Both Voyager and Voyager GT come in soft durable rubber housing, the removable rubber cap protects the USB connector as well as make the device water-proof.
The activity LED has marking of the drive’s capacity and it flickers when you use it.
The Voyager GT claims almost double the performance of the none-GT USB drive; when we take closer look at the GT we noticed that it is slightly thicker than the Voyager, most likely we’re dealing with a dual-channel USB stick which helps boost performance. With the naked eye it’s hard to spot the size difference though.
A size comparison next to a set of keys, the Voyager USB drives are slightly longer than the largest key. This might cause issues if you wear your keys in your front pocket a lot.Wear
The housing of the Voyager USB drives is meant to last, we couldn’t find any visual defects after a week of usage; the soft rubber housing does a good job of keeping shape.
We did ran into one issue with the Voyager GT, when hooked up the keyring and left inside the front pocket and continuing your daily work, it may happen that you’ll bend the USB connector slightly out of shape, but enough for it to cause issues. We were unable to break the Voyager units in any other way as the housing can sustain quite a bit of abuse; only bending laterally caused issues. We consulted with Corsair who will look into this. If you want a more rugged drive for use on a keyring the Corsair Survivor
will be able to get the job done.
Onto the performance tests ->
