So I’ve had the 32GB Corsair Flash Survivor for a few days now which has been time enough for me to run some benchmarks on it and see how practical it is for every day use. I must say, I love it, I was copying some files to it for a friend, and I came to the realization that for once I didn’t have to worry about copying too much and filling up the flash drive mid copy as there is almost nothing I could copy to this drive that would fill it up.
So I got a package from FedEx today, inside was the Flash Survivor 32GB model, its new, and its hot, not literally though. Inside the package were the flash drive tube thingy, a USB extension cable, and a Corsair dog tag/chain that I chose to put the flash drive on along with the dog tag.
If the 2, 4, 8, and 16 gigabyte capacities weren’t large enough for you, you’ll be happy to know they’ve moved up on the binary scale to a new 32GB capacity. These flash drives are nearly impossible to destroy, they are element proof and have had all sorts of nasty things done to them in an effort to figure out just what the physical limits are.
Having storage to go is always convenient, and USB flash drives has proven to be very useful in transporting files. As flash drive capacities in the market gets bigger and cheaper, more people are relying on it as their “to go” storage.
Corsair Readout is a USB 2.0 flash drive that features a built-in display to show the capacity usage, free space left on the drive, and a personal ID/label. It uses "Bi-stable Cholesteric Display" (BCD) allowing the display to operates up to one year without the use of a battery.
I've been intrigued by Corsair's Survivor GT Flash Drive since it came out a little while back. I currently have a Corsair Voyager which is plenty strong enough to stand up to what I throw at it, but the Survivor promises to stand up to just about anything. The guys over at EverythingUSB got their hands on one and decided to put it to the test; here's what they found.
Many companies are trying to go green and be more environmental friendly. Corsair, one of the memory experts went green with its VX series power supply. The VX family is available in two models, VX450W and VX550W.
Not too long we covered one of Corsair's upcoming flash drives that touted its ability to withstand just about anything. Today they have released the Flash Survivor.
These tough little drives are built from heavy-duty aluminum with a rubber collar to help in shock-absorption. The drive is also well-sealed in the event that it is submerged in water.
It might not look too impressive - in fact it's plump, brash and rubbery - but this Corsair Flash Voyager GT is a 4GB thumb-drive with a difference. Two differences, actually; firstly that it can withstand such hardships as a full wash and spin-dry cycle, being run over with a truck and thrown at a concrete floor, and secondly that it's Corsair's fastest every flash drive. Potential top-speeds of 34MB/s read and 28MB/s write could mean an install of Vista in half the time it takes to do so from a DVD.
Everything USB plugged it in and checked it out, and you can't ask for a clearer recommendation:
"Incredibly fast and especially durable, what's not to like? You'd be foolish not to spend the extra $10 for Corsair's speed demon of a flash drive"
