Elegantly drive celebrates the Chinese Year of the Snake.

Taipei, Taiwan – 17th April, 2013 PNY Technologies® (“PNY”) considered one of a worldwide leader in Memory and Flash products, joins the celebration of this year that is symbolic of healthy long life since ancient times in its unique way, by launching the beautifully crafted HP v229g limited edition golden USB pen drive. This one-of-a-kind flash drive sports rich and luxurious looks with its 24-Karat gold plated casing. The glossy, mirror-like surface has a beautiful ancient imagery of a snake and peanut, symbolizing a healthy long life, embossed on it rather than being printed, which gives the user a sense of opulence while handling the drive.

The drive features a seamless unibody design with a concealed USB plug at one end that remains protected from water and dust. The construction is not just elegant, but also rugged as it can easily endure the rigors of office usage. A lanyard hold at the far end of the drive can attach to a keychain, cell phone, purse, etc. The capless design has the advantage that now you don’t have to worry about losing the cap. The COB packaging helps achieve such a small size.

Other than looks, this drive is in every way as functional as our other drives, sporting storage capacity up to 32 GB, which is more than sufficient to share your digital documents, pictures, video clips, music files, and other data. The compact size and just 4.5 grams of weight make it ideal to carry in your pocket. While it features a USB 2.0 plug, it can easily work with older USB ports as well as newer USB 3.0 ports. Plug and play functionality lets you use the drive in Windows 2000, XP, Vista 7 and 8, and even on Mac OS 10.3 and above. This drive will be available in limited edition and will come with a 2-year limited warranty.
