5 out of 5 eggs2 drives, so far, so good

This review is from: LaCie Rugged Mini 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive 301558 Orange

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.

Other Thoughts: Got one for use with a Mac and one for a PC. Both are working fine.

3 out of 5 eggsGood drive but not really rugged

This review is from: LaCie Rugged Mini 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive 301558 Orange

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.

Other Thoughts: 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.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat performance and rugged design

This review is from: LaCie Rugged Mini 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive 301558 Orange

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

Cons: A choice of colors would be nice.

Other Thoughts: 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.

4 out of 5 eggsRugged, Expensive, Odd

This review is from: LaCie Rugged Mini 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive 301558 Orange

Pros: Super Rugged, Self Powered, hard to lose

Cons: Emergency orange isn't my favorite color.

Still a spinning disk so the chance of surviving a drop is still very low.

Other Thoughts: The software on this is weird, its made for a mac power user which there are very few of.

It lets you partition HFS+/FAT and manage some other advanced details.

In my experience very few mac users know the technical terms to use the provided software.
