The Corsair Survivor flash drive came with an open source on the fly encryption software called TrueCrypt. This is a great option for business users who are constantly moving important files from machine to machine.

However, I did not install TrueCrypt as I am going to use the drive to hold all of my testing utilities and benchmark programs so I will need to have them on a non-secured drive.

Here is the properties shot of the drive upon connection to our test PC.

SiSoftware Sandra Lite gives a better idea on how quick the drive is.

The endurance break down of the test and drive size taken from SiSoftware Sandra Lite.

The Survivor from Corsair has the space to store just about anything you need to on it. The flash drive does come in a water proof case that also helps in the durability of the device. It also comes with a short USB expansion cable that lets users bring the flash drive closer to the front of the case if a front USB slot in not open.

The seal is tight enough to keep water from damaging any of the internal parts at up two 200 meters. It was tested in a 35 Gallon fish tank and dish washer and came out alive.

Not really a big issue, but the smaller rubber ring was not glued down and slips. Overall size is a little larger than I am used to in a portable flash drive but it doesn't get in the way of things.

Thanks to Corsair for sending over this sample!



Pros:

  • Comes with encryption software
  • 8GB of storage space
  • Water proof
  • Durable case


Cons:

  • Slipping rubber grip / anti shock piece.
