Summary: looks good, but the copper leads are exposed! who designed that? if I put these on my actual keychain, the lead will be so corroded over time I won't be able to access my data, so what's the point?
Summary: I had this guy for a few days before returning it. Continuous write: ~5 MB/s. Continuous read: ~20 MB/s. Pros: Strong, durable & and pretty neat looking Cons: Windows 7 takes FOREVER for the drive to appear (up to 1 minute), even if you've inserted before.
Summary: LaCie buries their Supported OS requirements for their encryption software: [...]. It wasn't until after I purchased the key and talked to customer service that they simply stated they don't support 64 bit.
Summary: Beware: stopped being recognized by multiple computers after 6 months. And the tiny plastic protector for the metal interface will easily get lost. Great idea, poorly implemented. Disappointed as I've had a LaCie external drive for over 6 years with no problems at all.
LaCie iamakey v2 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive, Drawbacks
1 April 2011
Summary: On the whole I am NOT satisfied with the key flash drive. For the cost of the key, in my opinion, it has a major design flaw, an open tip connector. For about $50.00 for a 16 Gig key, I would like to have a much better design.
Summary: Oh what a disappointment this cleverly designed little device has been! Aside from the usual problem that all flash-drives have with the cap vanishing within days (exacerbated by the tiny flimsiness of this one) the drive itself is not reliable!
Summary: This flash drive is really cool. It fits on a key chain and more or less looks like just another key. It's about the size of a car key, maybe just a little bigger. It comes with a protective cover for the connector end, but it's pretty inconvenient to keep it on there.
