    This is a 1 T storage device. I use it to back up my computer including all of my photos. There is enough room to store my whole computer contents. Huge storage at low cost. It is easy to use. Just plug in and go. The transfer rate is fast. It has a rubber casing around it to protect it from bumps. I have owned a smaller LaCie before.They are high quality and work perfectly. I highly commend this product

    I was looking for a fast and reliable portable drive to carry files when I travel. This one had a rugged design and seemed to be exactly what I was looking for, so I gave it a try. I've been using it for a few months now, without any issues. It's a plug-and-play device, very solid, fast and totally silent. I would definitely purchase another.

    Loose Cable Connection on Two Purchases!

    When the connection to my first one of these drives started failing at the drive port, I bought a second one (reviewed here). Brand new cable and drive. Same problem, resulting in some corrupted video files as the drive shut off unexpectedly. The only thing "Rugged" here was my loyalty to the Lacie brand. No longer.

    I don't really have any complaints with the hard drive. My problem is with myself. I thought I was buying one with a thunderbolt connection. I could have sworn I was. The only thing I can think was that this one was mixed in with the ones that were Thunderbolt. But I have kept it and it is working fine.

    I have been using this drive for almost a year now and I have no issues. I carry it often and it's very reliable and rugged! I would highly recommend these drives! They are fast enough to edit video on or just to use for basic media storage.

    Love this external drive, it has a protective border, it is good especially since I take it everywhere. When going on vacations, I back up the photos and videos since sometimes because of internet, uploading takes forever.

    I'm a photographer and have trusted the LaCie rugged drives for years. This hard drive is much smaller and compact than its predecessor. It's a great size and has a solid build. I expect this hard drive to last and last.

    I bought this external HDD to replace an old one I've been using for a few years. I opted for the more shock resistant model and so far so good. Haven't had any major drops, and the writing speeds are pretty good on this as well.

    Most drives from Lacie have Fire Wire and USB. Although the packaging doesn't indicate it had fire wire I was shocked when I opened it. Once I opened it Best Buy wouldn't take it back even though it was unused.

    Great way to store valuable data. This external hard drive that's exactly what it is intended to do. I've already carelessly dropped it twice and no damage to data. I would recommend this to anyone.

    Simple and works as advertised although I must admit to being a little confused by the pop up menu when you plug it in. It doesn't seem to have any function. In the 3 weeks I've had this, it if A-OK

    When I had to get a new computer, I needed to get my old files out and into the new one. LaCie external dive was easy to use and got the job done. And it was less that I had expected on cost.

    I purchased this as a field-capable/tough form of a portable HD for storing photo and video files, and it works great so far. Small bumps and jolts have not hurt its function.

    This little unit has outstanding capacity and loads quickly. I've trusted it to some very important data and have had no problems moving files on and off. Seems fairly durable as well.

    This item is smaller than how I image it was when I look at the web site. Easy to use, just plugin and setup. Even though it is a bit expensive, but seems to be in good quality.

    Lacie Rugged are very convenient drives. Never had a any problems. When you see them on sale grab them. They are reliable but priced a bit high.
