With USB flash drives going almost anywhere, memory manufacturers have realized this and are designing products that can withstand a fair amount of abuse whether it be leaving it in the washing machine or smashing it against the table a few times. While this quality of construction is good enough for most, for those that demand the absolute best Corsair Memory has designed an ultra rugged USB 2.0 flash drive. We threw it into an eight-foot deep chlorinated pool, boiled it in water for several minutes, and even beat it with a hammer, but was the Corsair Flash Survivor GT able to cope with all of these torturous events?

Features:

· Encased in CNC-milled, anodized aircraft-grade aluminum
· EPDM waterproof seal up to 200M
· Molded shock-dampening collar to protect from vibrations and impact
· USB 2.0 Plug-and-Play
· Corsair 10 year Limited Warranty

Unlike the Corsair Flash Voyager and Flash Voyager GT series that are available in multiple models, the Corsair Survivor is only available as a 4GB part and the Corsair Survivor GT is only offered with an 8GB memory capacity. The Flash Survivor is designed to offer the best industry-leading price while offering a rugged USB drive and the Flash Survivor GT is designed to provide faster data transfers using performance IC-paired memory and controllers along with being exceptionally rugged. At hand today we have the Corsair Flash Survivor GT 8GB and included with the flash drive was a USB 2.0 extension cable and Corsair dog tag. The Flash Survivor GT was packaged in a container similar to that of the Flash Voyager series.
