    Great for travel & easy set up

    |
    Posted .

    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.

    So far so good. I shoot a lot of video and it's great to have such large storage space in such a compact package and such a low price. I have a Mac and I noticed there is a more expensive "thunderbolt 3 version, but I don't know that that is necessary. I don't see a difference. It's fast, too.

    Reliability matters

    Posted .

    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?

    I really like this drive overall. I was a little disappointed that the drive didn’t have the built in wires like some of the other models LaCie offers, but that can also be a good thing, because you have a choice of connections, and it’s easily replaceable if the wire gets bad from a lot of use. It has fast read speeds, and has as good of write speeds as can be Serpentes from bus powered, mobile external spinning drive. You could easily watch hi def movies off this or even edit video off of it. For anyone who is interested, I reviewed it and compared it to a Sandusky cruiser in this video: https://youtu.be/eS-LJ-YW_go

    This usb c drive performs very well and is a good value from a performance/cost perspective. I found that in my use, as back up for my Mac Book Air 2020, the standard usb c charging cable provides better throughput than the cable supplied with the LaCie unit.

    After I broke my last portable hard drive by dropping it, it was time to get something a little more sturdy. I have dropped this one several times, and keeps working with no problem. Since you never know when your going to drop your portable hard drive, I would definitely recommend this LaCie Rugged. You can never be too careful.

    I'm a photographer and this external hard does the trick. The orange rubber guard really helps the drive from taking a tough fall. The usb-c compatibility speeds this drive up. I have it on my Surface Book 2 and it's fast.

    I have been using LaCie drives for years. The ruggedized exterior give me the sense that they can travel well. It travels with me wherever I go. I can back up my camera memory cards for a safe backup.

    I purchased this external hard drive after using a sub par brand that failed on me. LaCie has not disappointed! Fast to connect, fast to transfer files, and holds up to the occasional drop in the floor.

    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.

    I really don't need the rugged case for this PHD, but I did need at least 2TB and a USB-C to USB-C connection for speed. It works well and seems to be a bit faster than my previous PHD.
