A similar question was answered in the Jack Flash F.A.Q.

But the Flash Voyager is USB 2.0 and should transfer at that speed when connected to a USB 2.0 port. However the performance will vary from system to system.



My Corsair Flash Voyager USB 2.0 Flash Drive doesn’t seem to be working as fast as I thought it might.



The read/write performance of your Corsair Flash Voyager USB 2.0 Flash Drive depends on the configuration of your computer, its processor, memory and USB interface. NOTE: If you are running Windows 2000 or Windows XP and your computer has a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 port, it is advised that you install the Windows Service Pack.

And here are some reviews that may help as well.





Corsair has done for flash memory what they have been doing for computer memory for a number of years, that is produce a product that lays waste to it's competition. When we started the benchmarks we didn't expect the results to be anywhere near this far apart since all three of the drives we put up against the Flash Voyager are good drives in their own right. both the SanDisk and X-Micro are fast memory disk in their own right, but the result of our test just adds more credence to the fact that Corsair is a master when it comes to producing the fastest memory whether it's for a PC or your digital camera.If this memory was any faster it would require you to wear a seatbelt!

The Flash Voyager was one of the first flash drives that I have seen that used a rubber casing and I was fairly impressed by the flash drive itself. It was the only flash drive in the review which water had no effect on. The Flash Voyager was able to be used immediately after coming out of he washing machine while the other two flash drives had to dry out for a day. I really had a hard time determining which flash drive was the true champion because each flash drive had different features that I liked. If I had to choose just one flash drive to be the champion, I would say it was the Corsair Flash Voyager. It is extremely durable while still remaining cheap enough that anyone can afford one.




Corsair has done a good job with the Flash Voyager drives. They are the fastest USB Flash drives I have looked at. The software security feature is nice since it does let you look at both the secure and unsecure partitions at the same time. The rubber covering of the drive provides the drive with a protective cover that keeps the device from damage from water and being banged around. Mine is on my key chain and has taken quite a beating without having any issues. Bjorn3D Seal of Approval




With its water-resistant feature, the 512MB Corsair Flash Voyager certainly has an edge over competing USB flash memory drives. It survived all our three water resistance tests, even a 30-minutes rinse cycle. The Flash Voyager is also a very fast drive, especially with large files. It managed to write them at over 4.6MB/s! With smaller files, it was not so fast but that's expected. It still did pretty okay at 0.5MB/s.Corsair packed a pretty complete package with the 512MB Flash Voyager. Not only do you get a lanyard, you also get a USB extension cable, which can be pretty useful. Reviewer’s Choice






Backed by a 10 year warranty, the Voyager really shined in my eyes. The exterior rubber protective covering offers both water-proof and shock-resistant capabilities, all while looking very stylish. Measuring in at only 3", the drive is small enough to fit comfortably on your key ring or around your neck, using the included neck strap. The included CD offers an innovative utility program with some nice features. The instruction manual is also included on the CD, further lowering manufacturing costs (maybe by a few cents, but hey, every little bit counts). Should 512MB not be enough memory, or perhaps too much memory, Corsair offers the Voyager from 128MB versions all the way up to 2GB models. If you know anything at all about system memory, you know that Corsair is the industry leader, hands down. Corsair has passed their reputation along to their line of flash drives, resulting in an excellent product. Seal of Approval








I think it's almost essential for any worker in the industry or student in school to pick up one of these and make good use of it. The days of floppies are gone. With the Corsair Flash Voyager, you can make the drive bootable and carry along all your key software. Give a few more years and we may have complete operating systems on these drives.

The performance hasn't been matched by any other competitor and the stakes have once again been raised. For that, the innovative Corsair Flash Voyager has earned itself the Overclockers Online POWER Award






Corsair has taken the worries out of being careful with a flash drive with the shock and water resistant rubber coating. Beyond the tough exterior, the speeds are very impressive.

The trade off of size for durability is one I am betting lots of folks will be willing to make. I think you will be hard pressed to find a better built, better working USB flash drive on the market, but then again this is Corsair, and we have come to expect the best from them. I was so impressed with the Voyager I had no choice but to award it 5 out of 5 stars... "Highly Recommended".




Corsair memory has proved to us in the past to be an extremely reliable and fast system memory solution, after examining the Flash Voyager 512MB we see Corsair's flash memory is no different. The thumb drive was water-resistant, shockproof, and offered fast read rates along with write speeds. Although some Corsair's XMS modules can be pricey, the Flash Voyager products are just the opposite. The 512MB version of the Flash Voyager can be found for about $60. Corsair currently manufacturers the Flash Voyager in 128MB, 256MB, 512MB, 1GB, and 2GB versions.
