This review is from: LACIE Rugged SAFE 500GB 2.5" USB 2.0 / Firewire800 Secure All–Terrain External Hard Drive Model 301491
Pros: This drive has some nice features. I went from the standard Safe Drive to this one because of the rugged features. I'm always on the move and working between home, work, on the road, and multiple computers. I've never had problems but thought I've been pushing my luck for the last few years without incident so I thought it was time to upgrade to the rugged version, just in case...
Cons: Unbelievably SLOOOOOOW, and I do mean REALLY REALLY slow. I've tried it configured several ways now. Both NTFS and Fat32, and on Windows 7 vs. Windows XP. Always the same extremely SLOW results. On my old drive, an excel spreadsheet will open immediately, on this drive, it can take up to a minute to open.
Other Thoughts: To Lacie - definately a swing and miss on this drive. Everyting else I've bought from Lacie has been top knotch, but not this drive.
