OCZ have further extended their flash memory product lineup with the new "OCZ Roadster USB 2.0 Flash Drive" series.


The ultra-portable "Top-Down" design of the OCZ Roadster makes data storage and transferring easier and more portable than ever. Best of all, there is no cap to lose with the OCZ Roadster's modern design. Unlike other convertible drives the Roadster remains ultra portable thanks to a very compact profile that manages to put all the memory components into the connector alone.

The OCZ Roadster is the ideal solution for anyone seeking ultimate portability with their personal USB flash drive; The compact and convertible design makes this unit small enough to carry on a keychain or in your pocket at all times, ensuring that it is always handy to access or transfer documents, music, pictures and videos from your home or work computer. In addition, the Roadster's small footprint means you'll never have to unplug surrounding USB ports to make room, a common problem with many oversized competitor drives.


"A major concern regarding traditional flash USB drives is how easy it is to misplace the cap, and unfortunately many capless solutions are either too bulky or require consumers to sacrifice performance" commented Alex Mei, VP of Marketing, OCZ Technology Inc. "The newest flash drive in OCZ's lineup, the OCZ Roadster, addresses these concerns with an innovative convertible capless design and a tiny profile, making this the perfect USB 2.0 USB drive for consumers on the go."
