Default Quick and dirty - Corsair Flash Voyager 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive


Quick word about Corsair.
Quote:
Corsair is a global company bringing innovative, high-performance components to the PC gaming market. Specializing in very high performance memory, ultra-efficient power supplies, and other key system components, our products are the choice of overclockers, enthusiasts, and gamers everywhere.

Founded as Corsair Microsystems in 1994, Corsair originally developed Level 2 cache modules for OEMs. After Intel incorporated the L2 cache in the processor with the release of its Pentium Pro processor family, Corsair changed its focus to DRAM modules, primarily in the server market. In 2002, Corsair began shipping DRAM modules that were specifically designed to appeal to computer overclocking enthusiasts. From its roots in high-performance memory, Corsair has expanded its award-winning product portfolio to include ultra-efficient power supplies, builder-friendly cases, ground-breaking CPU coolers, blazing-fast solid-state drives, and other key system components.

Corsair has developed a global operations infrastructure with extensive marketing and distribution channel relationships. Corsairís products are sold to end users in over sixty countries worldwide, primarily through leading distributors and retailers.
Today I am doing a quick review of the Corsair Flash Voyager 16GB USB flash drive.
 




packaging;




Testbed system;
Acer Aspire 5742G-7200

Test used;
Flash Memory Toolkit
quick word about Flash Memory Toolkit;
Quote:
Flash Memory Toolkit combines a wide range of functions which allows you to get the most out of your flash memory card or USB stick.Measure the performance, scan for errors, securely delete all data, recover files and create a bit-for-bit identical backup with a quick and easy to use interface.

Test Results;



Conclusion;
The 16GB version of the Flash voyager currently retails roughly about $30 USD. Which is a bit more expensive than some of its competitors. However it offers near indestructible casing to protect all your valuable data.

Its great and does what I need.

Nice review, and nice speeds.
Your flash drive is 34% faster than mine

Edit: 34% faster in read speeds.
