Wondering what to ask Santa for Christmas? While most stockings will be filled with chocolate coins and small toys this year, see if The Bearded One will fly past Fremont, California and pick you up one of these babies: a four gigabyte (4GB) Flash Voyager USB pen drive.

Corsair's Flash Voyager range are some of the best pen drives you can buy. Ninja fast 19MB/sec Read and 13MB/sec Write speeds make backing up or transferring files a dream, and the rugged, rubberised housing keeps your data safe.

This was proven recently when a major UK distributor put Corsair's claims to the test. They froze it, boiled it in water, ran it through the washing machine, launched it at a wall by attaching it to a strimmer, submerged it in a goldfish tank and, our favourite, running it over in a BMW. 3 times.

All Corsair Flash Voyagers come with a 10-year warranty, and you can't ask for more than that really. Best of all, it is priced quite competitively. Corsair informed us that the US MSRP is US$259, and UK e-tailers Dabs and Scan will have stock in just a couple of days priced around £140 +vat. Compared to the only other 4GB pen drive that Scan stock, which sells for £223 +vat, the Corsair Voyager 4GB is a bargain.

The only question is whether you can wait until 25th December to get your hands on one. What would you do if you had 4GB in your pocket?
