Corsair Voyager GT 16GB

Corsair this morning released a small but important update to its Flash Voyager rugged flash drive line. A new, GT version of the Voyager offers 16GB of storage without the usual speed sacrifice associated with the extra capacity; through an advanced memory controller and hand-picked flash chips, Corsair claims an approximate four-fold speed boost over similar drives. The gain is enough to transfer just over 1MB in less than two seconds (versus five on other designs) and to transfer a full 1.6GB movie in 98 seconds compared to nearly six full minutes on older designs.

The rubber shell continues to be shock- and water-resistant on the drive, which comes with TrueCrypt software to lock down more sensitive files with 256-bit AES encryption. Corsair says the 16GB drive should be available now and sells the new trim level to Linux, Mac, and Windows users for $170.
