the Corsair Survivor is still the official sim-on-a-stick stick and i had the chance to test out a brand new 32 gig one. they look identical and the 32 gig is at Amazon for $38 USD (suggested list is $49.99). that’s a great price considering that the 16 gig one was $37 last october
so getting down to the speed test – both are USB 3.0 and both are being used on USB 2.0 boxes – is the bigger one any faster, slower, or the same?
the big one is actually a tiny bit slower overall!
i suppose that has to do with it simply being a bigger space and it taking longer to get from one end to the other. is it a speed difference you would ever notice? lol, i don’t even think an OCD spaz like me could ever notice this minuscule diff!
now that i’ve been using the Survivor for 6 months i can report that i still love it. its funky and uber geeky size is what i like about it (yes, i did get picked on at school). now if anyone picks on me, i can clobber them with this mongo USB stick! plus it would be hard to lose it, if it fell off my keychain it would either hurt my toes or i’d trip over it! =D
should you get this stick?
nah, not unless your existing one broke, got lost, or was dropped out of a plane and fell into 600 foot deep water. the Survivor can withstand a G-force of 40 Gs and is waterproof to 200 metres – that will probably handle anything you build in OpenSim! =)
