DAILY MANIFESTO

Corsair Flash Memory

Posted on Wednesday, November 5 @ 17:04:43 Eastern by Chris_Hudak
Product-a-day ruminates on some flash drives today. Remember the first time you actually sat down and considered just how indispensably convenient, say, the cell phone actually is?

How it made you wonder just how the hell people could possibly have functioned on a daily basis before everybody had them? I had a moment sort of like that the other day as I backed up and transported the really important audio content on my laptop—ALL of it, in one shot—with the 32GB Flash Survivor  from Corsair; how the hell did I ever manage to shuttle/transport my important files around from computer to computer, dicking around with puny—and in some cases, surprisingly fragile--little 1GB flash drives? What exactly was I thinking, back in those dark, primitive, steam-powered days…about two weeks ago?

Encased in a tough, anodized-aluminum tube, the Flash Survivor is Plug & Play with any USB 2.0 port (compatible with USB 1.1), and comes with a USB extension cable and a dog-tag I haven’t quite figured out what to do with just yet. The screw-lid tube itself is rubber-sealed and water-resistant to 200m (including, as I quickly discovered to my horror-followed-by-intense-relief, toilet water—just don’t even ask) If you actually have to use the limited 10-year warranty due to any sort of any impact-related damage, you really want to re-evaluate how you’re treating your computer accessories.

If even that small, nigh-indestructible, military-looking tube is just too much for your dainty sensibilities/keychain/fashion sense, there’s still the other end of the Corsair spectrum—the ridiculously-small Flash Voyager Mini. At four gigs of storage, this dinky little thing can hold more than half the audio/video files currently clogging up my cell phone. If you don’t have room to carry this thing, then you also don’t have room for two U.S. quarters stacked together—just enough for a call from a pay-phone, to tell the world how much your life sucks.
