Corsair Expands Flash Voyager Product Family with 8GB
Corsair® today announced immediate availability of a new 8GB Flash Voyager
USB drive. Encased in the Corsair proprietary all-rubber Flash Voyager housing
and boasting water-resistant/ temperature tolerant properties, the new 8GB drive
allows users to carry more valuable data and applications without compromise.
Equipped with a security application and featuring enhanced dual channel
technology, the 8GB Flash Voyager delivers an ideal combination of
functionality, capacity and performance.
Favored by those who are on the go, the Flash Voyager drives bring additional
features to make the perfect mobile USB Flash drive companion. First in the
industry to feature an all-rubber housing, the Flash Voyager USB drive performs
reliably even under the most extreme conditions. Whether it is exposed to severe
temperature, moisture or physical abuse, the Flash Voyager performs consistently
to hold the valuable data. To promote data security, each Flash Voyager is
readied with a security application that allows users to create a hidden,
password-protected partition on the USB drive. The password is encrypted
with 256bit AES encryption, the most secure encryption algorithms available.
The Flash Voyager 8GB is engineered with enhanced dual channel technology –
today’s most advanced flash technology, providing the greatest performance and
product longevity. The new 8GB USB drive delivers blazing fast read and
write performance up to 33MB/sec and 16MB/sec respectively.
Just how much storage is 8GB? We recently downloaded Pirates of the
Caribbean* from the Apple iTunes Movie Store and found that the entire film
(taking over an hour to download) is a 1.64GB file. That means you can
store 4 similar movies on one 8GB Flash Voyager! Imagine having the entire
Lord of the Rings Trilogy in your pocket. What’s more, while it took over
an hour to download this video, with the super fast 8GB Flash Voyager USB you
can move it from a PC hard drive to your 8GB Flash Voyager in just 10 seconds!
“The 8GB Flash Voyager product is a natural extension to our award winning
Flash Voyager product line”, explained Richard Hashim, Director of Product
Marketing. “With the proliferation of media formats and movie download
services, our users expect Corsair to provide them with the best performing and
largest capacity Flash Drives available. The 8GB Flash Voyager can hold up
to four full length feature films, and you can move a movie on or off the 8GB
Flash Voyager in about 10 seconds!”
Backed with Corsair’s legendary 10-year warranty and on-demand customer
support, the new 8GB Flash Voyager (CMFUSB2.0-8GB) is currently available
through Corsair’s authorized distributors, resellers, retailers and e-tailers
worldwide. The 8GB Flash Voyager is available at an estimated street price of
