Off-Key

(LaCie releases USB 3.0 SSD flash drive called FastKey)

So far, LaCie was predominantly known for its iamaKey and similar USB Keys. However, for those that don’t want to put up with the hassle of mixing up flash drives with house keys, there’s good news. Now, LaCie also offers some non-key designs. For instance, the ultra-small MosKeyto loves to stay put sucking bytes, while the all terrain XtremKey thrives on challenges in the great outdoors. Certainly, there are still similarities with LaCie’s previous models – like handsomeness and practicality. Plus the fact that the key may still be in the name…

When LaCie came out with the ingenious key shaped itsaKey, one might say that a small USB revolution was started. A key moment in flash drive history, so to speak. Demand and popularity became so high that 4 more LaCie USB Keys have been released since then – with new shapes, higher capacities and slimmer USB connectors. The cool thing is that you really can’t tell the difference between these and regular keys, so you may have to look twice when sitting in front of your computer and getting out your key bunch. If you don’t want to put up with that, LaCie also offers a couple of non-key designs – equally handsome and practical.

So imagine you empty your pockets in front of your friends or associates and none of the coins or keys are actually real.

C’est la vie with LaCie!
