Flash Voyager--China or Taiwan


Nilay

Recommended Posts

I want to ask that which of Corsair Flash voyager is genuine......made in china or made in taiwan.....??

 

Both have very different feel & design. China product is thicker than taiwan product.....why...?? same product but different dimension...!! any company in the world is not making their product like this.

 

& not to forget that Chinese flash voyager has very slow write speed and access time is much longer than taiwan flash voyager.

 

also Where can i get the conformation of S/N......? There is no registration on corsair website.

Can you post a picture of the back of the package for both drives, and the performance should be about the same if they are the same size. Also where did you purchase them from?

I purchased from local shop. I am from India (Gujarat state). I am not able to post the picture of that drive because i sent it to my reseller for replacement (due to slow write speed). But i have the S/N which is 090960070 for 8GB flash voyager (made in china). When i will get the new voyager i must post the pics and performance.

 

also i would mention that previously i used 2 corsair product and it was assy in taiwan and there is no problem at all with that product.

 

I purchased the 8gb flash voyager on 6th May 2009 and sent it for replacement on 7th May 2009 and still it is not come.

I recently received two Voyager GT 16GB assembled in China. I scanned the back of the package. If they are fake, they've done a good job... If it helps, there's no "16G" on the indicator bulb.

Before testing I used the SD Formatter.

Tested them on another computer. Here are the results:

The bad first results and the fact that they where assembled in china made me distrust. And following this guide I must assume they are genuine: http://reviews.ebay.ie/How-To-Spot-Fake-Corsair-Flash-Drives_W0QQugidZ10000000011210190
