File Storage for those of us on the go! 1/3/2018 11:26:21 AM

Pros: Good file space
good orange rubber protective layer
Love the USB3 cord
Love the cross platform use (mostly PC, some Mac)

Cons: Sometimes the USB3 cord doesn't seat well in the LaCie port so I hear the computer sound saying it's seated, or it is disconnected

Overall Review: As someone downloading files from my new GoPro, my laptop's hard drive cannot handle the file sizes. It is wonderful to have a quick external drive with excellent file space for working on projects in real time as well as long-term back up storage/file management.

Actual Drive Is Low Quality 8/15/2015 10:29:03 AM

Pros: Drive enclosure is metal, with a plastic caddy and a pretty good SATA->USB interface. Speeds were reasonable. Rubber bumper is well made and seems like it would serve it's purpose.

Cons: I am giving this drive one star due to LaCie's choice of drive vendor, Seagate, in this case. Please read the "other thoughts" section for an explanation.

Overall Review: I purchased this drive in March of 2015 for my girlfriend, and it sat on her desk as served as storage for her videos and recorded music (she is a working musician). The drive worked without issue for several months, until this month (August 2015), when the drive refused to spin up. I opened the enclosure and found the Seagate drive model number (Drive is branded as Samsung, but has Seagte stickers on it), googled it and found that this model of drive has a very poor reputation among data recovery companies.

Since we did not expect the drive to fail within a year, she did not have complete backups of her work stored on the drive, and now have to both return the drive and pay for data recovery services (which are not cheap).

I have not contacted LaCie regarding this drive yet, however they are only obligated to replace the drive, not cover any data recovery).

I used to use Seagate drives for all my personal needs as well as my client needs, however as of late their reliability seems to be doing downhill. Your mileage may vary, but a big buyer beware here. The enclosure is on high-quality, but the drive contained within is not, in my opinion.

Buy LaCie ( not my real name or email) 6/21/2015 9:46:16 AM

Pros: Buy

Size is easy to transport !
Fits inside computer case with Velcro straps!

I had seagste drive that fell 3 feet and never turned on.
I haven't dropped this ... But supposed to be protected.

Usual transfer speeds for my files has been
( high of about 14 mb/second to a low of 5 )
That could be my computer and not the drive

Took all my 8gb, 16 GB ,32 senate Zip drives and put in one place on lacy
Took old DVD and CDs and copy to lacy

Dividing things into 128 GB folders
So can have second backup copy of LaCie drive on usb
Then I make second use copy
Eventually will buy a second Lacey and make additional backup of LaCie

Ok LaCie a little slower than I thought
But no problems so far

PS - SETUP for both Mac and PC
You move slider all the way
And it's so easy!
Works great with both my MacBook and my pc !

I bought and registered some 3 year data backup recovery plan as well

Having college papers and other stuff on lacy including music collection, articles , books ...
Well paying only $200 for LaCie plus recovery plan is huge Bargin!
Nice to throw out old small usb and Targums 320 dvd case

You likely don't need thunderbolt version
And key with this is peace of mind protection that if it drops from desk you won't lose your life or data !
Has paid for itself in terms of making downsizing easy .

If there was a fire , I'd grab the LaCie drive and leave everything else .


Cons: Pricey but totally worth it !
Your data is your life !
So even double the price worth it!

2 drives, so far, so good 11/9/2014 9:48:04 PM

Pros: They care about design. When you plug the USB cord into the drive, you notice that etched into the orange rubber casing are the words, "design by neil poulton." I think this is more than just a gimmick. The care that they put into the physical product really makes you take better care of it.

Cons: I have no complaints.

Overall Review: Got one for use with a Mac and one for a PC. Both are working fine.

Good drive but not really rugged 9/27/2014 7:56:55 AM

Pros: Bright orange rubber guard makes it easy to find. Small and easy to use.

Cons: USB cable is not up to par for a rugged device. Reliability is no better than most other drives that I have used. Drive failed when I needed it most causing lost productivity.

Overall Review: I gave this drive three eggs because it failed after less than 100 hours of actual usage. The actual age of the drive is three years but it has been handled with care and never subject to any condition that could be remotely considered rugged. I use this drive for backing up my laptop and to store software that is needed to restore my laptop while not in the office. I purchased this drive thinking that a rugged rated device that is treated gently should be reliable for years and in the most critical moments. As it turns out while I was in Russia recently and needed to access one of my virtual machine files the drive would not connect or give any indication of activity even after trying multiple cables and other PC's to rule out my laptop and cable as the source of failure. Ultimately this drive is no more reliable than any of the dozen others that I have used over the years. Would I buy it again? Most likely yes since it works as well as any other external drive and is competitively priced. I just wont trust it to work when I need it the most.

Great performance and rugged design 5/30/2014 9:46:33 AM

Pros: Very well built, durable, good transfer speeds with USB 3.0.

Cons: A choice of colors would be nice.

Overall Review: I use this as a travel drive for editing video. It's very solid, fast and has an excellent build quality. All my other older USB2 drives are sitting in at the bottom of my drawer now.
