Team Color Turn 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive (Purple) Model TG008GE902V3
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Nice robust design, lives up to its claimed speed, and in fact surpasses the read speed by nearly 25%.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Crystal disk gave this a solid 20MB/s read and 125MB/s write. Good enough for me!

CORSAIR Voyager Mini 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFMINI3-32GB

3 out of 5 eggs Nice design... but 07/28/2014

This review is from: CORSAIR Voyager Mini 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFMINI3-32GB

Pros: Nice compact design.
Keyfob with small keyring.
Definite tight fit.
Detected quickly and easily in Windows, Linux and OS X.

Cons: Slow compared to other USB drives.
No Activity Light.
Metal casing scratches easily.
Rubber longevity? See other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: The Corsair mini 32GB USB 3.0 is faster than a USB 2.0 drive but not nearly as fast as expected. Crystalmark gave this drive a seq read speed of 41.6 MB/s (500MB data) and a seq write of 14.91 MB/s. Using the same port and testing regimen with a USB 2.0 drive yielded figures of 20.82 MB/s and 7.33 MB/s read and write respectively. So the Corsair has about twice the speed of a comparable USB 2.0 drive. I ran the same test again using a Silicon Power 32GB USB 3.0 drive and got 87.9 MB/s and 55.83 MB/s read/write speeds, so the Corsair is significantly slower than this especially when it came to writing to the disk.

The only advantages of this drive over the Silicon Power would be the physical size and the keyring. The Corsair is about a quarter of the size of the Silicon Power, and to be honest the Silicon Power wouldn't win any beauty or indeed design contests, it is however, fast. The keyring is an excellent buying point but I wonder as to the rubber attachment's longevity, also the metal surrounding the drive is attractively finished but seems to scratch very easily and when hung on a keyring, with a bunch of keys, I have no doubt it will degrade rapidly. The lack of an activity light is a major issue for Mac users, Macs lie, a Mac will display a flash drive as ejected before it has finished flushing the drive cache, checking the drive's activity light is the only way to be sure the drive is actually ready to be physically removed.

If you're looking for speed I'd look elsewhere, if you want a drive that can be kept on your keyring for convenience this may well be your solution.

Intel Celeron G1840 Haswell Dual-Core 2.8GHz LGA 1150 53W Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics BX80646G1840
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Workaday cheap processor very suitable for a basic desktop machine.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This processor benches at over half the performance of a 6 core AMD 1055t from a few years ago, 2837 v 5066 according to cpubenchmark. It is more than capable to undertake the usual desktop PC chores.
