I bought one of these a few years ago and have loved it. It was fast and never had any problems at all. I purchased it after reading a review that tested multiple drives to see which one survived abuse and this one came out at the top. After extensive testing until all other drives died the LaCie Rugged continued to work. The comment they gave was that they did everything but run it over with a truck. Unfortunately, we DID run it over with a truck and left it out in the rain all night. I was hysterical until I plugged it in and tried to mount it. I was stunned when it did mount and was able to transfer everything over to my laptop! I'll never buy any other brand of Hard Drive.

I've used an earlier model LaCie rugged drive and like it quite a bit. Before that, I'd gone through three or four external hard-drives, all of which had serious problems. For example, they drew more power than standard USB ports could deliver, they were fragile or they would inexplicably stop working. LaCie's drive worked great from the instant I plugged it in, and it's been through some pretty rough handling.

But since I last purchased a LaCie product, they've been infected by the bizarre impulse to supply a suite of programs designed to help you manage backups, journal your files and allow some limits to sharing when using "sneakernet". Fair enough. Two major problems. The installation program is highly cryptic and secretive about its intention to load these programs on your computer and the programs are just awful.

How awful? Think pre-iPod mp3 player management software, or some of the more intrusive anti-malware code that your less sophisticated friends buy and which turns out to be harder to remove than the most persistent virus. The "Genie" backup solution helpfully rebuilt my desktop after blowing it away, only now, post-Genie, I can't right-click icons, I can't see my taskbar and I can't open new explorer windows. If you're going to feature a piece of software that's designed for mass use by unsophisticated users why go cheap? All it's going to do is make people very very angry at you.

I've managed to undo the worst of the depredations visited on my system by LaCie's aggressive and buggy software. My drive is still oddly partitioned into two 500 gb NTFS partions (why? the manual and the installer are silent) but otherwise it seems to be working just fine.

So if this drive looks like a good deal, be sure to factor in the cost of four hours of your time spent undoing the blitzkrieg assault on your system that LaCie seems hell-bent on deploying.

The drive seems to be fine. However, the instructions when you get it emphasize that you need to use the set-up app that comes with it. That didn't work on my Mac. Then when you look further into what you might do about this, you are told that the app doesn't work a significant number of times and you will probably need to use disk utilities that come with your operating system. If they had just told me that to begin with, it would have saved me an hour or two of futility.

I've had a lot of different makes of hard drives but there's a reason Apple stores typically use this one at the Genius bar - super reliable and convenient (no external AC needed - thing is driven off of the USB or FW port of whatever you plug into). Forget about the others. This is the one.

All drives will crash one day, and the competition to make them bigger and cheaper has probably had an impact on quality. With that in mind:

We ship or carry large video files all over the place, and have probably 10 of these 320- and 500GB "rugged" drives. Only one has ever failed--someone tossed it in a backpack and then--who knows? But it had a big dent in the case.... We also have a huge pile of the 2Big LaCie drives, too many to count. One Enterprise class drive failed to mount out of the box (so we no longer pay double for those, just buy the regular ones); one can no longer be written to (some corruption issue); and one lost data when someone hot-swapped a RAID 0-striped drive at the wrong time. But we also have one that has been running nearly 24/7 for 3 or 4 years without a hiccup. Compared with other hard drives, and we've tried most all, LaCie is the most dependable.

I purchased this HD in June 2013 because it was reviewed as the 'best'. I barely put 1G of info on it and it started to make these 'clicking' noises and now won't show up on my Mac. The HD is now worthless. I've spoken with LaCie and all they can do is replace it or give me a 'refurbished' one. THEY WILL NOT RECOVER ANY OF MY INFO. If I'd like to have them recover it, it would cost in upwards of $500.

LaCie has said that while their HDs are bus powered, they are NOT MADE for a laptop. The laptop doesn't have enough power to support the drive. This may be why it froze up. Now, why in the world would you make a drive that's not made for a laptop when 97% of the world uses laptops!!!???

I will NEVER buy an external hard drive again. They are mechanical and not made to last. Do yourself a favor and save your money and back up your info online. There is Jungle Disk and Amazon that are a little more expensive in the long run, but you'll never have to worry about losing your info!
