    Corsair Flash Voyager 4gb

    I bought this last April and it has been great. I have recently started to use it as a readyboost device in vista. Now it isn't certified as readyboost capable - yet windows detects it fine and seemingly works fine. Am I going to do any damage and should I be ok to continue using it as a RB device?

    I've read somewhere that RB ready and NON-RB ready drives are physically different, so I don't want to damage my drive.

    I'm probably not gaining anything by using it - but I thought "hey I'm not using that at the moment, I could use it for readyboost"

    Also I've just done a bench, does this score compare to SLC pens or MLC?

    The ready boost certification is just a marketing name for devices which are fast enough for ready boost, there are loads of USB flash disks which are adequate but don't carry the ready boost certification. No damage will occur but the life span of any flash device will be shortened when on ready boost, certified or not.

    I remember reading that it doesn't make an perceptable difference to performance. Nice to have a tinker with though non the less.
