Mimobots designer flash drives review and giveaway!


My newest and best-est buddy just arrived in the mail. His name is Mr. Phantom X and he is a total cutey!

Help, I've been de-"cap"-itated!

Mr. Phantom X (a creation of Miami based artists FriendsWithYou) is one of the newest designer flash drives to emerge from Mimoco's collaborative efforts with some of the most talented up and coming artists. Collaborations with Sanrio/Hello Kitty, Star Wars, Tokidoki, Domo Kun and Gary Baseman are tiny sampling of the many artists and companies that Mimoco has worked with.

These fun, colorful flash drives not only look great but are amazingly durable and long lasting (I've had some of mine for years and years and never had a single problem). Whenever I've used my Mimobots in the past I've received so many compliments on how cute they are... I've also caught more than just a few wandering googly heart filled eyes starring at my bots!

It's awesome that these flash drives are aesthetically pleasing, but from a practical standpoint the bright, fun colors and the unique shape are actually a huge help in ensuring that you don't forget to remove your flash drive from the computer when you step away. I used to use a plain, black flash drive in the past for school and almost left it behind many a time... I've never had this problem with my Mimobots.

After reattaching his cap Mr. Phantom X and his minions Wicket and Monster (sold out) prepare for... world domination. Muahahaha!

These flash drives would make an awesome gift for any student (recommended for ages 13 and up), anyone that works with computers, or just anyone that needs to save files or transfer files from one computer to another. There also seems to be a Mimobot for everyone! Here are some of my top picks:

-------------------------------------

Mimoco was generous enough to offer one of my readers a 4 GB flash drive (up to a $39.95 value) of their choice from mimoco.com! Please make sure that your choice comes in a 4 GB size and that it is in stock.

*To enter all you need to do is visit the Mimobots website and tell me which 4 GB flash drive you would love to have if you won!

For one extra entry each you can:

* Follow this blog via Google Friend Connect
* Subscribe to my blog via RSS or email (if subscribing by email your email must be confirmed, also list your email here)
* Post this giveaway in your blog and leave a link to your post
* Tweet about the giveaway and leave a link to your tweet (you may tweet once per day)
*Follow Mimobots on Twitter
*Follow Mimobots on Facebook

Please leave a separate comment for each entry! Also make sure to leave your email address in one of your comments or have your email address visible in your profile.

This giveaway will end on 4/4/10 at 11:59 PM PST. Open to US readers only. Good luck!

Giveaway winner: Kim
