    Not happy at all !

    Posted .

    Not sure if it is this particular one that has issues, because I have another external from this same brand and it has served me for years satisfactorily without any problems, I just want a larger memory space hence my new purchase. It keeps disconnecting and reconnecting to my laptop, making it a nightmare to send any thing into it or vice versa. I would be returning it, immediately I return from my trip.

    Solid Hard Drive & Easy To Use.

    |
    Posted .

    The LaCie - Rugged Triple 301984 1 TB External Hard Drive is a snap to use. I plugged the hard drive in & downloaded the driver & it was ready to rock. I'm a professional camera operator so dumping footage from CF Cards to a Hard Drive is essential part of my day. I just drag & drop & my footage is transferred without a problem. The rugged design makes it easy to carry in my backpack. I'm not worried if it bounces around & breaking in my bag because it is well protected. With a TB of space it holds a lot of video files that I can use for several jobs. This hard drive is what everyone in the Television & Entertainment business uses.

    Performed great

    I used this as a daily backup solution for a large video job a few months back. I was moving quickly and had to have a good drive that I trusted to house about half a terabyte a day. She fit the trick. And I felt better knowing its reinforced for shock. I obviously never tested this and I didn't treat it any differently than any other drive I own but it seems well constructed I've never had a lacie product die on me yet (knock on wood)

    LaCie Rugged Drive... Alway good!

    Posted .

    Just as the name implies... a nice "Rugged" storge drive. This is the 5th one of these I have purchased for my business. Never had any problems with any of them. The are a bit pricey for the amount of storage but knowing that they will work flawless and take rough treatment makes them worth the price. Plus if you still need FireWire 800 ports... this is one of the few that Best Buy carries that still has it.

    Only one thing I found odd

    |
    Posted .

    I got this external HDD for my brother doing his vlogs and for his upcoming youtube series. The one thing that was interesting was that you had to install the software before using the HDD. I've used many external HDD's before and that was the first time I HAD to do that. Most of the time the software is there and I just reformat it so it can be used on both Mac and PC + not have a 4gb transfer limit (since most HD videos after rendering are 10+GBs. It was dropped once and still works incase you're wondering about the "Rugged"ness.

    Fast transfer and solid design

    I shoot in both JPEG and RAW formats on each shot I take with my cameras. That equates to one 23MB file and one 6MB file with each shot. After each session I download all the files onto a laptop and back up all the new shots on the Lacie before I post process my favorites. The transfer speed is good and this unit is durable. I've had portable mass-storage drives fail before. Ironically it's usually the board and not the drive that gives up first. This unit is built strong enough that I just took it with me through Belgium and France without any thought of babying it. It can take a beating. I'm sold.

    This is the one and only external hard drive that we use for each and every tv production I work on. MTV, Discovery, NatGeo, Bravo, HGTV. Reliable, durable and user friendly. We use them to shuttle footage between he edit bays and the camera teams in the field.

    great harddrive

    Posted .

    This is a great external harddrive. I keep purchasing these instead of external ssd's which are still a bit too expensive. I've had MANY external standard harddrives fail over the past few years- usually you knock them over one time or drop them even a few feet onto a carpeted floor and they stop working, but so far this model has been great!

    Works great - even after dropping

    I bought the Lacie rugged triple interface 1 TB drive to use on my Macbook Pro for Time Machine backups. It is compatible with time machine and has worked well for the first month. The first thing I did upon opening the packaging, was accidentally drop it on my hard wood floor. No dents and it backed up my computer fine. So far, I'm happy.

    Portable and Durable

    This external hard drive is a music industry standard and I see why. IF it happens to fall a reasonable distance from the floor, you're safe. It's highly visible so it's easy to find amongst all the other equipment that decorate studio desktops. I enjoy it a lot.

    Does what it suppose to

    Posted .

    It worked. Have't drop it yet though. I got this because my old hard drive took a dive off my table due to my youngest running. I lost everything, it went to format hard drive mode. Yikes!!! I like this because it was drop proof. Others gave it good reviews stating that they ship it in the mail. I also like the fact that you don't have to plug it into the wall like my old one. Which is why it took a dive. This just plugs into the computer.

    This is the only type of drive I buy for important content that needs to be mailed, shipped, brought back and forth between different locations, etc. They have never failed me.

    Expensive, but if you really need FireWire...

    |
    Posted .

    The base Rugged 1TB drive has USB 3, plenty fast enough for just about anything. This unit adds FireWire along with a higher price tag. FireWire drives can typically be daisy chained with other FireWire drives - but not other USB drives. Too bad FireWire will probably soon join VHS and 8-Track tapes in the graveyard of once useful things. Better to save your cash and get the 1TB rugged drive instead (or the 2TB rugged drive, if you can find one). On USB, both drives are essentially identical.

    This hard drive is useful and works great. I like how it is orange and stands out so I don't misplace it. It's also very durable. I dropped it a few times but luckily its padded on the sides the impact is reduced greatly.

    Quality durable portable hard drive

    |
    Posted .

    Unless you buy a solid state portable hard drive, carrying them around causes failure. Solid state drives are very expensive. This drive, the Lacie Rugged 1 TB unit is built for use, can be safely carried, is guaranteed against dropping (not recommended) and other accidents. I definitely recommend this unit for those who are taking their portable drive with them

    Attractive and Tough

    It is a good looking Hard Drive that I let bounce around in my backpack for the last month or so. It always seems to start up just fine. It is a little spendy as compared to other drives, but hasn't failed me.

    I mainly use it for graphic design formatted for Macs, so far it has been great... It's really fast when transferring large and small files, especially using programs like Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop... Well built and sturdy
