LaCie 500GB Rugged Mini External Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model LAC301556 Orange
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Drive worked great for a while - until recently I would have given it 5 eggs.

Cons: Three months into use, it started to develop bad sectors, eventually corrupting the virtual machine I was running off of it and causing me to have to rebuild a new VM from scratch. I recovered the drive and tried to keep using it, hoping it was a fluke, then more file corruption occurred about a week later.

Other Thoughts: Drive sits, unmoved, attached via USB3 to my desktop computer most of the time. It's quiet and reasonably fast for spinning disks. If it weren't for the bad sectors...
