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.

Clever design but terrible reliability

John Walthall, Amazon
27 June 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! I've had two fail within a year, fortunately I keep backups! My first drive came from Walmart and lasted about nine months, LaCie shipped me a new one which lasted three.

Lacie iamakey flash drive

Shirley E. Barbour, Amazon
25 May 2010
  • Summary: I ordered this flash drive because it was a good looking product, but looks aren't everything. I only had the flash drive for a very short time before the plastic protective cover came off and was lost forever. I would NOT recommend this product, I am afraid to use it on my keychain without the protective cover. More thought should have gone into this product.

Looks nice, sturdy, but horrible write speeds.

Rodolfo Q. Z "roqz", Amazon
15 April 2010
  • Summary: I have the 8GB iamakey, I keep it in a keyring with 6 other common door lock keys and a Leatherman Micra, it is very well built, looks great, and everybody loves it for the looks. And because to the usage and environment, I can warrant that it is sturdy and with rock solid mechanics. However, this thing is SLOW... VERY, ABSURDLY AND INCREDIBLE SLOW.

Two failures

djames, Amazon
19 February 2010
  • Summary: So I've gone through two of these...they randomly quit working. Amazon won't replace it the second time and, as others have commented, lacie refuses to replace them as well. Avoid this company/brand.

Cool but... Dead in 6 months - LaCie won't honor warranty

NJP (Ohio), Amazon
9 December 2009
  • Summary: While this drive is very cool (albeit slow as everyone else has pointed out), it's completely worthless when it dies within 6 months (purchased June 18). I've seen several other posts here of the same issue: just decides one day to never mount again. And even though there is a 2-year warranty, LaCie doesn't want to honor it because I can't provide a serial number. For what it's worth, there is NO serial number on the key itself.

Unique design, poor transfer speed

Serena Witzke, Amazon
1 June 2009
  • Summary: The key itself is adorable. Incredibly thin, sleek, and really neat to look at. Unfortunately, the positives end with aesthetics. The transfer speed is DREADFUL. 2 hours and 18 minutes to transfer 3.68 GB. I have a Kingston Data Traveler (4GB) that can do the same transfer in less than 20 minutes. I'm a sucker for cute, so I'll keep it. But I'll be holding onto my Kingston for large file transfers. Bottom line: Cute. SLOW.

  • Summary: Séduit par le concept "look comme une clé" et la fiabilité des produits LaCie, je me suis offert - parce qu'à ce prix je n'achète pas je m'offre - une clé iamakey. Dès le début les vitesses d'écriture et lecture m'ont semblé aberrantes de lenteur. J'ai mis cela sur la faute de mon PC.
