New toy – Lacie Rugged Thunderbolt – Very Nice!

I have mentioned this to you before when it came on the market.  But I got one.  It has an integrated Thunderbolt cable.  I have an older one that travels in my checked luggage that I use with SuperDuper for image backups (which I suggest is the best product for that) and TimeMachine for the normal stuff.  I have a different Lacie external at home on my desk for the same purposes.  Nice TM supports two disk now.  But I wanted another rugged to use for a number of things.  To carry ISOs, movies, files, and even image backups while I was out and on the road.  And I really like the rugged brand and an integrated cable is handy.  Check out the pictures.

As I got it - spare cover, and USB 3.0 cable.

As for speed, I can say it is fast.  My image backups are quite a bit faster (then the previous one like it I have) but what that translates to in numbers I am not sure.  There are 1 and 2 TB versions of this with a disk, and 250 / 500 with SSD.  The SSD are pricier of course but also faster.

So I am happy with this cool gadget and I have had 2 or 3 previous versions of it from the same line and have been or am still very happy with them all.
