OCZ Roadster 1GB Flash Drive

Introduction

Introduction

Today the need for the transportation of data from A to B is more important than ever and in recent years manufacturers have been squeezing more and more storage into smaller and smaller products, to the point where one small key sized item can replace thousands upon thousands of sheets of paper. Slowly these devices have become indispensable, not just in the work place but in the home and every day life, and have even recently been finding their way onto our key rings.

One of these products is the OCZ Roadster, a tiny USB flash drive allowing users to carry masses of information in a form that wont get scratched or cracked. Granted, USB flash drives aren't that new, nor are they as fool proof as they were first portrayed to be but this particular drive has something invaluable up its sleeve: its size...

OCZ Roadster

Instantaneously play music, view images, or open files as if the Roadster was an onboard hard drive."

OCZ have always been at the forefront of innovative memory solutions and this certainly looks to be no exception but, as with all products that pass through Overclock3D, the Roadster will be put through its paces in a series of benchmarks before an outright conclusion is formed. Read on and see how this micro flash drive is packaged and how it fares in HD Tach and SiSoft Sandra testing.
