Excerpt: If you take your data with you on all of life's adventures, the LaCie RuggedKey 3.0 will appeal to you. Resistant to heat, cold, dust, water and drops from up to 100 meters, this is as close to indestructible as a USB flash drive can be. In addition to its durability, our TopTenREVIEWS Bronze Award-winning drive also transfers data quickly and safely.
Pros: The LaCie RuggedKey 3.0 is the most durable flash drive we reviewed, as it is heat, cold, dust and water-resistant.
Cons: The cap also functions as the drive's plastic casing, so if it gets lost, so does its durability.
Conclusion: The Rugged Key is a lot more expensive than an ordinary memory stick, but it could be a good investment for people who regularly work outdoors with their laptop and need extra protection for their important work files. Its encryption option also provides another layer of security in case the Rugged Key gets lost or stolen.
Pros: Physically rugged; password-protection for extra security
Cons: More expensive than a conventional memory stick
Excerpt: Cloud storage services such as Dropbox – and, of course, Apple ’s own iCloud – make it easy to store your important files online and gain access to them from multiple devices. However, there are times when you may not be within easy reach of a wifi network or Ethernet cable, and you need to fall back on a good old-fashioned hard disk or memory stick to back-up your files.
Recensione: LaCie RuggedKey 16GB USB 3.0, pendrive a prova di bomba
12 February 2013
Excerpt: La linea Rugged di LaCie si è arricchita di un altro interessante prodotto: la RuggedKey . Si tratta di una pendrive USB 3.0, disponibile nei tagli da 16GB e 32GB, caratterizzata da una incredibile robustezza. Oltre ad essere costruita in solido metallo è ben protetta dal classico bumper di color arancio che contraddistingue la linea rugged della casa francese, resistendo a cadute fino ad un'altezza di ben 100 mt, all'acqua ed a temperature estreme, sia calde che fredde.
