OCZ Rally2 Turbo
Packaging & Appearance
OCZ packaging is known for being fairly flashy, sporting bright colours and graphics. OCZ flash drives are usually no exception. For the Rally2 Turbo however, OCZ have done away with the bright colours and have gone with a more sinister looking black blister pack.
The front and back of the packaging is fairly standard. Giving customers a good look at everything they're getting and outlining some of the drives features. There is no mention of the Rally2 Turbo's extremely impressive transfer speeds or information about the dual channel write / read system employed but this is no surprise with shop tailored packaging.
The contents of the package is kept to the basics. Buyers are presented with a white lanyard, a USB extension cable and the drive itself. The same contents as seen in the previous Rally2.
A large part of a flash drives appeal; next to price, is its looks. With such a wide range of drives available in each size, mostly with at least similar specs, looks can often be the deciding factor in the purchase. Despite the Rally2 Turbo having its apparently massive transfer speeds to fall back on, its still nice to have something easy on the eye.
As you can see, the Rally2 Turbo has the same shell as the original Rally2, sporting the same graphic and colours. The only visible addition is the scrawled writing reading 'Turbo'.
The body of the drive itself is constructed in black aluminium, making it fairly robust. Each end of the drive is tipped with a transparent plastic, one end housing an orange LED which indicates drive activity. One thing raised in the review of the previous Rally2 was the independent cap, which could lead to it easily being lost.
The lanyard supplied is white nylon and allows the users to wear the drive around their neck. While not the most likely fashion accessory, having the drive to hand can always be useful in a busy environment.
