LaCie Mini overview

  • 1Description

The LaCie Rugged Mini Portable Hard Drive provides 1TB 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

    LaCie Mini reviews

    1TB Rugged Mini Portable Hard Drive is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 183.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Vulnerable cable connection This is my third LaCie Rugged drive, and at some point they all developed problems, mainly with the cable connectors failing. I like the rubberised design, but they have other weak spots. Have also had problems with Lacies Quadra drives, so have decided they don't deserve any more of my money. Have to replace two Rugged drives now and decided to go for the the Buffalo Ministation Extreme, where the cable is attached to the enclosure, eliminating a weak spot.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's not the what, it's the why. Anyone who uses external hard drives for video work knows that brands come in and out of favor due to manufacturing changes. For the most part, LaCie has treated me very well (knock on wood) and so I tend to come back to them for their reliable rugged drives. I do location work and it's nice to have a portable for back up as well as a small (in size) drive for mailing to clients across the states. On the why tip, B&H is THE source. They've never messed up a delivery or order for me. I can only assume their customer service is top-notch, as I've yet to ever need them. I really appreciate B&H's commitment to price, value, supply and information/reviews on their products.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect HD for Photoshoots As the lead IT manager for a Mid-size advertising agency in Soho, I have many of our creatives requesting hard drives to offload digital photos/raw video while on the shoot. The Lacie Rugged allows us to transport data with less worry of damaging the harddrive and also is powered through the Firewire cord so there is one less cord to have to deal with, and in our case when travelling to other countries from time to time frees us the worry of another power cord. The data rate is also extremely fast which keeps the impatient ones from waiting too long for the latest batch of images for our advertising needs. I highly recommend these drives.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The work flow going while traveling I'm going on a journey to find my next work location. I needed best price. Best product. Rugged. Good looking external drive. I am a shopper. I do not buy anything over priced or from just anybody. I will buy from B&H because they are also polite! Yes. Polite by saying on their website that they were gone and the item wouldn't ship right away... Online communication that's a bonus! Easy set up on my Mac Air and all other devices... but watch the partition deal. Unless your are a pro just keep the slider to one computer.. you'll see when you set up. The product Lacie is my goto to all my drives...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Reliable Hard Drive I am a photographer/artist and use my mini Lacies nearly everyday to store things I'm working on such as photos, scans or documents. They haven't let me down yet! The read/write speed is fast and I don't have any problems with lag time when transferring Raw files from my camera, scanning film at high resolutions or just selecting edits. They do tend to get a little hot while in use for long periods, but no more than I've noticed from other hard drives.These little hard drives are really portable and built like tanks. I throw mine in my camera bag while traveling or leave them on my desk at home and they take up no space at all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Portable Drive I have been using the Lacie Rugged Portable Drives for many years to back-up files and take them along when I travel. This latest drive is noticeably smaller than previous versions... a tad shorter and narrower, and perhaps 35% thinner. This model also has a light indicating power and activity. No power adapter required, and this one doesn't even have a port for one. Can't comment on speed of USB 3 as I'm using with USB 2 devices. My only small complaint is the maximum size available is 1TB (about a year ago I purchased an older 1.5TB version, but it is no longer available, and is not even listed on the Lacie web site).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough, Dependable, Worry Free I'm a Wedding Photographer in the Dallas/ Fort.Worth area and frequently travel. It's always stressful worrying about the safety of clients photos, and these little power house drives are an awesome solution. Portable hard drives are great but are all too often brittle, and unreliable. When I found out how tough these LaCie drives were, purchasing a few was a no brainer. The build and ergonomics are excellent, and the orange protective casing instills a lot of confidence in me personally while I travel. They're shock resistant, water resistant, and can withstand an enormous amount of weight & pressure. I love that I can throw them wherever I want in my gear bag, and know that they'll be safe, and especially that my clients photos are protected. The USB 3.0 capability provides super fast data transfer. I can back up 100gbs of RAW photos in less than 20 min, which is blazing fast compared to most USB 2.0 drives. All in all, you get 1TB, a rock solid, reliable drive, all for an awesome price. Definitely worth it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy and Very Good These mini drives are more portable than the regular Ruggeds. The mini is more limited in connection with only USB but that's what I usually use anyway. At 5.25 x 3.5 x .75 these will just barely fit into a cheap case logic padded fabric zipper case. (A regular Rugged will not fit.) We use many of these drives - definitely our preferred portable. Fast and pretty durable. We have a some of these still being cleared and reused after 3 years. They do not slide off of desks with the grippy bumpers. Easy to format to whatever is needed.
