You might ask why we need another flash drive. The answer varies among different types of users. Some people need it to bring along a portable Windows XP while others are buying them to get a moderate speed boost from Vista’s ReadyBoost. Personally, I’m looking for a fast 32GB drive so I can put my massive VMWare Fusion’s virtual partition with MCE 2005. I may have to wait another year or so for a thumbdrive at this size to hit retail with a reasonable price. Regardless of your requirement, one’s always looking for most affordable, the fastest and most durable.
Everything USB have found one that seems to have all these characteristics. The Corsair Flash Voyager GT 4GB drive costs below $50, pumps out 32.1MB/s read and 22.5MB/s write, and also withstands a full wash as well as a SUV attack. Just a reminder, if your flash drive is going this fast, I don’t think your USB controller has much bandwidth left for stuff like the Samsung USB monitor.
Incredibly fast and especially durable, what’s not to like? You’d be foolish not to spend the extra $10 for Corsair’s speed demon of a flash drive.
