This review is from: CORSAIR Voyager GT 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFVYGT3A-64GB
Pros: Moving ~20gb around from 1 box in my environment to another (when not doing this across the wire) Its not too uncommon for me to be getting an average of 25-35mbps.
Cons: On my workstation, I seem to be having an issue with keeping USB3 connectivity to this stick -Looking at some of the other reviews, it doesnt seem as though Im alone on this'n, Aside from that my only other complaint is how easily lost the cap becomes, would be nice if they had a lil chain, string or some piggybacking arrangement to keep the 2 not too far away from eachotherREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Soo this is a bit of an intermediate solution for me to get my feet wet with networked storage (at some point in time, Ill be migrating this all downstairs to the rackmount HP cabinet in my basement, after I land on the right rackmount case) -But for the time being, this case sits on my coffee table in my upstairs lab with 6 spindles in it running FreeNAS with several CIFS mounts on it looking innocuously chill, plenty of ventilation (switch on the back to adjust speed), from where its at in comparison to where my desk is situated at -I dont hear any noise from it, Lighting -When youre moving several terbytes overnight in & out of this box, really you only need 2 lights -Power & disk activity, they pull this off well

Garden variety USB Jumpdrive (Boot OS)
Fractal Design Node 304 case
Long story short, if youre looking for a NAS case in a typical home environment -This works well in my opinion
Cons: Hypothetically if my motherboard had 7 sata connectors, I coulda seen myself popping 2 holes in the back of the case to keep an SSD suspended above the motherboard for purposes of ZIL caching & it woulda been nice to see the manufacturer have this insight -But, not that big of a deal... afterall, I dont have a 7th sata port yet :)
Other Thoughts: Not really a con, but the drives do mount a lil weeurd... :/
Its not the end-all-be-all, but I likes... =)
Pros: Ehh... It looks kinda cool?
Cons: Wanting to run opensource firmware on this thing? Look elsewhere -This combined with so so performance in my environment was the reason it wound up going back...READ FULL REVIEW
