Corsair 8GB Flash Voyager

Flash-based music players such as the Sansa e280 and new iPod nano have set their storage threshhold at 8GB, but until recently most USB flash drives have had far less capacity. Memory vendor Corsair is reversing this trend with its 8GB Flash Voyager drive, which the company promises is both much faster and more secure than earlier versions. The new flash stick uses a dual-channel interface that almost doubles the practical transfer rate: while the previous 4GB model could read and write at 19MB and 9MB per second respectively, the 8GB version manages 31MB and 16MB per second speeds. Writing the entire block of data should take approximately 8.5 minutes. That data can also be encrypted using a 256-bit AES algorithm using special software. Corsair expects to ship the 8GB Flash Voyager soon for $155.
