3. Final Thoughts
The need for constant backups and file sharing has made USB memory sticks the perfect solution for everyday use. As the need for larger data storage keeps growing, so does the capacity of memory sticks. In this review, we had the opportunity to try out one of OCZ's latest products, the OCZ Rally USB 2.0 (Dual Channel) Flash Memory Drive with 1GB storage capacity.
Looking back at the test results, the general feeling is that the OCZ Rally is fast, primarily when writing, but the Memorex TD according to Sisoft Sandra's endurance factor test, proved to be a far more robust solution (longer lifespan).
A minor disadvantage is the lack of a password protection system.
At the time of this review, the OCZ Rally USB 2.0 (Dual Channel) 1GB Flash Memory Drive was priced at US$64 from pricegrabber.com
