Small and Compact


from 1625 Rockaway Parkway 3v Brooklyn 11236  -  Frequent User

By loading all of my files on it I can have a backup in case I lose my photos. I haven't found any negatives about the product thus far.

I was a bit skeptical about the mini at first. But it works flawlessly, fits perfectly in decent sized pockets, and is fast! The only con is that at times it can get a little hot but this has only happened twice. Overall it is a great product and well worth your money!


Stylish, Rugged, and Versatile!


from Colorado Springs, CO  -  Heavy Duty User

It just doesn't get any better then the LaCie Rugged Mini. It carries 90% of the protection that comes with the original LaCie Rugged Hard Drive, but with half the size. It's well-designed and ready for use in the field. I own a 2012 Retina MacBook Pro, but rather then get a Thunderbolt Drive, I went with the USB 3.0 version because as of this review, spinning hard drives cannot read or write any faster then USB 3.0, so there is no need to get a Thunderbolt drive unless the drive is solid-state. This drive is rugged, solid, and you can literally drive a car over it and it will still function. It just doesn't get any better...


Small, simple and does the job


from Odenton, MD  -  Frequent User

Great when traveling as it's small and light weight

Randy H  Yes it is backwards compatible
Shopper  Can I download photos directly from my camera to this device, and, can I download photos from my IPad to this device?
ELIZABETH M  I do neither of these two functions. But don't see why not. It is a hard drive and should take both actions quite well.
