This is out of the ordinary for what [H]ard|OCP typically reviews, but USB flash drives come in really handy. We put our VisionTek Xtreme2 GO Drives into a zip-up pocket on a pair of cargo shorts and sent them for a thorough cleaning, with soap, and dryer sheet applications as well. The results are that our Xtreme2 GO Drives lived up to their “Xtreme” namesake and worked just fine even after our abuse. File that under "odd hardware testing", but it is applicable. These look pretty slick too, and when you can get a 1GB unit for $100 or so (with rebates), that's pretty good, especially considering getting 1GB of desktop DDR can be even more expensive. I would read the review if you're looking at a USB flash drive.
