Attractive, but not very reliable.

Summary: I bought this flash drive because of its unique and attractive look at a reasonable price, and for a few months it worked well. Less than a year after purchase, my product just stopped working - I could not get it to be recognized by my Mac or other computers.
Summary: I bought mine in the fall 2013. Today, after one year and nine months, it suddenly died on me (it doesn't show up any more on any of my three Macs). Well, I guess I can still use it as as my LaCie RuggedKey-ring ... Michael S., Oslo
Extremely Angered, Agitated and Would NOT Recommend.

Summary: After finishing a large project and presenting it, my teacher was so impressed, he wanted a copy. Not to mention, I had 2 whole semesters of work on the USB. When going to send it over, my drive appeared corrupted, and could not read or write to the drive.
Summary: Cared for and handled very tenderly--this device has ceased to work for no apparent reason. There was no damaging event and I have just lost all the data from a year hand a half in a PhD program. Don't be the next victim to spend $60 to loose all of their data :(
Summary: This drive was serving its purpose well for a couple months. Without warning, everything was gone. The storage space seems to be used, but none of my files are there. I plugged it in to a few other computers with the same result.
Excerpt: This is a fantastic and rugged USB drive, built to withstand high temperatures. We were consistently losing regular USB drives to heat failure in a video kiosk (being run through a WDTV unit).
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Fast, High Capacity, Portable, Reliable
