Excerpt: My first thought when I picked up the Corsair Flash Survivor USB drive was that it’s huge. Much bigger than the pictures had looked online. I would say it’s about a quarter inch longer than the average USB flash drive , and a quarter of an inch taller. If you’re looking for a small, discrete flash drive , look else where. The Corsair flash Survivor USB drive is cylndar shape and tough as a tank. Which is it’s biggest selling point.
Summary: I have purchased and use just about every brand and type of Jump drives. The Corsair designed like the one in the picture in my opinion can not be beat. The loop to put a key ring is made of metal so it does not break under normal use and you can drop the jump drive in water when the cap is in place and no damage will occur. Since purchasing this type I have bought a few more for friends.
Summary: I've had this flash drive for a little over a year, and so far, it's made it through a trip through the washer, being repeatedly thrown at walls, and numerous attempts by my friends to break it by jumping on it. I trust it with every project I turn in for my college courses.
Summary: Convenient to have on my keyring. I accidently closed it in the hatchback door of my car once and it survived with a small dent. Lost one of the rubber ends but not too big of a deal. I didn't realize when I bought it that it would only format to Mac but that was probably my oversight and not a deficit of the product itself. The only thing I did find was that I was unable to use it to print pictures at walgreens because of the formatting. Maybe it can be reformatted?
Summary: I got a new laptop with USB 3.0 ports and being imapatient as I am, I wanted quick data transfer. I found this survivor flashdrive and it appealed to me because of the high grade aluminum and shock resistance. I have broken many a flashdrive in my day so I love the idea of this durability. It is surprisingly light but very strong. It unscrews with a small rubber seal ( for water resistance I assume?) and unveils the drive Itself.
Summary: All in all very pleased with this device. I accidentally sent it through the wash in my pocket and it came out the other side completely dry inside. The only negative things are the corners of the recessed lanyard connection are sharp and will scratch other things in a pocket and the rubber grips tend to slide off over time.
Pros: - Solid Design, - Waterproof, - Fast Data Transfer
Cons: - Rubber Grips Slip after a while, - Lanyard connection scratched my phone screen
Summary: I love this little flash drive. It was my first USB 3.0 flash drive. I am converted! If your transferring files that are larger you need to get a USB 3.0 drive. Even with a computer with only USB 2.0 the drive is much faster than a USB 2.0 flash drive. I will only get USB 3.0 drives from here on. It's worth the extra money.
Summary: This is a great flash drive. I have had it for several years now on my keys and it has held up very well. The only issue is even when its not attached to my keys it is kind of heavy and awkward to fit in some devices. It's still worth the purchase though.
