LaCie Rugged External HDD Reviews

one of the top external hard drive but I still back it up

Don't rely all your work on one drive.

The hard-drive itself isn't rugged but has a rubber enclosure to protect it, presumably from drops of a few feet. I wouldn't huck it out the window of a moving vehicle, but I'm not sure your external drive needs that level of durability. What you're getting here is a solid, sensible, functional increase in your storage space at a reasonable price. I am using it to store large (7gb) photoshop working files so that my MacBook doesn't get bogged down. Working well so far...

I like LaCie hard drives and I have a variety of them and have never had trouble. Until this time. I have a MacBook pro with USB-A connections, still. The drive with the USB-C cable and adapter didn't work. It received power through the setup, but not enough to connect and give me the HD icon on the desktop. Tried all workarounds suggested, but no luck. Bought a USB-C to USB-A cable and - so far - it works.

The LaCie rugged series of drives have always been a great choice for external storage when reliability and durability are required. The USB-C connectivity in this particular model is great for future proofing. Highly recommend, no complaints thus far.

Reliable and rugged

The LaCie Rugged hard drives are very reliable and tough. This is my sixth one. Over many years I've never had one fail. They are useful for data backups which don't require fast transfer speeds. If you need a faster drive, 'consider the LaCie Rugged SSD Pro models.

awesome classic design at a decent price

great product! I've felt more comfortable traveling with this hard drive than any I've owned. Great storage, and since it's still hard drive technology the price isn't too bad. Only thing I wish is that the transfer speeds were snappier and that it were an SSD, so in the future I'll probably look at the SSD options.

Really well built Hard drive.

Which would be the best match for a macBook pro macOS 10.14.6? I want to move my photo catalog to an external drive.
Asked by: Susan
I use the LaCie 5TB Rugged for LR. I have both the LR catalog and the photos on the drive. It makes it easy to access my photos from any of my MAC computers with LR installed. MacBook when traveling and iMac at home. I also regularly backup the LR catalog and photos so a dedicated backup drive. I have not noticed any speed issues with the 5TB Rugged. Its a trusted workhorse in my book!
