Over the past few months, we have looked at nearly a dozen USB 2.0 flash drives that have all claimed to be high-speed but over this time there have been just two devices that have fully satisfied us when it comes to their read/write transfer speeds and longevity. These two products are none other than Corsair's Flash Voyager and OCZ Technology's Rally. Although the Rally has stunned the Flash Voyager, and its competition, in all of our testing, the Flash Voyager has the benefit of being waterproof and offering a superb build quality that has been a common occurrence with present-day flash media devices. Under our microscope today is yet another flash drive for our vicious testing and that is ATP's ToughDrive 1GB unit that promises high-data transfer rates while being tough and highly durable. Will the ATP AF1GUFT1BK unit be the best of both worlds when it comes to quality and speed with competition against OCZ's and Corsair's finest? In this review we will be closely examining this scenario.

Features:

· Tough & Highly Durable: Tough Rubber Housing for shock absorption and water resistance
· High data transfer rate: 30 MB/s Read, 20MB/s Write! Speed up file transfers and multimedia streaming
· Reliable: With the best components in the industry, they last up to 10 times longer than other USB flash drives
· Extremely Portable: Compact design for convenient storage and mobility
· Compatibility: No driver needed for Windows 2000 / ME / XP, Mac. OS 8.6 , Linux Kernel 2.4.0 or above

Receiving our ATP ToughDrive sample, it simply shipped with no retail packaging or container. Included inside of the FedEx shipping crate was strictly the 1GB flash unit and a respective lanyard. In addition to the 1GB model (AF1GUFT1BK) ATP also currently offers a 256MB (AF256UFT1BK), 512MB (AF512UFT1BK), and 2GB (AF2GUFT1BK) variant. Not making their way into the ATP package is any sort of user's manual or documentation along with CDs. Supported by the flash device is Microsoft Windows 2000/ME/XP along with Mac OS v8.6 or higher, and the Linux 2.4 and 2.6 kernels.
