SanDisk Ultra Dual 32GB USB OTG Flash Drive Model SDDD-032G-A46
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Nicely Designed OTG Drive 05/21/2014

This review is from: SanDisk Ultra Dual 32GB USB OTG Flash Drive Model SDDD-032G-A46

Pros: Size - This can be a plus or minus depending on who you are trying to please. I mean small is nice but easily misplaced/lost.
Design - I like the retractable end cap design. Some ma not but face it, there are no end caps to lose.
Design - I like the slot for a lanyard but it would have been nicer if one were included
Warranty - a 5 year warranty

Cons: Lack of USB 3.0 support - I am not sure if any OTG Flash Drive supports 3.0
Size - this is not quite as compact as my other OTG Flash Drive I have.
Use - limited to devices on the OTG device compatibility list.

Other Thoughts: There is a nice overview of the drive found on the 16 Gb version's page.
Visit - www.sandisk.com/dualdrive for a list of compatible devices.
Overall I like this device a lot. While it is not quite as small as another OTG flash drive I own, it is a nicely designed drive. I like the retractable end caps. One might say they cannot be called end caps in that they do not cover the ends, but merely protect them from damage.
It would have been nice had SanDisk included a small lanyard with a keychain clip or eye on one end.
The write speed maintained about 12.5 Mb/s while the read came in around 20 Mb/s. My other OTG flash drive tested with speeds of 14.0 Mb/s write and about 30 Mb/s read or a tad bit faster. Maybe not USB 3.0 speeds, but satisfactory nonetheless.
The compatibility chart listed my older Motorola Xoom as compatible. I found it was not compatible with my other OTG drive until I installed the Nexus Media Importer App from the play store. I can't say it would help the compatibility issue with other devices, but I have read where others have had similar results with this App. It worked perfectly on my wife's Acer Iconia.
As other have mentioned there are many ways to transfer files between PC and Android devices; wireless, wires and flash drives. If you are here shopping for an OTG Flash Drive, then you probably already feel you have a need for this type of device. I have used mine to store several movies on. It comes in handy for those trips in the car to entertain kids on the tablet. Given SanDisk's reputation for reliability and the price, I don't think you will be disappointed with this little gem of a drive.

5 out of 5 eggs Corsair Flash Voyager GO - Updated 02/20/2014

This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager GO 32GB USB 3.0 OTG Flash Drive Model CMFVG-32GB-NA

Pros: + Ultra compact package
+ USB 3.0/2.0 compatible
+ FAT 32 formatted for the most in device versatility
+ Keychain / end cap lanyard

Cons: - Device compatibility
- Packaging

Other Thoughts: This is an update from a previous review that I did on this flash drive. At the time I could not access the drive via my Motorola Xoom tablet. Everyone in the family has iPhones so that was not an option there. Being a techie and not easily dissuaded, I went back to the internet and forums and found the app, Nexus Media Importer on the store. I was apprehensive at first but decided it was easier than rooting my tablet. I inserted the Voyager GO and opened the NMI app and there was the flash drive with my movies and songs. I was now able to access both file types. I even loaded some pictures back and forth between devices. I thought due to the Xoom being a bit old tech, that I would probably need to copy any songs or movies to the tablet first and then view. Not the case! I was indeed able to watch movies and listen to songs direct from the flash drive. I can now write several movies to the drive and my sons can access them on trips. What a great find! I would still recommend checking the compatibility chart found on Corsair's web site first. I did read another reviewers comment on the packaging and have to agree with them. It may be due to the possibility of shoplifting such a small device in a store. It is a pain to open the package but definitely worth the effort. I am changing my previous rating up an egg. I highly recommend it and think you will too after you use one.

4 out of 5 eggs Corsair Flash Voyager Go 32Gb 02/19/2014

This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager GO 32GB USB 3.0 OTG Flash Drive Model CMFVG-32GB-NA

Pros: + Ultra compact package
+ USB 3.0/2.0 compatibility
+ FAT32 formatted for the most in versatility
+ Keychain / end cap lanyard
+ Extra end cap as we certainly will need one

Cons: - Device compatibility

Other Thoughts: When asked to do a review on this flash drive, I did a bit of research on the internet. The idea and design of a flash drive with one end USB and the other end micro USB seemed like a brilliant idea. An idea that one would say, Why didn't I think of that? When I received the drive, I downloaded a couple of movies in MP4 format and some MP3 songs to the drive. Transfer speeds were in the range of 14 - 20 mbps. I sent a 2 Gb movie in about 2 minutes. Now the tablet that I use is a Motorola Xoom that I have enjoyed for a couple of years now. I have not felt the need to upgrade to a newer model based on my usage. When I tried to do the file transfer to my tablet, I found I needed a file manager app. I decided on ES File Manager based on reviews I read. Now I was all set but found I still could not access the Voyager GO. I then thought I better check the compatibility list found here:
http://www.corsair.com/otg-compatibility-list
I did not find my Xoom on the list. A little more research on the internet and I found my Xoom does not have the micro USB port enabled for flash drive support. I am able to transfer files from PC to the Xoom using the cable that came with the Xoom. Based on this, I thought I would be able to use the Corsair Voyager GO also. To anyone thinking of purchasing one of these drives, I suggest checking your unit's specifications and also the Corsair compatibility chart first. I did find some File Manager software that is able to transfer files between devices via your LAN. In my opinion this is a very nice flash drive that was well thought out and worth considering if it meets your file transfer needs. I held back one star because I was not able to fully test the unit.
