Corsair Launch Extra-fast SLC-based USB Memory Keys - Flash Voyager GT - Corsair Launch Extra-fast SLC-based USB Memory Keys - Flash Voyager GT
Sat, January 13 2007 | 5:50PM | PermaLink Feedback?
Corsair is set to introduce a new family of flash memory drives which are substantially faster than its current flash voyager, and somewhat more expensive too. The Corsair Flash Voyager modules are based on Multi-Level Cell NAND flash memory (MLC), which is slower but very inexpensive. The new Corsair Flash Voyager GT module utilizes Single Level Cell NAND Flash (SLC) memory which is much quicker, but more expensive. SLC based flash memory has a definite speed advantage, and at the moment is capped off at 8GB densities. MLC flash modules have reached 16GB, and in some cases even 32GB (though not from Corsair).
If speed is something you require, particularly when transferring many small files between the computer and your flash key, keep an eye out for the SLC based Corsair Flash Voyager GT pictured here in red. It will be in stores by February.
Corsair demonstrated two other new USB products during CES 2007, the first is the ruggedized G-Force Flash drive which is housed in a sealed aluminum cylinder. The Corsair G-Force is water resistant to 300m (when sealed), comes in a variety of densities, and will be available in February. Pictured above at far left is the Corsair Flash Padlock, a standard USB flash drive which will not operate until the correct key-code is entered into its integrated 5 digit number panel.
When the correct PIN is entered, the drive will become visible to the host PC, and once removed will automatically lock. A standard watch battery stores the PIN information in the drive, and if you loose your password Corsair have set up a password recovery service on their website where it can be retrieved (so long as you register the device and your password when it is first set). The electronics inside the Corsair Flash Padlock are dipped in epoxy to prevent hardware hacking circumvention.
