OCZ ATV 32GB USB Flash Drive

Packaging & Appearance

Packaging & Appearance

Due to their size and weight USB drives very rarely need little more than a blister pack to ensure their safe transportation. Furthermore, the blister packet style packaging is ideal for retail stores as it takes up little space and allows customers to get a good look at the product before purchase. As we can see from the images below this is exactly how OCZ have packaged the ATV, and although it's nothing overly fancy the USB flash drive market is all about cost per gigabyte which wouldn't be helped by lavish packaging.

A cardboard insert does all the talking for the ATV with a familiar looking blue and orange theme similar to what we've seen on some of OCZ's memory kits. At the front of the packaging are a few highlighted features of the device including support for Windows Vista's ReadyBoost , water resistance, shock resistance and of course a rather spacious 32GB capacity.

Cutting through the sealed packaging we can see the ATV in all its glory. With a rubberised black body complete with blue stripes and an orange ATV logo it's clear to see that OCZ have gone out of their way to make the drive look as rugged as it feels.

Attached to the end of the bearing-style keychain is a plastic cube designed to hold the lid of the ATV while in use. This is a great idea considering that both of the Rally2 flash drives we reviewed in the past are now missing their lids. However, the chain itself does feel quite prone to snapping - certainly more so than a traditional keyring.

Now that we've got the basics out of the way, let's see how the ATV stacks up performance-wise.

"Fancy being able to carry 32GB of data around in my pocket without looking like you're concealing a hard one (disk!)? The OCZ ATV 32GB may well have an affordable and rugged solution."

ROFL. Nice review mate and a reasonable price for 32GB of flash storage with additional protection from bumps and trips through the wash.
