I know its a refurb but still guaranteed and still a great price!!

I'd buy, but I don't need.
Bit worried about that word, though "Refurbished"......

Not sure about refurbished memory,any techies out there like to comment?

Well done on getting in there first.

Good price, but that has to be one of the fugliest looking USB Sticks I have ever seen, the rubberised housing on it reminds of of those cheap handles screwdriver sets you see in pound shops.

Don't need it (got 2 x 16gb and 1 x 8 and 1 x 4 already !!! BUT - they are all used, TBF) but just bought one.....

these use to be one of the fastest usb drives didn't they?

Yeah. Very fast and robust.
A good item

Warranty 30 Days oO

I wish i got the 32gb one they had on offer for 19.99 on Christmas day! i didn't read the bit where it said it was one day only

i was going to buy on boxing day...

I had the 8GB version a couple of years ago and they're surprisingly slow to copy files to compared to some of the better cheap usb memory sticks you see on here. Also, after about 8 months of keeping it on my car keys, the rubber detached itself from the usb and you could pull out the insides. A bit of hot glue would have fixed it (Thats what was holding it in there in the first place from the factory)

I had the 32GB one from Xmas day and it lasted about 5 hours before stopping working, no longer recognizing the disk. Not worth the risk for a refurb . . .

Was going to post this deal myself. Bargain.
Though I don't need one ><
Refurb. will just mean it's a customer return, so can't be sold new.

4% cashback too.

The 'blue' Corsair flash drive is fairly average, actually, not slow, but I think you are thinking of the 'red GT' version, which is the one that has the reputation for being really fast.

Good price at £11.99, but refurb? Manufacturer's 30 day warranty - thanks, but no thanks.....Was going to add heat, but 30 day warranty!!!! WTF!

Hmm... I just ordered 3 of them, was going to blast them with H2testw then start using them properly.

Makes you wonder why they are 'refurbs' - Corsair is normally the epitome of quality and reliability when it comes to memory devices, I always choose them for RAM, USB drives (I have a Corsair Survivor which is truly amazing) and SSDs.

Anyone have any information on the 'refurb' nature of these drives (i.e. customer returns, failed memory chips which the manufacturer replaced, damaged cases, etc.)?

I have just posted a deal here for a new one of these at 7dayshop (even though it's currently cold for some reason) if you don't trust the refurb... personally I have no idea about refurbs from crucial!

i think this has gone up in price (by £2), so im expiring it

Got one of mine today. H2testw results:

Test finished without errors.
You can now delete the test files *.h2w or verify them again.
Writing speed: 15.2 MByte/s
Reading speed: 26.5 MByte/s
H2testw v1.4

No errors and a blazing fast read and write! I know this doesn't prove they won't fail soon but as sticks for transporting data in the short-term this is highly promising!
