A good product that falls short of greatness.

How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

If you absolutely need a USB 3.0-compatible Flash drive that can handle being dropped over 30 feet, and is water, dust and heat-resistant, the LaCie Rugged Key is worth considering. Otherwise, there are more affordable and flexible options available, including the Sandisk Extreme USB 3.0, which also comes in higher capacities than the Rugged Key, which tops out at 32GB.
