Tough in the Field. Fast Everywhere.
With the LaCie Rugged Thunderbolt, even if you go off-road, your project stays on time. With IP 54-rated resistance to the elements and blinding-fast speeds through Thunderbolt and USB 3.0, you don’t have to compromise between durability, mobility, and speed.
Get lightning-fast transfer speeds on Mac and PC thanks to the USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt interfaces. With the SSD version, the LaCie Rugged delivers up to 387 MB/s—one of the fastest bus-powered products available*. The hard disk version performs at up to 122 MB/s, a 35% improvement over FireWire 800. Back up and transfer mountains of data in a fraction of the time. Enjoy noticeably more responsive photo library browsing.
*These transfer rates were achieved using AJA System Test with the SSD version connected to a Mac computer via the Thunderbolt interface. Actual data rates may vary depending on operating environment and other factors, such as chosen interface and disk capacity.
Don't let your project get derailed by incompatibility between your external drive and your computer. With both USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt interfaces, the LaCie Rugged is a perfect match for your Mac and PC. Since USB 3.0 is backward compatible, you can connect it to any standard computer, anywhere.

What a disappointment. Now I also get to purchase a new hard drive and install it so this enclose can perform as advertised. I feel greatly misled by the promised quick performance advertising
The drive is nice. Standard LaCie Rugged, if you're familiar with them. It provides a level of comfort knowing that you don't have to be overly delicate with the unit when it's not in use.
My favorite feature with this is that the Thunderbolt cable is built in and fits integrally into the rubber bumper. I won't miss having to keep track of a separate cable or rubber-band it to the drive.
Regarding speed, I'm sure it's there but my application for the drive isn't taking full advantage of it. I'm using it as a dedicated Time Machine drive, so there's a bunch of processing slowing the information transfer down.
The one issue I have is price, and it's enough of an issue to knock off a star. I'm all for things being priced appropriately, even if the price is high. At long as the value of the item matches the price, I wouldn't take off a star. In this case I think they're taking advantage of the LaCie name plus the use of the Thunderbolt cable, and are hiking the price. You can get 1TB external drives for $80, to the $180 I paid for this. Sure, it's a LaCie Rugged, so that would make $100-120 a fair range. Add the Thunderbolt and I can see $140-150. $180 is really pushing it but — as I'm sure they're counting on — I wanted this configuration and this was the only one to get, so I paid it.
Connecting more than one to a MacBook Pro at a time often causes one to eject randomly while reading or writing. We also had one hooked up and it would eject randomly to.
They seem unstable and we don't like the limited links on the thunderbolt cord. In concept it seems like a good idea but in practice it's not that great. The extra piece of rubber to cap the end is a bit of a nuisance to
The previous version was so much better and more reliable before this new design
Used in conjunction with my MacBook Pro, this is my working storage drive for my photography files.
I travel frequently for work and wanted something that can handle the bumps and sometimes dirty conditions that I would subject it too.
I recently spent my 2 vacation camping and touring around the blowing sands, salt and dirt of Death Valley and Arizona. I was happy to have this drive in my bag.
I left one open star because the orange case is a terrible color. I also wish I could just remove the case for at home use. That way I could use it with a docking station.
