    Data lost. Hard failed in less than 2 years.

    It's supposed to be "rugged," but this hard drive started beeping (meaning serious failure, I later discovered) this week. It had been sitting on my table. I've reached out to their customer service for data recovery options, and will update this review if they provide meaningful suggestions for me to try.

    Amazing for Video Editing

    I use this drive to edit video on the go. While I wish it was a 7200 RPM drive, it handles 1080p edits and timeline edits quite well as is. I trust throwing this in my bag, whereas I am always worried about spinning disks. There's comforting in knowing how simple it is to replace the drive should i need to.

    Capacity was as advertised. Setup easy. My only complaint, and it has nothing directly to do with the hard drive, was that the Best Buy sales person told me that this unit had a Thunderbolt cable for my iMac Thunderbolt port. It did not, it had a USB 2.0 plug. This is not the manufacturers fault, but the salespersons fault.

    I carry everything on an external HD and I travel constantly. This is a must have for me to be operational. Hoping this last longer than my previous WD that started to make funny noises and sounded like an antique computer hardrive searching for files like a librarian going through a card catalog haha.

    Needed a new external hard drive for the new MacBook Pro with only USB-C ports. The adapters that I've been using on my USB3 drives have been causing crashes, so I decided to try a native USB-C drive. Works as expected. Just not many to choose from right now.

    This is the third LeCie that I have purchased and I have been satisfied with all of them. None of my previous LeCie units have malfunctioned. I need multiple external drives and these do the job.

    An easy to use platform that is highly mobile. More storage than you are likely to need. Travels well given it’s rugged construction. Definitely my go-to portable external hard drive.

    I travel extensively and I needed a rugged storage device that can stand up to the riggors of travel and survive in less than ideal environmental conditions. This totally fits the bill for me and I am very happy with it.

    Very fast when copying files- I have my entire iTunes account in it instead of my hard drive. It is slower when used as a time machine and I don't particularly like haviny the the Lacey drive divided into two separate areas.

    This is the external hard drive the Apple Store uses, so you know it's good! I love the rugged, compact design. The fact that it's orange is kinda handy in helping you find it in a pile.

    This drive was affordable and could could connect with multiple computers via the USB 3.1 connection. It has plenty of room for HD video storage while working on multiple projects.

    I didn't believe the hype. I didn't want to buy it and look like one of these hipsters. But the hype is real. This thing is fast. And its reliable. I trust it. 10/10 would reccomend

    Best you can buy, especially if using Mac. We use it for back up of our entire system and video content library. Too bad you can't find it at stores anymore.

    Good product for what I needed when I purchased it but would've rather spent the same amount for more storage 4tb was sold out at the time.

    This worked great for my MacBook. I kept using all my storage with pictures and this saved me from deleting everything.
