Louis Vuitton USB Memory, 4GB = $500

damiergraphiteusbkey

Pricey French fashion brand Louis Vuitton has long held sway as the most popular status fashion accessory amongst Japanese fashionistas, with its purchase the key to unlocking the heart (and legs) of many an avaricious maiden.

Thus it will come as a relief to more technologically minded fashion followers to learn that USB memory is now available from the label, though at quite a price…

The “iconic” Louis Vuitton Damier Graphite is an other standard 4GB USB memory stick in a shiny casing, and is available now.

Since Japanese apparently love Louis Vuitton to the point of profligacy, they are offered a price of $515, whilst the rest of the world gets a merely exorbitant $450 pricetag… By comparison, a stick fit for a peon might be shy of $20.

    This is so a rip-off.

    The way I see it, even if I was the richest person in the world I wouldn't throw away my money on something useless. Some people don't like the "but people are starving over there" argument, but that's the way I feel about it. Do the creators of this thing really deserve it or are they just being unreasonable to make a load of unwarranted bucks? I'm sure there's something out there that looks similar or may even look better to you in some way that would be much more reasonably priced, and maybe even more functional and of better quality. People need to shop around and use their brains more, and take more things into consideration. I'd sooner give some money to those nice hand-made bead chain things that poor folk sell on the streets than some cold and overpriced shit like this if I want to stick something to my wallet.

    Well I do try and donate whenever I can and give when I go to church during the collection, but I work for my money now and I like stuff like this im a sucker for limited stuff like sneakers(mainly Nike SB), wallets, fits, shirts, pants, and whatever else catches my eye. Idk if the people that makes these are just trying to make some money but I have a passion for fashion, and i'll probably get this later on when it goes on sale its kinda the smarter thing to do LOL and I usually know when stuff goes on sale cuz my cousin used to work at the LV in SF and still has friends that work there so I can probably get it with the employee 60%-60% off end of the year discount, he told me that they have massive sales for employees then they send stuff back to Paris and burn them so they stay limited. But anyway I see all these peoples points on how expensive it is but if you think about its kind of like just buying a really expensive anime figure of a girl posing people will drop $500+ for a figure and i'll drop $500+ for a sneaker thats kind of the way I see it and I do try to give when I can so yeahhhh...

    Why do I find more proof every day that women are stupider than I think rather than proof of the contrary?

    Actually, replace "women" with "people"... but mostly women... actually "girls" is more accurate.

    But hey I love women (yeah 3D women), I just wish I didn't have to have this cynicism.

    I wonder which company is providing the flash drives for Louis Vuitton to jewel up. OCZ? Crucial? Corsair? SanDisk? Kingston? Hewlett Packard? I wonder which computer hardware company they consider to be the "Louis Vuitton" of the memory market.

    ........I'm pretty sure if you carve off the "Louis Vuitton Paris" part you could just get the thing for like 10 bucks....>.>.....or just get the case for like 10 bucks and carve "Louis Vuitton Paris" on it.

    USB memorys attract virus, troyans, malware and many more. $500 for a virus container of 4gb, what a idiot idea.

    Like everything else made by Louis Vitton, it's ugly, and opening a girl's legs would be the only reason I part with that much money for such crap (although I suspect there are some I could just as easily give the money to directly). I've much cooler looking USB sticks for the $20 price that is typical.

    Considering that USB drives are theft prone already (why, I'll never know), that thing is just asking to be stolen.

    You can get a microSDHC 4GB for 5-10USD. 16GB can go as low as 25USD. These things are the size of your fingertip btw. USB reader commonly included. Flash drives are about the same price.

    Aside from the ones I go out of my way to seek DVD rips for [read: Strike Witches, probably Saki], the ones I get are solid/moderate quality compressed to 50~60 MB files. Delicious.

    Yummy.

    Flash drives, etc.: $-per-GB.
    XHDs: GB-per-$.

    On the other hand, sticks are USB-powered and don't need an external source. They also fit in a pocket. Convenience comes at a price, perhaps.
