I had good fun torture testing this beast and it survived high temperatures of a torch, 45 min dunk in water, run over by a car several times and hit with a sledge hammer really hard, and it still works !

Well young fella, I guess I’m too old to understand this. Was this a personal challenge, or a contest or something. Anyway, that was one tough setup. If I want to beat, burn, drown, crush, or just rough up a mem. stick, I’ll know who to call.

Sorry in advance for being such a poopoo head. Looks to me like you were testing the security of the packaging more than the memory stick itself. It does not appear that the fire, water, heavy loading with car tire and sledge hammer blows had any impact on the drive. If you wanted to ship a critical memory stick, you have proven (to some degree) that plywood, tin and wax paper can protect a drive in transit.

It is an enclosure, but together with the memorystick it is an indesructable memory stick persay !

btw great quote ! ”—People say I hammer like lightning. It’s not that I’m fast—it’s that I never hit the same place twice!”
