Great upgrade in speed
Reviewed by Kelan. Review Posted 14/07/2013

This drive is a perfect travel buddy for my mac book pro. I've even set it up as a safety boot device in case my mac fails to boot. It's my Time Machine backup as well. Simply can not recommend this drive enough, and can't wait for a time where all drives are as solid and rugged as this!

Works great
Reviewed by anonymous. Review Posted 30/10/2013

I've been carting this drive around in my bag since day one, and it's still working perfectly. Definitely lives up to its rugged reputation. I'm loving the Thunderbolt connection - I have it at home on my Mac, but it's only USB3 at work, so this drive gives me the best of both worlds. Really pleased with it!

reliable and durable drive
Reviewed by anonymous. Review Posted 20/11/2013

Security, encryption, SSD and USB 3.0 - what more could I ask for? I bought this drive to backup my current projects, and I'm loving it. The transfer speeds are just amazing, files load without any 'hang time', even videos and large RAW photos! This is a perfect drive for me.

Excellent Product
Reviewed by Saber. Review Posted 16/12/2013

The thing that cinched the sale for me when I looked at the specs of this product was that it comes with a Thunderbolt cable. I already own one that I bought previously, so I know how much they cost, and it's really great to have a spare without having to part with even more money.. Performance-wise the drive is great. I would definitely recommend it.

A great item
Reviewed by Kimberly G. Review Posted 19/05/2014

The drive was easy to setup right out of the box. I use it with my MacBook Pro, and it works great. The transfer speeds are excellent. The design is nice and solid. I've had no problems at all, so far.

Fantastic Drive
Reviewed by Caitlin M. Review Posted 26/07/2014

Fast, drop-proof, dust-proof, water-resistant... What more could I ask for? This drive is probably the best portable drive I've owned. Easy to use, secure, and solid, I use it for my work, and it runs great, no complains.

Very Happy
Reviewed by anonymous. Review Posted 29/05/2014

I didn't think too much about connectivity past my Mac until I got partnered with a Windows user on a work project, whereupon it turned out the only drive we had that would work with both our computers was my Rugged. Between Thunderbolt and USB 3, it's a speed demon!

Rugged and fast
Reviewed by Chase. Review Posted 19/01/2014

Excellent item. Works well. I use it to transfer footage from the set. It's fast, and is great for working directly from the drive. I will definitely keep buying these drives as the SSDs get bigger.

great drive
Reviewed by anonymous. Review Posted 23/03/2014

This unit has become my main portable drive despite the fact that it doesn't have as much storage space as other units I own. This is because files just fly between here and there, it doesn't require a separate power supply, and has the look, feel, and design of a solid product.
