The Corsair Flash VoyagerTM family of USB drives is rugged, stylish, compact, and reliable, making them ideal for transporting MP3s, digital images, presentations and more. Flash Voyager drives are fully Plug and Play with most operating systems and are backward compatible with USB 1.1. Their durable rubber casing is easy to grip and water resistant.
The Corsair Flash Voyager family now comprises of two outstanding lines of products. The Flash Voyager GT is designed from the ground up for speed, optimizing transfer rates of both reads and writes. Flash Voyager now moves down into the price/performance segment and is available in capacities ranging up to 16GB!
Both the original Flash Voyager and Flash Voyager GT product line are enclosed in the Corsair proprietary all-rubber Flash Voyager housing boasting water-resistant properties, and these drives allows users to carry more valuable data and applications without compromise. Several reviews of the Flash Voyager products have demonstrated the ruggedness, durability, and reliability of the Flash Voyager family. The Flash Voyager has been shown laundered, baked, frozen, boiled, dropped, and even run over by a SUV in many third party reviews. After all the punishment it receives, the drive continues to work.

Canadian Review!! What isn’t there to like about this drive? Throughout all of the performance tests, this drive set itself apart as the one to beat and not one other drive in this roundup was even close to matching the performance figures it put out. Corsair also wrapped it in an ultra-durable ext

ReadyBoost read and write speeds reported in Event Viewer are 2883 KB/sec and 6075 KB/sec respectively. These are not typical file-copying benchmarks though. Files can be moved at around 10 MB/sec. Please note that my machine is a PIII and the USB port is on a PCI card. Also, TrueCrypt is a free software. Buying a flash drive from a accredited store is very important if you are looking for performance.

By far the fastest USB flash I have ever owned, if you are looking for performance, this is it, no question! The encryption is also great for protection your files, although there are some open source encryption software that are comparable or even better in usability and types of encryptions allowed.
I bought this because I wanted a fairly durable, quick, large USB key. My previous 256 MB one just wasn't cutting it. This one's pretty much as fast as a hard drive (but with 0 seek time), and has replaced my external USB hard drive as my way of installing programs on people's computers. I also use it to store a bunch of portable apps, which launch amazingly quickly.
If you're like me, you often damage your thumb drives. I needed something durable that wasn't going to break. This is it. It has a rubber coating on the outside, not a crappy plastic casing like others. I would definitely buy this again.
