Awesome Review and awesome USB drive, I wish the build quality was a bit better, but as far as speed and price is concerned, you cant beat it.:wink:
Thanks again for the great review.:clap:

Thank you both.
Alan the built quality is very good, metal chassis and so far zero fingerprints.
The only thing that i can verify how long will last is the cap, but I still have a the plastic cap from my ten year old Kingston 2GB flash drive, so I think that this it wont be an issue for the Voyager GS.

Finally for the price that I can find it here in Greece, it’s simply an excellent choice, 40 euros cheaper than the Lexar P10 and not many other drive in the same size and speed that are close to this price*.

*OK I might be missing a few.

And it’s not really any faster than old, but fast, USB 2.0 flash drives (using SLC flash) with very small writes.

Correct, but USB2 will almost never get read/write speeds more than 30-40MB/Sec.
But if the price is right, i would be more than happy to sacrifice some performance, in order to have more space.

Great speeds BTW.

I am not sure I want to sacrifice anything, I want build quality and speed and reliability. Is that too much to ask, oh yeah, more than 128gbs of storage also.:wink:

SLC USB drives for really fast small file writes would cost at least as much as iPad Mini.

For the time being, it’s best to use fast SSD drives with SATA connectors as USB 3 drives. Cost of 250GB 840 EVO plus cheap USB 3.0 enclosure = approximately US$200.
