Corsair Flash Voyager 4GB
 
Has anyone tried this and liked it? I know the Voyager GT has been reviewed, but I don't think I would pay about triple the price for the same amount of storage. I would mainly like to use it for playing movies on my DVP5982. My Kingston 1GB is capable, but I find it is not enough space for my needs.

At $30, I think it is a steal.

Any suggestions?

I have the 1g and 2g versions and find bang for buck they are nice unit.
I would buy another if needed.

I have purchased several Flash Voyagers (2 x 1 GB, 4 GB GT, 8 GB) and would recommend them to anyone. The GT version is definitely a lot faster and I got mine for $55 back in April from Directcanada, though the standard version is still faster than most other flash drives. I use my 4 GB GT every day at work and it holds up very well and has also been put through the wash a couple times by my GF.

The only downsides I can think of are:

1) It's not the prettiest flash drive
2) It's larger than average
3) It's easy to lose the cap (not that that's a big deal for me, I have never used my cap)

I have the 8Gb GT and it is super fast! I use it for everything!

I have used all the corsair lineup of drive over 4GB (Voyager 4GB~16GB , Voyager GT 4GB~8GB)
and like everyone else has commented; found them to be one of the best ones in the market.

Only thing I dislike is its size and the rubber housing that you can apparently pull off with not
too much effort.

One of these just died on me today. So I ordered the OCZ OCZUSBATV4G Atv Dual Channel for $25 to replace it. I think it is pretty much the same as the Voyager but a little cheaper right now :thumb:. Seems to get the same comments as the Voyager about the rubber housing being kinda big and the lid coming off easier than some like. But for $25 I like the speed and 4GB.
