USB keychain drive reaches 16GB mark

— 10:21 AM on December 13, 2006

The little USB sticks that have finally replaced the floppy drive for most users are reaching another milestone of late, as witnessed by Corsair's introduction of a 16GB USB drive in its Voyager keychain-sized housing. The new drive comes with a ten-year warranty and support for 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard encryption. Corsair says the drive offers sustained read speeds of 22MB/s and write speeds of 7MB/s, and that it supports 8-bit ECC in order to avoid data corruption. The drive is already shipping, but users will have to cough up the tidy sum of $299 for the privilege of being able to carry 16GB of storage with their keys.

Tip: You can use the A/Z keys to walk threads.
