What’s in your Man Bag?

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

After a few folk on-site recently have been laughing at my “hand bag”. I keep telling them it’s a man bag which I keep my notebook in and a few other things! I’m always complaining to Lindsey about not being able to find her keys in her many bags that she uses, it’s prompted me to take a photograph of the items in my man bag!

The Flash Survivor GT 64GB by Corsair USB flash drive

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

Mine’s bigger than yours comes to mind!

I’ve been looking for a portable storage solution for a while to carry around some DVD isos, and VMware images but also wanted a sturdy pen drive.

Well you don’t get sturdier than this one.

  • Encased in extremely strong CNC-milled, anodized aircraft-grade aluminum.
  • Water resistant to 200M through the use of a EPDM waterproof seal.
  • Protected from vibration or impact damage through the use of a molded shock dampening collar.
  • Plug-&-Play with any USB 2.0 certified peripheral computer port (backward compatible with USB 1.1).
  • USB extension cable and Dog Tags included.
  • Protected by a Limited 10-year Warranty.

You may have noticed that the Corsair dog tag is upside down, I didn’t notice until after the photograph, am I supposed to wear the dog tag?

The 64Gb flash drive is quite long, and probably one of the longest flash drives around, it’s certainly not a short flash drive. It measures about 10cm long.

Some typical geeky, nerdy benchmarks for Read/Write

Flash Toolkit Benchmarks

Flash Toolkit Benchmarks - CMFUSBSRVR-64GBGT

CrystalDiskMark 2.2 Benchmarks

CrystalDiskMark 2.2 Benchmarks - CMFUSBSRVR-64GBGT

HD Tune Pro Benchmarks  - CMFUSBSRVR-64GBGT

HD Tune Pro Benchmarks - CMFUSBSRVR-64GBGT

So, 30MB/sec for Read and 18MB/sec for Write.

So if you want a big, rugged, 10 year warrantied flash drive opt for the Flash Survivor GT 64GB by Corsair!
