Review - Peace LifeBytes 8GB USB Drive from Dane-Elec ~ Storage Made Stylish


Dane-ElecThe back-to-school shopping season is almost upon us, which has me reflecting back to the days of my own school supply needs when I was a kid.  Things sure have changed since then.  Big Chief writing tablets have been replaced by handwriting apps and husky pencils by tablet styluses.

Although the requirements for today's student might look a little different, one thing remains the same...flashy and cool always rule!  No one wants the hum-drum basic supplies, when they can have neat colors and characters instead.  That's where Dane-Elec comes in.  Their brand new collection of USB Drives are just perfect for our computer-savvy students.  Keep reading to learn more about the hottest portable storage devices for this back-to-school season.

I reviewed the Peace LifeBytes 8GB USB Drive from Dane-Elec which retails for $13.49.

Dane-Elec LifeBytes 8GB USB Drive

Go back to school in style with Dane-Elec's new USB drives for kids, teens and young adults, featuring fun colors and designs. Dane-Elec's ColorBytes, ShareBytes and LifeBytes are available in three designs each, specific to the age groups they are designed for: ColorBytes for kids age 9 to 12 years old; ShareBytes for teens 13 to 17 years old; and LifeBytes for young adults.

"School success and style can go hand-in-hand with our new USB drives," said Sherry Chapman, Dane-Elec director of marketing. "Featuring unique designs that appeal to each age group, they combine functionality and fun at a price that parents will love. We are thrilled to bring the drives to retail and especially excited to launch our new ShareBytes Facebook page and website for back-to-school."


Featuring fun, bright, engaging colors, ColorBytes are small in size to accommodate smaller, less nimble fingers of kids 9 through 12 years old. A built-in clip keeps each USB drive close at hand on a backpack or clothing. Or, the drive can be easily attached to a lanyard using the opening at the top of the drive. ColorBytes are available in value packs carrying two 4 gigabyte (GB) drives with a Lil' Monsters, Circa-Dot or Ink Splat design.

Dane-Elec ShareBytes are designed for sharing, with an interlocking 'hugs' design that gives them instant personality. Teens can give one to a friend or keep both for themselves. Featuring double-sided graphics in three unique designs -- X-Ray, Monsters, and Angel & Devil -- teens can transport their files in style! The USB drives can be easily carried to and from school in a pocket, backpack, or attached to a lanyard. ShareBytes are available in value packs of two 4GB drives.

LIFEBYTES for Young Adults

The ultra-functional LifeBytes USB drives will catch the eyes of any college student. Bold graphics in three designs -- Peace, Tribal, and Tattoo -- bring these drives to life. A compact form with a sleek sliding USB lets them fit easily into pockets or backpacks. As with the other two drives, a lanyard may be easily attached. LifeBytes are available in single 8GB packs.

Dane-Elec's ColorBytes, ShareBytes and LifeBytes are available now at national retailers including Target, OfficeMax, Staples and The Source for only $12.99 each.  They also feature a five-year warranty from Dane-Elec.
