Corsair's Flash Voyager thumb drive stores 64GB

— 2:54 PM on September 29, 2008

USB thumb drives have awfully high storage capacities these days. A 2GB USB keychain might have been dense enough to raise eyebrows a few years ago, but today, Corsair has added a 64GB model to its Flash Voyager USB line with minimal fanfare.

The new drive has roughly the same form factor and perks as lower-capacity Flash Voyager siblings. That means a keychain-style form factor and a tough, water-resistant rubber enclosure. Corsair even boasts in its official product page, "The Flash Voyager has been shown laundered, baked, frozen, boiled, dropped, and even run over by a SUV in many third party reviews. After all the punishment it receives, the drive continues to work."

It's a good thing the 64GB Flash Voyager is tough, because with a $250 suggested price, this isn't a device you'd want to break accidentally. Corsair's pricing might create an interesting dilemma for some folks, too: $250 gets you a pocket-size iPod classic with a 120GB hard drive and the ability to play back both music and videos. Corsair does mention the Flash Voyager can boot an operating system, but the drive may be too slow for that to be particularly useful.
