Pros loved the metal casing and the form factor. most importantly, it could stay with my keys and never fall off, have the key-ring-connector break, etc.
Cons everything else. slow, and dies without warning.
Summary lost the cap pretty much immediately, not a big deal. the data transfer speeds are quite slow, almost down to USB 1.1 levels. most importantly, they die without warning, and without cause.
I owned one of these drives, and used it at work fairly regularly, but i wouldn't say excessively. my first one died after a few months, but i figured i had done something to it, spilled something on my keys, dropped it too many times, something. loved the metal and the key shape, so i bought another.
one day, i'm trying ot move some files from my laptop to my playstation and my laptop stops recognizing the drive. move it to another slot, try it in the playstation and another desktop, still nothing. the drive become a paperweight, while i was using it, with no apparent provocation.
needless to say, i will not be buying another Lacie product.
Pros none, zip, nada!
Cons your drive will fail within 18 months. look on the net a research before you buy. you'll see!
Summary Lacie produces horrible products. if you value your data and don't want to spent over $1k in recovery look elsewhere
Pros slick looking, compact , large capacity
Cons failed after a few months and LaCie refuses to honor the warranty without a proof of purchase or the original packaging
Summary Do NOT buy this product. It's ridiculous for a company to expect customers to keep the packaging or proof of purchase. The fact I have the drive is proof enough, isn't it? I never had this problem with any other flash drives.

Pros looks nice.
Cons speed, which is what file transfer is all about. this drive fails miserably
Pros GOOD LOOKS
Cons Looks like a good idea, but this is the worse flash drive you can buy. I bought 2 Cie in 3 months. They get damaged very easily. The first one peeled off in half after 3 months and the second one stop working all together without warning a week later. Not
Summary Very disappointing - get damaged - stop working without warning - not worth the risk
