This 16GB Mahjong USB Drive Costs $550?!

Mahjong is recognized as China's national game in the same way Mario is Japan's. The former of course is all about gambling, and undoubtedly has better re-playability value. Otherwise, you won't see the Chinese generations playing the same game since 500 BC. You may ask what Mahjong has to do with EverythingUSB? The answer being that a reader tipped us off to this one of a kind MahjongDisk - a prestigious handcrafted USB flash drive that is modeled on three Mahjong tiles stacked together.



When you are ready to drop $400, you can start customize the MahjongDisk with a wood material and drive capacity (8GB or 16GB SLC) of your choice. The Lan-Xue costs $100 more than the Li-Shui, and both materials are usually found in classic Chinese furniture. The drive itself is pretty decent, rated at 18MB/s read and 15MB/s - thanks to the onboard SLC memory module. Lastly and most importantly, you can choose what to engrave on the three Mohjon tiles. There are already presets with the most popular choice being FaFaFa ("Extremely lucky!") and ZhongZhongZhong ("Emerge successful from competitions"). Also keep in mind to keep the MahjongDisk away from water so keep it inside the leather case for protection whenever you can. This isn't exactly your virtually indestructible flash drive as you can imagine.

They're also $490 for an 8GB version and $550 for the 16GB version. If that's slightly extravagant, you can go for the darker wood, which knocks $100 off both those unit

These Mahjong drives are custom-engraved with three letters, such as the character on Mahjong pieces, your name or whatever dirty phrase you can come up with.

After all, if it?s out of your price range it?s really not going to matter if it does look perfect for you. Nobody likes those silly designer drives and their overly expensive prices that no common human being could ever afford.
