Corsair 4GB and 8GB Voyager Mini USB Flash Drive Review

Postby Apoptosis » Wed Sep 17, 2008 10:30 am

The Corsair Flash Voyager Mini is a small USB drive that utilizes a cap-less retractable connector plug which easily opens with the flick of the thumb, and its ergonomic rubberized housing makes it easy to connect and disconnect from any computer. Read on as we benchmark the 4GB and 8GB version to see how they do against eight other USB 2.0 Flash drives!

Corsair has done a great job on the Flash Voyager Mini and for such a small device the performance was actually better than I expected. The Corsair Flash Voyager Mini was not designed to be a speed demon, but the benchmarks showed that it wasn't all that slow. The write performance on the drives could use some work as writing 8GB of data at just over 2MB/sec does take a fair amount of time. Once you get the data writen to the drive the read throughput on both the 4GB and 8GB Voyager Mini drives were great!

Very cool, I really like the Corsair drive I have now but I think the next flash drive I pick up will be one of these bad boys:
