Summary: I bought this product for one purpose. To have a flash drive that fit into my key ring without looking like a drive and snapping easily. This achieves that by far! Every single person who sees it absolutely loves it right away and wan't one. And I always have a flash drive on me now! It has pretty decent speeds. The reason I chose this one over the other Lacie key was the read speeds.
Summary: This is my third LaCie key-style flash drive, and while I loved the first two I do not at all like this one. Data transfer is relatively quick, and I like the overall design, but good luck getting it to sit properly in the USB port. I often use a USB extension cable for my peripherals, and this drive's profile is either too flat or too narrow or something...
Summary: The CooKeys that I purchased seem to be working fine but were missing the supposed end case to protect the contact points. I contacted LACIE requesting replacement cases or tips and they referred me to the vendor. I have provided a 4 star rating in this case as the product itself is fine; the manufacturer LACIE is the issue for which I would rate their CUSTOMER SERVICE as a "zero.
Summary: Cool looking product but my warranty replacement key is now dead. If you need to rely on a flash drive, this is not it. It took some jumping through the hoops to convince LaCie to replace the first one under warranty so I am not sure it's worth trying again.
Volumes larger than 4GB are possible but are not documented in manual

Summary: Although Amazon's product description doesn't talk about this product's stated features much, the LaCie website provides the following summary of the product's functionality: "The Key to Total Security. * Encrypt all your data * Automatic backup * Lock your computer * Secure online backup" ( From [...] ) In various lacie.com pages, it re-states the ability to encrypt all your data.
Summary: I have been very happy with my LaCie Cookey USB drive to date. The unit is unobtrusive and because it is so slim it does not bulk up my key chain. Most other USB keys that I have had cannot stand up to the abuse that being on a key chain dishes out and so they break within a few weeks. But not this one! Its tough and performance-wise it is just as fast as any I've used. If you need a USB drive that you need to keep with you on the go then I recommend this one.
