Corsair 128GB Flash Voyager thumb drive is big but not clumsy
Corsair is out with its new offering - the 128GB Flash Voyager GT thumb-drive, supposed to be the fastest in the world. Only, our computers will not be able to handle one yet, as the company claims that the 32MB/s read and 25.6MB/s write speeds are held in check by the rather unsympathetic "USB2.0 bus and the operating system overheads".
Nevertheless, this future-ready thumb drive is rubber-clad for durability, water-resistant and clocks speeds that are nearly twice that of rival high-performance drives. Even so, it comes with a 10-year warranty. By the end of which you will probably find out for yourself if the proposed limitations on its performance did really exist. Though the Corsair drive is available now, you will have some scouring to do, as few retailers are offering it, and with a hefty price tag of $390 whereabouts.
