LaCie Rugged External SSD Reviews

Great Drive, Broken Cable, Poor Service

By Matt
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-16

I bought this drive for editing RED footage in Adobe Premiere on my 2021 MacBook Pro. After about 1 hour of use I started getting disk not ejected properly errors once every few minutes. I switched from the included Thunderbolt 3 cable to a slower USB-C cable, which solved the immediate connection problems. Unfortunately, when I contacted support about getting a replacement TB3 cable, their only solution was to RMA the whole device - which is not possible when you're on a deadline. In my opinion, it is outrageous that at this price point, Seagate support cannot supply me with a working cable. It's not that the support staff were rude or unhelpful, but Seagate policy means their hands are tied. This is a great product and I'd like to purchase more of them for future projects, but the hassle of the broken cable, inadequate support, and having to go out of pocket for an Apple TB3 cable sours my outlook considerably.

I love this LaCie SSD, I have been using it since I got it. I use it to keep my important photos and videos backed up, as well as saving them on other devices. This is more of a backup for me.

Just bought my second one for an upcoming ad campaign shoot. I'll use it to back up everything and be completely assured of speed and reliability. It's so very fast and so small it's great for location work.

We are backed up to the cloud from our iMac, but it is great to have pictures and Time Machine backed up to something easy to take, easy to hide, etc. It is the pictures that are the most important. The 5 year recovery guarentee gives us some confidence as well

The best portable solution for Apple M1 Pro Audio work

By Graciela
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-02-23

I've been down the m2 SSD rabbit hole with the sole pursuit of reliability and stable performance, not insane speeds. What I've found is that 1GB of constant Read and Write speed is perfect for my workflow in Audio Post and Film Scoring. And this unit delivers exactly that on an M1 Mac Mini working on Pro Tools, Logic Pro and other audio related software. No drops in performance in long sessions, and no random disconnects from the system. It has worked great all the time, the performance has no dips it's very a well engineered controller and m2 memory and heat dissipation is no problem at all. As with all these units, under heavy load, it will get hot, but there's no throttling of transfer speed. I've had a Crucial m2 SSD with a Sabrent enclosure with decent speed at the beginning, and sudden performance dropoffs and disconects. Samsung SSDs on OWC enclosures with off the charts Read and Write speeds that drop off after a couple of GB are transferred and disconnects. Then a Sandisk Extreme drive which was good but suffered from the same write drop off. So bad that it topped off at 100MB transfer at times, I couldn't load audio samples from the disk for playback. Testing on another system on other mundane tasks these SSDs perform just fine, but under heavy work load they start to croak. Working with audio is all about thousands of small audio files being manipulated, rendered, deleted, sampled, recorded and exported, and if the hard drive cant keep up the DAW freezes and work gets lost. Read and write speeds of very small files never reach more than 800 to 1000 GBps transfer even on the fastest drives or interfaces. So after putting this drive through all my toughest and biggest sessions, it's just like working off the integrated Mac Mini drive, seamless. It's built for pro work, not show-off speeds that drop after intense workload. The disconnects of other SSDs I could assume are the result of bad heat management. The price is what it is, but for my peace of mind it's worth it. No more enclosures, spec diving, You Tube demos with Blackmagic Speedtest as the ultimate wow factor. This drive is truly great for pro work, recommended Con: The provided cables are laughably small, be sure to purchase larger ones

My gamer pc has USB 3.2 Gen 1 type A ports! Can an ssd external drive w/ 3.2 Gen 2x2, USB-C or USB 3.2 Gen 2 be compatible with my pc?
Asked by: Jorge
Yes, you can use a drive like the LaCie 1TB Rugged USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C External SSD BH #LASTHR100080 using an adapter but the speeds will only go up to Gen 1 speeds (5Gbps) so you will lose performance. If you have a desktop PC and an open PCie slot, you can install a PCie card with Gen 2 USB C and then be able to use the drive to it's full potential. This is a good option for the PCIe card if you are interested in exploring that option and have an available PCie slot on your Computer.

Asked by: Anonymous
This drive is universal in that sense, as it is ideal for any of the use cases you described, it is not optimized or weighted in any one direction. In essence it doesn't know the difference what kind of files you put on it. It is simply a storage conduit.

What form factor is the drive inside? Is it accesible in order to upgrade it to a larger capacity SSD 2,5mm, like the older RUGGED versions?. Thanks!
Asked by: Marcelo
The previous answer is incorrect. I was able to remove the orange rubber material and also remove the external cover abs successfully replace the 2TB NVme with a “Sabrent Rocket Q 8TB NVMe PCIe M.2 2280 Internal SSD High Performance Solid State Drive R/W 3300/2900MB/s (SB-RKTQ-8TB)”. Sadly it cost $1,399.99 but it works. I now used the extra 2TB NVme on my PS5.

Typically SSD do not run hot as they have no moving parts. As this has a rubber casing it might run a bit warmer
