Showing 1-10 of 92
Never worked on Apple
6 January 2015
Summary: DOES NOT work with a Mac. I tried on a few. It simply doesn't show up in disk manager or anything. I work in tech and likely would have been able to figure this out of it wasn't a flawed drive or inherent of its design. Flawless on Linux and Windows, but since no OSX, I sold it to a friend.
Summary: Update: I have learned my lesson and will NOT be getting more in the future. The drive starts to fit loosely after a very short time. I have been fortunate, or careful, enough not to lose any data until this drive.
Summary: Even if I got a unit with a bum connector, this item is still twice as expensive as other similar items here on Newegg, and it's claims of providing USB 3.0 speeds are quite a bit off the mark.
Pros: Very small, with a keychain ring attached 0.5" wide x 0.2" high x 1.4" long ( 2.5" long including strap)
Cons: It pains me to write this review because I know Corsair makes good products, I own quite a few including several other USB flash drives. It is hit or miss whether this drive will even be detected. I tried every single USB port on several computers (both USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports), and had about a 50%...
Summary: This was only a waste of about $75, not the worst failure ever. But these drives wasted a large amount of time at work.
Pros: Nothing, slow, high failure rate.
Cons: I purchased several of the 16gb models for our technicians. I grabbed the 64GB model for myself. It worked on PC fine for about a month, Mac it would recognized about 90% of the time. The 16GB drives would not recognized on Mac at all.
Summary: It just stop working after a month of use, just a couple days after Amazon's return policy. Very flemsly, feels cheap, poorly designed. I lost my back up files. Corsair's Tech Support is just as bad. Submitted ticket, never got a response.
Summary: Surprised. I regularly use Corsair in my computer builds (RAM/PSU) because they make quality products. This is obviously an outlier.
Cons: States "high speed usb 3.0" on package but the speeds I saw did not exceed 20MB/s (3.0 should be around 200MB/s) Tried formatting in Fat32/NTFS/exFat with small and large files and nothing helped. I have a very fast Patriot USB 3.0 drive already that I use regularly so I know my computer's usb 3....
Summary: Corsair has better Flash drives than the Voyager Mini series. How is USB "universal" if a Mac can't read from it?
Pros: You will now have a Corsair account as you need one to do an RMA. 5 year warranty
Cons: Only formats as 20.xGB - Regardless of Linux or Windows Operating system and partition type. Not faster than my Patriot or Sandisk 16gb USB 2.0 drives. Metal housing paint scuffs off easily after 1st insertion and removal. Not seen by finder in OSX
Summary: I'm incredibly disappointed with this product, and I feel like I wasted my money. Generally NewEgg and corsair delivers better quality products than these.
Pros: It's small and slender
Cons: It stopped working after 2 months, and the manufacturer has no warranty or return policy on it, which makes me think they know it won't last long. It's easy to lose, but more importantly easy to break. DO NOT BUY IT if you want it long term. I have free 8 GB flash drives that have lasted for year...
