I have been looking to buy a 32GB USB portable device, and wants something of good quaility and fast read and write speed.

When I have been doing some research it seems like Kingston and similar brand has quite low transfer rates.

The best Kingston I have found was:

Kingston Datatraveler DT200 32GB with 20 MB/s read and 10 for write. Link (swedish), price is at $111.

However this Corsair seems to have much better performance with 34 MB read and 28 MB write, and also good reviews:

Corsair Flash Voyager GTR 32GB (link), available for 709 SEK ($101).

Is this the one to get or do you have any other recommendations?

According to specs you mentioned, seems corsair is the best bet

Well I am sorry for the non english links, but I really do not know any non local websites that I would actually use for my purchase.

However, from your link on Newegg here is the Corsair I was looking at:

Some people seems to had problems with the device broke down.

According to me, they both seem pretty decent and with good ratings and write/read speeds

After some more research I have found that neither Patriot and Mushkin USBs seems to be generally available over here. Mostly Corsair, SANdisk, Kingston, Lacie and some more.

It is a bit strange that the customer feedback of the Corsair product on Newegg was kind of negative, while the reviews were very positive.

Corsair, as far as i know is a good brand-
Well, reviews are good, but feedbacks bad, that may mean its not durable, weird though.
Better stick with good reviews and feedback

Yes, Corsair USB should be of very good quaility, and I must admit I "like" them. ;)

That is of course very reasonable. However, it was only 8 people that had actually voted very low scores on Newegg and those would perhaps be the one that got bad units. People that just got working USBs is perhaps not willing to go back and place a vote?

fair enough, not all products are perfect-
Some may have bad units, as you said.
As long as i see fairly positive comments i wouldn't worry.

Patriot makes quad-channel drives that are supposed to be very fast. I haven't tried them, but I've been pretty happy with the 8GB Patriot drives I've got. Here's a link to their 32GB drive:

Hello, and thanks for the link. The Patriot looks good, is quite small and seemed to have good performance (however slightly lower than the Corsair), but the main problem is that not all USB brands are available over here. I have not seen any of the mayor webshops offer Patriot unfortunaly.

I ended up buying a CORSAIR Voyager GTR 32GB, and it has been working great now for almost six months. Very large and impressive speed.



The large size makes it not problem to store all kind of work related tools and ISO files and similar. The only thing I have been a bit afraid of is loosing the little head, but it is still around so far. :)
