A pattern shaped like a pig is engraved on one side of the casing as 2007 is the year of the pig according to the Chinese lunar calendar. Four Chinese characters “Jin Zhu Tian Fu” which represents “may the gold pig bring you good fortune” is engraved on the reverse side.
There are only 9,999 sets available with each set selling at 9,999 RMB (US $1,280) in Beijing, China. No word on the storage capacity of these drives though.
