OCZ Release Flash Drives Designed For Vista ReadyBoost

OCZ Technology Group, a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high performance and high reliability memory, today announced an exciting new addition to its award-winning lineup of flash drives. VBoost USB 2.0 Flash Drives are optimized for Windows® Vista™ ReadyBoost™. Vista ReadyBoost enables the OCZ VBoost to double as supplemental cache memory for faster retrieval and storage of system data and applications. By providing an instant supply of additional memory, this drive is a cost-effective alternative to expensive RAM upgrades.

As Microsoft’s next generation operating system, Vista has many new features that enhance the experience of users accustomed to XP’s look and feel. As consumers make the switch to Vista, it is beneficial for users to expand on compatible accessories and take full advantage of what Vista has to offer. Here the VBoost prevails, not only by acting as a high-capacity storage device, but by supporting ReadyBoost to impact application loading and closing time.

“OCZ is pleased to release the sleek and cap-less VBoost USB drive, which is designed not only to be an exceptional USB flash drive but also for consumers looking to take advantage of the benefits of ReadyBoost,” said Alex Mei, Executive VP of OCZ Technology Group. “The VBoost drive is optimized for fast easy access and increases system performance when paired with the Microsoft Windows Vista ReadyBoost feature.”

Unlike flash drives with easy-to-lose caps, the VBoost features a retractable USB key that is unsheathed it from its housing with the click of a switch. Typical removable caps may get lost and leave the connector plug exposed to possible damage, but the VBoost design eliminates the possibility of losing the cap along with providing protection. Like all OCZ flash drives, portability and size is a defining factor; users are able to operate adjacent USB ports without needing to unplug other peripherals.

The VBoost flash drive is available in 1GB, 2GB, and 4GB capacities to truly personalize the size needed for maximum ReadyBoost execution and desired increase in system responsiveness. Although OCZ offers a full line of upgrade memory modules for Vista desktops, the VBoost flash drive family is an effective stand-in and is backed by a 3 year warranty for ultimate peace of mind.
