  • Story Type: News Story; Groups: Linux
Corsair is known for their high-performance system memory and for the past two years or so, we have seen very innovative flash products from this memory leader.

Both of these USB flash drive series not only performed great and handled all of our durability tests, but it was also backed by a ten-year warranty and official support for Linux. Earlier this year, however, Corsair redefined durable flash drives by unleashing the Flash Survivor GT. In our premiere review of the Corsair Flash Survivor GT 8GB, the flash drive was not only fast but had withstood our harsh torture treatment, which consisted of letting the Flash Survivor GT rest at the bottom of an 8 foot deep pool, smashing it with a hammer, and even boiled it in a pot of water.

The etu utility now supports non jpeg formats in a very proper way: I would argue that it is perfect.
