          It's quite fast and my data feels very secure.
          The orange padding does not allow anything to happen to the usb key inside.

          I feel great knowing that the data I travel with is safe.

          Excellent Rugged Drive

          By Stephen

          Verified Reviewer

          Comments about LaCie 32GB RuggedKey USB 3.0 Flash Drive:

          I bought this RuggedKey as a boot drive for my laptop, but I've switched to using it for carting documents and media files to work and back. The speed is great. The drive comes with a 256-bit encryption software and it's tough, so I'm not too concerned about security of my data.

              Brilliant solution to a common problem, this drive is tough enough to stand up to anything you can put it through, from water and heat, to everyday bumps and bangs. It comes with a one-to-one storage space on Wuala, and it's very fast, too.

                    Comments about LaCie 32GB RuggedKey USB 3.0 Flash Drive:

                    The product is great in terms of its durability but there are a few things some people should know. Firstly, it's pretty expensive and the reason I bought it was for the speed it offerred via USB. Keep in mind that if you don't have a USB 3.0 post on your computer or laptop, the flashdrive will run at the same 480 MBpS that any cheaper flashdrive will run at. Secondly, the design is pretty bulky and the orange exterior easily attracts dirt. I still find it very reliable because I like Lacie as a company and am thoroughly happy with my purchase. I just wouldn't recommend it to people with about[$] to blow through.
