2 out of 5 eggs 8Gbyte but slow 01/10/2009

This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model CMFUSB2.0-8GB

Pros:

Has 8 Gbytes and is cheap - with free shipping.

Cons:

Very slow. I read Newegg reviews that it's only 7 Mbyte/sec write. I have an old 512 Mbyte Corsair stick that's about 6-7 MB/s so I figured that's fine (sure there are drives that hit 10-15 Mbyte/s write). WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT! Trying to back up a 200 Mbyte directory with 486 files takes only 30 sec on the old 512 Mbyte drive, BUT IT TAKES NEARLY 2 MINUTES ON THIS 8 GB DRIVE. So we are talking of a write speed of about 100 sec for 200MB or ** 2 MB/sec **. Suprisingly the read speed is lightning fast to restore the same 200MB back to the hard drive takes only 5 sec! or 40MB/sec read. Luckily I found a friend who bought it from me for $10. Now I need to get the rebate.

Other Thoughts:

Rubber case makes a good lint collector :-)
Try it and see. :-)
