More expensive and slower than Corsair Flash Voyager GS
27 June 2014
Summary: The Corsair USB 3.0 Flash Voyager GS (CMFVYGS3-256GB) @ 300 read/ 180 write is faster than this Flash Voyager GT @ 230 read / 130 write, and the GS is cheaper too right now with a sleeker metallic finish. This model is currently overpriced and not as fast.
Summary: I picked up a few of these at a great price and they're fast. The rubber housing seems durable for the daily grind and since it's a Voyager GT model, it's a lot faster than the other offerings out there. Read and write speeds are surprisingly quick. I would definitely recommend this drive if you need large but compact storage at a decent price.
Summary: My current star rating is solely based on design, price, and accessories. It looks heady duty enough that i wont be scared walking around with 256gb on a keychain. The price was beyond amazing when it was on sale ($56). i took away one star because it says it will ship in a week or 2 and it does NOT come with a lanyard. why dont thumb drives come with straps anymore? they are very useful, especially with higher priced drives. i will update the review once i test it out.
