    LaCie Rugged reviews

    5TB Rugged USB 3.0 Type-C External Hard Drive is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from DEPENDABLE I love LaCie hard drives and SSD's.� This 5TB hard drive is as solid as a rock.� I have gotten rid of all of my other drives and ONLY use the LaCie Rugged drives now.� I use Adobe Premiere Pro on my Mac Pro (late 2013) computer and my LaCie rugged drives are a perfect fit. LaCie uses Seagate drives which has been a very dependable drive for me for many years.� Seagate has been around since 1979.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well So for the folks who remember this company from 2000 and their advertisements for products geared towards the Mac market, it should be noted that as of 2014 that LaCie is a Seagate company. In as much as I have seen my fair share of 1TB + Seagate hard drives die since 2009, this was slightly disappointing to find out as I was coming close to filling up my 4TB WD My Passport Ultra and needed more capacity in a single drive. Also note: these are two physical drives in one. With that the folks who are used to throwing out the initial files contained on the drive out of the box need to refrain. The initial software is needed to put those two drives in a RAID 0, another drawback, is on the drive. There is an option to make a 2.5TB RAID 1. It’s on a 400 MB FAT32 partition initially. After setup the files are on the drive still but the 400MB partition is gone. And the setup application has to be run from the drive itself. If you backed up the files and deleted the partition trying to partition it manually, you can make another 400 MB FAT32 partition, labeled anything, and put the files back on the drive. Having to use this on the go a bunch I do like the big orange rubber surround on it. It is a few ounces heavier than my WD My Passport Ultra 4TB was: ~12.4 ounces to WDs ~9.4 or so. You don’t feel the drives rotating when you disconnect, so it seems you have some protection from minor shocks and impacts. As for performance, it seems right on par with the WD My Passport Ultra 4TB. All in All, it’s a good buy. Cool to have something from them. Just hope I don’t have to use that 2 Years of data recovery protection on the count of this being a RAID 0 implementation in practice. There just wasn’t a WD option beyond 4TB in a mobile drive out there :).
