    Great for travel & easy set up

    I recently traveled to Egypt and needed a way to store all my photos and videos. Internet is hit or miss and I'm using a 45mp camera that has huge files so the cloud is not an option. The drive is basically plug and play. It shows up on your computer just like any other drive or phone would and you can create your own folder names and directories. It has an autosync feature but I was not interested in that. This has a USB C input and it comes with a high quality USB C to USB C cable. I believe it had a regular USB A cable also. But I'm not 100% sure. So if you need that please check the box. Which is a huge plus as they are expensive. The unit is the most rugged of any drive I looked at and has a relatively hard rubber exterior safety wrap (not sure what to call it) it's not removable. It's orange so it's easy to find and I found the speed to be 100% acceptable. If you want faster you can get the SSD version but there is a huge difference in cost. For me, this worked great. So I bought 2. BTW, it seems like the box said something about Thunderbolt. If so, it just means it works with the same plug. No disc drive can truly have Thunderbolt speeds.

    Tough drive

    I’ve used LaCie Rugged drives for work for years. When it came time to get my wife a working drive to pair with her new MacBook Pro (that has a SSD that is on the small side) I went with what I knew would stand up to the rigors of being stuffed in a bag and pulled out over and over. USB C was also a must to connect to the new computer, but the drive also came with a USB A so getting content onto the drive from her old computer was a snap and no clunky adapter needed.

    Good External Storage

    Best durable proof storage, this is my second one. I had the first generation one, but since I upgraded my MacBook Pro to the new one with all USB-C I did not want to deal with carrying a dongle and saw this came with a USB-C cord I instantly pulled the trigger on buying this. Well needed if you need more storage and have a MacBook Pro 2017 model. Especially since I’m a photographer and take a ton of photos I need the additional space for my Raw files as they add up pretty quickly.

    I purchased this to store my music sample library(mostly for Kontakt) and it is quite a bit better than my previous one (a scavenged hard drive from my erstwhile computer). For the most part it does its job, although I would be remiss not to mention the unimpressive transfer and disk read speeds (which caused kontakt to drop samples rather often). In any case, as a normal person external storage drive, it works very well so far.

    Lacie is the go to brand for a hard drive for me. Not only do they make a hard drive that's fast, that can take a few drops and water, but they also have a warranty that has data recovery included. Why would you want all your precious data on another drive that once it goes down it's down for good?

    So far it’s a great external hard drive. If your looking for something durable and on the go or just need more storage on the computer at home. This LaCie external hd is great. I’ve read some other reviews of other having problems but so far everything is going great. Both windows and Mac.

    Great compact device! Got as a portable backup for all family pictures and videos. Formatted easy for both apple and pc, and works great. Only issue is that we had to go out and buy a usb-micro to USB adapter to run it. Love the size and extra protection around it!

    I purchased this hard drive because of the good recommendations it always had, but after 6 months of working perfectly, the entire drive went corrupt overnight, lost a TB worth of work with no option to erase or recover the data. Now I'm out of my money and data!

    After having my previous hard drive die on me, I did my research to try and find the best bang for my buck - I found nothing but good reviews on this brand and decided to try it out for myself. I ended up purchasing 2 and I love how reliable they are!

    I bought this durable external hard drive because my kids knocked over my regular one. This gives me peace of mind that my pictures and documents will be safe. Also, when copying pictures and videos over it was lightening fast, took less than an hour for about 3000. 2 thumbs up!

    This is my 1st LaCie drive. My previous WD drives broke, costing me A LOT of money for data recovery services. These drives come with 3 years of data recovery insurance. That is a HUGE selling point for me.

    I love that this external hard drive doesn't immediately try to load manufacturer "required" software before it even is available to be used as a drive. It also allows you to choose your type of computer to set up optimization for this drive.

    I bought this drive to be a Time Machine backup for my MacBook Pro but when I connected it to the laptop it only registered as 50 meg so I returned it and purchased a different brand.

    This is a great product if you're on the go and need to expand your laptop's storage. The rugged rubber casement protects it from impact due to falls or other sudden impacts. Compatible with Macbooks, and Windows-based laptops.

    This was my first LaCie product and I have to say I have been very happy so far. I liked that it was in a rubber enclosure and it also came with a USB-C to USB-C cable as well as a USB-C to USB 3.0

    Easy to set up and use. This can be formatted for how much space you want to allot for multi computers. Well worth the price to keep your info and photos safe.

    Great travel drive! 2TB of storage and love the shock absorbers built in for protection. Great drive for a teenager to carry in backpack. Be sure and look for price matching which saved us quite a bit on this.

    Bought it as a back up for a mac I purchased. Sometimes the mac doesnt see it and I need to restart the cpu. But once it's available it works well.
