Breaking stuff so you don't have to!
My first Hardware 2.0 Torture Test of the Corsair Flash Voyager GT was so much fun and such a hit with the readers that I have more Torture Tests planned. Given the feedback that I received from readers as to added tests that I could have carried out on the Voyager GT I thought I'd give you a heads-up as to what I've got lined up and see if you have some suggestions as to how I can break these gadgets.
- Cases I have a load of cases from Stormcase, Otterbox, Peli and Seahorse for testing. The claims made by the manufacturers are that these cases are waterproof, dustproof, impact-resistant and highly durable. I've got a whole load of harsh tests ideas but I'm open to cruel and unusual suggestions!
- USB Flash Memory After the harsh test I Corsair Flash Voyager GT I was surprised that Corsair offered to send me Flash Survivor for testing. This is an 8GB USB flash memory stick wrapped in a CNC-milled, anodized aircraft-grade aluminum and is water-resistant to 200M thanks to an O-ring. This is a seriously tough nut!
