Summary: Overall, the $99.99 aluminum LaCie Rikiki drive feels durable and provides some useful extra software. We also like that it offers an online backup program. Still, its poor file transfer speeds drop it to the bottom of the pack. At this price, we prefer the Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex, which doesn't have as tough an enclosure, but provides much faster speeds and a strong suite of utilities
Pros: Made of durable aluminum, Handy online backup software, Lightweight
Cons: Slow transfer speeds, Took extra time to install software, Not rated for drop tests
Summary: The Rikiki still posts some pretty decent numbers despite of its 5400-rpm drive. It is for those who are looking for something wrapped up in a small package that is both sexy and speedy.
Pros: Great looks, All metal construction is very sturdy yet sheds heat passively, Decent performance, Small size, Comes with decent backup software, Uses ASMedia USB 3.0 SATA bridge chipset
Cons: USB 2.0 power capability issues with the included single port cable, Only 2 years of warranty, Security torx screws means that drive replacement will be difficult, No power On/Off switch for drive, Short USB 3.0 cable included
