I have the 16gb version, best flash memory I have ever had. Sustained read of about 25mb sec and burst read up to almost 30mb a sec. As with a lot of pen drives a great danger of losing the cap.

Bet that wasn't cheap! ;-)
#4
Anybody know whether these are compatible with Vista readyboost?

hiya,
are you sure about them speeds ? i had a flashvoyager 16gb and it was doing about 21 mb sec not quick at all
in the end i sold it on fleabay and got a 8gb corsair flashvoyager GT now that is quick!
excellent drives though! :)

I was just thinking about whether they did a water resistant one. Was thinking about going on the Dragon's Den with a patent in hand. D'oh!

Seems a little on the high end but 4gb is a ton of space. Might just go for it and hope I don't lose it.
#7
The design of these is great for dropping but awful when you put them in a pocket with a tissue in as it sticks and doesn't come off too easily.

Apparently not according to http://www.grantgibson.co.uk/misc/readyboost/?make=Corsair

I know my smaller version isn't aswell.

There are water resistant and splash resistant USB pen drives. I'd like a fast Vista Readyboost compatible one (not sure why :P) with at least 4GB storage where you can't lose the cap because it's attached to the drive or the cap sticks on to the end. Losing the cap will drive you mad when you get fluff and other rubbish in it from being in your pocket.

Good deal though. I'm tempted.
#9
Just ordered! I think it's the same price on ebuyer too. I needed one of these after a dodgy experience with my Western Digital MyBook..
#10
Not sure if they are still doing it but a year ago I lost the cap for my Voyager USB Pen Drive. Sent an email off to Corsair and got a few spare ones sent to my address for free.
#11
Sounds like decent customer support to me :)

I'm going to look for an 8GB version of this pen. I'd love 16GB, but 8GB is fine for portableapps.com , other utils, some films and music.

edit : found the 8GB Corsair on amazon for £41, has good reviews. I think I'm gonna order one of those :)
#12
Ebuyer is the same price without postage, but obviously more when you add the P&P... :)
#13
I don't think the price is super special - they've been there or there abouts for a little while now - but it is great value (possibly the cheapest around) and what I will say is this is a fantastic drive!

It's fast, it's very robust and it's waterproof! I bought myself a 4GB Voyager when £70 was the cheapest you could get one anywhere and still use it now on a daily basis (I'm a web designer and amateur photographer so it sees a lot of use).

It's even been through the washing machine and came out completely fine! I don't think it would survive another wash now as the lid doesn't fit as snugly but it would survive if i dropped it in a puddle or something. I've also seen videos of people running over their in their car and they still worked :?

Voted hot simply because people should buy one of these over the non-branders that sell for a few quid cheaper! It's worth the extra for the speed alone!
#14
Rugged it is, but I also found it to be more prone to collecting dust, fluff. This is because it spent most of the time in my jeans pocket, with tissues etc and the very nature of the outer material Black Rubber.

Yup sure, I have software specially for flash drives, of course it can depend on which usb port it is connected to sometimes. Some computers are faster when the back usb are used. :thumbsup:

If you want a really waterproof one, check this out!

Awesome, not worth double the money though. I work on a network, do these software boots conflict with that? It would be nice to be able to boot the occasional handy app which I can't install on the unit.
We have 4gb of ram so it's not a hardware problem

You need the Voyager GT for that. The GT is also the fast one and they don't seem to quote speeds for the vanilla Voyager!
#19
Benchmarks - here. Write speed is under 10MBs at the best.
#20
4gb is a ton of space


Sounds like someone doesn't take many photos(RAW photos take up 25+ mbytes) or have an mp3 player then...:p

Hey - you can buy two of these for less than the price of one 8gb pen...

Wow, that sucks.
#22
This looks like a really good deal. I remember back when my 256MB one costed around the same price as that.
#23
Guys... just to pre-warn you...

Have you noticed the model number on that website CMFUSB2.0-1GB

Are you actually going to get the 1GB version? :?

I know it initially says 4GB but the model number is definately 1GB at the top (but at the bottom it does seem to correct itself!).

You should be ok!

Don't worry, it's fine. I ordered this exact USB key last week from Amazon. It is definitely the 4GB version.

Based on my weeks usage so far, I can highly recommend these.

This build quality is solid...

How long to fill it up? I want to put a gig of music on, and the rest will be movies.

Look at the benchmarks linked to above.
For larger files you’ll get close to 10MBs so 1GB = 1:40, 4GB = 6:40
The smaller the files the slower it will be.
#27
Should be okay, I will render animation direct to it.
#28
i have to say, like in my previous post that i was really disappointed in the speed of write of these drives, i use my flash drive with portable apps and it used to take portable firefox 30 seconds to load (compare this to a 5 second load on the GT version), and this is on a USB2 core2duo machine!! pants like.
god help you if you load / save more than one thing at a time too!! :)

i don't want to appear to be slating these pendrives because until i started using portable applications i was more than happy with them and they are well made and you cant beat the 10yr warranty offered.

i would say get a flashvoyager GT if you want any sort of speed on these devices, they are the dogs! :) much more expensive though, 8gb is about £80 - £90

regards..

Not sure why you need this?

1. devices you usually plug this into aren't normally rugged
2. they're not designed to be used for long term storage

Just strikes me as a sales gimmick

Not sure what you mean by the first point. It's rugged on its own and you carry it around without the laptop/PC etc.

No flash drive is really designed to be for long-term storage use, really. They have a finite number of reads/writes, though you could argue this about HDs too as they will eventually die. Not sure if your comment was aimed at all flash drives or just the Voyager.

1. It's the flash drive that gets carried around, not necessarily the things they get plugged into.
2. What is? Hard drives fail too! With any system setup, the idea is to back stuff up. I have at least two copies of important stuff, if not more. ;-)

Sucks? I looked at loads of flash drives a few months ago. For most of them the manufactures don't even publish read/write speeds which tells you all you need to know about how fast they are. Those I could find with advertised speeds were most 12Mbs read and 3Mbs write. So a write speed of nearly 10Mbs a second in real world use is really very good compared to most drives on the market.
#33
i have both this blue voyager and the red GT one, both in 2gb variants.

They made a change to this blue voyager one to use slower memory - mine gets 20MB/s and the GT one gets 25MB/s, however the new blue one is a fair bit slower.

GT is compatible with readyboost.

Now only available through a Marketplace seller at a greater price plus P&P
