pepak Posted December 29, 2006 Share Posted December 29, 2006 Hi! I received a brand new Corsair Flash Voyager 4 GB as xmas gift. I have been playing on and off with it, and I am rather disappointed with its speed - according to the specs, it should manage up to 33 MB/s on reads and 16 MB/s on writes. While the read speed is as expected (at about 15 MB/s - I do have rather low expectations about speeds companies claim), the most I have seen is about 2.7 MB/s on writes - and that's sustained speed on long files. I tried the stick on four different computers and the write speeds ranged from 700 KB/s to 2.7 MB/s. All of the computers have Windows XP, USB 2.0 ports and all regularly manage at least 15 MB/s on my external USB harddrives. One of them was a clean install of the operating system. So my question is: Under what conditions can I expect speeds at least remotely resembling those advertised? I specifically requested the Flash Voyager under the impression that it would be fast; as I said, I expected that the advertised speeds wouldn't be attainable, but I hoped for at least 50% of them.
