Aye, I've got the 2GB version of the Voyager -- it's seriously fast as hell. Faster than the last hard drive I had in my computer. Average speed of 32MB/s, if I remember correctly.

Too bad they're so fat and bulky though...I'd prefer if they'd slim them down a little bit. Otherwise an awesome USB Key. :cool:

you could for a while but flash has a limited read/write potential and after a few months you would likely loose any of the speed the drive has to it
