Corsair 16GB GT Rugged, Water & Shock Resistant USB Flash Drive

Laundered, baked, frozen, boiled, dropped, and even run over by a SUV! The Flash Voyager GT stands up to it's reputation as being one of the most rugged flash drives on the market. Waterproof and shock-resistant - What better way store your data?

OP You need to add the retailer and price to the title

Ok, if you pay me £5 via paypal i will delete my post and let you have the honours (_;)

How about I pay you a with 2 bricks and a cupful of rainbows? Seems like a fair trade

lol... no deal... I'll keep my post

Speedwise, mine is 29.1 and 17.5 for read/write.

Only flash drive I would buy. Great speed too.

been this price for weeks so not new deal. Vote hot because they are a cracking drive.:p

Got one a month ago and I agree thats its super-fast and well worth the money. Nice rugged feel about it too

I have a 1GB one I got 4 years ago and it's still going strong. I still think £1 a GB is a hot price though, this price could be improved soon.

If you pull the rubber back you can see the circuitry.

Bought one of these from Amazon a couple of months ago for ~ £35. This is a very good price for a very, very good flash drive.

Reminds me of the Bionic Man action figure of the 1970s

That's not the same one.

This is the GT version which (I THINK) is faster

Looking for a fast 16gb+ drive with good access times to plug into my new car stereo, anyone know if this or the 32gb Transcend Jetflash 600 would be better - hotukdeals.com/dea…e=2

Already got a 4gb version of the Transcend, and it's a great drive, just not big enough unfortunately.

I actually brought one of these in the end >.< and I sincerely regret it. I lost loads of my work due to corruption - I'm pretty **** at the moment. Also the read and write speeds aren't as fast as they claim. I do not recommend buying this product or anything to do with Corsair.

The other equivalent deal had a lot of good info in the comments, but it's been deleted now so I'll just quote some stuff from there:

On average, it seems you can expect the Corsair 16GB GT to do about 29MB/s read and 17MB/s write. In comparison the ByteStor 16GB Dataferry seems to do about 25MB/s read and 15MB/s write, which was £14.49 but has now gone back up to £16.99.

I just lost everything on this memory stick to corruption. It just corrupted its self!!!! Thank god for backups >.< won't be using this memory stick any more, will try and get a refund but I have lost the cap...

Looks like you may have bought a fake....

I bought one from Mymemory a couple of weeks back, I was impressed by the speed and would highly reccomend . The speed of the USB that is , Mymemory stuff always takes about five days to arrive.

think its a good price... but just a warning- it is bulkier than your average and often covers 2 adjacent usb slots rather than the one
