      Most reliable backup

      This is one of two of the same model I have owned for the past 2 years, and they have both performed flawlessly for daily staggered backups. I have a 1TB Time C This is one of two of the same model I have owned for the past 2 years, and they have both performed flawlessly for daily staggered backups. I have a 1TB Time Capsule too, but based on its reliability, I'm not optimistic about a long life. What convinced to buy the first one was that the Apple Store employees were using them out on the floor. This Lacie drives works easily with Time Machine and the older Apple Backup software. I highly recommend it.

It's rugged enough so that I don't have to worry about the bumps and grinds of everyday use. It's compact and has an excellent choice of interfaces. The speeds are awesome. So five stars on all of the above.

      Not Suitable for Use in Warm Climate

      I purchased a LaCie 1TB Rugged Firewire 800 USB3 HDD in December 2011 to use as a secure backup for photographs and videos when we travel overseas. We have used I purchased a LaCie 1TB Rugged Firewire 800 USB3 HDD in December 2011 to use as a secure backup for photographs and videos when we travel overseas. We have used this LaCie Rugged HDD on a handful of occasions as we tend to travel overseas every 3 to 4 years. Recently I attempted to use this LaCie Rugged HDD to perform an independent backup of some photographs and personal files from my iMac. I was unable to copy these files to this 1TB HDD as the Lacie Rugged HDD became very hot after saving between 83GB and 84GB of files and then misbehaved, hanging Finder in OSX El Capitan and also corrupting any other external HDDs that I had plugged into my iMac at the time. I spent several days on the phone to Apple Support and finally traced this problem with Finder hanging to the overheating of the Lacie Rugged 1TB HDD. The case design of the Lacie Rugged HDD and in particular the rubber edge bump strip clearly does not allow sufficient cooling of the HDD inside. The LaCie Rugged HDD may be suitable for use in Antarctica, Siberia or Alaska but is not suitable for use in a warm climate. I am very disappointed with this product as I expected a long life from a premium device for which I paid a premium price and all I have now is an expensive rubber edged paperweight which has only been used a handful of times over 5 years.

      Cable keeps falling out!

      The insertion depth of the cable to the drive must be less than 1mm. So rugged, yet a gentle breeze will drop the cable, disconnecting the drive. It may be a go The insertion depth of the cable to the drive must be less than 1mm. So rugged, yet a gentle breeze will drop the cable, disconnecting the drive. It may be a good drive if you can keep it connected, but infuriorating otherwise. Test your aggression levels with this mood destroyer. I wanted it for my photography when out on a trip, definitely rather get anything else.
