Hot Deal may be too HOT

Patrick M., Newegg
23 June 2015
  • Pros: The price was a very good value($30) for a 128GB flash drive.
  • Cons: I use this drive for backup as I imagine most would. During my initial backup to the flash drive, I transferred over 100GB of data. Transfer rates were normal for a flash drive, i.e. relatively slow, so the entire initial data transfer took several hours. After the transfer was complete, I remove...

Not good, not bad

Dan Stewart, Amazon
21 May 2015
  • Summary: Using this as an external HD to boot OS X on a MBP. Speed is a bit less than expected. Testing at 14 mb/s write and 42 mb/s read. Feels cheap, slider is decent though.

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.
  • 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 ...
  • 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 tran...

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...
  • 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 plai...

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...
  • 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.
