Transfer speed has varied between 1.5 - 2.0 MB per second.
+ Great capacity
+ Fast enough for normal usage
- The outside rubber rings
- Minor quality issues with the labels
I bought the unit around Christmas 2007 to replace an old plastic 1GB unit that failed. I carried a flash drive im my pocket so that I always have access to my data, but the old one just wasn't rugged enough to co-mingle with coins and keys.
I purchased this unit specifically because of it's claims to be rugged. In that regard I have not been disappointed. The rubber o-ring on the inside should provide good protection from moisture, but I haven't tried to see if it will float.
I carry the Corsair Flash Survivor on my keyring, which is usually in my pocket. The outside of the aluminum case is showing a little wear from the keys, as I would expect, but drive itself is protected.
I have two issues with the flash drive. First, one of the labels on the drive was not correctly applied in the factory and had to be removed the first week I had it to prevent it from sticking to other items. This alone wouldn't have been enough to lower the rating if it wasn't for the second problem.
The quality and design of the rubber rings on the outside is an issue if you intend to carry this around like I do. Both of them are loose, and the one attached to the flash drive itself spins freely. It has even come detached a few times in my pocket, but so far I haven't lost it.
Overall, this a great product. And if you don't plan to carry it everywhere, you might not experience this issue.
Here's a little background about what I use flash drives for. I use a flash drive for three reasons: keep all of my documents on me (school, personal, business, web page design, programming, what have you), keep a good reference library with me, and to run some portable apps.
*Very strong casing. I suspect this flash drive could even survive an excursion in the pressure cooker. There are lots of reviews out there where people put this through the washer, run it over, hit it with golf clubs, drop in the pool for days, etc and it seems to do really well there.
*Portable applications run well on the drive
*Comes with keychain stuff, so it is nice to just keep the flashdrive on my keychain with no special usb stick case required
*The obviously larger storage capacity
*10 year warrenty (keep those reciepts scanned into your computer :) )
*The speed is just average for usb 2.0 flash drives: not horrible, but not excellent. For the price, I'd like excellent.
This was a good, worthwhile purchase. I expect this could be my primary flash drive some years until flash drives come in such a large capacity that they are essentially mini-back-up hard drives :) I'm sure this could be useful for 10 years or so if I really wanted it to be. The design seems especially nice if you happen to work in a hazardous place like a chemical plant, power plant, construction site, or some large scale manufacturing place or are especially prone to destroying flash drives.
The irony is, I barely touched the drive, and it died anyway.
For the several months I owned it, it got left home more often than not, partly because it was a backup to another, much faster USB 3.0 flash drive I owned, and partly because the big, tough-looking o-ring sealed case is too bulky to fit comfortably in a pocket all of the time. When I did need the drive, it proved to be slow, but that's not my main complaint. I used this drive no more than a few dozen times. And then it simply stopped functioning. The light lights up and flashes, but the drive is unreadable in any of my computers and it won't be recognized or reformatted by any OS, including Windows XP, Windows 7 and Mac OS. The Mac reports that the drive is unreadable and needs to be reformatted, but it fails when I tell it to go ahead.
For the record, this drive never got wet, sandy, salty, dropped or otherwise abused. The case looks rough-and-ready -- although I can't say whether it's as tough as it looks -- but the guts, apparently, are made of weaker stuff. The internal electronics died without any kind of harsh treatment whatsoever. This drive was a big, expensive disappointment.
