OCZ 2GB Diesel USB 2.0 Flash Drive ReviewSun, Mar 08, 2009 - 12:00 AM
Final Thoughts and Conclusions
The OCZ 2GB Diesel USB 2.0 Flash drive is a decent little device as long as you aren’t looking for blistering fast transfer rates. The Diesel should be fast enough for mainstream use or for those that don’t do a whole lot of file transfers. If you only use a USB 2.0 Flash drive to back data up or to move files around when needed the Diesel should be perfect. The OCZ Diesel also has a slick looking appearance and is certainly not bad looking by any means. If you are in the market for a USB 2.0 Flash drive and don’t want to spend more than needed be sure to give the OCZ Diesel a closer look. Just remember that the OCZ Diesel USB 2.0 Flash drive series is available in 2GB, 4GB, 8GB and 16GB capacities.
2GB – OCZUSBDSL2G
4GB – OCZUSBDSL4G
8GB – OCZUSBDSL8G
16GB – OCZUSBDSL16G
When it comes to pricing the 2GB version can be purchased for just $5.99 and the 16GB version is selling for $15.99 after a $10 mail-in-rebate, which is an amazing value. The OCZ 16GB Diesel is actually the lowest priced 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive out of the 34 drives available on Newegg, so you can see how the Diesel does well when it comes to price versus performance. Add in the fact that is comes with a two year warranty and you have a nice drive to carry all your songs, photos, and documents when you’re on the go.
Legit Bottom Line: The OCZ 2.0 Diesel USB 2.0 Flash Drive doesn’t have ground breaking performance numbers, but what is lacks in performance it makes up with a sexy price tag.
