A couple of weeks ago I noticed unexpected traffic to an older post about another LaCie product, which is much less interesting these days. Out of curiosity I figured out that some folks were using “LaCie” and “anykey” in search of the LaCie iamakey.
Well, being the computer geek that I am, I couldn’t resist ordering my own. I purchased the LaCie iamakey v2 (8 GB) from Amazon.com for about $25. From a usage standpoint it works as well as any other USB flash drive that I’ve owned before. Transfer speeds seem good. Most importantly, the key is made of metal and does fit nicely on a key ring.
I think this will be a very useful (and hopefully reliable) device to own. I’ve already used YUMI to load up several rescue disc ISOs.
Updated 06/09/2012: I’ve been carrying the drive around on my key chain since I purchased it and it continues to function as expected.
Updated 07/18/2013: The key still works despite remaining on my key chain the entire time.
