They call it the “High Capacity Luxury USB Drive”. Well, so far, the name fits the packaging. The box was fairly nice material and held closed with a small magnet. When you open the box you see that the drive comes with a nice little leather carrying case that has a clip for a belt loop or even a key chain. No where on the packaging does it say that there is a case included, but I guess when you buy a Ferrari, you almost expect the dealer to throw in a car cover or something. All contents were held in place securely so no damage should result from shipping.
A Closer Look
There are many drives on the market that can hold just as much as the Luxio, but most are quite a bit larger than the Luxio. Additionally large capacity and speed are not usually found in the same drive. We will be testing the Luxio to see how well it performs but it is worth noting that usually you sacrifice speed for the ability to store massive amounts of data. Over all, the drive is about three inches long, or just slightly larger than the average flash drive. Many other drives that have this capacity, such as the Corsair Voyager are much larger, up to 4 inches. This may not seem like a lot, but think about having to carry that around all the time.
Don’t be fooled by the wood like appearance, the drive is made out of plastic. Go ahead, look at your computer screen and say “Yeah, I know that Dan!!”, but when you get one and the first ten people see it, one or two of them will ask you if it’s real wood. The drive doesn’t feel cheap, but when you hold it, it is obvious that it is in fact plastic. The drive does seem to be durable, and the finish is fairly hard to scratch. I kept the drive in my pocket all week with my keys and so far there s no visible wear and tear.
