Summary: I was looking for a keyring USB drive to carry with me, and LaCie USB worked really well. It looks and is claimed to be rugged - i have yet to test this out thoroughly but knowing that it is, means it can take a beating (and even a dip in the water) without being damaged. I also like the private lock storage it has when you download the drivers. You can setup an encrypted vault in the key up to 4GB, enough for sensitive documents with a strong password.
Summary: Anyone who buys a key USB knows that it's a little bit of a joke, but actually can be put on a key ring for safe keeping and to have it with you at all times. I have given out some of these in the work place for people who constantly chronically need USB keys. They do work well but this particular model is a bit bigger than I prefer and also a tiny bit thicker than other models I've have.
Summary: This product is good. It's stylish and I get comments on it all the time. It's great to have it with you at all times. The fact that it's so small and has keys hanging off it makes it want to pull down on the connection sometimes when you have it connected into the computer, but generally it works fine. I've had for about a year now and have had no problems with it.
Summary: I saw them with my professor back in college. Now after affording its expensive price =D I bought them, and they look and feel nice, and the weight is convenient. I was hoping for USB 3, but it's not offered, hence losing a star. The uncovered copper stripes makes me slightly worried that they might get scratched or something, but that's when the brand value makes you trust them. My professor used them for years for god sake!
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: I really can't stand caring flash/thumb drives around. But then again I hate keys too. I just don't like the bulk in my pockets, but there are to many times when I need a flash drive when I don't have Dropbox or some cloud equivalent available. This LeCie is thin, and stays so out of my way, it adds just one key to my bare keyring for a total of 5 keys plus 16 GB of storage. YEAH!
Summary: I'm a fan of the LaCie flash drives in general, having now bought two. This one has presented me with a small annoyance, which is that it doesn't rest comfortably in the USB port on the back of my iMac. I can jiggle it and occasionally it will seat properly, but overall, it hasn't found any kind of comfort zone. And since that's my principal machine, I'd say it's kind of a huge drawback.
Summary: It's a very cool USB key to have on a keychain, and very durable in that regard, BUT BE WARNED THIS WILL NOT WORK ON AN XBOX 360 AS A MEMORY CARD. It gives some kind of error, even after reformatting the key to various filesystems.
Summary: I love my LaCie CooKey 32 GB flash drive. It's a very generous amount of space. It looks fantastic, and disappears when on a key chain. Better yet, it shouldn't get damaged easily. BUT... one of the main reasons I spent the extra money for the 32 GB edition, was so I could use it in place of a memory card on my Xbox 360. But when I stick this in, I only get a message saying that this flash drive isn't supported!
