Today, Corsair announced the launch of ten new USB 3.0 flash drives over the range of three different product lines. All of the new flash drives are USB 3.0 compatible and are capable of reaching speeds up to 285 MB/s during read cycles and up to 180MB/s during write cycles. Additionally, all of the drives are fully backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and are compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux with no driver installation necessary.




Up first is the new Flash Voyager GS series, which is intended to brand the company's flagship USB 3.0 flash drives. Each Voyager GS is housed in a scratch-resistant brushed metal enclosure and can be attached to a key ring. The Voyager GS Series is available in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB capacities.


Up next is the all new Flash Voyager Mini USB 3.0 series, which is designed to have a minimal size of just 1.25 inches long in an effort to help reduce the space they occupy in your pocket. Each Voyager Mini USB 3.0 comes equipped with a detachable key ring loop and features a brushed metal housing that is designed to resist wear and tear while protecting your data. The Flash Voyager Mini USB 3.0 is available in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB capacities.


Finally, Corsair announced the all new Flash Voyager LS series, which features a premium retracting design that is said to protect the USB connectors while eliminating the need for a protective cover. Corsair says that the new Voyager LS Flash Drives are small enough to attach to a keyring and feature an attractive brushed metal design that resists scratching and fingerprints while keeping your data safe. The Flash Voyager LS is available in 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB capacities. All 10 of the drives listed feature Corsair's unmatched five-year warranty and can be found at major electronics retailers everywhere.
