The Flash Voyager provides fast access to 512MB of portable storage. Not only is it fast, it also comes equipped with a rubber shell to protect all your valuable data.

Out of curiosity, does this drive have a very slow speed (and i mean a VERY slow speed) when dealing with a large number of small files, for example 100 word documents.

My cheap sandisk drive and verbatim 512MB drive both had this issue but my CF and SD cards dont have this issue.

the most important test (I think) in using a flash drive is whether it draws too much power to be used in an un-powered hub (like a keyboard).  I've found few drives that'll work well without having to get behind the computer to plug the thing in.

yea but people should know NOT to use unpowered hubs. The USB specification specifically states up to 500mA per port, therefore a device is allowed to take up to 500mA.

Not that I know of. I'll try a larger amount and report back.
