Mine Melted, seriously.
28 April 2012
Summary: Alright, so I don't normally write reviews, but I'm pretty upset about this one. I bought this massive 32g USB drive with the intentions of using it in my new 2012 Ford Edge since the device could practically carry my entire music library. Unfortunately, after just ONE hot day here in sunny Florida, the device was destroyed by the cars internal temperature. Now, this was inside a closed compartment away from the sun's rays.
CORSAIR Flash Voyager Mini 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive
27 July 2013
Excerpt: This drive is really smaller. You will have challenges finding it in your pocket, if you hold as considerably junk in there as I do. But if small is the major element you're concerned about, this drive wins. Well, it says it is USB two., but don't let that fool you. This drive is very, quite slow. In truth, it is excruciatingly slow compared to the bigger Corsair 8gb drive.
Excerpt: Drive appears to operate fine It only formats to 15.05 which seems deceptive. Virtually painfully slow compared to my Patriot USB drive. I didn't anticipate super speed but I'm disappointed. They want to list it as a 15gb drive Manufacturer Response:Please try the formatting choices in our troubleshooting section of the Corsair forum, linked under.
Excerpt: 1)My corporation paid for it so I didn't waste my personal cash.2)Large capacity3)Small4)Looks very good The pros don't matter when you can't even plug it into a USB slot without having fantastic difficulty. I normally place my thumb drive on my keys, but this issue will snap in half from the weight of my keys hanging down. Very poor style. No LED, just low cost and not up to common Corsair top quality. I am seriously amazed they released this item.
Excerpt: Read quick, stabilized at 20+MBps for massive files, and 13MBps for smaller files Writing is really slow, three-6MBps.The connection with USB port is fragile - there is not metal hold outside the connecting chip - a slight external force will crash the drive. My SanDisk Cruzer and Kingston Diesel were stolen together in my office, needing a USB driver urgently, I bought this 1. I am rather disappointed with the slow writing speed.
Excerpt: tiny, no cap Because there is no metal shell around the USB contacts, any pressure on the case causes it to lose connection to the Pc. I was organizing on hanging this on my keychain, but that is out of the question. Useless to me, but if you want to plug it in--and don't get anywhere close to it--the unit may well be fine. Oops. Now I see this is not returnable.
Excerpt: 1. Tiny2. Price 1. Retractable plug can be inserted incorrectly very quickly (i.e. wrong side up). No tactile distinction among proper-side-up and wrong-side-uptwo. Retractable plug does not lock into location, producing it impossible to insert subsequent to existing USB device - you must remove the present device, plug in the Corsair, and then reinsert exiting device. Not generally possible.three.
