Corsair 512MB Flash Voyager
With its water-resistant feature, the Corsair 512MB Flash Voyager certainly has an edge over competing USB flash memory drives. It survived all our three water resistance tests, even a 30-minutes rinse cycle!
The Flash Voyager is also a very fast drive, especially with large files. It managed to write them at over 9.2MB/s! With smaller files, it was not so fast but that's expected. It still did pretty well at 1MB/s.
For newer benchmark results comparing the 512MB Flash Voyager with its 4GB brother as well as new flash drives from OCZ, please take a look at the Corsair 4GB Flash Voyager review.
Corsair packed a pretty complete package with the 512MB Flash Voyager. Not only do you get a lanyard, you also get a USB extension cable, which can be pretty useful.
Unfortunately, its rubber shell is a double-edged sword. It is a veritable dust magnet and worse, it's not easy to clean off the dirt.
With that said, we still feel that the 512MB Corsair Flash Voyager deserves a Reviewer's Choice Award! Congratulations, Corsair!

* Our New Review System
ARP is committed to developing new ways to improve your experience with us. As part of our continuous efforts to improve the value of our reviews to you, we are implementing a new review system.
This new review system is designed to allow you to quickly receive information on the latest hardware. This new system also allows you to quickly get the gist of the review without reading through it. This can be very useful, especially in situations where you need to make a quick purchase decision.
In this new system, we start with a Product Overview whenever a company sends us a press release about their latest product. We shift through extraneous PR-talk to create a straightforward summary of the product's features as well as specifications. This allows you to quickly find out all the pertinent details about the product, without reading through official press releases.
When we receive the product for review, we will quickly take photos of it and create a Pictorial Review. The purpose of a pictorial review is to allow you, the reader, to quickly examine the product visually. It may help you make better purchase decisions, especially if you cannot wait for the full review.
After thorough testing, we will post a Comprehensive Review of the product. This adds on to the pictorial review with comprehensive test results and our final conclusion on the product.
But no matter whether you are reading a Pictorial Review or a Comprehensive Review, you can always read the summary of the review as well as examine the product's specifications right on the first page. In all our new reviews, we will maintain the first page as a Product Overview page. If the product is listed in PriceGrabber, you can also check out the lowest price online.
We hope this new review system will make your experience a lot more enjoyable and informative!
