USB flash drives have finally taken over. They are, without a doubt, the single most efficient way of temporarily storing and transferring data. Floppy disks are gone, CD-Rs aren’t very pocket friendly and there’s absolutely no competition. In the past we’ve reviewed several high performers. Today we’ll be taking a look at Corsair’s Flash Voyager GT, heralded as the “fastest USB drive in the world”.
..When dealing with larger single files, Corsair’s GT is about as fast as 7200RPM HDD. Not too shabby. Copying lots of smaller files still takes longer though.
There’s not much you can say about a USB drive – they all serve the same purpose and are functionally identical. However, not all are created equal. Corsair got it right with the Voyager GT. It’s fast, durable, has unheard of storage capacity, and is relatively inexpensive.
