Summary: I was looking for a durable Flash Drive and this unit is definitely durable, but I was really surprised by how large it is. It eclipses the 5 year IronKey it replaced in size. Other than size, it is a nice product.
Summary: This review is for the 256 GB variant. It is large, both in capacity and also physically. While the capacity is nice, the physical size is undesirable, and so I can only give it 4/5 stars. As of April 2014, this is the fastest advertised 256 GB USB 3.0 flash drive that I could find. I haven't benchmarked it with a USB 3 interface, but the performance is acceptable enough for me. It works fine on both Windows and Mac OS X. The size and the price both need to come down.
Summary: The speed stated by Amazon and the back of the actual package are different, with Amazon claiming higher. Under the specs on the Corsair page you will find they give the Amazon numbers. In CrystalDiskMark (64bit) in Windows 7 Professional I get a Read at 287.2 MB/s and a Write at 181.7 MB/s, using USB3, of course (not USB2, which will top out at about 30MB/s). That is SUPER fast.
Summary: Replaced my tired four year old Supersonic with this and It wrote between 150 and 170 MB/s when I put my backups on it. Pay attention to the physical width of this one, it is bulky but fits fine on the top of my FT-02 case
Summary: The Corsair is the best flash drive for copying your pictures! I got a new Dell laptop and wanted to transfer all of my pictures (2,000 plus). The quality was awesome. I'm always crafting using pictures for collages, calendars. I would recommend this highly to anyone shopping for a Corsair USB 3.0 Flash Voyager GS.
Fast, cheap and reliable... with an excellent warranty

Summary: The only problem I ever have with these drives is they often don't quite meet the advertised speed specifications. The trouble with speed specifications is that they are hard to measure accurately as the speeds differ a fair bit on different USB 3.0 controllers. Annoyingly the read speed on an intel system was some 20%+ higher than on two different AMD systems (means it was as fast as advertised).
Summary: Overall it's a good product. Fast read and write speeds. Nice aluminum casing. Cons: It was much bigger then I expected. Also the top comes off a little to easy. Worries me that it might eventually get lost.
A quality, durable, fast-transfering, high capacity USB flash memory

Summary: The Voyager GS 256 Gb flask USB 3 memory has high capacity in a small protective aluminium housing, with high sped transfers. It is more compact and efficient than a portable USB hard-drive, though more expensive. It is serving its purpose as storage for my photography where my image library has become too large for my computer storage, and I use it to store various stages and variations of photo enhancements.
