    Juggling Hard Drives- rugged helps

    When I was looking for smaller fast portables for taking my creative life on the road as I juggle data from drive to drive. I found rugged to be a necessary spec. With three of these I am able to complete my act. The supple orange rubber helps me see them then they are in the air and allows them to absorb impact for those (rare) occasions where I miss one. I constantly rotate my drives and keep three always as redundant backups when I’m the road for special projects. These are fast. And with my Mac thunderbolt 3/USBc port I can work in real time with my edits while I juggle my hard drives.

    Specifications wrong

    Posted

    The specifications listed on Best Buy's website state that the drive is compatible with Apple MacOS X 10.5 or later, but the packaging says 10.9 or later. Therefore, the setup software will not launch on my computer. I'm sure the drive itself works fine, but I will have to return it. (I have my reasons for not updating my OS. Will probably set up a dual-boot soon.)

    I cannot believe that 2TB of memory now comes on this size of an external drive. As they continue to make them smaller, this will be a game changer. I am a bit concerned that the connector is hardwired into the drive, but I love the protective case, and its color, (I still dig orange things!) and the size of the external HD!

    I've owned Lacie drives before, and love them. But I had never purchased the "higher" end ones before this one. I absolutely love this drive, fast, flexible, and very easy to use with my latest MacOS. So glad I returned the cheap drive I bought initially and went with this one.

    This drive is a excellent choice for my Mac. Works great for Time Machine backus. Very quiet and transfer speed is excellent. I love the rubber case as that it gives more protection while transporting. Would highly recommend.

    Wow! It's so orange and portable, just like most portable hard drives, well, without the orange part, but hey that's what makes it unique. You should buy it.

    This hard drive was more expensive than the usb external drives, but on my older MacBook pro, the thunderbolt port was much faster than the usb.
