Flash Voyager GT Turbo: the world’s fastest native USB flash drive.The new Flash Voyager GT Turbo is, simply put, the fastest native USB 3.0 flash drive on the planet. Until now, the only way to get transfer performance this fast with a USB flash drive has been with costly USB-SSD hybrids. Flash Voyager GT Turbo brings this level of performance to an economical native USB 3.0 flash drive.
A gigabyte in four seconds.USB drives were conceived in a world where shuttling office documents back and forth was all you needed. But that’s not good enough anymore. Today, you need to move large images, huge videos, and enormous music collections. You need the capacity to hold them, and more importantly, you shouldn’t have to wait.
The 128GB Flash Voyager GT Turbo clocks in at up to 260 MB / second reads, and writes at up to 235 MB per second. That’s almost twice the speed of other high-performance USB keys. The future of portable storage performance is finally here.
It looks fast, too.This groundbreaking technology is contained in a brushed metal housing that feels great in the hand. The USB connector retracts securely into the drive with the flick of a slide switch, so there’s no cap to lose.
Universal CompatibilityIt works with USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports on Windows, OS X and Linux systems, with no driver installation necessary.
One-Piece DesignThe USB connector slides into the housing for transport, so you don’t need to worry about keeping track of a cap.
