550 Days Later: Corsair Voyager GT USB 3.0 32GB Revisited
17 April 2013
Excerpt: Today we are revisiting the Corsair Voyager GT USB 3.0 32GB. We originally reviewed it in October of 2011 , and we're taking a look at it again 550 days later. In the beginning of October of 2012, the drive ceased to function. When plugged into either a USB 2.0 or 3.0 port on a variety of computers, the drive would simply flash a blue light rapidly. No OS or BIOS could detect it, including Windows 7, Linux Mint, Mac OS X, and Parted Magic OS (Linux).
Conclusion: Corsair's Voyager GT 64GB USB 3.0 pendrive is fast, robust and competitively priced against other premium sticks. Consider it if your work involves moving large files around on a frequent basis.
Conclusion: Overall, what can we say that the tests did not show? The Voyager GT outperformed the data Corsair provided, which was a little surprising, but in a good way. We were wondering if Corsair put tentative numbers or low averages of vast amounts of testing as their guaranteed speeds to give a little leeway in their production units. Either way, the Voyager GT does its job and does it very well!
Summary: Corsair's first USB 3.0 flash drive is still a champ of durability and overall performance, but real world write speeds have become lax and the 32GB model competes too closely with its non-GT cousin.
Pros: Fast read speeds, Also fast write speeds (64GB), Durable as ever, 5-year warranty
Cons: Synthetic writes are far from real-world performance, 32GB writes barely faster than non-GT model, Blocks vertically-stacked USB ports, Lanyard, extension cable not included
REVIEW: 32GB Corsair Voyager GT USB 3.0 Flash Drive Impresses
31 October 2011
Excerpt: Today we will be taking a look at Corsair's new Flash Voyager GT USB 3.0 32 GB USB Flash Drive which was officially announced on September 9, 2011. The product made its debut in retail a few days after the announcement, we've had it these past few weeks after that.
Conclusion: For a USB 2.0 16gigs with 10 years of warranty+ extension cable and a lanyard and which is “shockproof” and durable, you got yourself one of those drives which will be with you for many years to come. Corsair also comes with a good replacement track record as well. Just keep in mind that due to the size of the drive, it would be a tight squeeze if you want to connect a USB device after connecting this, but that’s more of a minor inconvinience rather than a con.
Corsair Voyager GTR 32GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Review
18 April 2010
Summary: The Corsair Flash Voyager GTR offers outstanding performance in a stylish, yet rugged package. You’d be hard-pressed to find a better performing USB 2.0 flash drive. Being backed by Corsair’s good name and excellent warranty certainly doesn’t hurt either.
