Xiaomi can be considered a “jack of all trades” when it comes to its product portfolio. The company not only focus on smartphones, computers and the usual set of technology. It has some rather unusual pieces of hardware and equipment. Thankfully, the company follows its philosophy of offering quality at a low cost in most of these products. The newest addition to Xiaomi’s portfolio is a U-Disk thumb drive that retails for a very affordable 79 Yuan (~$11) price tag.
The U-Disk thumb drive boasts a design that is very similar to what we can see in the market. In other words, it has a compact, metal body, with a lanyard attached to the frame to prevent it from slipping off your hand. This lanyard features a soft texture and can be directly hung on the key or bag. Moreover, the lanyard helps when you need to pull off the U-Disk from the USB port.
The body of the U-Disk features Zinc alloy material, with the electroplating coating process. This also gives the wear-resistant and rust-resistant properties and also helps in heat dissipation. The U-Disk features UDP integrated technology to prevent damage from external environments such as water splashes and dust. Interesting enough, Xiaomi also equipped it with shockproof, pressure resistance, high-temperature resistance, and several other protection to keep your data safe.
Worth noting that it has 64GB of storage and follows USB 3.0 standard. The maximum reading speed of the U-Disk is up to 124MB/s. You’ll need just 30 seconds to transfer a movie or file with 3GB size.
