As USB drives get larger and as features like Vista's ReadyBoost become more prevalent, you'll need faster read/write speeds to get the best performance. Lucky for you, Corsair just announced their new Flash Voyager GT line of USB drive. The speed comes from the hand-selected NAND flash for each drive and the newly designed flash controller. Along with their enhanced dual channel and interleave memory technologies, the Flash Voyager GT drives provide speeds of up to 34MB/s read and 28 MB/s write.
According to Corsair, the Flash Voyager GT is up to 5 times faster than a typical USB drive. Moving 20 office files (1.06 MB) MB takes an average USB drive 5 seconds and the GT less than 1 second. 60 pictures (279 MB) takes the GT 17 seconds as opposed to the average drive's 70 seconds and one movie (1.63GB) 82 seconds as opposed to 358 seconds.
Other features include all-rubber housing to withstand harsh conditions (i.e., being dropped in the toilet) and password protection using 256bit AES encryption. Available in 2GB ($29.99), 4GB ($59.99) and 8 GB ($119.99) capacities.
