Product Description

Product Description

The LaCie RuggedKey, design by Neil Poulton, is built to withstand accidental drops from heights far above what you'd encounter on your way to the office. Its rubber construction is 100m drop-resistant. That means ultimate protection for your key - and your data - for all life's little stumbles. Life’s an adventure – and disaster can strike at any turn. With the RuggedKey, the last thing you need to worry about is your data. Heat and cold resistance protect you in the most extreme of climates – whether you’re trekking across a scorching desert or braving the frozen tundra. Furthermore, it’s IP-54 certified for resistance to damage from dust and water projection. The RuggedKey is the most portable storage in the LaCie Rugged family yet, and the best on-the-go protection for the real world. Bigger files need better speed. With the RuggedKey's USB 3.0 interface, you get speeds up to 150MB/s for blazing fast file transfers. USB 3.0 represents an enormous speed increase from USB 2.0, and best of all, since it's backward compatible with USB 2.0, there's never any worry about connectivity. Hardware rugged, and software secure – the RuggedKey key protects your data from the inside with AES 256-bit encryption. Easily create a password-protected area on the key to securely store all of your confidential information. Ultra-secure AES 256-bit encryption technology means the RuggedKey is secure from the inside out. LaCie makes it easy to integrate secure cloud storage from Wuala into the RuggedKey, making storing and sharing your files, photos, or videos easier than ever. You get a year of one-to-one storage ratio with Wuala (your 16GB RuggedKey will come with 16GB of Wuala Secure Cloud Storage, for example), allowing you to back up your key's contents or double your storage capacity. Even access your files on the go with the Wuala Mobile App [link to Wuala app].

Product Description

Keep your data secure with the RuggedKey USB flash drive from LaCie. It's resistant to falls of up to 100 metres and sudden temperature changes, and is waterproof and dust proof too - so you can take it with you everywhere you go safe in the knowledge that your data won't be damaged.

The RuggedKey has transfer rates of up to 150 MB/sec thanks to its USB 3.0 interface, and comes complete with AEC 256 encryption software to protect data files from prying eyes!

5.0 out of 5 stars Blazingly Fast ! 27 Nov 2012
By Nathan
Size Name:16GB
I purchased this for use with a mid 2012 MacBook Pro equipped with USB 3.0, and for occasional use on a PC with USB 2.0 ports. The drive works on both machines and is fast, but on the MacBook Pro it's blazingly fast ! Creating a USB boot drive for OS-X Mountain Lion takes about twenty minutes on a USB 2.0 drive, but with this LaCie Rugged Key it took just under three minutes ! The product is very well constructed, the brushed aluminum is finished to a high standard, and the device fits into the orange rubber case securely. I was not keen on the design at first, I prefer the simple rectangular shaped drives, but seeing it in person I really like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best flash drive 22 Nov 2012
Size Name:32GB|Verified Purchase
The best flash drive I have ever bought and the largest capacity. The orange holder is very helpful in keeping track of the device and the shape of the key helps to fit it in the USB slot the right way up.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unreliable - AVOID 19 Feb 2014
Size Name:32GB|Verified Purchase
I was pleased with this purchase at first as it was a fast and worked well with my PC and MacBook. However, unfortunately like many other people have, I became a victim of a device failure after only a few months and the stick data could not be recovered. Luckily I had the stick backed up on Livedrive but trying to retrieve the data from a client site over 3G is not an experience I would like to repeat.

Lacie have obviously got a fundamental reliability issue with this product (just look how many other people are having failures) which is made worse by the fact that this USB drive is sold at a premium due to it being 'ruggedised'. This was my first Lacie purchase but I will definitely steer clear of them in the future. I suggest you do likewise if you value your data.

DO NOT PURCHASE THIS! THEY WILL STOP WORKING AT SOME POINT. I have purchased 2 of these and not even a month later they both stopped working. Couldn't recover my files. I asked Lacie company to send me a replacement and they did but they stopped working as well

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid - Lacie Rugged Key 9000146 16gb usb 3.00 13 Dec 2013
By lara
Size Name:16GB|Verified Purchase
This rugged USB 16gb is a very solid key. I have used it daily for a long time and it has never failed, I have dropped it a few times and it bounces, its still going strong. The shape for some may be difficult as it turns at the top and if your ports are close as they usually are you cannot fit 2 keys in side by side. However, a great purchase and particularly as a gift for someone it is cute, reliable and fun.

1.0 out of 5 stars 4 FAILED out of 10 6 Dec 2013
Size Name:16GB
This is a product review and not one of Amazon.

I got 10 of these for a project, 4 have had controller failures.

Stay as far away as possible if you want to retain your data.

By Crock
Size Name:16GB
Do not buy this product. It broke twice within days of purchasing it!! I'm usually a fan of Lacie products which is why I was so surprised by the lack of quality in this one!
