    OCZ Technology Group, a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high performance and high reliability memory, today introduced the Slate Series ExpressCard, a storage expansion drive for the latest generation of performance notebooks. The integration of express card storage is ideal for mobile users who want the peace of mind knowing they will always have a backup option and experience the convenience of an internal solution that eliminates peripheral devices.


    The Slate Series ExpressCard is ideal for the on-the-go notebook user that needs a backup storage method but does not want to carry a USB drive or external hard drive. The Slate series is an excellent solution for backing up your music, photos, and documents, and its low power consumption won’t deplete the life of your notebook’s battery when you’re on the go.

    The Slate Series line comes in ample storage capacities of 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB, and is fully compatible with all ExpressCard standards. The integration of a mini-USB port allows the Slate Series to be connected externally from a hub when transferring data between your primary desktop and mobile system. The Slate Series comes backed by a 2-year warranty and OCZ’s industry leading technical support for the ultimate peace of mind.

    USB and ExpressCard compatible.

    But not so fast. Shame. If it was faster you could stick it in a spare PCcard slot for extra pagefile ZOMG.

    If you ask me, that hardly qualifies as "Ultra high performance".... especially given the ExpressCard's available bandwidth....

    Could be worth it if it's comparable price to USB sticks though.

    Amazon claims to carry them at $25/45/85, but while the product number and description match up, the pics are of the new Throttle series eSATA drives... Curiouser and curiouser, because at that price point they wouldn't be a bad buy at all.
