Unique 550 USB Goat Is One Baaad Flash Drive That Won't Leave You Feeling Sheepish

Portable memory storage issues getting your goat? Better get the Unique 550 goat-shaped flash drive from SP! Designed in honor of 2015, the Year of the Goat (Ram, Sheep, whatever) on the Chinese horoscope, the Unique 550 is sure to store your data in the woolliest way.

Sure the Unique 550 is cute and all but so are dozens of flash drives that have been out there for years... just not Years of the Goat. And when the year's over don't think the Unique 550's gonna turn into a pumpkin or something – it'll keep on keepin' on like the Energizer Bunny because it's no novelty piece. In fact, SP backs the Unique 550 with a lifetime warranty.

USB drives have a made quantum leaps in capability in recent years and the Unique 550 packs as many of these exemplary features as can be squeezed into a vibration-proof, waterproof and dustproof goat-shaped elastic rubber casing. Whew!

But wait, there's more, like COB (chip-on-board) technology, SP Widget application software that provides seven major backups, and a 60-day trial version of NIS (Norton Internet Security). SP also provides Recuva File Recovery allowing quick & easy restoration of deleted files such as digital photos, music and videos.

The USB 2.0 (USB 1.1 compatible) Unique 550 flash drive comes in 8GB and 16GB versions, both of which are endearingly packaged in display boxes designed to look like miniature private pastures complete with white picket fences.
