Pros: works right out of the box on winxp with sp2. no drivers needed for installation. connected my optical mouse and corsair flash voyager to it with zero problems. my linksys wpc54gs v2 wireless pcmcia adapter also shows litte/no sign of performance degradation.
Cons: slightly tight fit with the above mentioned wireless adapter installed along with the usb pcmcia card on my dell c610, but works just fine. certainly not enough of a problem to discourage anyone from getting this card.
Overall Review: didn't perform any speed benchmarks with the corsair flash voyager, but daddy is happy as no matter what, it'll still be faster than the integrated usb 1.1 option that comes on the dell c610.
amazing product - when it works.
Pros: Blazingly fast read/write speeds with small and large files. USB "extension" cable is a bonus. Tech support via phone and website is top shelf. They really try to make their customers happy. Blue activity light. Ten year warranty.
Cons: There is a known issue with a number of these drives and has been validated on corsair's tech forum. Write protection errors keep coming up and cannot be fixed. Some people here have even mentioned them. Tech support was easy to work with and they want me to RMA the drive. Hopefully the next one won't have this problem. Lanyard loop could split, but never happened with mine. Somewhat "fat" so you might have problems with close usb ports. Could easily lose the cap but corsair will send you a new one for free. Security/encryption sotware isn't built in. Either carry the CD with you or leave it on the drive.
Overall Review: While I noted certain "cons" of the drive, none has affected me save the write protection errors. Again, corsair will most likely let you RMA the drive with ease. Product would have receive five eggs had it not broken on me. As always, newegg dominates.
