2 out of 5 eggs2 Bad Drives in a row, Glitchy

This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager GT 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFVYGT3B-64GB

Pros: I like how it feels in the hand. looks nice and pro. It does work in usb 3.0 and 2.0

Cons: This is my second review on this product. It's too thick for some ports or cases. Thinner is better? This is the second drive I received of this product and It did not work in my ports until I push the drive to the left and hold it there. Then it worked perfectly, BUT? Who wants a drive you have to hold it in place for it to work. That's crazy !! Also, this drive has eject issues. I close it myself and it still says it's open when it is not. As I have said in my other review, I have used other usb drives in the same ports with no issues at all. just issues with this usb drive. Just wanted to tell others to buy another usb drive or maybe you will be fortunate to get a good one.

Other Thoughts: I RMA'd the first drive for the same problem, and the second one has the same problem too??? MMM??? A bad batch it seams? It cost me $10.50 to send the first drive + $65 + another RMA and $10.50 mmm this is adding up to be one expensive drive. It will not pay for me to send this drive back, again, so I am not going to RMA this, again. I'm just going to live with holding it in or maybe I'll use some scotch tape on it until I'm done with it or get so fed up with it and just throw it away. This is the first Corsair usb stick I have bought and my last one as well !! UNLESS Corsair refunds all my money I have lost AND give me a good working usb 3.0 drive like I wanted in the first place. Is that too much too ask?? Why should the customer lose money because of there bad drives???

This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager GT 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFVYGT3B-64GB

Pros: Comparing this to the Corsair Voyager Slider, both in 64gb installments, I have to go with this new design. No clunky slider mechanism which doesn't stay put.

I prefer rubber shell guard of this drive and cap. Led is not too intense. Read speedy and smoothly. Test with an Airbook and it reads and writes fine.

I feel this drive with its durable exterior and usb 3 performance will last a very long time. This drive is best for important docs, photo backup and music. It's better to go to a slim portable harddrive if you want to move HD movies around.

Cons: It's slower than the speed of light.

5 out of 5 eggsCorsair Voyager 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive

This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager GT 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFVYGT3B-64GB

Pros: I like that this drive is formatted with FAT32. It makes copying large files from my Lenovo laptop much easier. No need to use one flash drive for regular files and another for the large ones.

I use it on a KDLINKS HD700 3D Media Player to broadcast to my Panasonic HD TV. The files always come in crisp and clear.

I have yet to have a problem with sync quality as I have with other flash drives.

Also, there are no problems with my computer telling me it has to repair the drive after I’ve used it on the Kdlinks Media Player. Other flash drives would often warn that the drive had to be repaired..

Of course the flash drive being USB 3.0 with 64 gigs makes the copying process much faster.

I’ve had about 27 gigs on the drive with no slowdown in moving any of the files.

Cons: The clamshell packaging is hard to open.

Other Thoughts: Corsair states that depending on product family, the duration of warranty is from two (2) years to lifetime. To find out to which product family this flash drive belongs, you have to go to www.corsair.com/support/warranty. Warranty returns must be made at your expense.

5 out of 5 eggsFast and Rugged

This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager GT 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFVYGT3B-64GB

Pros: Rugged rubberized housing.
Fast USB 3.0 read/write speeds.
Great overall performance.

The removable cap is also rubber and fits very snugly onto the drive. Even carrying it around in the front pocket of my jeans, it never came off.

This Flash Voyager GT from Corsair seems like a great USB 3.0 drive, it's well built, and it's pretty fast compared to other flash drives I have used. Great for the tech on the go, storing data, or moving large quantities of data around quickly.

How quickly?

* AIDA64 Disk Benchmark *

With block sizes from 256KB to 8MB, the numbers were very tight and average as follows

Linear Read: 145.1 MB/s
Random Read: 154.1 MB/s

Buffered reads had a wider range and were as follows.

256KB Block: 93.6 MB/s
1MB Block: 127.2 MB/s
8MB Block: 142.0 MB/s

The smaller 64KB block size resulted in slightly lower numbers.

Linear Read: 138.2 MB/s
Random Read: 146.7 MB/s
Buffered Read: 67.5 MB/s

With an overall average read access time of 0.83ms. Very snappy.

* CrystalDiskMark x64 *

For the sake of comparison, here are the numbers I got from CrystalDiskMark, again, very good numbers across the board.

The Flash Voyager GT does great, as the above numbers show.

Benchmarks are all well and good, but how does this translate into real world usage?

Transferring a single large video file, in this case a 3.9GB uncompressed Fraps video, averaged as follows.

WD Black HDD to Voyager GT = 143-147 MB/s @ 28.3 seconds

Voyager GT to Seagate SSD = 143-150 MB/s @ 28.1 seconds

Seagate SSD to Voyager GT = 139-147 MB/s @ 29.2 seconds

Groups of smaller files, in this case 50 MP3 files with a total size of about 225MB, averaged as follows.

WD Black HDD to Voyager GT = 6.4 seconds

Voyager GT to Seagate SSD = 2.2 seconds

Seagate SSD to Voyager GT = 3.3 seconds

The smaller files transferred too fast to get a reliable average speed measurement.

As you can see, the drive is plenty fast, and that's really all that matters. I would easily recommend the Corsair Flas

Cons: None really. The drive performed wonderfully in use and testing. I have no complaints about it at all. In fact,

Other Thoughts: The drive was tested on the following hardware.

AMD FX-8350 @4.5GHz
ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0
16GB A-Data XPG Gamer Series DDR3
Seagate 600 Series 240GB Boot/OS SSD
WD Black 1TB HDD

Different files of the same size were used in the transfer testing.

2 out of 5 eggsGlitchy Flash Drive

This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager GT 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFVYGT3B-64GB

Pros: I new it was thick from the start based on other reviews and bought it anyway. Not a big deal to me. It's rubber and it feels good in my hand. I like the light when the drive opens, a nice visual effect.

Cons: It's thick. It works in some slots and in other slots I have to hold it a certain way to get it to work. it's a little slower than I think it should be.

Other Thoughts: Copied 6 GB of music file in 10 min.. I have another drive that is (very close)comparable and that one copied the same exact music file in 6 min.. Gave 2 eggs because it worked, but glitch. It seems like the contacts (where you plug it in to the usb slot) are not right or something. Asked for and RMA, now I'm waiting for a reply.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Peformance

This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager GT 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFVYGT3B-64GB

Pros: Like most Corsair flash usb drives, they just work and work well. I had an older USB 2.0 16GB that failed after four years, but with a 10-yr warranty, I'm sure they would have replaced it. I have the 64GB GT model (this one being reviewed), and the performance is quite good. No issues reading data at over 100MB/sec and writing data at 50-100MB/sec.

Cons: It's big and bulky. Sometimes it's difficult to squeeze it into USB slots due to its size. My model allows me to take the inside part out, where it's smaller. Be careful, though, not all models come apart like this

5 out of 5 eggsIt's A Winner !!

This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager GT 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFVYGT3B-64GB

Pros: Works first time and every time. Has carried High Dollar IT $tuff & detailed Medical Records for myself + Favorite Wife. Each time it has received, carried and transferred all required data without any type of degradation of the records. Well worth the spent money. Get one and tell them that "Pop sent me!" !

Cons: None !

4 out of 5 eggsthumb drive

This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager GT 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFVYGT3B-64GB

Pros: Very well made. Sturdy and well protected in rubber.

Cons: The usb port has to have a lot of juice. My front header on my case is usb 2 and does not run it.

Other Thoughts: This is the best usb drive out there. I have a draw full of broken drives from other drives.
