Corsair Flash Survivor GT 8GB

We have tested multiple flash drives in the past with claims to be water resistant where we had dropped them in a glass of water and they had worked afterwards, but this is the first product to make its way to the bottom of a pool. This is also the first review where we have attempted to cook with the flash drive. Seeing how well the Flash Survivor GT could withstand heat, we had placed the 8GB flash drive in a boiling pot of water for over ten minutes.

When carrying out this test we were uncertain whether the Corsair Flash Survivor GT would be capable of withstanding the 100°C water (Editor's Note: The Flash Survivor GT has no official claims to heat resistant), but to much surprise the device had continued to work after pulling it out of the boiling water. We were also concerned as to whether the heat would suppress the waterproof seal, but it had not and the rubber had no apparent signs of damage. Finally, we wanted to see how durable the Flash Survivor GT really was so we had hit it with a hammer several times. After exerting much force with pounding the flash drive at least a dozen times, the anodized aircraft-grade aluminum housing was not damaged except for some minor scrapings where the hammer had hit the product. Plugging the device into a test system afterwards had assured us that no actual damage was done.
