An easy-to-use lifesaver

  • Excerpt: I picked this up after my Apple Time Capsule committed hari-kari on me. I needed a new back-up drive immediately and the LaCie Rugged has a good rep. It was immensely simple to set up and has functioned flawlessly in the month or so that I've had it. Excellent value for the money.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Manage, Easy To Set Up, Highly Compatible

Vulnerable cable connection

  • Excerpt: This is my third LaCie Rugged drive, and at some point they all developed problems, mainly with the cable connectors failing. I like the rubberised design, but they have other weak spots. Have also had problems with Lacies Quadra drives, so have decided they don't deserve any more of my money. Have to replace two Rugged drives now and decided to go for the the Buffalo Ministation Extreme, where the cable is attached to the enclosure, eliminating a weak spot.

Just what I needed

  • Excerpt: This is my 5th LaCie hard drive. I had only bought smaller ones before, so I needed a bigger one to back them up. It works perfectly. It's really fast and I can count on it working for me every time I plug it in.

Built for Travel

  • Excerpt: I have been using the LaCie Rugged drives for over 8 years now and my experience with them has been excellent. While LaCie buys its drives from others the enclosures it has designed is a real value-add. For photographers on the move, especially in rugged locations around the world, the extra layer of protection matters a lot. I recommend these only for the road warrior.
  • Pros: Protective Enclosure, Reliable
  • Cons: Expensive

It is Fast

  • Summary: Easy to get started and get going, once I re-formatted. Do not use installed programs - disk drive companies are not experts in this arena.
  • Pros: Speed
