"so good...Best Yet...I don't know who wants to spend an extra $ to $ to get the MyBook version of this hard drive just because it comes with some backup software that nobody ever uses.The true test of a hard drive is longevity, which I won't know for a while, but so far Western Digital hard drives have been good to me and it is why I am switching back after some 2x bad luck with Seagate....One of the things I like about this External Hard Drive is that it has a Power On/Off button in the beck (a little hard to find these days as most just connect to USB and when they are plugged in they are on)."

"5 star...It Works...With video and RAW photos demanding so much storage space, it is essential to have a fast external storage to allow for strong computing power....A back up car, a back up girl, well you get the idea... those things are just not possible to back up in today's society- BUT you can afford to back up your data- as a matter of fact- YOU CAN NOT afford NOT to..."

"love it...Not bad!...Here's some good info though, if you are just after USB 3.0 driven storage and nothing else--you don't want to deal with WD's proprietary backup software providing some amount of cloud storage (which is a feature of the MyBook series), get the Elements edition of the drive, which I think sell a bit cheaper than the MyBooks or whatever else they call their drives that offer a cloud backup solution....I've only had this for about 2 weeks (so I can't speak to it's durability or reliability) but, it's fast and has freed up a ton of space on my internal HD and old 1 TB External HD."

B&H # LARMNU31 MFR # LAC301558

The LaCie Rugged Mini Portable Hard Drive provides 1TB of space for storing your data. In addition, the drive, as its name suggests, has a hard-boiled design that can stand up to the hazards of daily living. In fact, this drive can take a fall from up to 4' (non-operating mode) without harm to the drive or your information. The Rugged Mini is also pressure-resistant and rain-resistant as well. However, the familiar orange trim probably already told you that.

Being tough is one thing, but the Rugged Mini is also a true performer. The drive features a USB 3.0 interface - which is also USB 2.0 compliant - and a supports a maximum theoretical transfer rate of up to 5Gb/s. When it comes to rpm, the drive functions at 5400 rotations per minute. Beyond speed, the Rugged Mini has security on its agenda. The LaCie Private-Public software that comes built-into the drive ensures that you can keep private files private with the help of a password protected section of the drive.
