"never buy! dies after few months"0.5 starson by bullhead242
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.
