There are two big benefits to the ATP EarthDrive, and one small one.  The small benefit is an increase in speed compared to previous ATP models, though the bump was not big enough for this drive to win any speed awards.  The biggest benefit is the almost indestructibility of this drive.  We have seen other companies offer drives that can be run over with a car and still probably work, but waterproof drives are rare.  As well as being waterproof, a portion of the cost of every drive is donated to American Forests.  Check out Overclocker’s Club for more.

“The ATP EarthDrive uses a manufacturing process called “System in Packaging” that, according to ATP Electronics’ website, “encapsulates all exposed components and points of failure.” This means that the drive should be very durable and waterproof. I’m sure you all want to know if this SIP process works, so I dunked the EarthDrive in water for about an hour. After I let the drive dry off (so I don’t burn up my own USB ports), I plugged it into my laptop, and it came right up with no problems. Now, you no longer have to worry about ruining your flash drive if it goes through the washer – but you probably shouldn’t put it through the wash, just to be on the safe side.”
