Summary: Was a decent flash drive for the money, however, keep in mind it's not very durable. Kept it clean and dry in my pocket and it only lasted about two weeks before becoming a brick. This might be useful for something to just sit around the house though.
Summary: This was a great device! Fast speeds, great size, and very durable. It seemed like it would be rugged, but apparently travelling from my house to my church once a week was too much for it, although it did last a year and a half. I purchased this because it was USB 3.0 and 16 GB, which was great for taking videos home and copying them to my home computer. I had an old USB 2.0 that I used for two years before, (and still works fine!
Summary: Purchased two of these NEW, and both have failed and send back to them for warranty. Got two replacements and at the moment both are working - though I no longer put anything important on them and use them much more sparingly. Perhaps there was a significant batch problem with them, as a huge number went to refurbishment. At least they replaced under warranty. I will not purchase Corsair again for a while.
Summary: Received the units, and one of them was DOA. I guess quality control is not something that Corsair focuses on. There's no reason for a brand new flash drive to be DOA. Other than this, the other 4 seem to work OK. But Corsair should really be checking these units before they ship to make sure they actually work.
Dont fall for USB 3.0 when it comes to flash drive

Summary: I recently brought the Corsair 16GB Flash Voyager USB 3.0 Flash Drive for a reasonable price but a price higher than the USB 2.0 version. Note: I bought this device from Amazon and not 3rd party vendor. As for the device itself and USB 3.0. Here are the test results. 1) I connected the device to my USB 3.0 port and checked what Windows recognized it as. It was showing up as Mass Storage Device while it showed Voyager 3.0 when connected to USB 2.0.
Summary: Pros - Performance: 1) The USB 3.0 protocol of this flash drive, makes file transfers visibly faster than my other USB 2.0 drives. 2) The outer body of this drive is made of a soft rubber that makes it shock proof and provides a good grip in your hand. Cons - Design: The only cons are in the design of this product, which in my opinion is pathetic: 1) The body is kind of roundish, due to which I cannot plug this drive "alongside" other USB devices in my laptop's adjacent...
Summary: Excellent speed on this drive. Used only by 2.0, but read speeds were great. Maxed out 2.0 connection anyways. Write speed around 20mb/s i believe. My only problem was I used this drive with a small set of keys attached. For most uses, great value for 3.0 and 16gb. What I don't like... It's not very rugged. the thick rubber coating would have you think otherwise. however, I used this attached to my set of keys.
Pros: Speed, value.
Cons: Ruggedness (don't use with keys and be cautious about it bending at all while inserted).
