Mobile storage needs are increasing in capacity all the time and the transfer speeds have to match when we’re copying those amounts of data. Corsair has updated their lineup with four new USB 3.0 flash drives that should make sure we got both the speed and capacity.
The Voyager Slider X1 and Slider X2 have a sleek glossy design and a capless sliding mechanism to expose the connector. The Slider X1 is available from 16GB up to 256GB capacities and boasts read speeds up to 130MB/s. The Slider X2 comes in the same sizes but take the speeds up to 200MB/s.
The rugged Voyager GS and GTX flash drives kick the whole thing up another notch. The Voyager GS will be available as 64GB to 512GB models with read speeds up to 260MB/s and write speeds up to 105MB/s. If that still isn’t enough speed for you, Corsair has the Voyager GTX that actually is a USB 3 SSD in flash drive form factor. With capacities of either 128GB or 256GB, the Voyager GTX can achieve speeds up to 450MB/s with its onboard SSD controller.

- Voyager Slider X1: 16GB (14.99), 32GB ($19.99), 64GB ($39.99), 128GB ($64.99), 256GB ($149.99)
