2 out of 5 eggsTerrible quality and fails after 5-6 months

Pros: Good while it lasted. Nice rubbery feel and cap.

Cons: This is already my second one RGA'ed from Corsair. Either the internal chip fails or the USB plug fails. PC will stop recognizing it and all data is lost. Paid for shipping and received another just to have it fail again in less than 6 months. I don't understand why the quality is so poor for this flash drive. I've build plenty of pc's with Corsair memory and it runs flawless.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat buy

Pros: Rubber casing helps seal out moisture and protect against cracking or breakage.

Cons: Only 64GB; not much of a complaint.

Other Thoughts: I sprang at the chance to purchase this thumbdrive when it was available for $56. I have complete confidence in Corsair, a manufacturer specializing in memory. I giggled getting such a bargain.

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage

Pros: It feels sturdy.

Cons: Less than a year of use and it's toast. This is the first USB flash drive I've EVER had fail on me. Will not work in any computer no light nothing.

Other Thoughts: If you look at corsairs site you'll see many people have had the same problem. Corsair says they'll replace them, but they can't replace the data you had on them. If you need storage you CAN'T depend on go ahead and get this.

1 out of 5 eggsDead after 4 months

Pros: Size, price, keychain hole doesn't break as its rubber and flexes.

Cons: Started acting flaky after two months and as of yesterday (just short of four months or use) can't format the drive. I have looked online and I see many others with the same issue. NewEgg RMA is past and I can't find this product in the drop down list on Corsairs site. Scam. Don't buy this drive.

Other Thoughts: Again, don't buy this drive.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsUnit Failed

Pros: The unit seemed to be a decent unit for the first few months.

Cons: I never had a chance to even come close to filling it up. Yesterday I transferred photos to it from an SD card (only 2.4 gb) and it crashed. It is unable to be saved or reformatted.

3 out of 5 eggsDON'T PUT IN YOUR POCKET!

Pros: Please read ALL of this review - This is NOT a complaint, but you need to be aware of it.

Very fast read speed.

Corsair Tech Support was great even after 4 RMA's (however, they refused to issue a cash refund since the original NewEgg Warranty was only 30 days and it first failed at 50 days)

Works great - BUT....
DON'T BEND THIS DEVICE !
DON'T CARRY THIS IN YOUR POCKET !

You have been warned !

Cons: Not a huge issue, but slower on writes than some other USB3 drives and all of the Voyager line is physically larger when compared to many other similar devices. (2 times the size of a cheap pocket flash drive and 3 times the size of one of the capless folding type drives.)

MAJOR ISSUE - I had to RMA FOUR of these in less than 60 days use each. The drive is fine... the problem is that the case is fairly large and is SOFT RUBBER. If you put this in your pocket, the device will flex and crack the circuit board and you will be unable to access anything on the drive.

I had some serious discussions with Corsair Support in which they denied any logic flaws... But, if you look online, there are quite a number of complaints on the entire line of drives as well as another brand with a similar soft rubber case. With this many failures, I was CERTAIN that there was a problem.

Other Thoughts: After so many problems, I thought it was a chip or manufacturing problem until I ran across a comment where the user was able to get back into the drive by squeezing the casing really hard and someone else suggested "Reflowing" the device. That's when I realized the real issue was that there is NOT a rigid casing inside the rubber.

When I got my 5th RMA, I used the device as a FlashCache on my PC and it has been GREAT.

So - Great drive - but DON'T BEND IT !
