          Comments about LaCie 16GB RuggedKey USB 3.0 Flash Drive:

          This is a fantastic and rugged USB drive, built to withstand high temperatures. We were consistently losing regular USB drives to heat failure in a video kiosk (being run through a WDTV unit). Now with the RuggedKey, it has been operating great for an extended period of time and is cool to the touch when I inspect it. Highly recommend for heavy duty use.

                  Comments about LaCie 16GB RuggedKey USB 3.0 Flash Drive:

                  This is a quality made flash drive from Lacie. The metal body of the drive is very solid, and the orange cover adds a lot of protection. I plugged it into my Mac, and did a quick format to dump off all the software I didn't need, and started loading media onto the drive. The drive comes preloaded with security software if you want to encrypt the flash drive, I didn't need it, so I did a format before using. The flash drive is pricy compared to other drives of the same capacity, I guess what you are paying for is the armored shell. Another winner from B&H.

                      This Lacie Flash Drive is extremely fast! It helps me whenever i'm in a short time situation for presenting some work to clients. It's also super safe, the silicon case wont fall off and you don't have to worry about garbage falling into your flash. Only Problem I have with this is that I wish I could have bought a bigger drive for the same price, but over all, a great piece of equipment.

                        The RuggedKey's case can be easily taken off and on, revealing the actual thumbdrive. About the size of a regular house key with the USB male port at one end. The RuggedKey's port supports USB 3.0 and also works with USB 2.0 and the legacy original USB ports.
