Corsair Voyager USB 3.0 (32GB) review: Corsair Voyager USB 3.0 (32GB)

  • 1

The Good Extra protection from the rubber casing.

The Bad Competition offers better speeds for not much more cost. Lid is easy to lose.

The Bottom Line With a bit of searching, you can find Corsair's latest online for AU$69. But for a whole AU$10 more, you could get significantly better performance out of Patriot's Supersonic, which has the same capacity.

Corsair's Voyager series bounces. That's because it's encased in rubber, which, while making the stick thicker and thus potentially interfering with fitting other USB sticks in your system, protects it more than usual from drops.

It's quite long, too, with 8cm still poking out from the port after you've plugged it in. While you can attach it to your keyring or otherwise through the loop in the top, Corsair still hasn't addressed the issue of the lid being easy to lose.

The Corsair only really manages to nudge up on 4K random reads. Considering the fact that its competitors come in generally faster and not that much more expensive, the Voyager's only advantage is its rubber shell — if you want better speeds, you'll need to upgrade to the GT version of the drive that promises 135MBps reads, 83MBps writes and doubles the cost.
