With a 130MB/s transfer speed, you can upload 13 photos of 10MB per second. Thanks to the included software, you can also make automatic backups.

"Great product for external backups"

  • Pros:
    Looks great

I got the product to store all my originals from Lightroom, as my library has out grown my Mac. So far it's been pretty fast on USB C. The library loads in a few seconds.

Also, would like to mention that I had a great experience at the coolblue store. The customer representative was very patient and helped me select the product.

Happy to have purchased Lacie for my Mac

  • Pros:
    Nice design
  • Pros:
    Both USB and USB-C compatibility
  • Pros:
    Decent backup speed
  • Con:
    A bit heavy

I was looking for an external hard disk with USB-C connectivity to use with my MacBook Pro. Lacie seems to be a good find and a good purchase. While I have not performed any speed tests, I am convinced with the backup speed. The design is good with no sharp edges. However, it is a bit on the heavier side, probably due to the capacity and price.
