The increasing demand for high capacity, portable data storage, has lead manufacturers to produce portable and convenient devices. OCZ Technology released its Mini-Kart USB Flash Drive which certainly fits this category of devices. The ultra slim and lightweight Mini-Kart, is an ultra-compact unit, only 2.8mm thick, small enough to fit in your wallet. What else do you need?
The performance of the Mini-Kart is quite good and despite its compact size, it can at times outperform other standard size USB Flash Drives. However, we believe performance, with regard to reading and writing transfer rates, is not the only or main characteristic we should look for in such an ultra-compact device. There's also reliability, which is backed by the OCZ brand name, in combination with the 3 years warranty.
At the time of this review, the price for the 512 MB Mini-Kart was US$37, while for the 1GB and 2GB at US$45 and US $55 respectively. At such prices, especially for the 1GB and 2GB units, we highly recommend this device.
