Corsair Flash Voyager 4GB

Conclusion:

Corsair states their official transfer speeds for their Flash Voyager series is 19MB/s read and 13MB/s write, except for the 128MB variant that runs at 9MB/s and 6MB/s, and in our tests the CMFUSB2.0-4GB performed as advertised. Unfortunately, these speeds were not fast enough to topple the OCZ Rally that is designed for 23MB/s read and 17MB/s write operation. Ignoring the Rally flash device, the Corsair Flash Voyager was significantly faster than the Transcend JetFlash 110. Alternatively, the Corsair Flash Voyager is composed of its incredibly durable waterproof and shockproof rubber housing. Unfortunately, as we had learned after the Flash Voyager 512MB review with several months of usage the characters have begun to rub-off the rubber shell. Although this was not the absolute fastest flash drive, it continues to be a blazing fast device and with its exceptional build-quality, we cannot help but to continue to endorse the Flash Voyager series.
