Lacie’s New Fastkey!

For the user on the go, the Lacie FastKey provides speed, durability, reliability and ease of mind with any type of transferable data.

Lacie has always been known for their superior backup and backup solutions and their brand new FastKey is no exception. Lacie’s Fastkey utilizes the superior SSD USB 3.0 which can deliver speeds up to 260MB/s. In other words, the Fastkey is able to transfer 1,000 mp3 files from your PC to the flash drive in less than 60 seconds.

The reasoning behind FastKey’s incredible speed is that the Fastkey uses USB 3.0 technology in place of the standard USB 2.0, meaning the user has a flash drive that can write small files up to 100 times faster than a USB 2.0 drive.


Lacie’s tested and proven metal design for their drives have always been a reliance for users worried about their flash drives longevity and the FastKey continues Lacie’s excellence in dependability and durability. Lacie has combined the Solid State Flash Technology with the drive’s exterior aluminum casing which protects the FastKey’s flash drive capacity which ranges from 30GB to 120GB, but do not bulk the user’s pocket as the FastKey drives do not exceed 26cm in length.

Data Protection:

To protect the users valuable information, the FastKey uses AES 256-bit encryption. This software protects all or some of the data within the flash drive, whatever the user may want to specifically encrypt. After the encryption process, the data is only accessible after entering the correct user set password. In addition to the this source of protection for your data, Lacie provides an additional 4GB of secure online storage which is provided by Wuala.


The Lacie FastKey is available in 30GB, 60GB and 120GB and information regarding each specific drive can be found here.
