looks gd to me, why cold guys? these are corsair drives not cheap n slow crap branded ones.

they are medium to fast in zippy speed, i have some 4gb ones and they beat cheaper ones easily

Corsair make top quality drives. Disappointing that this has been judged so cold. Heat added.

People think all flash drives, no matter the build quality, should somehow should be sold for £1/GB. Ridiculous.

What are the read/write specs on this then? The 16GB Bytestor Dataferry (crap brand) sells for £17 or less and has 15MB/s write and 30MB/s read.

I have 2 of these i use for work, well the red GT versions anyway. Incredibly fast and reliable so would recommend.

That is nice, but the GT version is different so it doesn't mean much.

It does in terms of very very good brand, shear ruggedness, and overall quality of the product ;-)

No. The Corsair is a well made, good drive, but you will be pressed to get 33MB/s read & 16MB/s write out of the high speed (and much more expensive) red GT version, let alone the 'basic' blue one, which is what this model is. 5 to 6MB/sec write and around 12to 15MB/sec read is more likely.

Incidentally, I don't believe the quoted figures for the Bytestor Dataferry either - these come from a couple of uncorroborated Amazon amateur 'reviews' and could have been made up, or posted by someone with a 'vested interest' - if you ask Bytestor themselves, they will quote you 'official' figures of much less than this.

Sorry to sound like Victor Meldrew.....

not really cheap i bought the superfast red 16gb one for £32 about 12 months ago ?

Actually - the Corsair 16GB GT isn't expensive - it's exactly the same price at mymemory (mymemory.co.uk/USB…ive currently in stock, 21.99 GBP).

Don't know why people don't like the dataferry its cheap & fast! - You beat those figures for £16.99.
These are my figures for the dataferry 16gb.

Using Crystal disk (USB 2 port, fair spec machine) peformance figures are:
Read 26.95MB/s Write 14.91MB/s I'd say that was impressive for 16gb @ £16.99
