Corsair 2.0gb Voyager

Corsair has recently expanded their award winning memory line-up to include flash drives and they sent us their Flagship product to see how it would stack against the competition. They've proudly advertised a 10year warranty on these products which is twice that of their closest competitor, Kingston. Very nice!

The memory stick measures 74mm * 22mm * 12mm which makes it one of the smaller drives in this comparison. Truth be told though, all these drives were pretty similar in size and when parts get that small, all the products are going to be very portable.

The casing of the drive was made of rubber which in Corsair's words, makes them "easy to grip and water resistant". Out of all the drives in this roundup, I think this would be the one I'd be willing to throw against a wall and expect it to escape relatively unscathed.

The included accessories aren't spectacular, but they are good enough. I liked how the lanyard attached to the main body of the flash drive instead of the lid.


The software included with the drive allows one to make a hidden password protected partition on the drive to store your valuable data. This was pretty much standard in all the drives so not much to talk about there.

Of the other features, perhaps the most notable one was the ablility to make the drive bootable, but apart from that, not really much to say.

Let's take a look at the Kingston products...
