  • Summary: One major flaw this stick has is that it doesn't seat very well in a USB port. It wiggles around in every port I've tried it in, and usually it doesn't make good enough contact to be recognized by the computer until you wiggle it around a bit or unplug it and reinsert. This also means that I can't put it on my keyring with any keys or on a retractable lanyard because any amount of pulling on it will wiggle it loose enough so that it loses connection.

Meh

Matthew Edwards, Amazon

  • Summary: It's small, and looks nice enough, but Within a week's use, the metal sheath came off and I had to super glue it. And now, it has finally stopped working. Luckily I did not have anything valuable on it at the time. I cannot recommend.

  • Summary: The drive works at it is supposed to but the casing falls apart way too easy. The gray part you see in the pick is just held in by glue and slides right off when I pull the drive from the USB slot. I have to squeeze the case in order to not pull the key ring and case off of the drive itself.

Meh... ufortunately

  • Summary: Now I have to be careful to keep the casing sliding off and it not detecting. Corsair makes great products in general but this specific one I can't recommend
  • Pros: Nice size/form factor. Seems it will still be reliable enough, and the metal casing SEEMS nice but...
  • Cons: ...the casing slide right off after one use in a "virgin" USB port. I had to slide it back on and squeeze the casing to stay on and now it's still loose and doesn't always detect. Metal is sadly flimsy. :( Mediocre speeds, I have seen some USB 3.0 drives that are actually much worse, but I would say 3/10 for performance

Damaged after less than a week

Kathy D., Newegg
8 September 2014
  • Pros: updated review see below
  • Cons: This is an update to a previous review: I was originally impressed with this drive until i got it out of my pocket today (less than a week old) to use and found the USB connector to be completely collapsed. Luckily I was able to bend it back and it will still function but I will not put it back on my key chain after that. I also did not put it through any uncommon use, just in my pocket over the weekend. Now with the result of just one week of use and the failure to h...

Voyager mini 32 gig.

Phillip W., Newegg
29 July 2014
  • Summary: I have other corsair USB 3 drives I tested this against and all other USB 3 drives outperformed it. I don't know if they changed the memory in them or not. All my others maxed in the 40's with a constant speed of 39.7 at the lowest. The speed I got from this one is on par with a few of my best USB 2.0 drives in a USB 3.0 port. I have no less than 10 USB 2.0 drives and 5 USB 3.0 drives this was the slowest among the USB 3.0 It was the fastest among the USB 2.0 drives.
  • Pros: Small form factor A key ring you will need so you don't lose it. USB 3 Durable . 28.8 Gigs useable.
  • Cons: The best write speed I got was twenty megabytes constant. It would start at 24MBs and go down till it reached 20. Read was only maxed at 152MBs. This is not USB 3 speeds. To me USB 3.0 speeds are in the high 30MB range to 60Mb.

Cheap Construciton

Philip A., Newegg
23 July 2014
  • Summary: Poorly made, but it still works
  • Pros: Fast, works
  • Cons: Cheap construction. The aluminum casing dents and bends very easily. At one point the electronic bits pulled out of the aluminum case when I pulled it out of a computer.

What a joke

Ricky T., Newegg
22 April 2014
  • Summary: I bought this for my truck, just for music. Unfortunately, my truck really doesn't like it, nor does my wife's BMW. Works fine on the computer, but that's about it. I was hoping for USB 3 write speeds, but the USB3 interface is completely pointless since it will hardly write at USB 2 speeds. I've gone back to my old USB stick, and will keep this for other tasks. Buy something else, seriously.
  • Pros: -It holds data -It's small
  • Cons: -No protection for when it's in your pocket, even though it's made to be on a keychain. Bends too easily, making the keychain idea a horrible one -It's horribly slow. Actually slower than a 3 year old Toshiba 16GB USB2 drive I have.
