OCZ Technology Group, a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high
performance and high reliability memory, today announced an exciting new
addition to its award-winning lineup of flash drives. VBoost USB 2.0 Flash
Drives are optimized for Windows® Vista™ ReadyBoost™. Vista ReadyBoost enables
the OCZ VBoost to double as supplemental cache memory for faster retrieval and
storage of system data and applications. By providing an instant supply of
additional memory, this drive is a cost-effective alternative to expensive RAM
upgrades.

As Microsoft’s next generation operating system, Vista has many new features
that enhance the experience of users accustomed to XP’s look and feel. As
consumers make the switch to Vista, it is beneficial for users to expand on
compatible accessories and take full advantage of what Vista has to offer. Here
the VBoost prevails, not only by acting as a high-capacity storage device, but
by supporting ReadyBoost to impact application loading and closing time.

“OCZ is pleased to release the sleek and cap-less VBoost USB drive, which is
designed not only to be an exceptional USB flash drive but also for consumers
looking to take advantage of the benefits of ReadyBoost,” said Alex Mei,
Executive VP of OCZ Technology Group. “The VBoost drive is optimized for fast
easy access and increases system performance when paired with the Microsoft
Windows Vista ReadyBoost feature.”

Unlike flash drives with easy-to-lose caps, the VBoost features a retractable
USB key that is unsheathed it from its housing with the click of a switch.
Typical removable caps may get lost and leave the connector plug exposed to
possible damage, but the VBoost design eliminates the possibility of losing the
cap along with providing protection. Like all OCZ flash drives, portability and
size is a defining factor; users are able to operate adjacent USB ports without
needing to unplug other peripherals.

The VBoost flash drive is available in 1GB, 2GB, and 4GB capacities to truly
personalize the size needed for maximum ReadyBoost execution and desired
increase in system responsiveness. Although OCZ offers a full line of upgrade
memory modules for Vista desktops, the VBoost flash drive family is an effective
stand-in and is backed by a 3 year warranty for ultimate peace of mind.
