Corsair Voyager GT

Corsair on Wednesday claimed to have pushed the speed limits of flash drives with the Flash Voyager GT. A new flash controller boosts transfer speeds in both directions, reading at a brisk 34MB per second but writing nearly as quickly at 28MB per second. The jump shrinks the transfer time for a 1MB file to as low as one second versus five seconds for an ordinary drive, the memory maker's tests say.

The drive is sheltered in Corsair's signature splashproof body and has the option of a hidden, encrypted partition for especially sensitive files. 2GB, 4GB, and 8GB versions are already available at prices of $30, $60, and $120 respectively.
