This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager GO 64GB USB 3.0 OTG Flash Drive Model CMFVG-64GB-NA
This is a tiny drive, so you really don't even know it's actually on your key chain. It has a very efficient design and I absolutely love it.
Supports USB 3.0, which allows for very high read speeds. I achieved 120 MB/s on sequential reads, which is insanely fast for a drive of this type.
Reliable. It just works. Haven't had an issues with it at all, whether it's plugged into my PC or Galaxy Note 3 smartphone.
Makes transferring files from your PC/Tablet to your smartphone a snap. It's also great to have this drive when you're on the go, because if on of your friends has pics or videos on their PC, notebook, or smartphone and you'd like a copy of them, it's just a matter of plugging in the Voyager Go and copying it over real quick. No more trying to email yourself files that are likely too big to be emailed in the first place (most ISP's still max out at 10-20MB over email).
Can be used to simply add extra storage to a device that doesn't otherwise support it. For example, some smartphones don't offer SD card slots. I was able to store HD movies on this drive and play them on my smartphone right off the drive without any slowdowns, which is awesome.
64 GB is plenty of space for a small flash drive like this.
Not too many bad things to say about this, but I do have a couple complaints.
No USB 3.0 on the micro-USB side. Granted, my Note 3 is currently the only phone that supports USB 3.0, but this will change in the near future.
Write speeds are still slow when connected via USB 3.0. This is because the NAND is simply not capable of sustained write speeds in excess of 35-50 MB/s. That said, read speeds are way faster over USB 3.0.
Formatted to FAT32 by default. This is no doubt due to the fact that FAT32 ensures maximum compatibility. The problem with this is that FAT32 has a file size limit of 4GB. I ran into this barrier when I tried to copy a 6GB HD movie file over to the drive. Thankfully, this can be easily remedied by formatting the drive to exFAT, which is the default option in Windows 7/8 when you are formatting removable storage. Modern smartphones support exFAT as well so this shouldn't be a problem for most folks.
I highly recommend this drive for anyone that owns multiple devices and has the need to transfer files from time to time. This drive really makes it easy by offering a convenient method to achieve this. The price is also very reasonable considering how much capacity you are getting here.
I would have scored the Voyager Go at five eggs if it wasn't for the minor issues I outlined above. Corsair hits another home run once again.
