Green House offers rugged USB flash drives

The Japanese USB flash drive maker Green House has created a new rugged flash drive that goes by the name of GH-UFI-XSB. The company claims this device is one of the most rugged USB flash drives on the market right now and can easily survive various extreme situations. The flash drive comes with a metallic chassis and can survive drops, high pressure, strong vibrations and other similar conditions and can work between -40 and +85 degrees Celsius.

The new rugged USB flash drive measures 47.2 x 17.2 x 7.8 mm and weighs just 10 grams. A nice feature of the device is that it uses SLC NAND flash memory, which is known to last 10 times longer than regular MLC NAND flash. The device also supports USB 2.0 only, which is an understandable drawback given its ruggedness, and reaches 27 MB/sec of read speed and 23.9 MB/sec of write speed. In addition the drive supports ECC.

The GH-UFI-XSB flash drive will offer numerous capacities – 128 MB, 256 MB, 512 MB, 1 GB, 2 GB, 4 GB, 8 GB and 16 GB. No word on pricing as of now. The flash drive will come with a 3-year warranty when it becomes available later this month.
