1 out of 5 eggsKeeps Failing

Pros: Rugged rubber casing ensures drive is durable.

Cons: The drives fail after 2-4 weeks of use. I have had two of them now (one from RMA) and both died. The first one produced corrupted data and the second is simply not recognized by any computer.

Other Thoughts: Look elsewhere for a USB 3 flash drive.

Manufacturer Response:

Please contact Tech Support so that we can look into these failures. It is exceedingly rare that a customer has 2 of our drives fail in this fashion.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for the $$

Pros: Speedy drive on USB 3.0 port. Fits in pocket easily and as with all Corsair Voyagers, has no issues with a wide range of weather. For the money and drive size, this was a good buy.

Cons: This one is a bit longer than previous 2.0 versions, not a major issue, but if you're in a tight space, use a USB extender.

3 out of 5 eggsNot My Best Corsair Experience

Pros: USB3.0, rugged case, Corsair reputation (I have four other Corsair USB2.0 drives that are bulletproof).

Cons: I bought it mostly as a reliable portable data bank for sensitive info. Also, this was to be my first test of USB3.0.

I bought the drive in June, and it munched about 1GB of my files yesterday. I was able to recover most of the 'lost' data using MiniTool Power Data Recovery, but it took almost all of yesterday to do so.

Other Thoughts: I may have just gotten a rare defective unit, but after yesterday, I no longer trust it.

3 out of 5 eggsNot a good value

Pros: I bought the original Corsair Flash Voyager USB 2.0 years ago. It was slow. This USB 3.0 drive is still slow but faster than its smaller older brother. I guess a faster slow speed is a positive, in some odd way.

Cons: One inch longer than other large USB flash drives. Too big to be a comfortable fit in a pocket.

Other Thoughts: I have a 5 year old USB 2.0 that is twice as fast as this USB 3.0 drive. Why did they bother making this thing? Get a different drive and you'll be happier.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent flash drive

Pros: Solid construction, USB 3.0 provides excellent read speeds.

Cons: Large, write speeds are slower than many USB2 drives. This isn't a big deal given the price point, however.

Other Thoughts: This is a all-around solid drive for the price.

1 out of 5 eggsNot the Best Flash Drive

Pros: PRICE

Cons: Extremely large for a flash drive of this capacity and EXTREMELY SLOW!!! Several USB 2.0 drives transfer data much faster.

Other Thoughts: You can do better with a USB 2.0 for less money.
