A Closer Look
The LaCie Rugged series are pretty simple, but I still think we should take a closer look at a few of the features and design aspects of the drive.
One of the first things you’ll notice is the cable that runs around the outer edge of the drive. This is the built-in Thunderbolt cable which Apple users will need – or rather want to use. It is superior to USB and most Mac systems feature this type of connector
When the cable is wrapped around the drive, the plug is protected by a cover as seen below. This will keep dust and water away from both the attached plug and the extra USB connector that this drive features. A cool bonus is that there is a second and spare cover in the box, so even if you should lose one, you got a spare.
As mentioned previously, the LaCie rugged features an extra connector. It is a USB-C connector that can be used with the two extra cables which are included with the drive for those who don’t have Thunderbolt ports.
