While you may be asking yourself why we bothered to look at a 256MB flash drive, we decided to examine the Corsair Flash Voyager 256MB as it appeals to a variety of different users from those wanting to run a mini Linux LiveUSB distribution or to using this storage device for other purposes where a large storage capacity drive really isn't needed. The Flash Voyager 256MB also sells for less than $10 USD, which could make this an ideal stocking stuffer for almost any computer user. With that said, we decided to take a quick look at the CMFUSB2.0-256 today on Phoronix.

Like the other Flash Voyager products we have reviewed at Phoronix, the Flash Voyager 256MB shipped in a small plastic package with a paper insert that had illustrated the features and benefits for Corsair's Flash Voyager series. Included in the package was the 256MB USB 2.0 flash drive, Corsair Flash Voyager miniCD containing drivers and instructions, and a Corsair Lanyard.
