Take a good look at the Corsair Flash Voyager GT. It may be a little fat around the USB connector, but it is, according to the company, the fastest USB drive in the world. Well, that’s according to the company, so we can take that with a grain of salt, but still, impressive nonetheless. With reading speeds of up to 32 MB/s and write speeds of up to 25.6 MB/s, that might be hard to top, at least for now. Sadly, we don’t have word on pricing or availability, but we do know it will pack in 128GB of storage space.

Verbatim’s newest product is designed for those of us who could use a bit more at-a-glance information from the USB hard drives strewn across our desks. The InSight portable hard drive has a display that is always on, which shows important information such as the drive name and available free space. It runs at 5400 rpm with an 8 MB cache. You should be able to purchase one for $120 for the 320GB model, and $150 for the 500GB version.

I realize that many shoot their own version of EdTV or The Truman Show with their webcams every day, what with this whole YouTube thing we keep hearing about. If that is you, then you may be interested in Microsoft’s LifeCam Cinema, which records in 720p HD at 30 frames per second. The LifeCam Cinema also touts autofocus, 4x digital zoom, noise-canceling microphone, and ClearFrame for “smoother video” (whatever that is.) It will support Windows 7, and will be available for $80 on September 9th.

Verizon Wireless announced its long-awaited ZTE AD3700 USB modem on Friday. This modem plugs right in to the USB port of your laptop, and gives you EVDO in the United States and HSPA around the world with 3G service. It launched over the weekend with a price of $79.99, after $50 rebate.
For those of you who want some added security to your flash drive should consider the Flash Drive Lock. Hopefully, an info-thief won’t be able to dial the 1,000 possible combinations before you catch him or her trying to steal from you.
This little extra piece of security will cost you about $9.80 and is available Read More | Red Ferret
For those of you who are afraid of accidentally smashing your thumb drive, then you might want to invest in the Tuff-Clip USB stick from Verbatim.

The other day I made a big deal over Sony’s ridiculous 2TB Memory Stick XC. Today, I am putting this tiny little microSD reader in the spotlight. Dubbed by many as a thumbnail drive, the entire apparatus is contained within the USB connector itself. How cool is that?
You can order it on GeekStuff4u for $150 for the 16GB model, or $35 for the 4GB.
I don’t know what it is about the Mimo 710-S, but I just have to like it. Maybe it’s because I could use a little portable flip-shut monitor for my laptop, even if it is 7-inches with 800x480 resolution. Maybe it is because it attaches to my laptop easily via USB. Actually, I think I like pretty much everything about the Mimo 710-S, except the price, which is $140.

I’m certain that many of you have the problem of too many USB devices and not enough USB ports. Fortunately, Logitech is helping to solve this problem with their Unifying Receiver. It is basically a wireless dongle that is designed to work with many new Logitech products including the K350/K340 wireless keyboard ($59.99/$49.99), as well as the Marathon Mouse M705/M505 ($69.99/$49.99). Granted, Bluetooth could do the same thing, but those devices are a bit more expensive. We like where Logitech’s mind is at, so kudos to their forward thinking.

The BeamBox MiLi (not to be confused with the Beambox projector,) is a universal charger that has two USB ports that can power up four devices, as well as a flip out car plug. Not only that, it comes with interchangeable US, UK, Australian, and European plug adapters and much, much more. Not bad for a $37 device, and it comes in nine colors.
