Corsair releases new high-speed USB flash drives

After announcing the all-new Neutron XT line of solid-state drives Corsair has released two new USB 3.0 flash drive families – the Flash Voyager Slider X1 and Flash Voyager Slider X2. In addition to these two the famous US company has demonstrated new looks for the ultra performance Flash Voyager GS and Flash Voyager GTX drive families and has added a 512 GB model to the first one.

The Flash Voyager Slider X1 and X2 families bring a number of features to the table, including a cap-less USB drive design, a glossy finish and various capacities as well as read speeds. Both families offer USB 3.0 support but differ in the capacities offered – the Slider X1 family arrives with 16 GB, 32 GB, 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB capacities while the Slider X2 is available in 16 GB, 32 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB capacities.

The drives from both families are very compact at just 54 mm in length and can be attached to keychains or carried in other ways. The drives are also compatible with Windows, Mac OS and Linux and offer USB 2.0 support too. You can be sure in your Slider X1 or X2 drive – it comes with a 5-year warranty.
