Corsair Flash Readout 8GB

Corsair on Wednesday announced more capacious versions of its Flash Readout USB 2 drive. The storage producer says its drive now comes in 4GB and 8GB models, quadrupling the previous 2GB limit. Speed is unaffected by the extra storage and still achieves sustained 20MB reads and 7MB writes per second. The Readout drive is unique for its incorporation of a Bi-stable Cholesteric Display (BCD) that displays available space and a personalized name for the drive without requiring power; the information lasts for up to a year without any power, Corsair says. The drive plugs into any recent Linux, Mac, or Windows system. 4GB and 8GB models ship today for $90 and $170 respectively.
