Thumb Drives are not usually the most exciting products on the market. It’s no doubt though, that they can be extremely useful when backing data up.. especially at a high speed. We are taking a look at the new OCZ Rally drive, which promises to leave the competitors in the dust.
OCZ definitely started out with thumb drives quite late in the game. Crucial and Corsair, among others have been around for a while. They knew they had to enter this huge market with a bang, and they certainly have. Without a doubt, this is currently the fastest thumb drive on the market, thanks to the Dual Channel memory chips. This was a very smart move by OCZ, and it will make a lot of customers happy. I am sure we will be seeing more DC thumb drives in the future by other companies as well. Ahh.. competition ;)
Not only does the Rally have blistering fast speeds, it also has great styling. The aluminum chassis and blue LED really help make this drive look stellar. In addition, it’s smaller than most other thumb drives out there, so you will not have a problem with it getting in the way of anything.
If I were to run out right now to pick up a thumb drive, it would be the OCZ Rally. Kudos to them for making their entry to the USB Thumb Drive market an incredible one. This product well deserves it’s 10/10 score and also get’s our Editors Choice award.
