This this is very stout and large. Heavy metal construction. Unfortunately the cap does not fit over the end so you might lose it if you're not careful. But it's rubberized in the inside of the cap so it grips the USB connector, so I think it's very unlikely that it'll fall off. For me, I put the cap in a drawer and I have this connected to the USB stick 100% of the time: StarTech.com 6-Inch USB 3.0 Extension Adapter USB 3.0 Port Saver Cable, Black (USB3EXT6INBK). No need for a cap!
Definitely recommended. I've outgrown a very trusty Patriot 128 GB Magnum (which is why I bought Patriot first) so this was the next step up.
Right now I'm copying files from that Patriot at about 5 MB/s, and from my home server at 55 MB/s (over a 10/100 network) for a combined 60 MB/s as an unofficial test. I don't care as much about speed as I do about capacity anyway, but perhaps that info will help make a decision.
Yeah, I went over-the-top with the "mom" thing.
Positives are, you can put it on a lanyard and use it for self-defense, like a high-tech nunchuck. It'll still work, after you wash your assailant's blood off. It's capacious, and even though I have only the 256GB version, that's more than enough for just about any use I require. It's really a mini, portable data storage VAULT that you can have confidence in, versus most of the fragile, plastic units that make you sweat if you have important data stored on them. The bright blue activity LED can light-up a hotel room with enough ambient light to see details. In fact, I have taped it over so as not to give away my position to the covert foreign agents following me around for the secret codes I have stored on the Corsair Voyager GS keeping the world safe from certain Armageddon should they fall into the wrong hands.
If I can trust it to keep the world secure, you should be able to trust it to keep your off-line pron collection safe.
Sturdy drive, feels very solid.
I have been looking for a while for a high capacity (256GB+) USB drive with good performance, I haven't found that unicorn yet.
This drive has an average 197 MB/s read speed, and a 20 MB/s write speed after writing 350GB to it, on Linux (Kernel 4.6.2) on properly supported USB 3.0 ports (XHCI driver on AMD, Intel and ASMedia chipsets). I was really expecting something around 80 MB/s write speed at least, from the price and advertising/claims from the manufacturer.
Turns out, it is very slow for writes, but! Compared to other drives, it is actually acceptable. Still, no match for a DIY USB drive made from an M.2 SSD and USB 3.0 adapter. Very disappointed that USB drives are getting left behind (Some are now powered by an SSD controller, including from Corsair). I'm even thinking on getting a high capacity/speed SD card with an USB 3.0 reader at this point.
I will keep the drive as it is compact, doesn't require other cables (However it blocks other nearby ports due to its width), and sturdiness of the case.
