Cons: Separate cap
Other Thoughts: The reader does what it's supposed to do. Loads and works quickly. An extra HD card could of course be used a an extra thumb drive. The only "con" might be I dislike separate, losable caps. The device is not as small as it could be, but easily fits into camera bags.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager GO 32GB USB 3.0 OTG Flash Drive Model CMFVG-32GB-NA
Pros: Includes 2 connectors
No blinky light
Other Thoughts: Corsair knows how to make memory. This flash Voyager is not only an excellent device technically, but it’s also very clever. Corsair has squeezed 32 GB of memory into a device the size of a stick of dentyne™ gum. Each side of the drive has a different USB plug: one end micro USB, the other standard size. The micro USB end has a cap that rotates over it, like an old-fashioned cigarette lighter. I’m not a fan of loose caps (I ALWAYS lose them), but this one rotates on the string chain that captures it for a keychain or other cord. (Unlike the photos here, Corsair has kindly attached the string to the body and cap.) An extra yellow cap is included in case you somehow lose the black one. The full-sized USB end is capless.
The stick is 35mm (about 1.5") long. It is wrapped in a sturdy metal jacket that looks and feels (dare I say) near indestructible. Stepping on it did no damage. It won’t block an adjacent USB port because it fits completely inside the female port and nothing sticks over the sides. It boots faster than any USB device I’ve used (never displayed the “installing device driver” message). On Win 8, it comes up immediately. On my Asus tablet, it took 4 seconds to prepare.
The Voyager transferred over 8,000 files in 1,100 folders (8.28GB) in about 30 min across a network from a slow NAS. It transferred 10GB of data from a local hard drive in 16 minutes. Speedier is better, but it’s fast enough for what I do.
The only thing I don’t like is it seems manufacturers are loathe recently to include the little blinky activity light. I really like the indication that file transfers are going on.
This review is from: Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus 2014 - 3 Devices
Pros: Fast updates
Fast install / uninstall
Cons: MUST register to complete installation
Other Thoughts: One of the best on the market. I've used every brand and this is the only installation that never comes back filled with viruses. (Hmm... maybe I should use "the major brand"...
Also is a fast scanner and doesn't slow down older machines significantly like many others.
