Summary: I just bought this today and was excited to find out you could create an encrypted folder with password protection. I'm a hobbyist photographer so I really don't need to use this feature, but I thought it was neat. The only downside to it is downloading multiple softwares so your computer can even set it up, then having it take nearly 20 minutes to encrypt the folder for you to use.
Summary: This drive looked good and looked tough, and it worked fast and flawlessly for awhile. Then, both my PC and my Mac stopped recognizing it. My data on it was lost. The LaCie website is designed to making exercising rights under a warranty impossible (go ahead, just try to do it). The company won't stand behind it because it is not what it advertises itself to be. Save your money, and green a Lexar.
Summary: The usb key itself is high quality- rugged and reliable. The firmware that comes with the key is also high quality. But the whole thing is protected by a rubber sleeve that is only held in place by friction. The sleeve WILL come off repeatedly, and eventually you will lose it.
Excerpt: В целом девайс понравился, цена в России значительно более высокая, нежели за границей. Первая затерялась в глубинах Почты России, вторую заказал здесь, но через 3.5 месяца сначала перестала определяться на Win и определялась только на OS X и хардварных плеерах, а позже начала дико греться и через неделю померла совсем.
Pros: Яркий дизайн Водонепроницаемая, ударопрочная Высокая скорость записи\чтения
