Corsair Flash Voyager 8GB
Last week we had examined the OCZ Mega-Kart 8GB flash drive, and now this week we have the privilege of covering Corsair's new CMFUSB2.0-8GB Flash Voyager. This USB flash drive offers a storage capacity of 8GB while promising 33MB/sec reads and 16MB/sec writes. Nevertheless, will this 8GB flash drive be able to continue in the legendary success we had previously seen by the Corsair Flash Voyager series?

We had first looked at the Corsair Flash Voyager series in January 2005 when we had our hands on the 512MB model, which was followed later by a review of the 4GB version. With the 8GB Flash Voyager the features and contents remain nearly the same except for the expanded storage capacity. The contents included a Corsair lanyard, USB extension cable, and driver CD. The driver CD contains the needed drivers for some operating systems and it includes a True Crypt security application. This Windows application allows for a virtual encrypted drive using AES-256 encryption. The 8GB Flash Voyager is backed by an impressive ten year warranty.
