Yeah, so it’s official. OCZ, manufacturers or RAM and non-volatile storage, have a fetish: they like’em small. Last time we looked at one of their products, it was the Mega-Kart 8GB, a credit card sized flash drive that we felt wasn’t a good idea for the simple reason that it invited to be fatally sandwiched between one of your buttocks and a hard, flat surface, like a chair. This time around though, we’re a little more intrigued. It’s called the Roadster, and could possibly be the smallest USB drive we’ve laid eyes on. Yeah, we know, we’re two months late on this, but hear us out. It’s a 1GB drive, compatible with USB 2.0 that works on Windows, Mac and even Linux. But most importantly, it weighs 6 grams, which is next to nothing. It’s got a fold-out USB connector, so you don’t even need a protector cap.
Best part is, it’s damn cheap, at about $25 after mail-in rebate, at NewEGG.
