    Kinda neat but I'm saving my money for the Crucial Looney Toons range. I need me some of that Daffy Duck heatsink goodness!

    my first reaction is to scoff like insp1re2600 and Repo Man.
    they did it better than me.

    but for those folks with exposed M.2 on their mobos, i'm o.k. with that. personally, in that case id rather have a machined metal heatsink (cuz to me it = cool).

    Agreed. If it was damascus steel or mokume game it would be very cool

    "With the exception of the Star Wars logo, the NVMe SSDs are the Firecuda 530, one of our favorite gaming SSDs. The 530s provide adequate performance but are more costly than comparable M.2 drives such as the WD Black series. That said, those units do not appear as fantastic as these. Beskar is a very durable metal that is utilized to create the armor of the Mandalorians, the planet Mandalore's warrior tribe. He is capable of resisting blaster shots and obstructing lightsabers. The Mandalorian obtains many beskar ingots after successfully satisfying a bounty. Mando then melts the beskar and forges it into some fancy-looking armor before departing to do some Star Wars-related work."

    Translation: These drives are crap, even by our own standards, but STAR WARS!!!!
