How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

The XtremKey is fast, rugged -- and expensive. If you just need a flash drive to tote your files around, there are much more affordable options, including some that support USB 3.0, like SanDisk's Extreme USB 3.0, which sells for as little as $18 for a 16GB version. However, if you need both the speed of USB 3.0 and an enclosure that, as Gadgetmac puts it, can withstand "extreme cold and heat, being submerged underwater, and then driven over for a 10 ton truck," the XtremKey might just be for you.
