranty!

I'd like to see "Battle of the USB SSD Thumbdrives" here before Christmas!
The Mushkin gets pretty Hot during use
I'd like to see Temps compared as well!

I've never considered temps before, although I really don't use USB drives for more than OS installs anymore, anyways.

The speed is all well and good if it supports usb flash protocol, otherwise the drive is just a storage tool. Without the protocol, installing os's from it becomes difficult.
