Icon17 Corsair Announces Immediate Availability of the New 16GB Flash Voyager USB Drives

Fremont, CA (December 12, 2006) – Users will no longer have to worry about having enough space on their personal flash drives to store all their files, music, photos, videos and applications. Today Corsair®, a worldwide leader in high performance computer products, expanded its lineup of the award-winning Flash VoyagerTM USB2.0 drives to include new 16GB capacities. Enclosed in the Corsair proprietary all-rubber Flash Voyager housing and boasting water-resistant properties, the new 16GB drive allows users to carry more valuable data and applications without compromise. Equipped with a security application and featuring the latest controller technology, the 16GB Flash Voyager delivers an outstanding combination of functionality and ultra-high capacity.

Designed for users who demand the highest capacity drive currently available on the market, the new 16GB Flash Voyager can store up to 8 full-length, high definition movies with ease. 16GB of storage capacity is equivalent of close to 4 DVDs or over 20 CDs – all in a small foot print USB design! The drive is also bootable, which means users can store a full version of Microsoft® WindowsTM operating system and configure the PC to boot from USB. Combined with the large capacity of the drive, it allows IT managers and technology users to troubleshoot from station to station with all the applications and files necessary to perform desktop support.

“As high definition content becomes more prevalent and that consumers demand portability of their favorite videos, pictures and applications, the need for an ultra high capacity drive increases. With a 16GB drive, you can put the entire series of three Lord of the Rings movies, an operating system, chat programs, photo editing software and still have storage space available for more,” said Richard Hashim, Director of Product Marketing at Corsair. “Consumers have learned to rely on Corsair Flash Voyage to safe guard their important content. The new Flash Voyager drive will protect the data even when the drive is exposed to the most extreme conditions.”

Built to Corsair’s legendary quality and reliability standards, the new 16GB USB drive delivers sustained read and write performance at 22MB/sec and 7MB/sec respectively. Taking full advantage of the new flash controller technology, the 16GB Flash Voyager features 8 bit Error Correcting Codes (ECC) – the highest code scheme for flash based controller currently available. ECC provides sophisticated capabilities to enhance product reliability, which allows the drive to continue to operate even after repeated use over time.

Favored by those who are on the go, the Flash Voyager drives bring additional features to make the perfect mobile companion. First in the industry to feature all-rubber housing, the USB Flash drive performs reliably even under the most extreme conditions. Whether it is exposed to severe temperature, moisture or physical abuse, the Flash Voyager performs consistently to hold the valuable data. To promote data security, each Flash Voyager is readied with a security application that allows users to create a hidden, password-protected partition on the USB drive. The password is encrypted with 256bit AES encryption, the most secure encryption algorithms available.

Backed with Corsair’s 10-year warranty and on-demand customer support, the new 16GB Flash Voyager is currently available through Corsair’s authorized distributors, resellers, retailers and e-tailers worldwide. The introduction MSRP of the 16GB Flash Voyager is $299 USD. Each drive is bundled with lanyard, security software/driver mini CD, and USB extension cable.
