Corsair Inc. today announced its largest capacity USB flash drives in two models, each sporting 32GB of capacity. Corsair plans to demonstrate the flash drives at the Consumer Electronics Show next week.
Corsair is marketing the portable drives by noting that 32GB of capacity allows them to hold 16 full-length, high-definition movies or an entire season of a TV series.
The Corsair 32GB USB 2.0 drives are also bootable, meaning they can store full versions of operating systems and applications to quickly “re-create” the necessary software environments to troubleshoot system problems. They drives have 24.5Mbit/sec. read speeds and are compatible with Windows Vista, XP, 2000, ME, Linux 2.4 and later, Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X.
