      Excellent product and service

      Posted by Marcy on 24th Sep 2013

      I received my LaCie Rugged Mini 1TB very fast. This is a well made piece of equipment - it has a solid construction along with a protective outer rubber sleeve. File transfer is lightning fast. I plan on buying another one for my son. Also, the price that tapeandmedia has on this is the best i've seen around.
