Corsair Announces New USB 3.0 Flash Drives
Corsair, the worldwide designer of high quality computer products has this weekend announced they will be releasing new USB 3.0 versions of their hugely successful range of USB sticks the Flash Voyager GT, Flash Voyager and Flash Survivor lines.
The new Corsair line of USB 3.0 sticks are already proving to be some of the best USB sticks on the market. The Flash Voyager GT USB 3.0 gives a whopping four times the speed of regular USB 2.0 drives and up to two times the speed of the standard 3.0 flash drives. The 64GB version of the branded memory sticks has a top read speed of 135 MB/sec and a maximum write speed of 83MB/sec.
This new flash drive is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and when used in this way is one of the fastest USB 2.0 drives on the market. Its rubber design also makes the memory stick water proof and the housing makes it ideal for regular PC and USB users who need to quickly access important data and transport it in a safe and secure way.
Corsair have also taken into account the overall design of the product, making the Voyager USB stick just 73MM long (as compared to 100MM of their last product) and skinny 22M in width (in comparison to 26MM) giving the new models a much sleeker and slim design that is less cumbersome to carry and use than previous products.
The flash survivor USB 3.0 uses the same style that is tried and tested from previous models, with the anodized aircraft-grade aluminium shell being water proof to 200m and with the added feature of it being shock and vibration resistant to help further protect the stored data on your USB stick.
All three of the new models are backwards compatible to USB 2.0 and work directly with Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X and Linux without the need for any drivers or special installations.
Corsair said about their new 3.0 models:
“Our new lines of USB 3.0 flash drives offer great choices for performance enthusiasts and on-the-go professionals.” said Thi La, Vice President of Memory Products at Corsair. “The Flash Survivor and Flash Voyager families are known for their ruggedness, reliability and superior ergonomics, and USB 3.0 speed makes them even better.”
