Dissapointed

Jason H., Newegg
17 December 2014
  • Summary: Although I'm disappointed with the write speeds, the read speeds are about 29Mbps. However for the price I paid it's hard to complain to much.
  • Pros: Well built, dependable, cheap
  • Cons: Not getting anywhere near USB 3.0 write speeds.

The USB connection kept popping out like a turtle's head

F. D. Walz Jr., Amazon
7 November 2014
  • Summary: Unit won't stay "closed" when in your pocket. The USB connection kept popping out like a turtle's head. Also, the unit's rather bulky. Returned it for a Lexar Jumpdrive for a few dollars more, and the Lexar has both encryption software and a visual percentage indicator on the unit.

Get the Voyager GO instead

Nick C., Newegg
5 November 2014
  • Summary: The Voyager GO is only $7 more (at this time) and offers (in most cases) double the performance, as well as a smaller size and MicroUSB connectivity for your smartphone. If you're in the market to buy a USB 3.0 drive, I'd definitely recommend the Voyager GO instead of the Voyager Slider. The Slider is serviceable, but, I think it would be an easier sell if it was roughly $20 cheaper, leaving the GO as more of a stretch/price premium over it.
  • Pros: Lots of storage for a pretty attractive price. Thick and somewhat built well, would easily take dropping and probably a wash cycle or two. Capless, retractable design means you won't have to keep an eye on a cap to protect the USB interface. Has a loop for a lanyard and a blue activity LED. Good USB 2.0 performance.
  • Cons: Abysmal USB 3.0 performance. Comparing this device to a Voyager GO 64GB flash drive, the GO outperforms it by nearly double at all tasks, and the GO is not that much more ($7 as of this writing). I tested in 2 ways, using a synthetic benchmark as well as several 'real world' tests using file transfers to the drive. Using UsbFlashSpeed.com's free benchmark tool, the Voyager Slider had an average of 14.15 MB/s write and 61.99 MB/s read using a USB 3.0 port. Comparativel...

Tastes like chicken

William F., Newegg
17 September 2014
  • Summary: For the propeller heads, here's my shakedown for performance on four various USB 3.0 flash drives, a USB 2.0 flash drive, in addition to a HDD and SSD using a USB3.0 interface cable for comparison purposes: -Corsair Voyager 32GB USB3.0- Max Transfer = 82.8 MB/s Min Transfer = 54.0 MB/s Avg Transfer = 66.9 MB/s -Corsair Survivor 32GB USB3.0- Max Transfer = 79.8 MB/s Min Transfer = 79.2 MB/s Avg Transfer = 79.5 MB/s -HP/PNY X702W 32GB USB3.0- Max Transfer = 95.8 MB/s Min...
  • Pros: ~Rubberized grip. Makes it easy to remove (but not actually any easier to insert since you would be pushing opposite direction of the slider doing this method.) ~Activity LED ~Better than USB 2.0 performance ~Fair price for 32 GB of storage space
  • Cons: ~Mediocre transfer speeds for a USB 3.0 device (see Other Thoughts) ~Plastic feels flemsy. I could probably break the case apart with my hands with medium effort. An impact from a heavy object would most likey shatter the case. ~Activity LED is very bright and distracting if the device is in plain view. While connected to my TV as a media device, I cannot stop staring at the blinking blue strobe light burning my retinas. You cannot disable this LED. ~Formatted space i...

Corsair Voyager Slider 64GB 3.0 Flash Drive

Thomas L., Newegg
14 September 2014
  • Summary: The slower speeds is why I had to give it a 3 egg rating plus you can find 64GB drives cheaper and probably faster. Here are my results with Atto benchmark tool: Filesize / Write Speed / Read Speed (MB/sec) 0.5 / 208 / 3319 1.0 / 444 / 6243 2.0 / 890 / 12106 4.0 / 1820 / 19359 8.0 / 5184 / 26491 16.0 / 3846 /34942 32.0 / 7858 /38641 64.0 / 9051 / 42010 128.0 / 11883 / 41412 256.0 / 12141 / 41562 512.0 / 12999 / 40184 1024.0 / 12959 / 41110 2048.0 / 14186 / 40108 4096.0 /...
  • Pros: Good size for backing up files or what ever you need it for Feels pretty rugged and could withstand a drop Very Competitive price per size Recognized in 3 different operating systems (Win7, Win8 and Win 8.1) 5 year warranty
  • Cons: Definitely not the fastest 3.0 drive I have used as other reviewers have stated. Although the read speeds are pretty snappy the write speeds are only slightly faster that USB 2.0.

Corsair Fail

Joshua Paniza Colanggo, Amazon
12 September 2014
  • Summary: I did a thorough format since I don't trust the quick format option with an exFAT filesystem but I encountered a problem, so I did the format several times until I changed to NTFS. Sometimes my computer won't detect it and man, I always hope that the data are still intact because I already encountered four times drive corrupt with this device.
