USB is now a standard feature on all PCs and makes it much easier for users everywhere to plug in everything from digital cameras to MP3 players to their PCs.
Today, USB 2.0 or Hi-Speed USB, provides an even greater enhancement in performanceâ€”up to 40 times faster than USB 1.0, with a design data rate of 480 megabits per second (Mbps). One such device that takes advantage of this great technology is the OCZ Rally2 Dual Channel 32GB Flash Drive.
Supports Plug-and-Play Functionality
USB sticks can be found in all different shapes and sizes. The OCZ Rally2 flash drive packs up to 32GB worth of data in a compact and light-weight aluminum chassis.
The Rally2 has a dual channel internal interface which leads to awesome performance when writing and reading data from it. This USB stick comes in a plastic clamshell packaging which protects the device from any shipping damage without fault.
OCZ helped developed flash memory as a new technology that allowed stored data to be saved even when the memory device was disconnected from its power source.Â The said flash drive stores documents, presentations, images, music and videos to your laptop or desktop PC very easily. Furthermore, this flash drive has dimensions of 2 5/8″ x 5/8″ for its length and width respectively. It comes with a classy black case with LED and carrying strap.
The Rally2 flash drive supports plug-and-play functionality. With plug-and-play technology and a compatible computer OS, this flash storage device can be placed into a computer and quickly recognized and accessed by the computer. Moreover, the OCZ Rally2 is compatible with any Mac OS versions. Another feature of the Rally2 flash drive is that it is USB 2.0 certified. As expected, the OCZ Rally drive comes with full support for USB 2.0. That means it can transfer data via the USB 2.0 port at rates of up to 480Mbps. This is a far cry from USB 1.1′s maximum throughput of 12Mbps.
OCZ Rally2 has a distinct special feature of incorporating Dual Channel Technology. That simply means that OCZ used two flash memory chips in each of their flash drives that allow the flash controller to double the read and write speed, by reading from and writing to both chips at the same time.
Flash memory technology has evolved into the preferred storage media for a variety of consumer and industrial devices â€“ the OCZ Rally 2 Dual Channel 32 GB Flash Drive notwithstanding. The incredible OCZ Rally2 Flash Drive is designed to be a fast and reliable USB flash memory drive, perfect for the discerning user.
