LaCie 4TB Rugged USB Type-C review

 

No external power ; Attractive design ; Type-C ; Exceeds promised speeds

Cumbersome setup ; Mechanical drive

Lacie’s Rugged USB-C drive sells in a variety of capacities, with our 4TB review unit retailing for $250. It boasts a sturdy design, massive capacity, and portability only matched by much pricier external SSDs. Those drives offer their own advantages...

LaCie Rugged SSD Pro Review

 

Field-leading speed ; Also works with USB-C 3.1 Gen 1 and Gen 2 ports ; Extreme ruggedness against dust, water, drops, crush pressure ; Five-year warranty

High price per gigabyte ; Cable is a bit short

The LaCie Rugged SSD Pro external drive is designed for professional videographers and others who work in the field with Thunderbolt 3-equipped computers (most often Macs). Small, light, and even mailable, it earns the right to add "extremely" in front...

LaCie Rugged RAID Shuttle

 

LaCie's two-drive Rugged RAID Shuttle offers the choice of high capacity and fast performance (in striped mode), or of half the capacity with all data mirrored on the second disk. It's ideal for anyone who works in the field and produces oodles of data.

Flat, easily mailable chassis. Can set to RAID 0 for higher speed and capacity, or to RAID 1 for drive mirroring. Bundled cables for USB Type-A and Type-C on PC side.

No tab over Type-C connector to protect it from dust and water. High price per gigabyte, due largely to ruggedization and RAID design.

Bottom Line: LaCie's two-drive Rugged RAID Shuttle offers the choice of high capacity and fast performance (in striped mode), or of half the capacity with all data mirrored on the second disk. It's ideal for anyone who works in the field and produces...

LaCie Rugged RAID

 

With its protective rubber bumpers and speedy 4 terabytes of storage, the LaCie Rugged RAID has what it takes to handle the rigors of your travels or even just your daily life.

Ruggedized for drops, dust, and water splashes. Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 connectivity. Integrated Thunderbolt cable. Easy setup.

Bulky. Using the drive with USB may require additional power.

Conclusion At a list price of $419.99, the Rugged RAID rings up at about 10 cents per gigabyte, which is a lot less than the $1 per gigabyte of the LaCie Rugged Thunderbolt, and comparable in value to the WD My Passport Pro (11 cents per gigabyte)....
