Corsair 32GB Flash Drives
Corsair vowed a new benchmark in removable storage today with a pair of extra-high capacity jumpdrives. Both the rubberized Flash Voyager and the water-resistant Flash Survivor both now hold 32GB of data, allowing users even in harsh conditions to carry a large amount of content without fear of losing it through a sudden drop. Roughly 16 full-length movies could fit on a single drive, Corsair touts. The storage is bootable and has enough space that users can fit both a core operating system and needed apps, effectively creating a virtual computer.
The new Corsair units are also shipping at prices lower than top-tier flash drives have in the past: the Flash Voyager sells for $230, while the slightly more upscale Survivor is offered for $250. Both should be available within the next few days and work with any operating system that supports removable USB drives.
