Packaging & Closer Look

Voyager GTX is packaged within a small packet

Voyager GTX arrives in a small packet which has been designed to capture attention. Corsair has used their performance red throughout the packaging and the actual design of the drive. The front allows a sneak preview of the drive and there are some brief technical specifications round the back with a performance chart. Unfortunately this packet does not open without having to attack it with a knife or sharp implement.

Sleek and durable metal enclosure

USB 3.0 ready

Unveiling the actual drive itself, Voyager GTX uses a metal enclosure which not only adds a degree of professionalism but ensure utmost durability. Measuring in at 7 x 2.8 x 0.7 cm, Voyager GTX is considerably wider than conventional USB 3.0 pen drives so if your USB ports are horizontally aligned there could be an obstruction.

Our drive uses the USB 3.0 interface but actually utilises an SSD controller in order to deliver ultra-fast performance even when operating in sequential transfer tasks.

This is what Corsair has to say about Voyager GTX and its internal design:

The Flash Voyager GTX delivers SSD-like performance in a thin USB 3.0 thumb drive. Employing a fully-fledged SSD controller, it produces blistering fast random and sequential transfer speeds and low latency without suffering from the issues with heat or performance consistency found in other high-performance flash drives. It is simply the fastest USB flash drive Corsair has ever produced.
