LaCie 2TB Rugged USB-C - A Follow Up Update
If you had read my review on the LaCie 2TB Rugged USB-C All Terrain external storage drive dated Feb 09th 2019 , you would have noticed that I really liked this external storage device.
To read my Feb 09th Review , please clck on the LaCie image on the right
This tough 2TB external drive was perfect for my photography trips especially for those premium trips.
So I decided to bring the LaCie to Japan in February for a week as I photographed various subjects in winter conditions.
The LaCie travelled with me to Tokyo , Yamanoushi - Nagano Prefecture and Shiroshi - Miyagi Prefecture.
So how did the LaCie Perform ?
The LaCie performed with ZERO issues during the entire trip.
Not once did it exhibit any signs of slowing down or had difficulties connecting
The LaCie followed me as I was exposed to the winter outdoor conditions or when I was in the "warmer" indoor conditions.
In the images here , you can see droplets on the LaCie top surface as it got a little wet in during a continuous drizzle as I used it to capture some product shots (with my smartphone).
So yes , I did intentionally expose the LaCie to "abnormal" conditions albeit very briefly which it would not have faced in Singapore.
As mentioned in my first review , I really liked the performance of the LaCie , above you can see my screenshot showing my MacBook screen when I was transferring more than 12GB of images from my XQD card to the LaCie.
> 12GB transferred from card to LaCie in less than 2 minutes. The LaCie's transfer speed performance was FAST and REPEATABLE , just what I needed from an external storage drive. The LaCie was consistently faster then my previous Rugged storage device.
Ha Ha , here you can see yours truly "working" on a Shinkansen (Bullet Train) from Tokyo to Shiroishi which was close to a 2 hours ride.
The LaCie Rugged is USB powered which is so convenient & I don't need an additional power cord.
I also love that "Screaming Loud" Orange Silicone protector , which is so vibrant and loud that it makes a perfect reminder for me not to forget packing it when I finish my work !!
The LaCie Rugged USB-C is now my primary external storage drive which I use to do speedy backups and protect my images during my overseas photography trips. Definitely a product which I would recommend to others who needs a product that gives the user full confidence that it will work smoothly all the time.
As I pen this blog , 2 weeks has passed since my return from Japan , the LaCie continues with no hiccups whatsoever in hot & humid Singapore !
Leaving you with a couple of images that the LaCie was used to "protect" ......
