Corsair has introduced a new Flash Voyager GT flash drive with a capacity of 16GB. This unit is water- and shock-resistant, and comes with a 10-year limited warranty.
“People expect Corsair to deliver the highest performing products,” said Jim Carlton, VP of Marketing at Corsair. “That’s why our latest Flash Voyager GT offers both higher speeds and higher capacities than standard USB drives, making them ideal for discerning customers for whom high performance is a key criteria” added Carlton.
The new 16GB Flash Voyager GT uses specially-selected, hand-screened MLC NAND flash memory in a dual-channel configuration, combined with a high-speed controller IC to deliver rapid data reading and writing speeds significantly faster than most USB flash drives. Whether you’re backing up data or transporting office files, pictures, music or even full-length movies, you can “store-and-go” faster with the 16GB Corsair Flash Voyager GT.
The new 16GB Flash Voyager GT also utilizes Corsair’s proprietary water- and shock-resistant, all-rubber casing so that users with busy and active lifestyles can be confident that their data is secure and protected from damage. Independent reviews of Flash Voyager products have demonstrated their ruggedness, durability, and reliability. Flash Voyager drives have been laundered, baked, frozen, boiled, dropped, and even run over by a SUV! After all the punishment they receive the drives continue to work.
Additionally, Corsair introduced a Flash Voyager Mini flash drive with a capacity of 16GB:
Corsair also announced today that it is expanding its best-selling Flash Voyager Mini product family with a new 16GB model. The increased capacity is possible due to the latest Chip-on-board technology, which allows for a huge number of movies, music, photos and personal documents to be stored in a format that’s 1/3 the size of typical USB Flash drives.
The Flash Voyager Mini utilizes a cap-less retractable USB connector, which easily opens with the flick of the thumb, and its ergonomic rubberized housing makes it easy to connect and disconnect from any computer. The rubberized housing is also durable, making it an ideal flash drive for users with busy and active lifestyles.
