Wrangling up USB drives
Subject: Storage | May 3, 2007 - 06:15 PM | Jeremy Hellstrom
HotHardware rounds up 4 of the newer flash drives available on the market. Ranging from a modest 1GB up to a 16GB from OCZ, they test the transfer speeds to see what they are made of. Transfer speeds are a big influence if you plan to use these sticks to enable Vista's ReadyBoost, so it can make a big difference now. If you want size, sometimes you have to sacrifice speed, but as this article shows; that is not always the case.
"Although they are very common nowadays and they all seem to offer pretty much the same functionality, USB flash drives
can actually differ in a number of ways. In this USB flash drive roundup, we take a close look at the features and
performance of a 4GB OCZ Rally2, a 16GB OCZ Mega-Kart, a 1GB Kingston DataTraveler ReadyFlash, and an 8GB Corsair Voyager
GT. Head on over to the site and check them out. You may be surprised by what you seeâ€¦"
