Silicon Power Ready for Holidays with Festive Flash Drives

By - Source: Silicon Power Email | B 2 comments

Here's a great gadget for that special geek in your life who needs a little bit more "space".

September is just about over, and before you know it, you'll be beating up kids for their candy on Halloween night, then stuffing your face full of turkey just weeks after that. During all that excitement, you'll need to figure out what kind of holiday gift to purchase for that special someone before time runs out.

Silicon Power has a solution for the geek at heart, perfect for that faceless nerd sitting on the other side of Skype or that geeky ghoul dazed and drooling in front of a brightly lit LCD screen parked in a dark (dungeon) office downstairs.

Enter the LuxMini 720 and Touch 830, two festive sticks of flash dressed up in red, white and silver. They're limited edition, so that designation itself should perk up any collector of gadgets. Even more, the Touch 830 model sports Chip on Board (COB) packing technology, supposedly making it waterproof, vibration proof and dust proof.

"LuxMini 720 limited edition is built-up in an exquisite metallic case with silky touch," the comp[any said. "The combination of holiday red and joyful festival patterns genuinely gives out a sense of warmth in this winter. It’s the ideal gift choice for your special someone."

The Touch 830 features a stainless steel casing in titanium black, and is carved with "exquisite" seasonal icons, creating a sense of Northern European holiday spirits, the company said. Sounds like these two sticks are quite exquisite.

Silicon Power is offering both drives in 8 GB and 16 GB capacities. Every SP flash drive product guarantees a lifetime warranty as well as SP Widget application software which provides seven major back up and security tools.

On the pricing front, these holiday editions didn't appear on Amazon and Newegg, but the non-decorative LuxMini 720 16 GB model costs $9.99 on Newegg, and the Touch 830 16 GB stick is roughly the same price. So far it's unknown if Silicon Power plans to charge extra for the Limited Edition versions, so stay tuned.

Regardless, here is a list of features and the tech specs of each:
