CORSAIR Survivor 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFSV3-64GB
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Rugged Drive, mostly good 03/22/2013

This review is from: CORSAIR Survivor 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFSV3-64GB

Pros: Extremely Rugged
High Capacity

Cons: Slows significantly when full

Other Thoughts: I've had this drive for a while, and I've filled it up to about 40gigs or so. It's easily the best flash drive you can buy in terms of Durability. It's also pretty good as far as performance goes, with one issue.

Performance was very good until I started filling it close to the half-way mark. After I hit about the 25-ish gigabyte mark (About half full), the drive started to become sluggish. While browsing files on it, or just moving things around, there are quite a few times where the drive stops responding for a second or two then comes back. This was not the case back when it had less than 20-ish gigs of data on it.

This is my first 64gig flash drive, so I can't say if this is an issue with just Corsair, or if it's an issue with all high-cap flash drives. All I can say is that it performs well until you start filling it up. Ultimately though, I bought it for the durability and not the speed, which makes this issue bearable.

4 out of 5 eggs Reliable Drive 01/11/2013

This review is from: CORSAIR Survivor 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFSV3-64GB

Pros: Durability, speed, reliability

Cons: speed, size, rubber ends seem "grimy", limited size

Other Thoughts: This is actually my third Survivor drive, but for good reasons. I've never had any fail on me. I started with a silver 16GB, then upgraded to a Black 32GB and sold the 16 to a friend. Now I sold my 32GB and picked up this 64GB. All three have worked flawlessly.

As for speed, it's reasonably fast. It blows away most cheaper drives. I would, however, like to see it be a little faster. Ideally, I would like a larger 128GB survivor with speeds above 100MB/s up and down. Having speeds closer to 150 would be wonderful. The only reason I knocked off an egg is for the lack of a 128GB version, and speeds that still stay under 100MB/s when the rest of the market is nearing 200MB/s. Given that, I understand that this drive has durability in mind, not just performance. So maybe I shouldn't have taken away that egg...

Speaking of durability, this drive would have survived 2012 if anything had actually happened. While I've smashed and destroyed cheaper plastic drives, this one has protected my data valiantly. If you have an active lifestyle and need to carry projects and files, this is the drive to get. Also, if you tend to be clumsy with your delicate electronics, you need this drive.

One last thing, the rubber ends seem to give off a black grime in some cases. I've noticed it in the heat of summer a lot. This could be the dye used in the rubber, although I'm not really sure. I'm just getting nit-picky here though. I won't take away an egg for something as minor as that.

Overall, it's a great drive. What it lacks in high-cap storage and speed, it makes up for by surviving everything you can throw at it.

SABRENT EC-UST25 Aluminum 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Good, cheap method of storage 11/23/2012

This review is from: SABRENT EC-UST25 Aluminum 2.5" USB2.0 to SATA External Enclosure

Pros: Cheap, Portable, well-built

Cons: Not as fast as a USB 3.0 drive. That much is obvious though.

Other Thoughts: I got this drive to utilize an old 750gig laptop drive I had lying around after I upgraded my laptop to an SSD. This enclosure allowed me to use it as a backup drive, rather than let it sit around collecting dust.

It's fast for a USB 2.0 drive, and it's well-built. I like the aluminum enclosure itself as it seems to be of high quality. The plastic ends and screws however seem cheap, and could strip easily. Be careful when you're putting it together.

I use this all the time now, and I may actually buy another for a second laptop drive I found lying around. At the price, this can't be beat.
