Corsair extoll the virtues of USB media

Gareth Ogden – Corsair Technical Marketing Manager, Europe.

Most of us have a USB flash drive laying around the house – they have become an almost dispensible commodity in our everyday lives. Chances are you perhaps have one in a drawer or it is being used to store a myriad of useless backup documents you no longer need. What many of us don’t know however is that there is a huge versatility on offer if you have one of these currently propping up a book on your shelf.

I was chatting with Gareth Ogden, the technical savvy Marketing Manager for Corsair Europe and he was really keen to extoll the virtues of USB drives for a plethora of potential uses. Gareth isn’t just the usual business ‘suit’ he has a lot of expertise in the industry, he was founder of UK based Custom PC and was a technical editor of PC Pro before joining Corsair.

Gareth said : “Many people just think of USB flash drives as big floppy disks that are only useful for storing and transporting everyday files, plus your favourite music and videos. But with the latest high-speed, high-capacity models, such as the new Corsair Flash Voyager GT drives, in capacities from 16 to 128GB, you can do much more. This even includes booting and running an entire operating system directly from the USB drive, making them much more than simple backup devices. A ‘Live Bootable’ USB drive is perfect way to troubleshoot or recover data from a problem PC, and it’s also a really convenient way to work on the move, since it allows you to use your own desktop environment, complete with all your preferred applications, documents and data files, with any PC that can boot from USB.”
