the product arrived on time, but having placed it in my USB on the computer, it self installed. Now i can not use it as each time i try it prompts we with the request to insert a disc (!) How do you put a disc in a memeory stick

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!

I am a teacher, and find this a God-send. I was constantly loosing or breaking my old USB flash drives, and this solves all the problems.

The rubber case protects the drive from damage and it fits on my keyring/chain, although this makes it rather bulky to fit in a pocket. For people who need a sturdy and easily transportable USB drive, I would recommend. It is worth the money, as they are good quality.

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.

The usb stick by itself does not have anything special apart being 3.0 USB.

It does not have hardware encryption.

It only has rewritten opensource code of TrueCrypt, which is a leading encryption program, free for everybody to use. They just took it and did a graphic interface on a YEARS OLD VERSION. Therefor if you want to use the latest or any recent version of TrueCrypt you will not be able as it interferes with their software. And if you gonna use their software it's a bad decision, because in latest TrueCrypt versions many bugs which can cost you the damage of your files are fixed, and in their version are not.
Basically do your own research and you will see the differences, they use 3.x version of TrueCrypt, latest is 7-8.

So there is no encryption really, just a copy pasted old version of freeware encryption available for download to everybody, which is not healthy to use due to it's early version.

NO HARDWARE ENCRYPTION, don't be fooled people, this stick comes without hardware encryption, making it no safer than any regular stick which you can encrypt yourself by downloading the truecrypt software. There is no point to own a usb stick for security reasons if it will not have hardware encryption.

STICK HAS NO SURVIVAL SKILLS as advertised. Only the rubber does. But the rubber is just a piece of rubber with a hole in it.

So take the orange rubber away and all you have is a regular USB stick, only that it is 3.0 and is faster than 2.0. But this you can get for much less money.

Overall - it is misleading on every corner, it is nothing but a usb 3.0 stick, do not be fooled into buying if you're expecting something else.

Well made, feels good, works quickly.
However, I couldn't figure out how to set up the secure/encrypted area of the drive and so far have seemingly just walled off 2GB that I can't use. Good job it was a 32 in the first place!

Having not had to test the durability of the product i cannot vouch for that. However its an aesthetic piece of design, feels satisfying to use and i don't mind leaving in the bottom of my bag

Love how cool this looks, can't wait for taking it to Alaska. Looked at a few but the groovy orange was shouting to be bought, wish I had USB 3 before now

Failed after four months of light use, very disappointing considering the price. I have cheap plastic USB sticks that have lasted years!

Nice and bright, so you shouldn't ever misplace it - works like a dream. No nonsense. 16GB is ample for most projects. Indestructible!
