Torture Testing - Coming next ...

Summary:Breaking stuff so you don't have to!

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!

Ideas?  :-)
