This review is from: LaCie Rugged Mini 500GB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive 301556 Orange
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.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bought this to replace a drive in my Dell, Intel based computer. I'm and IT analyste for the past 20+ years. I had to uninstall Intel Rapid Storage Technology drivers after installing. Problem was that by cloning the drive to a larger hard drive, the program found fault with sector sizes, etc.,
Some software errored out such as Microsoft's Live Mail calender issues, Daylight Savings Time, Downloading from Microsofts's Internet Explorer. Also Win7 Indexing stopped working. By doing the reinstall of the Intel, the problems were resolved.
Cons: Only the configuration issue on Intel based system such as my Dell.READ FULL REVIEW
