Posted on Monday, Apr 30 2007 @ 17:13 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Corsair presents its new Flash Survivor series, which it claims are the industry's toughest USB drives.

These memory sticks aren't only water-resistant and shock-proof, they also deliver blazing fast performance. The Flash Survivor GT drive has a sustained read performance of 34MB/s and writes your data at 28MB/s.

  • Water Resistant to 200 Meters / 20 Atmospheres
    Sealed with an EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) waterproof seal, the Flash Survivor is designed to provide 200 meters of water resistant durability. During these tests, no leaking or compromised integrity of the data on the drive was found.

  • Shock Proof – Triple Point Protection
    The Flash Survivor features triple-point protection against shock and impact:
  • Encased in CNC (Computer Numerical Control) milled aluminum as found in aircraft part production, ensures consistency in material quality, thereby guaranteeing the USB drive’s toughness. CNC-milled aluminum is the most durable material ever used on a USB drive.
  • Additional protection from shock and vibration is achieved through the use of rubber molded collar shielding. When dropped, the durable rubber absorbs the impact force to prevent damage to the inner drive and the USB connector.
  • Engineered outer metal tube with two end caps provides enforcement to the hollow tube and prevents it from collapsing when abused.
  • The Flash Survivor family of USB drives is also pre-loaded with a security application that allows users to create a hidden, password-protected partitions on the drive. The password is encrypted with 256bit AES encryption, the most secure encryption algorithms available.

    The Flash Survivors are available right now - the Flash Survivor GT 8GB costs $129.99 while the 4GB version costs $59.99.
