PNY releases LEGO-shaped flash drives

If you want to have a really interesting and original flash drive, then you should take a look at PNY’s latest such device – a LEGO-shaped flash drive that allows you to build blocks, given you have enough of them.

LEGO is an iconic brand that reaches those of all ages and transcends borders all across the globe,” said Myra Hines, senior product manager at PNY.  “Our partnership with the LEGO Group allows us to offer not only our millions of consumers another unique USB Flash Drive, but LEGO fans worldwide can now also add something new to their collection.  Featuring the traditional LEGO brick shape, this USB Flash Drive is a perfect combination of function and fun.”

“We are pleased to see the LEGO USB stick being launched by our partner PNY. PNY has proven already during the product development phase to be a strong partner ensuring that this iconic LEGO USB flash drive is offering a great LEGO experience for our fans,” says Andrea Ryder, Head of Licensing, The LEGO Group.

The new PNY product has been developed along with LEGO and comes with one more additional building block. The device is available in three colors – yellow, red and blue – and measures 30 x 15 x 10 mm (9 grams total weight). Unfortunately PNY has not published data transfer speeds but we do know that the drive supports USB 2.0 and offers capacities of 8 GB and 16 GB.

As to pricing there’s only the price of the more spacious 16 GB drive – it costs USD 10. Along with the purchase, customers get a 1-year warranty.
