Now that LCD screens have found their way even to mass storage devices - Corsair ReadOut we reviewed earlier, it's hard to think of anything new to add to a USB Flash device. Corsair keeps surprising, now with Survivor concept of tough USB memory with nice 8 GB capacity. It's advertised to be very durable and faster than your average USB memory device. Let's find out if any of this is true.

The Survivor



Ordinary package, less ordinary content.

Starting from the package, this product is rather military styled. Specifications are printed on top of a camo pattern. Memory itself looks like some sort of scifi ammunition. Nice addition is the USB extension cord, though it's rather short if you have your PC located under the desk. If your pockets are filled with other cadgets, Survivor can be carried on your neck using the supplied necklace. Physically the memory feels very solid and why wouldn't it: it's made out from aluminum. Stickers on both sides take away some of that high quality feeling. These stickers start peeling of immediately when in use.


Capacity: 8 GB
Waterproof: 200 meters
Connection: USB2.0 / USB1.1
Warranty: 10 years
Software: True Crypt
Dimensions: 82x21 mm


See the thin o-ring on the base which makes the case waterproof? Big wide rubber rings are mainly for looks, they don't seal anything. Opening mechanism is very simple but strong: threads. Blue led indicates that there is data being transfered. Physically this flash memory is very convincing excluding the cheap stickers. When dropped, the floor is more likely to take damage than the Survivor itself.
