1 out of 5 eggsNot Great

Pros: Lots of storage, compact and rugged. Software is simple and easy to use.

Cons: Purchased so I could use with my Dell laptop's Firewire port. Sadly, after purchasing this item and a $25 Firewire cable, LaCie's tech support tells me it does not work with my Firewire port. This should be clear in the specs and the manual. It is never mentioned. The issue is that unless you use a 9-pin Firewire to 9-pin Firewire cable you are out of luck. I have a 4 PIN Firewire in my laptop as does most of the world. I've never even seen a 9-PIN Firewire on a laptop. This is an absurd requirement for a decide typically used to backup a laptop computer.

I feel very misled and feel that LeCie is not being upfront in their marketing.

Other Thoughts: Would not purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Portable Drive

Pros: This is a really simple to use and friendly little drive. It's very fast with USB 3.0, and it's big enough to hold the gazillion pictures I've got of our kids, vacations, etc. The drive doesn't need an external power supply, which is very convenient. And it's very portable thanks to its rugged design.

Cons: It'd be great if it existed in other colors.

Other Thoughts: Good stable performance, great quality

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Looking promising

Cons: Have now 3 LaCie hard drives laying around... the ports on all of them gave out just around the time the warranty expired... Should have learned my lesson after this happened to the 2nd drive (Rikiki), but instead had to add a 1TB Rugged to this graveyard.

1 out of 5 eggsDeteriorate just from lying on shelf

Pros: look rugged and feel as reliable device, but appearance are deceiving

Cons: I bought it as back up storage for all my photo archive. After 4 years of very careful handling, never dropped, only used for storage of photos, without deleting or overriding, it started loosing data, LaCie software requested reformat. I have secondary WD drive so I re-formatted LaCie and try to cope all back, but now it stop working at all. The drive was used to less than 30% capacity

Other Thoughts: do not trust

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Hard Drive

Pros: This is a great hard drive. Fast via Firewire 800. Dual ports for daisy chaining works great with my other firewire 800 drives.

Write Speeds via Firewire 800:
79.8 MB/s
Read Speeds
82.5 MB/s
Using Black Magic Design, Disk Speed Test app.
Test file size set to 5GB

Cons: non so far.

Other Thoughts: Faster the any other 2.5 inch FW800 drive I own.
I own a LaCie Rugged (301924) and have had issues with the FW800 port not keeping a good connection. I'm curious to see how this one holds up and if it will have the same problem.

5 out of 5 eggsWorkhorse Drive

Pros: This drive is reliable, easy to use, large capacity, and comes with IEEE/Firewire 800 connection. Perfect for use with an older MacBook Pro, Mac Pro, or iMac. Ideal for video field video storage for these systems.

Cons: At only 5400 RPM, video editing files stored on the drive is not ideal.

Other Thoughts: I use two LaCie Rugged drives and have had no problems. If you still use Mac products with IEEE 800 ports, this is a great portable drive.

I shoot HD video on SDHC cards and this drive with a MacBook Pro allows me to quickly and easily off load the contents of the card. The fast IEEE/Firewire 800 speed makes the process easy and quick, freeing up the SDHC card for reformatting and use. The 1TB size lets me store video from multiple shoots on one drive.

At only 5400 RPM it isn't ideal for video editing, but will do in a pinch.

I can then quickly off load the video files on my edit workstation at the office and get right to work.

I have also shipped the drive several times to other videographers for sharing large video files and have had no problems after shipping.

1 out of 5 eggsUnreliable product with misleading name

Pros: New Egg is a great company!

This particular product was purchased elsewhere. But the warning about the bad product is warranted.


Cons: The alleged rugged drive failed upon taking it out of the box. On the first upload files of on it, it immediately failed. LaCie would not do anything to replace it. Horrible customer service. Please do not waste your time, files or money.
