LaCie's MosKeyto Has a Tiny Memory

It’s cute, it’s tiny … it’s the LaCie MosKeyto, one of the most compact USB flash drives I’ve ever seen!  Available in 4, 8 and 16GB (the one capacity which isn’t showing on the site quite yet), the MosKeyto is an inexpensive backup flash drive that you can stick in a laptop’s USB port and forget about.

I like that they stuck the keyring on the side with the memory, not the side which serves as a cap. 😉

The stealthy MosKeyto becomes nearly invisible when plugged into your computer, and can even travel with the computer in a protective sleeve or briefcase – just plug it, and forget it. Because it lies flush against your device, there is no risk of damage to the port, computer or key if the drive is knocked or bumped. Additionally, if it’s in your laptop, you won’t lose it.

It looks a lot like the tiny Bluetooth dongles that were popular for a while, doesn’t it?

LaCie MosKeyto measures less than 20mm and weighs 10 grams, making it one of the smallest USB keys on the market. Offering capacities up to 16GB, you’ll be pleasantly amazed at how many bytes you can get from such a tiny MosKeyto.

Outfitted in sleek black plastic, the MosKeyto is also equipped with a durable nylon strap to attach to an accessible key ring and a cap to protect its USB connector – so you will never have to worry that its tiny form factor will disappear in the depths of your backpack or briefcase.

“While the MosKeyto resembles to a bug, with its small size and big bytes, this USB key is far from annoying,” said Alexis Kobassian, Accessories Product Manager, LaCie. “It provides high capacities in a low-profile connector, allowing you to insert it into your notebook and forget it. And with its low cost/gigabyte price, you can forget about that, too.”

Additionally, LaCie has integrated an extra 4GB secure online storage from Wuala into the MosKeyto, making storage and sharing more convenient than ever.

LaCie Moskeyto offers instant connectivity via USB 2.0 to Windows®, Mac® and Linux platforms.

I've had a fascination with all types of gadgets and gizmos since I was a child, beginning with the toy robot that my grandmother gave my brother - which I promptly "relieved him of" in 1973. I'm a self-professed gadget magpie. I can't tell you how everything works, but I'm known world-wide for using a product until I have a full understanding of what it does, what its limitations are, and if it excels in any given area — or not.
