mcaleck Posted July 14, 2009 Share Posted July 14, 2009 Today I bought a Flash Voyager 8GB stick in the hopes of using it to move large files (i.e. over 4 GB) and I was sadly disappointed when it turned out that its write speed is not 16MB, not 13MB (as it's stated by many retailers), not even above 10MB, or 8MB as it is unofficially alleged by the Corsair Guru of this forum, but a mere 5MB AT BEST!!! This is very annoying not only because I feel I've been ripped off but also because cheap regular brands now do 6MB/s. I mean c'mon!!! What's the point of having a 8, 16, or God forbid 32GB of this when it takes about 20 minutes!!! to move 4GB? Not to mention, when I start copying it thinks about 10 seconds or even more before it begins actual copying. This is so exasperating! And yes, I've already tried the SD-Card formatting software that is recommended here but it didn't help. And sorry, but I don't want a replacement and go through this ordeal again to have a 8GB key with 8MB write speed!. Honestly, this is ridiculous!!!
