LaCie Rugged Thunderbolt
Storage devices might not be the sexiest gift out there, but for avid photographers and music collectors, having extra storage space and an easy backup option are a must. Check out CNET's picks of top home storage devices this holiday season.
The Rugged Thunderbolt is the first bus-powered portable Thunderbolt drive from LaCie. It comes in SSD-based or hard drive-based options and offers very good performance as well as ruggedness. A Thunderbolt cable and a USB 3.0 cable come included. For a Thunderbolt-based drive, it's very affordable.
The good: The LaCie Rugged Thunderbolt offers great performance, USB 3.0 support, and is rugged and competitively priced.
The bad: The LaCie Rugged Thunderbolt offers just one Thunderbolt port and its SSD version offers only 120GB of storage space.
The bottom line: Fast, flexible, rugged, and affordable, the LaCie Rugged Thunderbolt is one of the best high-end portable drives on the market.
