    You need to even your stance a bit, straighten that right knee a little... unless you were looking to get right under the stick, but then a lobbing wedge should've been the club of choice, surely?

    Guys you always do this... more colours on the graphs, some of them are very similar colours, and only because I knew what to expect could I work out which column was which... the less clued would wonder whether the big red bar was the Survivor or the Crucial SSD...

    Agreed - couldn't tell which was which.

    I bet I could kill it. I have a dodgy usb port on my case, it kills anything that you plug into it. So far, 2 mp3 players, a logitech wireless mouse dongle and LOADS of memory pens.

    The funny thing is, the only thing that was mine was one of the memory pens (which I got free!)

    Serves you right for using my USB ports without asking!!!
    With love and many thanks,

    Melons

    Have Corsair got anything to say about why the 8GB Voyager is so much faster?

    Seems bizarre that the newer product (Survivor) would be slower? Or is the Voyager actually a more recent design?

    Especially given the large size, if you have a lot of data that's going to be a lot of waiting... 10+ minutes for a DVD image or something Even accounting for the swapping sticks time, you could buy 4x 8GB voyagers and transfer your data quicker and be on the move with some just as tough sticks which worked out cheaper...

    Can't you create some tests that simulate real world conditions before moving onto the crazy stunts. How about:-

    - Dunking in a pint of beer - simulates itself.
    - Standing on
    - Scraping against bricks
    - Repeatedly dropped
    - Slightly crushed (Don't put it in a bench vice on the 1st go)
    - Giving it a run in a rock tumbler

    Come on guys, you can do better. Tell us what it "will" survive, and then move on to all the fun and games.
    dunking - how about cooking it? or boiling it.
    standing - tank? 'slightly' squashed it or how about running over it in a car.
    scraping against bricks - wedge+tarinder+hitting a brick wall = the same effect..
    dropped - 20ft drop not high enough?
    slightly crushed - <see standing>
    run in a rock tumbler - hows about lots of little tiny rock shaped things (bullets) hitting it instead?

    if it can survive that lot, I think it'll survive someone dropping it in the toilet, fishing it out, dropping it onto bathroom floor because its icky, accidentally standing on it when trying to pick it up, then giving it a dry in a tumble dryer.. (your suggestions but in a normal everyday situation.)

    I'll grab some more small-capacity samples from Corsair and give anything mentioned in this thread a go.

    I think water needs to be tested more, it claims to be 200m resistant. I know being boiled is fairly good test, but doesn't have the same pressure as 200m does
    Play tennis with it? Would give it a good durability test rather than one-off pressure, and keeps you fit

    I hope you guys never have to do a presentation to a tough audience. Those charts wouldn’t go down at all well.

    Cook it for a couple hours in a pressure cooker
