OCZ 1GB Mini-Kart USB Thumb Drive
As flash memory becomes a more mature technology we see physical sizes going down while capacities go up. Today we take a look at a product that takes the reduced physical size to the extreme and find out at what premium does this reduced size come.

Wow that's small! I would just be so worried about breaking it... but still 1gb in something that small is not something you can laugh at.

The 1 gig model is the mid-range. It comes in 2 gigs and 512mb.

2x1 gig OCZ PC26400 Platinum, 2x1gig GSkill PC26400
Some other stuff,
Even more stuff,

error! error! error!
"57.5ms ... roughly half a second" More like, roughly half of a tenth of a second. It takes 1000 milliseconds to make a second, not 100.
Nice review though.

I remember getting a computer with a 1.6 gig hard drive, thinking I'd never fill that up........And now we have a small chip to replace that old drive.
I have an XD card in my camera with 1 gig storage.
So technology marches forward.
I have read about fluid technology where mechanical drives for storage were going to be antique.
There seems to be a two to three year jump in technology, making what we have outdated too soon.
