LaCie Rugged USB 3.0 Thunderbolt series – 256GB SSD Tear down and Speed test
Today, I get hold of a unit of LaCie Rugged USB3.0. This portable SSD actually comes with a very soft rubberised sleeve that encase the 4 corners of the drive, as the name already stated rugged, hence it suppose to able to take some drop test that I presumed.
The rubberised orange sleeve for the actual product is quite brilliant , compared with the product show case from the OEM website, you can see the picture below on from my teardown section
The teardown of LaCie Rugged USB3.0, actually revealed the internal SSD U100 is provided by SanDisk. I had also preform 1GB stress test with comparing the two interfaces provided. This LaCie Rugged USB3.0 SSD, did have a impressive result on my speed test but, I noticed that USB3.0 actually give a better read perform then thunderbolt interface. I’m not sure why is it so, maybe it got to do with the chipset and the design of the thunderbolt I/O controller.
