This review is from: LaCie Rugged Triple USB 3.0 500GB 2.5" Orange External Hard Drive
Loved the dual interfaces, which was indispensable. Seemed pretty rugged. After the failure I popped open the case and seemed well insulated against shock, with foam holders on each corner of the drive, and 7 pieces of foam protecting individual components on the board.
Only one con, but a huge one. After about a year the USB port started acting flaky. I'd have to push the cable in a second time. Then I started to have to apply pressure to one side of the cable to get it to work. Finally today it just stopped working completely. Thankfully I could pop the case off and get my data off.
