Today, LaCie expands its industrial-strength storage line with the faster, stronger XtremKey USB 3.0. Designed for users who want to push the limits with their technology, the robust LaCie XtremKey can challenge the most severe conditions.

Resistant Design
The LaCie XtremKey received multiple awards for its innovative, rock-solid design. With wear-resistant screw threads and a rubber O-ring, the LaCie XtremKey is waterproof up to 200 meters. "The unique design is inspired by a waterproof screwing closure and thick metal casing," said product line manager Luc Pierart. "When the seam is sealed, the aerodynamic key can withstand extra ordinary circumstances."

Like its predecessor, the latest LaCie XtremKey features a protective cap made of thick ZAMAC metal alloy. Its strength can withstand severe shock, dizzying drops, and the relentless pressure of a 10-ton vehicle. It also survives bone chilling temperatures down to -30°C, and scorching heat up to 200°C.

Speed and Data Protection
The LaCie XtremKey's large capacity up to 64 GB and fast transfer speeds up to 230 MB/s allow users to transfer three HD movies or 9,200 photos in less than one minute. An adventure photographer can backup all of his photos in no time while on the road.

LaCie's Private/Public software comes standard on the key and provides impenetrable data protection. The AES 256-bit software encryption protects sensitive documents with password authentication, so even if the key is lost or stolen the files remain inaccessible.
