Whilst it appears tough, it failed quicker than my last HDD

Mark Smith "m", Amazon

  • Summary: Bought this as I've had two toshiba's fail on me. This lacie hasn't lasted as long as they did. Very frustrating given the extra price and the fact that I don't believe that I'm tough on them. This lives either on my desk at home with my laptop or when on the move it lives in my Lowepro camera bag, a very well protected bag that doesn't get thrown around. Just have to keep trying to find a reliable brand but have to say I'm very disappointed.

Fast but POOR Firewire hardware longevity

R3d Bu11 "RB", Amazon

  • Summary: I was initially very happy with the LaCie but then the Firewire 800 port starting giving a lot of grief after just 2 months. Now incredibly difficult to even use the drive even with changing to other cables. Very poor hardware. Had to buy equivalent Iomega eGo drive now to replace this.

Used to think they were good but not any more

  • Summary: Have bought 3 of these drives and was very happy with there performance until the most recent purchase, the drive died after less than a month taking 3 days hard work with it, complained to lacie and the response from them follows. Thank you for contacting LaCie support. We're sorry to hear that your Rugged has failed as soon as it has.

CHinesisches Prunkstück

Richard Kaufmann "Technikfreak", Amazon

  • Summary: Was denkt sich wohl ein Hersteller dabei, wenn er so ein organgenes Gehäuse herstellt? Teuer, Leistung mittelmäßig, dafür aber äußerst schäbig. Fazit: Muss man nicht kaufen.
