LaCie Rugged Mini USB 3.0 1TB Review
The LaCie Rugged Mini USB 3.0 1TB simply follows its predecessors in terms of style and functionality.
It measures 4.7 x 2.9 x 0.8 inches on its own but with the distinct lifejacket-orange rubber sleeve as borders, it measures 5.5 x 3.5 x 1 inches. There is a single USB 3.0 port found on top of the drive. The combination of the brushed-metal aluminum finish and an unattractive box frame that is far from the usual sleek design found in other portable hard drives may seem discouraging. Weighing 10.6 ounces, it is also too big for your pocket. However, its portability makes it a good choice for a hard drive.
It is loaded with several safety features which give the user good value for money. Also, it is shock-resistant of up to a height of 1.2 meters, pressure-resistant of up to 1 ton of pressure, and rain-resistant. The name Rugged Mini stays true to its name. Having a powerful storage of 1 TB, the small exterior doesn’t lag behind with its durability. Aside from the huge space where you can put a great number of photos, music, videos, it also features a good transfer rate of up to 5Gb/s. It uses the basic plug and play system; hence, no installation is necessary in transferring files.
The USB 3.0 / 2.0 capability also delivers commendable speed and efficiency. There might be compatibility issues like other drives in the market, but it runs perfectly fine on basic Windows and Mac. Moreover, the LaCie Rugged Mini USB 3.0 1TB offers extra features. The LaCie Private-Public makes available its password protection software for better file security.
This built-in software also includes an automatic backup system depending on the compatibility of the computer, and the Automatic Eco mode which can let you save of almost 50% of power when the device is not in use.The software also consists of a whopping 10GB of free Wuala storage for a year. The LaCie Rugged Mini USB 3.0 1TB provides quality performance. Although not the fastest, its reading and writing speed is above average. Its features also assures of heavy-duty protection.
