The Flash Survivor is twice both the size and weight of most flash drives. This drive would be as well suited to smuggling diamonds as it is to carrying mp3's and word documents around. If you need a seriously robust flash drive, then this is almost certainly going to be your best choice. From a performance perspective the Flash Survivor is slightly below average but there are no glaring weaknesses, it has a well-rounded performance profile. Finally in terms of value this drive is towards the bottom of the pile unless you need super rugged features in which case it's a very good option. [Jun '12 USBFlashPro]
