LaCie catches ultra-small USB Flash drive bug

MosKeyto flies in

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Ordinary USB Flash drives too darn big for you? LaCie's new MosKeyto protrudes a mere 6mm from the USB port it's connected to.

Picture one of those micro Bluetooth adaptors and you've got the idea.

But while the drive is small, the price isn't. LaCie wants 20 quid for the 4GB MosKeyto, and £30 for the 8GB model. There's a 16GB version on the way too, but LaCie hasn't said yet how much that will cost.

As you can buy an 'ordinary' 4GB USB drive for a fiver, this seems excessive.

You're paying for the design of course, but also for miniaturisation. Less well-known brands offering their own 'nano' drives charge only a little less than LaCie: £15 for a 4GB drive, for example.

The MosKeyto is available right away. ®
