3 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive, however

This review is from: LaCie Rugged Mini 500GB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive 301556

Pros: The drive is great.

Cons: The cable is sub standard for a rugged drive. The connection is easy to break just treating the drive like a rugged drive. Over all, I would say the drive is not really meant for rugged operation pretty much because of this. The enclosure's rubberized probably makes it a bit shock proof but don't take it mountain climbing.

Other Thoughts: I'd buy it again but would like the cable a bit more sturdy where it connects to the drive.

2 out of 5 eggsBad Sectors

This review is from: LaCie Rugged Mini 500GB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive 301556

Pros: Drive worked great for a while - until recently I would have given it 5 eggs.

Cons: Three months into use, it started to develop bad sectors, eventually corrupting the virtual machine I was running off of it and causing me to have to rebuild a new VM from scratch. I recovered the drive and tried to keep using it, hoping it was a fluke, then more file corruption occurred about a week later.

Other Thoughts: Drive sits, unmoved, attached via USB3 to my desktop computer most of the time. It's quiet and reasonably fast for spinning disks. If it weren't for the bad sectors...
