This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFVY3A-16GB
Pros: I like the brand
Cons: Always liked and supported Corsair. Always trusted their products. But recent experience is telling me to think twice before getting Corsair.
This drive was used a few times then stored in drawer for a couple of months. Took it out today, guess what? It's dead. Used on two computers, Windows and Linux. It's just not recognized anymore. I've never had a flash drive fail, this is the first and it's a Corsair.
Other Thoughts: Bought a Corsair LS SSD recently; it's the slowest I've had. Even slower than the Kingston 64G I bought many years ago. The firmware update is also a disaster, it tried to update older firmware to the drive.
Corsair, if you're listening, please step up or you're going to lose your hard earned reputation and customer.
Pros: reasonable price
Cons: Boy, aint this thing slowwwwww!!! Molasses SSD!! I've had quite a few SSDs from Samsung to Intel to Kingston. This one is the slowest ever, in fact, app installation isn't any faster than HD although loading is fast.
Other Thoughts: My first SSD Kingston V100 is faster than this. Ugh, regret getting it. Too lazy to RMA. Corsair is NOT what they used to be! This might be the last Corsair I get.
I have a feeling the Corsair's management team has issues.
This review is from: Intel Pentium G3258 Haswell Dual-Core 3.2GHz LGA 1150 Desktop Processor BX80646G3258
Pros: 4.1G @ 1.05V; 4.7G @ 1.275V stable.
Cons: None, but how about a $20 CPU? C'mon intel! :E]
Other Thoughts: Bought the chip from a local store that had better price; I got lucky, my chip overclocks so well with low voltage. Paired with MSI Z97 and Nvidia 750 Ti, plays all my games maxed or very high, butter smooth. Can't be happier.
AMD gave me problem every time I gave them a chance (most recent A10-7850K, and 280X on the same Intel Z97 board, intermittent frame drop to around 15FPS). Zero issue with Intel as always. I'm done with AMD unless they come up with something revolutionary like their early Barton cores and x64 chips.
