I have an 8Gb Flash Voyager I purchased a little over a year ago. I bought it because I needed a way to transfer and store save files from my PS3, and it also came in handy for everything else too. I started using Windows Ready Boost but eventually stopped and my Flash Voyager has been sitting underneath my monitor ever since.
So what's with the "Flash Voyager doesn't like neighbours" you might have wondered upto this point. Well, I wanted to use Windows Ready Boost again, but my motherboard only has 4 USB slots, 3 which are is use. They are positioned in 2 rows of 2, like just about every other motherboard out there.
So the ultimate problem is that my Flash Voyager is TOO FAT! it literally forces my other usb port device to a side and at a scary angle, and the Flash Voyager is barely entered the slot, so I stop trying for fear of damage or breakage.
Flash Voyager is a beautiful stylish design but simply is not practical and is a bully to other USB devices. The problem is the rubber coating and the shape. Image these brackets on their side (). Although primitive you can see that it gets fat in the middle, it's that fat in the middle where it starts forcing other USB slotted devices aside.
I've had a look over the Corsair website and the "Padlock 2" also has the same design and therefore the same problem.
This could be due to my motherboard having unusual spacing on USB ports, but I don't know. For referance my motherboard is an Asus Crosshair.
Thanks for reading, and if a Corsair rep reads this, please me know
