I t The speed of this flash drive is very very fast, 10 GB within 1 - 2 mins. However the amount of heat it produced is enormous!! I tried to transfer a 25 GB Blue Ray movie on to it. It says that it ll only takes 5 mins. Then after 2 mins, after it transfer around 10 GB, it flash drive is overheating so it stop automatically then ejected itself 1 min later. I can almost fry egg on it LOOOL. I tested it several times, it seems that u have to keep the file size smaller than 10 GB or it won't be able to finish the job without overheating

    I have lost data on a thumb drive before purely from age and dust getting into the device. After buying the Rugged Key I hope all I have lost data on a thumb drive before purely from age and dust getting into the device. After buying the Rugged Key I hope all of those experiences are gone. The device has a rubber casing all around, protecting it from humidity, dust and other elements. I also like to be able to carry this on my keychain, so I'm never searching for it.

It easily attaches to my keys and the rubber encasing means that I don't have to worry about the drive getting scratched or worse, losing data if the drive is dropped. I even like its secondary use as a keyring, much nicer than a generic USB drive anyway.

It holds all of my work documents, and there's plenty of room for music and photos. The USB 3.0 transfer speeds are just amazing.. I've been using this USB key for a bit over a year now, and NOT ONE PROBLEM. It is a nice, sturdy, quality piece of hardware.

    For 6 weeks, my Rugged Key was a 5-star performer. I would have written a glowing review like many others have done here. I loved For 6 weeks, my Rugged Key was a 5-star performer. I would have written a glowing review like many others have done here. I loved it.

    Then it simply failed. It self-dismounted off my desktop and never came back. Dead. Bricked. Now, like a substantial number of folks who had the same experience, I'm giving it zero stars if the site will let me.

    Never had a USB drive fail. Ever. Never had any LaCie product (all excellent) fail before.

    Word of advice about this USB drive, that I never thought would be necessary: BACK IT UP. Read the 1-star reviews before you plunk your cash down.

    If you do buy, SAVE THE PACKAGING, because that's WHERE THE SERIAL NUMBER IS. And LaCie support has the nerve to ask for it. I didn't save mine. Who keeps packaging for a USB drive? And how would you know which drive goes which packaging if you buy more than one, as I did?

    Long story short, after hemming and hawing they sent me a RECONDITIONED unit. So I'll ask for my money back.

    Wish me luck. Hope yours is better.
