Not durable at all...

rwa100, Amazon
25 January 2014
  • Summary: I bought this to backup all of the files on my computer. It fits nicely on a keyring, but it is not made to last. This drive consists of two thin stamped metal pieces pressed together.

Not cool

Michael Lifson, Amazon
16 December 2013
  • Summary: I got it because I liked the looks of it. That hasn't changed - it looks great - but it has issues. 1) It doesn't fit snugly into the USB port - it is kind of loose, which is annoying.

the USB wire leads are exposed = bad news

David A Hills, Amazon
20 November 2013
  • 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?

It was great for a while

Jeff, Amazon
28 December 2012
  • Summary: This key held up for about 7 months until suddenly nothing could be read. I'm not too sure what happened, but I remember everything I did that day. Nothing I did was out of the ordinary.

Strong and sleek design, poor performance

Ryan, Amazon
17 January 2012
  • 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.

Edward, Amazon

  • 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.

stopped being recognized after 6 months

D. Levine, Amazon
7 September 2011
  • 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

cashley73, Amazon
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.

Clever design but terrible reliability

John Walthall, Amazon
7 March 2011
  • 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!

Really neat idea

Matthew Evans, Amazon
2 November 2010
  • 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.
