    Corsair Launches The HS1 Gaming Headset

    Corsair, more commonly known for their memory products, has apparently decided to branch out into the gaming headset market. Their take on the product seems to come from the “more power” school of thought, with two large 50mm drivers delivering a “carefully tuned acoustical design” to your eardrums. Read More

    Corsair unleashes the Force SSD line

    Forget about the just-announced Corsair Reactor and Nova SSDs because you’re not going to want those after you hear about the upcoming Force models. This new line forgos the Indilinx Bareboot controller for the faster SandForce SD-1200 processor, which enables the Force line to read at 285MB/s and write at 275MB/s. Yeah, that’s quick. Trim support is also present on the SATA II… Read More

  • The 128GB Corsair Flash Voyager GTR is quicker than your average 128GB flash drive

    The 128GB Corsair Flash Voyager GTR is quicker than your average 128GB flash drive

    Corsair has always been known to make speedy flash drives and the new $426 128GB Flash Voyager GTR lives up to that perception. Corsair even claims it’s fast enough to run an OS. 34MB/s read and 28MB/s write speeds are thanks to a quad-channel architecture, which is apprarently a lot faster than competing drives. But I’m not satisified. It needs to be faster than that. Read More

  • The just-announced Corsair Reactor and Nova product lines are SSDs, not UFP starships

    The just-announced Corsair Reactor and Nova product lines are SSDs, not UFP starships

    Corsair isn’t a new player in the SSD game, but it has some new entries for your consideration. The Reactor and Nova series are both solid performers, but offer slightly different benefits for different users. While the speedy Nova series zips files along at 270MB/s (read) and 195MB/s (write) thanks to the Indilinx Bareboot controller, the Reactor models have slightly slower speeds… Read More

    Corsair's new high-speed thumb drive holds 128GB, is whale-like

    Lord! It’s big as a man! Corsair’s new Voyager GT looks like a red-and-black beluga whale. I reviewed the old Voyager GT and found it to be as fast as they claimed, but that thing was actually the size of a thumb, unlike this monster. Look at it! Read More

    Corsair releases 256GB Solid State Drive

    Whoa heavy and a bottle of bread! Corsair just released a 256GB SSD SATA II 3.0Gbps drive for $660 *head spins like wolf in cartoons that has just been clobbered by a mallet*. That’s right. This bugger is $658.22 at NCIX and is in stock. For something a little more sane you can rock their 128GB drive for $299 but who wants to go all chintzy when we’re talking a lump of storage so… Read More

    Corsair's new 256GB SSD could give Intel a run for its money

    Intel has been the go-to guy for SSDs these days. While others are trying to bring the cost down or kick up the performance so high it costs a couple thou, Intel has been the one filling storage space in high-performance servers due to the drives’ reliability and high speed. But lovable memory maker Corsair is pushing out some drives that may hit Intel below the belt. Read More

    Corsair's first PC case looks nice, black

    This is an age of experimentation, people. A golden age in which motherboard manufacturers can become household names in a year’s time and memory manufacturers can suddenly decide to make a PC case for no reason but that they feel like it. Corsair, RAM extraordinaire, has done just this. Their as-yet-unnamed full-tower case is being shown at CeBIT, and by golly, it actually looks… Read More

    Corsair shows some love for the Mac Pro with 800MHz 4GB DIMM RAM kit

    Earlier in the year Corsair launched the low-latency RAM geared specifically for the Penryn-based MacBook and MacBook Pro, which I currently have on my MBP, and now they’re kicking out some kits for the Mac Pro. The new Mac Memory kits buffer at 800MHz and work alongside the MP-specific heat sinks and whatever else to unleash the beast that is your Mac Pro. A 4GB DIMM kit retails for… Read More

    Review: High Speed USB thumbdrive cage match


    You may have seen our review of the Kingston DataTraveler HyperX high-speed thumbdrive. If so, you’ll remember how it proved itself far superior to the peasant drives I put it up against. Well, it’s far from the only high-speed USB key on the market, so we got our hands on a couple other leading offerings from Corsair (the Voyager GT) and SanDisk (the Cruzer Contour) and… Read More

    Corsair 1GB Flash Voyager USB drive gets modded like never before

    All this because the keychain broke. I suppose I’d try the same thing if I had the means. What won’t mechanical engineers do? Good on ya, Russell. [photopress:usb_armor11.jpg,thumb,pp_image][photopress:usb_armor10.jpg,thumb,pp_image] RJ3 Labs [via Enthusiast] Read More

    Corsair's nigh-invulnerable thumb drives hit 32GB


    Corsair, memory extraordinaire, has made me very happy. Their newest USB flash drives are available in sizes up to 32GB, and with the ruggedized, water-resistant Survivor series, you’ve got yourself a little data safe that is shock resistant, holds an entire bootable OS, and can be taken in the shower. They’ll run you about $250, though. Warning: these devices are NOT lava-proof. Read More

    Are you one of those types who wears your heart on your sleeve, or, here, keeps all your important data on your keys? Securing that data is probably important to you (at least it should be) and Corsair has a quick solution to that with its Flash Padlock.

  • Corsair's Premium Flash Voyager GT USB Drives Go Really Fast


    Corsair announced an update today to its Flash Voyager line of USB drives by adding a “GT” to the end of the name and changing the color from blue to red.

Put simply: Speed. As the sizes… Read More

  • Corsair's 16 Gigs Of Rubberized Water-Resistant Flash Drive Fun

    I don’t like to brag, but I’ve got a fairly large collection of USB flash drives. (I know you’re jealous.) Sometimes I like to dump the whole lot of them on my bed and roll around in them. Sadly though, none of them go above 2GB. So I have to get my hands on one of these new 16GB bad boys from Corsair. The Flash Voyager drive has all the features of its smaller-capacity… Read More

  • Corsair Introduces Dominator RAM With Cooling Fans

    is a more technical explanation on what CAS means. Only the most demanding users will grab this, partially thanks to the $600 price tag on the fanned model and the $400 for the non-fanned model. Pretty expensive, but if you want the top performance for your gaming rig, you’d better hope your mommy and daddy are willing to bump up your allowance. Corsair DRAM Adds Cooling Fan [Extreme… Read More
