USB keychain drive reaches 16GB mark
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.
