LaCie LAC9000633 overview

  • 1Description

The LaCie Rugged Mini Portable Hard Drive provides 4TB 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.

General Features

The Smallest Member of the Rugged Family
With its iconic orange design and secure form factor, the Rugged has been one of our most popular hard drives. With the Rugged Mini, we've shrunk the Rugged, and added tons of new features, making it a solid investment for on-the-go data transport
Maximum Reliability
The LaCie Rugged Mini Hard Disk shares features with our popular Rugged Hard Disk, like shock resistance, drop resistance, and a rubber sleeve for added protection. But with the Rugged Mini, we've gone a step further: it's also rain-resistant, and pressure-resistant-you can drive over it with a 1-ton car, and it still works! Its small size makes it perfect to take with you wherever you go, and its Rugged exterior provides protection against accidental drops, shock, or pressure
The Speed of USB 3.0
With the Rugged Mini, you've got the speed of USB 3.0, and full backward compatibility with USB 2.0, meaning that you can use it on almost any computer. You can transfer a 700MB video file in less than 7 seconds with USB 3.0, compared to 25 seconds with USB 2.0. Additionally, you can use the LaCie Mac USB 3.0 Driver to improve data transfer speed on your Mac (up to a 30% performance increase compared to FireWire 800)
LaCie Private-Public
The Rugged Mini doesn't just keep your data safe from external forces-it also protects against intrusion. With secure password protection software built-in, it's easy to make sure that your files are secure and protected, no matter where you go. You can even use access your password-protected files using any computer, ensuring complete data mobility-and complete data safety

Easy setup and automatic worry-free backup for both PC and Mac computers
Password Protection

    LaCie LAC9000633 reviews

    4TB Rugged Mini Portable Hard Drive is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 43.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommended This fast and tough little drive was recommended to me by a video production veteran. Boy was he right. A fast drive for video editing and motion graphics, when I'm on the road cutting or scooping up big gobs of media, this is a very dependable LaCie product. I particularly like the ergonomic design which buffers the drive from accidental impact, has a nifty little way to tuck away your connecting wires and protect inputs. It might seem like a small thing but you can't underestimate how handy it is to have a drive that doesn't slip on surfaces and you can grab and tote easily. Having an orange casing also is like a careful, I have media sign wrapped around it. All in all an excellent product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from SO necessary for a portable digital life. Lacie drives are all around a fantastic product. I purchased this drive specifically because of the rubber casing around it, which has served me very well since this drive travels with me a LOT. Using this drive for footage and project storage, I'm giving a solid 4 stars because of the durability, solid connections from drive to computer (so, basically the cable), and it's reliability. I baby it, of course, because it's not solid state. And because of that, the speed at which I edit the footage suffers somewhat because of the drive speed itself - 5400 rpms. I really need an affordable drive like this to be 7200 rpms, and thus, a one star subtraction. It's too bad there aren't half-stars. I'd give it a 4.5 if I could.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Orange is my new black I been user of Western Digital external Passport series drives for almost 20 years until last one went brick after falling from table on carpeted floor. I decided I need something that could withstand minor falls like that. After 2 weeks of almost daily usage I can tell that I'm very satisfied with this drive performance. Both read and write speeds are more than adequate. I don't see any difference in Lightroom performance when I'm working on pictures located on this drive compared to my internal laptop drive. Love it's design too - rubberized on peripheral for shock absorption in case of drops and aluminum core for heat dispersion.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 stars! The best portable hard drive ever. Slim, great quality, fast and reliable. Ive purchased different brands and La Cie was the only one that never let me down.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable, durable Used LaCie for years, then bought several G-Drives, started having issues, went back to LaCie. I own five from 500GB size to 8TB. Great design, speed, durability.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent large and portable storage! I use this as my Lightroom catalogue and main image storage drive. I start my workflow by loading images to my MacBook Pro 15 inch. I keep them there while I organize and edit. When I'm done I offload to the LaCie drive to free up space. The new 4tb drive replaced my 2tb LaCie rugged mini. I ran out of space. I have nearly 100,000 images. Access speed to images on the drive is fast, but I wouldn't want to do all my work off the drive. Exporting images from the drive through Lightroom works great! 460 images (1.43gb) took about 25 minutes. Easy to transport. This drive is slightly larger and heavier than the 2tb. The only thing I don't like about the LaCie is the detachable USB3 cable. Don't transport the drive with the cable inserted. It can bend the connector inside the drive housing. Really like the way they incorporated the thunderbolt cable on that version of the drive, wish they would do the same for the USB DRIVE. The thunderbolt version costs too much IMO, so I'll deal with USB.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great hardware, worthless software and utilities I love the small rugged style. I was looking to replace my 2tb WD My Passport drive w/Namd hard shell case and I needed something fairly rugged because this is the hard drive I carry everywhere with me. The drive itself is comparably small to what Seagate and WD offer. Drive seems plenty fast for my needs and I've had no issues so far. As far as rugged portable USB powered drives go, this is pretty much your only choice so I'm happy that the drive is so good. The software from LaCie is a different story. Unless you have a real need of some kind to use their security software, don't. The LaCie software is a joke. I tried to see what they offered to patroon off a section for security, but I quickly realized that LaCie doesn't have kind of instructions and I just opted to format and use MacOS disc utilities to encrypt the drive. I did notice on the LaCie website that they are now owned by Seagate so maybe they will improve their software soon.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product, Great Company I have been using LaCie products for over 20 years, never had a problem. The 4TB Rugged Mini, is greatI had been using the 2TB, but needed larger capacity. The 4Tb is fast and small. I have never dropped it, so do not know about the ruggedness. I am very happy with it.
