So you’ve made it into the boss’ office and you are transferring the files onto your cheap knockoff flash drive and had you been mere seconds faster you wouldn’t be sitting in a jail cell, well you should have bought a flash drive from Corsair. Their new Flash Voyager GT offers up transfer speeds four times faster than that of a regular USB 2.0 drive.

They do it by hand selecting the NAND flash chips to get the fastest ones and by implementing some new advanced flash controller technology. Some examples are office files, pictures, and movies, the transfer times for those 3 different sets of files are 5 seconds, 70 seconds, and 358 seconds, respectively, for a standard USB 2.0 flash drive the Flash Voyager GT has the following times: less than 2 seconds, 24 seconds, and 98 seconds respectively for the same files.

The Flash Voyager is also quite durable, water resistant and shock resistant, and you get the TrueCrypt encryption software that offers up 256-bit AES encryption, and you get a 10 year warranty. The new 16GB Flash Voyager GT will cost you $170, but its well worth it if you need that much storage and don’t like waiting around for file transfers.
