Summary: Overall, the $99.99 aluminum LaCie Rikiki drive feels durable and provides some useful extra software. We also like that it offers an online backup program. Still, its poor file transfer speeds drop it to the bottom of the pack. At this price, we prefer the Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex, which doesn't have as tough an enclosure, but provides much faster speeds and a strong suite of utilities
Pros: Made of durable aluminum, Handy online backup software, Lightweight
Cons: Slow transfer speeds, Took extra time to install software, Not rated for drop tests
Summary: The Rikiki still posts some pretty decent numbers despite of its 5400-rpm drive. It is for those who are looking for something wrapped up in a small package that is both sexy and speedy.
Pros: Great looks, All metal construction is very sturdy yet sheds heat passively, Decent performance, Small size, Comes with decent backup software, Uses ASMedia USB 3.0 SATA bridge chipset
Cons: USB 2.0 power capability issues with the included single port cable, Only 2 years of warranty, Security torx screws means that drive replacement will be difficult, No power On/Off switch for drive, Short USB 3.0 cable included
Summary: LaCie is well known for their stylish, durable, and flexible storage solutions. The 1TB LaCie Rikiki USB 3.0 301952 external hard drive is a great step-up from the 500GB model, and aside from being slightly thicker it performs equally well. Not only is it compatible with both Mac and Windows operating systems, but it is also backward-compatible with USB 2.0 in case your system does not yet support the newest specification.
Pros: Resistant- exclusive protective aluminum design, Compact- slim-line and only slightly thicker than 500GB model, Future-proof- features latest USB 3.0 specification for ultra-speeds, Support- backed by two-year warranty; 10GB online storage for one year
Cons: Pricey- costs relatively higher than other terabyte hard drives
Summary: LaCie's Rikiki mobile USB hard drive is an elegant storage solution that comes in three sizes up to 640GB. Its simple design exudes timeless style in a very affordable package. As long as you're not a stickler for fast transfer speeds, the LaCie Rikiki will make a worthwhile addition to your mobile arsenal.
Cons: No FireWire port; average transfer speeds; short USB cable.
Conclusion: Winning looks, speed and value make LaCie’s Rikiki the killer portable hard drive to beat. Although the corners can get a little bit stabby and the cord favors portability over convenience, both are small complaints for an otherwise stellar portable storage solution.
Pros: Incredibly small form factor, Sleek and durable anodized black finish, USB Speed Boost actually works, Speedy 30 MB/s transfer rates, Excellent value
Cons: Sharp corners tear at pockets, Short cord could be inconvenient
Excerpt: Rikiki is, we're told, colloquial French for tiny. The 250GB LaCie Rikiki drive is certainly small, measuring a scant 110x75x14mm. However, it's still a spindle-based backup drive, which means it isn't as light as it might be.
