Excellent value for the money: serious protection for information that you value

Summary: It's really wonderful having a secure space for all of my work. What's particularly important is the fact that the drive portion is solid metal, which means you don't have to worry about your drive breaking off inside of the computer, which can happen with cheaper flash drives. It's an excellent value, especially because it can be carried on a key chain and not be damaged in the normal course of a day.
Summary: I bought this item refurbished so I can't give a fair review on one that is new. However, when I got this one it was working nicely for about 30 minutes of downloading but then when I later put the stick back into my computer, my computer couldn't read it. I tried it in another computer and it didn't work in my second computer either. I have sent it back for a refund. I hope I get it. I have bought other refurbished products like a Nikon camera and had no problems.
Summary: CrystalDiskMark 3.0.3 x64 benchmark (5x1GB seq): 203.3MB/s read 100.2MB/s write Rugged: The other, faster drives like the Sandisk Extreme Pro are made of plastic. On my keychain, this results in breakage. The LaCie is extremely rugged. Fast: If you cannot buy a plastic drive, this is the fastest one you can buy. I've looked into a number of others, and nothing comes close. The fact is that other metal drives are usually smaller, but it comes at a steep cost in speed.
Summary: I like LaCie USB flash drives. I have more than a bunch of them. The usb flash drive keys are great and rugged! I have never ever had issues with them... except for this "rugged" one. After a short period of use the cap broke off the back. I got this because it was "heavy duty" and extreme -- but that was not the case (pun intended). The cap separated from the actual flash drive.
