The Traxdata Waterproof USB Flash Drive is a well built solid memory stick which offers fast read and write speeds. I prefer Traxdata’s square build approach as it leads to a more sturdy reliable product. I’ve ended up breaking other waterproof products because they were too thin and not strong enough.
The 8 gig model provides ample storage space for most people, but Traxdata do offer larger capacities if you need to bring huge amounts of data around in your pocket. Admittedly, I haven’t tested the waterproof feature; I don’t think it would’ve gone down too well with Traxdata if I drowned this review model!
Here are some benchmark numbers for comparison purposes
Neo 8 GB Write 1 Read 4
OCZ 8GB Waterproof Write 8 Read 30
Traxdata Waterproof Write 8.5 Read 31
Speeds are in megabytes per second. Tested in Vista Ultimate 64bit.
I can’t find a single flaw with this product & it has everything going for it. So I’m happy to give the Waterproof USB Flash Drive 5 stars!
