3 out of 5 eggsUpdate

Pros: Good read and write speeds, USB 3, usually reliable.

Cons: Original one died after ~9 months, replaced under warranty. The new one they sent me is the bigger, bulkier version. After a year or so, the new one is also starting to develop problems. It frequently freezes when writing and the read/write speeds are becoming inconsistent. Windows XP in particular seems to have trouble detecting it.

Other Thoughts: This version was the same physical size as the regular blue Voyager, the new ones are wider and longer as there is a plastic shell inside the rubber sleeve. I find the bigger version inconvenient as it blocks the adjacent USB port in most situations.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't waste your time and money

Pros: Fast, for the short time that it works.

Cons: Expect to get a few months of use out of these before they fail on you. I've already had to RMA one time. Thought that maybe it was a fluke. No such luck. The second one is failing with the same issues. Lights on drive flash, drive becomes inaccessible on any computer. I've never had a flash drive as unreliable as these. Spending the money to send back the first time may have been worthwhile.... A second time, only to get another defective unit that'll last a few months? What a waste. Corsair's forums are also rife with complaints about these drives. Corsair's response is that they only have a .05 percent failure rate on these units. Yeah right. .05 percent success rate more like it.

1 out of 5 eggsVery disappointed

Pros: Great, until it stopped working completely a little over a month in...

Cons: I've bought three Corsair Voyager GT drives over the years (all 16 GB, 2- USB 2 and 1- USB 3) and none of them really went the distance. Granted, the USB 2 ones I had were put in the dishwasher by my then three-year old....

I bought this one to replace those, as after 6 months they seemed to be alright. However, this thing died after a month and a half of moderate use.

Other Thoughts: So far, I've had better luck with the Adata S102, which has the same amount of storage, and I got them for $5 less.

This whole mess is weird, because up until this point, I really hadn't heard anything negative about Corsair storage. Maybe I'll give them a shot again in the future.

3 out of 5 eggsFast, but didn't last so long

Pros: This little guy was nice and fast. The rubber design makes it great if it falls out of ones pocket and bounces down a flight of stairs.

Cons: No longer works, blue LED won't even light up. So i guess while a few bounces are OK the overall lifetime does not impress. I guess there is a reason it has no warranty.

Other Thoughts: Will be buying the USB 2.0 version. (Yay for a product with a 10 year warranty). Planning to take it apart to see if there is any physical damage.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,

We're sorry for the confusion but you've been misinformed. All of our products have warranties on them, the details are listed on the back of the packaging and additional information regarding the warranties can be found on the Corsair website.

Please fill out an RMA request at http://www.corsair.com/en/support/ and we would be happy to replace the drive for you.

Thank you,
Corsair Customer Support

2 out of 5 eggsVery fast when working, but they stop working!

Pros: Very Fast
Rugged
Looks water resistant

Cons: Stop working after short time
Does not fit in tight openings

Other Thoughts: I am writing a review as a cautionary tale for others looking to purchase this item. Bought one about 6 months ago from Newegg. Worked fine for a month, then died. Corsair was very helpful with the RMA process, but I wasn't thrilled that I had to pay for the postage and packaging to return item. Second one lasted a few months longer, but just died today. I hope third time is the charm with corsair when I finish going through another RMA process. I am going to use the replacement as a freeware utility/Portable Apps USB - I don't want to keep any irreplaceable data on it.

1 out of 5 eggsSlow

Pros: None

Cons: I bought this as well as the blue corsair at the same time to use with new car stereo. This is the 1st device I have purchased that is (supposed to be) USB 3.0 to work with the 3.0 ports on a new computer. When I tried the 1st drive, I thought there was something wrong with the computer drive because it was so slow and data would stop transferring after 20-30 seconds. Turns out the other flash drive did the same, so I tested everything. Both of the corsair flash drives copied at less than 10 mbs from the USB 3.0 port and from a USB 3.0 port. To compare, I tested a USB backup drive that is 3-4 years old and was getting transfer rate of 30 mbs. I am about to ask Newegg to take them back and try another product.

1 out of 5 eggsNice Drive, highly unreliable

Pros: Fast transfer speeds.

Cons: Have had two drives die on me within two weeks of use so far. You can actually hear the drive short out when I plug it in to clue me that somethings very wrong. Don't use to backup data because you'll lose it.

The drive is thick and is too wide to plug into any side-by-side USB port configuration

Other Thoughts: Corsair is still a good company with decent RMA service. They just messed up on this one. I wish Corsair would stop selling this defective product.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,

We're sorry for the inconvenience, please contact our Customer Service Department at 888-222-4346 and we would be delighted to assist you.
