This review is from: Corsair 64GB Voyager Slider USB 3.0 Flash Drive (CMFSL3B-64GB)
The device hold a generous 62 GB of raw capacity (57.6 usable)
The price was less than 75 cents a gig and usb 3.0
The speed is notably different than advertised (see "other thoughts")
The advertised speed at the time of writing was 85MB/s read, 70MB/s write(avg. is 77.5); However, Crystal Disk Mark 3.0.2 64 bit says otherwise: (in mega-bytes per second MB/s)
read write read write
-Seq: 109.0 19.60 -4K 7.003 0.021
-512K: 104.8 0.625 -4KQD32 7.426 0.022
as you can see, the max speed for this drive (Seq) is not as advertised, However, The average of max read and write is 83% of the advertised average
Therefor, I docked only one point for mildly misleading specifications. It is still beyond what i need in a flash-drive.
I tested the slider using a 2nd gen, 8 thread i7, and the only usb 3.0 port on the machine.
