Corsair says that "big things do come in small packages," and while we know nothing about undersized packages, we can see why Corsair is prone to brag. After all, they've just crammed 32GB of capacity into a flash drive hardly bigger than a quarter.

The 32GB Flash Voyager Mini USB flash drive is Corsair's largest capacity yet in that particularly lineup, with other models checking in at 4GB, 8GB, and 16GB. Like the others, the 32GB variant boasts a cap-less retractable USB connector that you flick open with your thumb, just the way the cool kids do it. And with 32GB, Corsair says you can store up to 9,000 6-megapixel pictures, or over 140 hours of MEPG-4 video.



The new drive is available now for about $100 street.

See there, Kinda makes that USB 3.0 drive kinda questionable. Since all flash drives are SSD. At a fraction of the cost to boot.

Now they just need to make something like this with a HDMI connector so it can be a plug and play media drive :O

Plus I love MY Corsair's!!

Just have to really keep track of it, and make sure the dog doesn't eat it :P

Doesn't really say much about what USB it supports and the pricing of the product. It's probably over 100 bucks.

I agree Kyouya, but it would make sense. I think USB 3 is actually going to have a large impact on the market. A top end provider of equipment like Corsair at this time would be likely to offer this with USB3 availability. Either way this is a nice device, and shows basically that Mobility is becoming more and more of a priority!

I bought my first jump drive the Corsair 2GB Voyager 3 years ago because of their stellar reputation in the memory market. Needless to say I still am using that 2GB jump drive today and its holding up great. I am glad to see them making smaller drives and bigger capacity. Lots of people complained about losing the cap but I have never lost mine, you just have to make conscious effort to watch where you place things.

That is what the Western Digital TV media player is for. Though I think there are some TVs that have something like that already built in with a USB port to connect to.

 

If you think you can’t do something, you’ll never be able to do it. No matter how easy it is.

Corsair's website has them listed as USB 2.0. I'm sure, however, that 3.0 can't be far off.
