  1. Freecom USB Card review

    Freecom USB Card review

    5  

    At £19, the Freecom USB DataCard is far from a serious investment. The design is simple and impressive - it's considerably thinner than OCZ's Mega Kart, meaning you really wouldn't feel the girth bulging out your wallet.

    Corsair Flash Voyager GT review

    Corsair Flash Voyager GT review

    9  

    The gimpy rubber sheath around the Corsair Flash Voyager GT's exterior may not be everybody's cup of tea, but there's no denying the power of this little stick. 8GB of the fastest Flash around nets you colossal transfer speeds.

    Corsair Flash Survivor GT review

    Corsair Flash Survivor GT review

    8  

    The Survivor is pricey for an 8GB drive. But then, it's packed with fast chips, and housed in aircraft-grade aluminium, for the major selling point of the Flash Survivor GT is its sheer toughness.

    Transcend V90 Pearl review

    Transcend V90 Pearl review

    9  

    While it takes a long time to write files to the Pearl, reading from it is impressively swift. But that's not the unique thing about the Pearl. It's tiny - and comes with a stylishly simple necklace chain, so you can wear it as a piece of jewellery.

    OCZ Rally review

    OCZ Rally review

    8  

    With some of the highest speeds on test, the dual-channel memory of the Rally nets it some healthy speed scores. While it doesn't quite reach the heights of the Corsair sticks, it still offers considerably better-than-average speeds.

    OCZ Reaper HPC PC2 8500 review

    Memory maestro OCZ is just going from strength to strength at the moment. Not only is the company consistently producing excellent products, but those products are very fairly priced, undercutting high-end competitors by a hefty margin

    Secure Digital Trifecta review

    Secure Digital Trifecta review

    8  

    The Trifecta is the latest gadget from OCZ, and is a variation on the Dual SD card, insofar as it's an SD card with its own USB connector head. The device stores the actual data on a Micro-SD card that slots into the side of the Trifecta

    Intel Turbo Memory review

    Intel Turbo Memory review

    9  

    Deployed as part of the new Centrino Duo and Pro platforms, Turbo Memory is implemented as either a 512MB or 1GB option alongside whatever SATA drive is installed. The caching scheme is actually intelligent enough to learn your usage habits

    Crucial 2GB SD card review

    10  

    The vast majority of the cameras that we get in to test come with piddly little storage cards that are next to useless. Really, what value is there in a 16MB card that will take perhaps ten shots before it fills up?

    Freecom FHD-2 Pro 120GB review

    Freecom FHD-2 Pro 120GB review

    9  

    Weighing in at just 175g, the FHD-2 Pro is also impressively slimline, measuring 127 x 79 x 15mm. Attractively finished in aluminium casework, the only protuberance is an illuminated button towards the rear

    SanDisk Cruzer Titanium U3 2GB review

    SanDisk Cruzer Titanium U3 2GB review

    10  

    The Cruzer Titanium has clearly been built with toughness in mind. How tough? Well it's able to withstand almost a ton bearing down on it - if that's not tough enough for you, we're not sure what is

    Sandisk Cruzer Titanium 2GB review

    7  

    USB Flash drives are commonplace, so it takes a distinctive approach to stand out. With a sleek metal case and retractable USB connector, the SanDisk Cruzer Titanium (£25 Inc. VAT) is one of the most distinctive drives we've seen

    Super Talent PC2-8000 review

    Super Talent PC2-8000 review

    6  

    Apparently all of Super Talent's overclockers' memory in this range is tested at 1,000MHz as standard, with nice tight latencies of 4-5-4-12 on a setup very similar to our rig's

    OCZ Titanium Alpha VX2 review

    OCZ Titanium Alpha VX2 review

    5  

    The shiny, colour-changing heatsink is just one reason to like OCZ's Titanium Alpha. The second is a lifetime guarantee for the sticks run at 4-4-4-15 at 1,000MHz - only Corsair's Dominator can challenge these sticks for high speeds and low latencies

    OCZ Spec Ops PC2-6400 review

    OCZ Spec Ops PC2-6400 review

    8  

    How embarrassing. We looked at the sub-£100, 1GB Spec Ops kit from OCZ as an experiment in how essential 2GB of RAM really is. We really didn't think it would do too well against its 2GB rivals

    OCZ Flex XLC PC2-9200 review

    9  

    At first glance it might look a bit like OCZ's new range of performance memory has been inspired by Corsair's Dominator, but if you were to pry apart those big metal fins, you'd find a very different story inside

    Kingston Hiper-X PC2-9600 review

    9  

    While Corsair got the first press release out announcing DDR2 RAM clocked at 1,200MHz, Kingston was the first to actually put sticks on the shelves, and we couldn't wait to get our hands on it

    Kingston Hiper-X PC2-9200 review

    8  

    We ran into an odd problem with this high-clocking memory set - for some reason, even at stock speeds, the motherboard wouldn't reboot. We're giving it the benefit of the doubt, though, since it's a very new motherboard

    Crucial Ballistix Tracer C2-8000 review

    8  

    Flashy lights may not be to everyone's taste, but we really like the high-end Tracer RAM from Crucial. Not only does it bathe the motherboard in a cool blue glow, but there are red and green LEDs on the top switch to indicate activity

    Crucial Ballistix PC2-6400 review

    6  

    Hurrah for Crucial! Two gigabytes of good solid 800MHz memory at a price-busting £214. We like the sound of that.Still, we remember the days when system RAM was much cheaper, so performance had better be up to scratch

    Corsair Dominator XMS2 8888 review

    9  

    Much has been written about Corsair's Dominator memory. These chips have been handtested to the lowest latencies and highest voltages of our group. The casing design draws heat from the centre of the PCB as well as the surface of the chips themselves

    CellShock PC2-6400 review

    9  

    We weren't expecting great things from this pair of sticks from CellShock. It's not a major brand we come across every day, and the heatspreader packaging is decidedly unexciting. Plain, black and bulky are the three nicest words we could use

    OCZ 2GB Secure Digital Dual SD card review

    OCZ 2GB Secure Digital Dual SD card review

    8  

    Genuinely useful and pretty damn innovative. Very rarely are such words thrown around, but OCZ's Dual SD cards are just that. It's a standard sized card, the sort that fits snugly into most cameras out there, but has no need of a card reader

    Lexar Jumpdrive FireFly review

    8  

    USB memory key capacities have steadily been increasing of late and the 4GB of space on the FireFly is now a cost-effective size. Other capacities are available, but at £70 (inc. VAT) this really is great value for your money

    OCZ PC2-8000 Titanum Alpha review

    8  

    Before you set out to develop your mad overclocking skillz, ask yourself what it is you're trying to achieve. Do you intend to make an older PC fast enough to keep up with the Oblivion-playing-Joneses, or are you a performance junkie?
