For years now Corsair has been on the forefront of leading flash drive innovations, which started with their Flash Voyager series but quickly expanded into their Flash Voyager GT, Flash Survivor GT, and Flash PadLock series. We've reviewed them all and Corsair has certainly had some talented engineers working on these products from the Flash Survivor GT that withstood being submerged into the bottom of a pool, being boiled in a pot of water, and beaten by a hammer to the Flash PadLock, which has a physical lock that will present the flash drive from being mounted unless the appropriate key sequence is entered. While they continue to face new competition -- primarily from OCZ Technology, which has many different innovative flash drives as well such as the Rally 2 Turbo, ATV Turbo, and Mega-Kart -- Corsair Memory continues to excel and release new flash products. Corsair's latest additions to their Flash Voyager GT family are 16GB and 32GB editions. At hand today we are looking at the Corsair Flash Voyager 16GB USB 2.0 flash drive.

Features:

- Durable
- Shockproof
- Water Resistant
- Plug & Play
- Limited 10 Year Warranty

The 16GB Flash Voyager GT (CMFUSB2.0-16GBGT) had arrived in similar blister packaging to the Flash Voyager and Flash Voyager GT drives that we have reviewed in the past. Included with the Flash Voyager GT were a USB extension cable and a lanyard. Included on the flash drive itself is Corsair's TrueCrypt security application, but that's only supported on Windows operating systems. While we're just looking at the Flash Voyager GT 16GB version, Corsair does also produce a 16GB version of their normal Flash Voyager drive. The key difference between the Flash Voyager and Flash Voyager GT series is that the latter is performance-oriented while the former is designed to just deliver the best value for performance solution. Both, however, are made up of the same rubber shell to offer water resistance, enhanced durability, and more.
