Disappointing speed 10/05/2011
This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFVY3-16GB
Travel proof coating.
Speed comparable to USB 2.0, not USB 3.0. This product is not achieving the performance promised.
Misadvertised, this cannot be a true USB 3.0 item.
I purchased this drive because of it's USB 3.0 claim and the performance is simply not there. I attempted sequential writes of large files from an SSD to the Corsair Flash Voyager plugged into the USB 3.0 port of my motherboard and windows 7 (64bit) reports the throughput consistently drops and stabilizes around 26MB/s. I rebooted and copied the same file from the same location to an external usb 3.0 hard dive and never saw the throughput go below 75MB/s. There is clearly a problem with the Corsair Flash Voyager here and I'm afraid I can't recommend it to anyone.
You may simply have a defective drive. Let's try replacing it before we condemn the entire line of USB drives please ;-)
