Having read the last page, you're probably expecting the conclusion to be quite so-so, since the performance was not particularly mind-blowing. However, something you really need to bear in mind when buying a USB drive is the enclosure itself. The OCZ Throttle for example, delivers similar performance through USB, even more when connected with eSata, yet costs around the same price. So, why buy the Corsair? Well, if you were to drop the drive in a puddle for instance, or tread on if by accident, I know which drive I would have my money on to keep your data intact. The thick rubber casing of the Voyager is one of the best I have used; and while not bomb proof, you really do get the feeling that breaking it would be a fairly difficult affair.
Priced at £63.61 from Novatech,
its around the same price as other branded 32gb drives. The Voyager may not be truly outstanding at anything, but neither does it have any major weaknesses. The 10 year warranty is massively reassuring; we'll probably be carrying around 10tb USB finger nails by the time the warranty runs out. Some people may want something with more bells and whistles, but if you are looking for a solid performer that won't let you down, then look no further than the Flash Voyager.
