OCZ Rally2 Turbo 4GB Flash Drive Review

Rally your data

USB flash drives are almost standard issue amongst IT professionals, and are useful for students and pretty much anyone who uses more than one computer.  The capacities of today’s flash drives allow us to carry many gigabytes of personal data, so the write performance must also increase to fill the drive in a timely manner.  It was only two years ago when a good flash drive could read at a rate of 10 Megabytes per second, and today’s Memory Monsters are expected to reach 25MB a second or more!

Due to the nature of flash memory, it cannot be written to in the same way as volotile memory (like your computer’s DDR2 RAM), so a clever way to increase throughput is to make it dual-channel (as most motherboards have implemented to increase performance).

OCZ addresses the performance shortcomings of other USB flash drives with their Rally2 Turbo USB drive, which features dual-channel technology coupled with faster non-volitile memory, which should theoretically enable faster read and write throughput.

The Rally2 Turbo takes data transfer to incredible new heights and leaves the competitors in the dust thanks to the ultra-fast dual channel technology.


Store and transfer large music, pictures, videos, and data files to your laptop or desktop in record time or simply “Plug and Play” them instantaneously from the convenience of any USB port. The Rally2 Turbo Drive excels when managing a wide range of media, and is optimized to more rapidly transfer today’s larger files.

The ultra durable OCZ Rally2 Turbo stores vital documents, presentations, images, music and more in an ultra sleek pocket-size drive, so you can access your files without having to disconnect other USB ports to make room, a common problem with many oversized competitor drives.

Change to the fast lane, and take the incredible OCZ Rally2 Turbo Flash drive for a test drive. Designed to be the fastest most reliable USB flash memory drive on the market, it comes backed with a limited lifetime warranty for the ultimate peace of mind.
