I remember, it seems just like the other day that I was amazed with my 32MB flash drive, and how much it could hold, and today I am testing the 32GB Corsair Flash Voyager, which amazed me yet again. While the speeds aren't the best, there does have to be some sacrifice for the massive amount of data that can be stored on the drive. Thumb drives are taken just about everywhere we go. Because of this they are sometimes subjected to less than ideal conditions for an electronic device. With the Flash Voyager line, Corsair has a drive that is water and shock resistant. Valuable assets in today's "go everywhere" world. Coupled with this ruggedness is the ten year warranty that backs up the device, so there are no worries about replacement for probably longer than this drive will be considered large.
