While OCZ Technology's roots are with system memory, recently they have been pushing the envelope for flash media through several innovations. OCZ Technology had begun by introducing the Rally, which was an incredibly high performance dual channel flash drive. In fact, the Rally was the first consumer flash drive to steal the performance crown from Corsair's Flash Voyager in our tests. After that OCZ had pushed the physical limits of the flash drive by unleashing the Mini-Kart. The OCZ Mini-Kart ships in a variety of capacities while using an incredibly small footprint of 43 x 19 x 2.8mm. In addition, coming out of this company has been the Rally2 and Roadster. However, now OCZ is after pushing the storage capacity for USB flash drives. The OCZ Mega-Kart offers an incredible 8GB capacity while also retaining a small footprint. In fact, its design allows the USB flash device to be carried in a wallet.

Around the same time that OCZ had announced the Mega-Kart, Corsair had announced an 8GB model for its Flash Voyager series. We anticipate other manufacturers will release 8GB varieties in the near future as well. While 8GB flash drives aren't the largest capacity flash drive possible (the Kanguru Flash Drive Max offers a 64GB capacity but will set you back $2800 USD; The BUSlink Pro2 64GB costs $5000), the 8GB varieties are the largest flash drives for computer users that won't cost you a pretty penny. No user manual or driver CD was included with the OCZ Mega-Kart. The Mega-Kart is compatible with the Linux 2.4 kernel or newer, Windows 98 or newer, and MacOS 9.0 or newer.
