Looks like a Zippo lighter, stores 12 gigabytes


    US Modular is at it again with their uniquely-named Monstor Drive Line (no that’s not a typo). The micro-sized USB drives may look like little more than fashionable cigarette lighters, but the latest entry packs in an incredible 12GB of storage. The stainless steel shell is quite attractive, and it certainly helps that this device is “small enough to fit in the palm of a hand.” As expected, the new Monstor Drive throws down USB 2.0, low power consumption, and 1500G shock resistance, but unlike other similar devices, the Monstor doesn’t use flash memory, opting for a 4200rpm micro-HDD instead. Look for the 12GB drive to start shipping November 1st with an asking price of $129.
