LaCie USB keys
LaCie has introduced several new storage products designed by 5.5 Designers, including the iamaKey, itsaKey and PassKey. The iamaKey and itsaKey are both key-shaped USB flash drives, featuring metal construction and capacities up to 8GB. The gold-plated connectors are claimed to be water- and scratch-resistant, with transfer rates of up to 30MB per second via USB 2.0.
The PassKey lacks integrated flash storage but provides a microSD/HC card reader.
The iamaKey is now available, with prices of $18 for the 4GB model and $28 for the 8GB variant, while the itsaKey carries a price of $15 with 4GB of flash memory, or $24 with 8GB of storage. The PassKey can be purchased for $10.
