Review: Victorinox Flash Flight Alox 32GB drive

By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla

Every now and then, we see a product that is so well designed, so useful and so effective at what it does that it totally changes the game. The Victorinox Flash Flight Alox, which was recently launched in CES 2011 is incredibly small, extremely well built and surprisingly large in terms of capacity. We take it for a spin.

Sporting a total of 32GB, which is half the stock hard drive storage capacity of a base MacBook Air, yet this device is so small, thin and light (and easy to misplace) that we had to keep plugging it into our computers to check if there really was 32GB of storage in this drive.

 

From the outside, the Flash Flight Alox looks like a small Swiss knife, great for camping or travel when travel was, shall we say, less restrictive. Encased in colourful yet durable aluminum, one would never guess that it can house a neatly concealed USB drive.

Once you pop out the actual memory portion of the device and stick it in your USB port, you realize just how crazy thin and light this device is. You can also get the same sexy Aluminum body with 2, 4, 8 and 16 GB capacities and in a variety of colours.

For users who want the functionality of a Swiss knife plus the added storage, the Victorinox Flash and Victorinox Flash Atrix offer a multifunctional solution in hard plastic or light Aluminum bodies. The Victorinox drives also offer write protection features.

 

This tiny yet high capacity solution is ideal for users who have limited storage on their devices and need a place to store extra files or media. With 32GB you can probably store 64 two-hour movies or thousands of songs and photos. We like it for its tough yet lightweight build, attention to detail such as the cool LED light on the Victorinox logo and its ease of use.

Victorinox has found a great way to reinvent itself and merge its historical product design with a critical and useful tool for anyone who needs to constantly shuffle large amounts of data around in a small package.

Far out. Why stop at 32 though. Let's up the ante to 250 gigs... On the iPhone too.
