Pros: An 8gb file can now be copied in 1:39.
Fairly easy setup if instructions were corrected.
Cons: First card I received was bad and it took from 3/19/14 when the RMA was approved until 4/4/14 to receive the new card.
The new card wouldn't work when installed according to the enclosed instructions.
Other Thoughts: The first card I received did not work. It would install, but windows said it "may not work properly". I tried it in a different machine as requested by StarTech tech support. Still did not work. StarTech sent me a new driver but that would not install saying the already installed driver was newer. I RMA'd the card back to NewEgg. It took an inordinate amount of time to send out the new card with 5-7 day shipping even though I am eligible for 2 day shipping through shoprunner. When I finally got the new card, it installed correctly but would not detect any devices I plugged into it. Another chat with tech support. The instructions clearly state that connection of a 15 pin SATA power connector is optional and only needed if using bus-powered USB devices. Tech support say that is not accurate and that I needed to plug power into the card. Once I did that the card worked fine. I feel like this was a long drawn out fiasco, but in the end the product is working as intended.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The sapphire is very big and it's just a pretty piece, very sparkly. My wife loved it. Does not appear to be cheaply made.
Cons: Wish the chain was slightly longer.
Other Thoughts: Overall very nice. My wife wants to know where I bought it so that she might do some additional shopping.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFVY3S-16GB
Pros: It has a rubbery exterior and rubber cap.
Cons: Does not run at 3.0 speeds. In fact it doesn't run any faster than my other 2.0 flash drives. I bought a 3.0 expansion card and installed it and am getting speeds of >50MB/S on a 3.0 external HDD. Of course I don't expect it to run as fast as an external drive, but it should be at least twice as fast as an old 2.0 flash drive and it is not. I am sending it back to Corsair for replacement.
Other Thoughts: I will update when I get the new one from Corsair.READ FULL REVIEW
