Corsair's Flash Voyager sizes up
today announced the latest addition to its Flash Voyager line of USB drives
. The latest
Flash Voyager drive
arrives in a new 16GB size while retaining the portable form factor of smaller drives. An all-rubber housing surrounds the Flash Voyager 16GB USB drive and allows it to be somewhat water-resistant. Corsair equips the Flash Voyager with a USB 2.0 interface for speedy transfers up to 22MB/s reads and 7MB/s writes.
With the massive 16GB storage space the Flash Voyager can store plenty of high definition video and other multimedia content. Corsair’s Director of Product Marketing, Richard Hashim claims “As high definition content becomes more prevalent and that consumers demand portability of their favorite videos, pictures and applications, the need for an ultra high capacity drive increases. With a 16GB drive, you can put the entire series of three Lord of the Rings movies, an operating system, chat programs, photo editing software and still have storage space available for more,”
Other notable features of the Flash Voyager include 8 bit ECC technology to prolong product reliability and a bundled software encryption application. The bundled encryption application takes advantage of 256bit AES encryption technology.
Expect immediate availability of the Corsair Flash Voyager 16GB flash drive. MSRP pricing of the Flash Voyager 16GB has been set at $299 USD.

Less then 4 times the cost of a 4gig, and less then twice the cost of an 8. 16gigs for $299 is pretty cheap for flash, and thats msrp, street is likely to be even less in a few weeks.

4GB seems to be the sweet-spot for flash drives at the moment.
You can get cheaper (ie: non-corsair) 4GB drives for around $50:
