Excerpt: Not all USB drives are created equally. Most are relegated to being generic tsotchkes handed out at conventions, but on the other hand you have the LaCie XtremKey ($50+) which offers industrial-grade data protection. With a pipe-shaped casing constructed of Zamac (an alloy of zinc, aluminum, magnesium, and copper) that’s brawny enough to laugh at 10 foot trucks, waterproofing down to 325 feet, 16′ drop shockproofing, weatherproofing (+390°F / -58°F), and enough...
Conclusion: It's hard to really stand from the crowd on the memory stick markets, but the XtremKey manages to do so. It does this with its sleek looks, very fast transfer speeds and ofcourse by being virtually indestructible. Even if you don't plan on going to the battle zone, having a very tough thumb drive may be a good idea. It's nice to know you'll never have to worry about the drive, no matter where you keep it.
Summary: While $79.99 is a high asking price for 16GB of USB storage--you can get other flash drives for about $35--the LaCie XtremKey greatly impressed us. Not only did it shrug off a variety of extreme conditions, but file transfer speeds are solid. The bonus cloud storage adds even more convenience. If you're willing to pay a premium for durability, the XtremKey is a worthwhile buy.
Conclusion: Keine Frage: Der LaCie XtremKey ist sehr gut verarbeitet und fühlt sich robust an. Allerdings ist es zweifelhaft ob einem wirklich ein 10 Tonnen Truck über den USB-Stick brettert. Oder warum sollte man “aus Versehen” seinen USB-Stick braten?
