Don't Get In The Sh*t
If you are looking for a tough data storage medium, Corsair have unveiled an extremely rugged line of USB 2.0 flash drives called Flash Survivor. Designed and engineered to be the industryâ€™s toughest USB drive, Flash Survivor is water-resistant, CNC-milled aluminum encased, and shock-proof to safely store userâ€™s information and files in the most demanding environments.
Offering unique features and the best price/performance solution in the market - Flash Survivor is immediately available in two variations:
Flash Survivor GT 8GB and Flash Survivor 4GB Flash Survivor Features Include:
Water Resistant to 200 Meters (650 Feet) / 20 Atmospheres_Sealed with an EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) waterproof seal, Flash Survivor is designed to provide 200 meters of water resistant durability. During these tests, no leaking or compromised integrity of the data on the drive was found.
Shock Proof â€“ Triple Point Protection_Flash Survivor features triple-point protection against shock and impact:
Encased in CNC (Computer Numerical Control) milled aluminum (as found in aircraft part production) ensures consistency in material quality, thereby guaranteeing the USB driveâ€™s toughness.
Additional protection from shock and vibration is achieved through the use of rubber molded collar shielding. When dropped, the durable rubber absorbs the impact force to prevent damage to the inner drive and the USB connector.
Engineered outer metal tube with two end caps provides enforcement to the hollow tube and prevents it from collapsing when abused.
5 Times faster than other drives (GT version).
Pre-loaded with a security application with 256bit AES encryption, the most secure encryption algorithms available.

Storing your valuable information on a USB flash drive capable of weathering the storm of everyday life while ensuring your data is safe â€“ that is what Flash Survivor is all about,â€� continued Peterson.
