PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES



Flash Survivorô is an extremely durable, water resistant, drop-tested flash USB memory drive. By design it is perfect for transporting valuable data such as personal files, photos and applications without having to worry about damage or loss of data due to the elements.


Features:

  • Encased in extremely strong CNC-milled, anodized aircraft-grade aluminum.

  • Water resistant to 200M through the use of a EPDM waterproof seal.

  • Protected from vibration or impact damage through the use of a molded shock dampening collar.

  • Plug-&-Play with any USB 2.0 certified peripheral computer port (backward compatible with USB 1.1).

  • Includes the True Crypt security application (Windows Vista/XP/2000 compatible only) allowing for a virtual encrypted drive using AES-256 encryption

  • USB extension cable and Dog Tags included

  • Protected by a Limited 10-year Warranty.


The Corsair Survivor comes in two models, the regular Survivor and the GT model, which I am testing here today. The GT uses matched, paired IC's to achieve the best data transfer rate possible, while the regular Survivor is a basic flash drive.

 

PRODUCT COMPOSITION


The Survivor GT comes in the standard blister-pack, showing off the drive and a quick list of features.



Within the packaging, Corsair has included the drive, a short USB extension cable for tight areas, and a Corsair-labeled dog tag with chain.

 

PRODUCT PICTORAL AND WALKTHROUGH


Approximately $150 USD will get you the 8gb model, which I am testing here.

 

 
As you can see from the above photo, the Survivor GT uses a machined aluminum shell to cover the drive when not in use. This makes for a solid, yet fairly bulky formfactor. Lanyard holes are available on both ends of the drive. Knurled rubber grips make the drive easy to open, although the grip on the drive end spun rather freely. This didn't affect the opening of the drive at all, however.


 
The base of the drive also contains a rubber o-ring, which makes the unit waterproof, up to 200 meters. Survivor indeed! I'm not aware of many drives that have this capacity. For that matter, I'm not quite sure why you would take your flash drive swimming, but you can rest assured that the Survivor won't be damaged if you happen to drop it in a puddle.
