Summary: Does not achieve read/write speeds even with USB 3.0 and ASUS Z97-Deluxe DDR3 motherboard. Researching to see what may be the cause but transfer of files was below 11MB/s which is horrible for USB 3.0, my NAS is faster on read/write.
Summary: This item is a TOTAL dud - don't buy it. I bought two of them on sale for "$59.99 each save $30". I should have bought none and saved $120. To make it even worse, the first one I plugged into my computer did not initialize. A complete failure, not even recognized in Windows Disc Manage. The second one showed "drivers loading" right away, and looked good. I tried writing a video file of 2.62 GB; it started out at about 60mb/s then dropped to 31.3mb/s.
Pros: Large capacity
Cons: Very slow transfer speeds; writes at 31.3mb/s not acceptable for a "USB3.0" claim.
Summary: Failed after three days. When plugged in, it will display as a disk with contents but within 5 to 10 seconds, a message states that the disk has been ejected. Further attempts to remount fail. It appears to overheat and this is what causes the problem. It happens in my Mac and PC exactly the same way. I want to return it, but my information (about 30 GB worth) is still on there an is the property of my employer.
Summary: Never mistreated it, used it and stored properly. It just died. I bought it new from a reputable local vendor. I can't return it because it has my data on it. I realize these should not be treated as permanent storage, but expect more than two months' use out of one of these.
Summary: First i'm going to say that though I didn't buy this drive on Amazon, I did buy it from Newegg so I do own it and can comment on this drive. As the title says, stay away from any Corsair Voyager Sliders with the model number "CMFSL3B". The B revision is horrible. Write speeds tend top out at 16MB/s (and slower). Corsair obviously isn't going to advertise this poor write speed or customers simply wouldn't buy it.
