Roundup – USB 3.0 Flash Drives from Corsair, Lexar and Patriot
The design of the latest Voyager GT USB 3.0 drive is similar to that which Corsair has been using for their Voyager drives for years; with the exception that the latest version is about 20% longer and slightly wider than what the Voyager USB 2.0 drives used to be, although not thicker.
The whole body of the Voyager GT USB 3.0 drive, including the cap, is made out of hard rubber, not inflexible plastic. The rubber body makes the Voyager GT drive almost invulnerable, with the drive rated capable of withstanding shocks up to 40G, or enough for it to survive a plane crash. Corsair claims that the 64GB version of the drive, which we are reviewing today, is capable of speeds up to 220MB/s read and 110MB/s write. It is interesting to note that the 32GB version of the drive shares the same read speed but is capable of only half the write speed that the 64GB version may achieve.
