For what is normally such a functional item, Corsair has been very successful in talking up the prospects of its Flash Voyager range of USB memory keys. Its pedigree in high performance memory has certainly helped, while the ultra-durable casings make for a handy marketing angle. Voyager memory keys have reportedly survived microwaving, boiling, baking, freezing and various other assaults and the data stored on them has survived.


Recently Corsair was kind enough to drop by and hand us the 8GB version of its Flash Voyager GT, the performance edition of the range. The look of the device hasn’t changed a great deal since the original Flash Voyager, though the GT sports a black and red rubber casing as opposed to blue and black.

That the rubber casing is sturdy is not in doubt, but the durability and quality of memory means this isn’t the smallest or most convenient memory key one can find. This can hardly be considered a real detractor however; it’s only big by increasingly demanding standards and the extra durability is certainly worth the sacrifice.


In the package Corsair provide a lanyard, for carrying the device around your neck, and a short USB extension cable. It’s all fairly standard stuff, but it’s good to see it included nonetheless and both items are of a superior quality. The device also comes with TrueCrypt security software loaded onto the device, utilising AES-256 encryption for keeping private data private.

Perhaps the most important thing though is the warranty. Every Flash Voyager GT comes with a massive 10 year warranty, so if performance of your flash drive begins to falter you’ll have somewhere to go. It’s certainly an important consideration, and reflects Corsair’s trust in its hardware that it can provide such a service.
