The Mimobot ‘The Joker’ flash drive isn’t your standard USB drive. Mimoco have a complete collection of designer USB drives boasting dozens of different iconic character designs. The drive itself comes in 2GB, 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB sizes and for the 2GB version it costs $17.95 (£11.50). There are also other designs, like Batman, Robin, The Flash, Darth Vader as well as Transformers, Hello Kitty and Emily the Strange.
Inside the awesomely designed box, you get; ‘The Joker’ USB flash drive and an information pamphlet. The box has all the relevant logos including the DC Comics and Batman logo. Also inside the tab on the top it show you how to say “mee-mō-bot” which is a nice touch.
The USB drive itself is beautiful. The design on it is just top notch, the detail is amazing. There is a light on the back that lights up when the drive is plugged in. The only downside is that the drive is upside down.
But that doesn’t matter because even the back of the flash-drive has the same level of detail into it too.
With the flash-drive, you also get some digital extras. The digital extras include: icons, wallpapers, screensavers and more. The file is a .zip and is easily extracted to reveal it’s contents. There is also a ReadMe document that guides you through the extracting process.
The speed that the device performed at was ok for a USB 2.o flash-drive. The speed averaged at about 19MB/s read and 5.5MB/s write.
It is a great flash-drive that includes lots of awesome digital extras. For $17.95, you are really paying for the design of the drive itself. The flash drives that Mimoco offer are more for the looks than the practicality of the drive. If you have the extra cash or are looking for an awesome collectors item or gift for that friend that loves comic books then this is the drive for you. Mimoco have various designs to suit anybody’s interets.
