LaCie 4TB Rugged USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C External Hard Drive

By Eva Bjork

Very good, fast and small. I like the possibility that there is no need to plug this into an electrical outlet. Also, this is not heavy which is good when traveling with heavy photographic equipment.

Good price, good product.

I ordered an external hard drive for my new Apple MacBook Pro to store my photos on when traveling. This HD has rugged in it's name and certainly stands up to the name. I have only set it up and not used it yet, but if it performs as well as my other four LaCie external hard drives, it will be an investment well worth the money I paid for it.

Upgraded from an old PC to a Macbook Pro a few months ago and none of my external hard drives were formatted for Mac. Got this for my MBP to use for Lightroom and some light video editing. Does everything I need it to do at a great speed. Would recommend and would probably buy more of these in the future.

Excellent storage device

This is an excellent product particularly for field research and backing up data. I have several of these now of varying memory capacity and so far I'm delighted with the speed, quality, capacity, and durability of this product. Excellent value for money and I highly recommend this product.

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!

Can I use this external hard drive to hold my 4K footage that I am editing on my iMac and Premiere Pro CC or do I HAVE to get an External Hard Drive that has faster speed???
Asked by: Erick
Sure you can use this for footage. The speed of the drive and connection will dictate how quickly the system can access the footage, but it will work just fine. I use mine for 6k Black Magic footage and it works great.
