  • This was a replacement for a similar, smaller capacity and much older LaCie Rugged.
  • This is a very high capacity small drive that fits nicely into a big pocket.
  • Sturdy and portable well worth the money for the capacity and speed

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
LaCie Rugged Triple 1 TB FireWire 800 Plus USB 3.0 Portable 2.5 Inch External Hard Drive
  • Nice to see a drive of this size that doesn't need a separate power supply.
  • Good size. Not as blisteringly fast as the GDrive externals. But it is not an SSD so not a fair comparison. Good for travel.
  • Quite bulky compared to some drives of this type, but quiet in operation.
  • This one is smaller in size which is great. So far, very fast and reliable
  • So handy for location back ups on set, reassuring that they are so rugged. The USB3 is really fast too.
LaCie Rugged Mini 2 TB USB 3.0 Portable 2.5 External Hard Drive
  • Seems sturdy with the orange rubber protection.
  • As the bumper doubles the thickness, make sure you have the spare storage capacity in your travel bag.
  • Really like the size and design of this unit. Works flawlessly with my laptop and IMAC.
  • Nice size and disant write speed. Feels robust
  • It works fast enough to put files in it. And I like the color and size too.

What customers say about "Features"
LaCie Rugged Triple 1 TB FireWire 800 Plus USB 3.0 Portable 2.5 Inch External Hard Drive
  • It's just effectively a lacie hard drive with a gel case- once you take the gel case off it looks the same as any other drive. But it's a nice feature just in case it's dropped.
  • Also handy feature is that it's non-slip due to rubber rim. Handy.
  • I just used Mac OS disc utility to format this in Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and got rid of all the stuff that came with it.
  • First, I tried to install the Security feature they promised, and when I hit the link they ask, it took me to the Seagate website!??!! Then, after the first backup, did not work anymore.
  • The title states Thunderbolt 3 but it's not! Thunderbolt 3 is over a USB-C connection. This device has the old thunderbolt connection
LaCie Rugged Mini 2 TB USB 3.0 Portable 2.5 External Hard Drive
  • As a backup drive, it is really fast for a spinning disk
  • Words well with Time Machine on my 2010 iMAC computer
  • Works like a charm on a MacBook Pro touch bar. Decent speed. Good build and compatible with my thunderbolt 3 cables
  • Really slow in Lightroom - even with USB-C
  • Instructions lacking (Non provided outside warranted information and labeling on box)
  • Item does not work with my 2017 MacBook Pro. Old Thuderbolt connections not, the newest version
