Let’s start with function: Those free USB drives you’ve picked up here and there don’t hold much data. If you’re lucky, you may have one that holds 1GB. And forget about transfer speed. Freebies aren’t built to be fast. But LaCie’s iamaKey drive is. Not only does the iamaKey drive come in capacities from 4GB to 32GB, it’s capable of speeds of up to 30 megabits/second (that’s speedy). Even better, the gold SIP connector is both scratch- and water-resistant for maximum durability. And to top it all off, each one includes 2 years of encrypted online storage for up to 4GB of data.
As great as the functionality is, it’s the form here that really brings the wow. LaCie won a coveted 2010 IDEA award from the Industrial Designers Society of America for creating one of the thinnest and most durable USB keys currently available. The nickel-plated iamaKey drive looks right at home on your keychain, ready whenever you need your data on the go. It’s the simplest, most elegant data storage solution we’ve ever seen.
