The Corsair voyager 8GB comes well packed in a clam shell that is made from plastic. He plastic is rather hard so as to protect the flash drive. The flash has a rubberized feel and look that come in only in blue and black which are the only two colors available for this product. This corsair features retractable USB connector that allows safe storage for the drive when not in use. This helps in the reduction of any potential problems of static discharge when being transported. The mechanism of the USB is very durable since the connector cannot appear or be triggered with out the user's interaction. There is an increased risk in transportation of the flash since the pins do not have any protection covering them. This is unlike the previous model which had a retractable function for the pins for their protection.
