      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.)

      Purchased it and it went down on the 1st day.. maybe i just got a defective one but i didnt bother repurchasing or exchanging. The 3/5 stars is for the design, and rugged build. Almost certain if i got a replacement i would have been good. Just left a bad taste for a HD to fail in the 1st day though.

      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 purchased two of these hard drives on sale, and I am very happy with them. The speeds that I get using Thunderbolt are awesome; just as fast as my internal 72 RPM hard drives. I'm not a fan of the loud orange color, but it is growing on me.

      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.

      Fast disk, reliable, case could be batter and not have Thunderbolt 2 cable attached to it. If some cable needed to be attached I would chose the Thunderbolt 3 / USB-C one
