Corsair, a worldwide leader in high performance computer products, today
announced the immediate availability of the Corsair Flash Readout USB drive in
new 4GB and 8GB capacities. The Corsair Flash Readout USB drive takes the
benefits of USB Flash drives one step further by allowing users to label the
drive with personal IDs and showing the remaining storage capacity via the
embedded digital display, hence alleviating the need to plug the USB drive into
the PC to verify content.

The concept behind the Flash Readout drive is a simple one. With the growing
number of consumers owning more than one USB drive, we wanted to introduce a
product that will allow the users to visually see what is on the drive without
having to plug it into the PC. The Flash Readout delivers exactly that you can
see available storage capacity and personalize it with names to keep content
organized, said Richard Hashim, Director of Product Marketing at Corsair. With
HD content becoming more mainstream, consumers are demanding larger capacity
flash drives to allow them to bring content on the go. Each 8GB Flash Readout
USB drive has the equivalent storage capacity to hold the entire series of the
Lord of the Rings movie!

Flash Readout USB drives feature a Bi-stable Cholesteric Display (BCD) showing
data usage and availability. These drives have a customizable label that users
can personalize and edit to identify the drives contents. Flash Readout USB
drives have been designed for users who demand aesthetics and advanced
functionality in a small portable device. They feature an 11 character
alphanumeric label display, a pie chart to indicate disk space usage and a four
digit display showing available storage space. The BCD display retains and
displays information for up to one year without the use of a battery.
