Lacie Rugged 5TB Mini USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive $119+FS @ B&H

Been waiting on a deal on this drive that normally retails at $179 and up. Currently $50 off, was tax free to Missouri (plus I used the Paypal offer of 6 mo no interest). I'm replacing some aging Transcend shockproof 2tb drives with these that get used in the field, so they take a pretty good beating over time. Best price I'd seen previously was $99 for the 4TB version, but that was "Open Box".

(This is NOT the higher end Thunderbolt or USB-C version.)

Lacie stjj5000400 - Drop, Crush & Water Resistant. Up to 130MB/s transfer speed.

Everyone including Amazon has matched this Black Friday (early) price, I'm probably buying from Abt as they are old school (1936) and I've bought from them in the past.But definitely thumbs up on your post.

I don't see the Amazon deal. I do see 4TB for the same price, but the 5TB appears to be more expensive.

They sure do. Just replaced one with a wd 5tb easystore drive that was $90 at best buy. Reliability was the key.

That case isn't gonna protect the internals. It will just protect the case from getting marred

Seagate owns LaCie so LaCie will only ever come with Seagate drives. But it's worth noting that all WD external 2.5" drives use a shitty soldered-in USB connector in place of a SATA connector, so even if you took them out of their enclosure you could not connect them to a SATA adapter, internally somewhere, etc, while Seagate external 2.5" drives just use a standard SATA drive with a USB adapter inside the enclosure that you could remove and re-use the drive. I'd rather have the latter.

If you can take the capacity hit, an external SSD would be a better choice with no moving parts.

Although this is true, modern day 2.5" hard drives are supposed to throttle down when they detect vibrations.
Because its when things bare spinning at high velocities, that they are incredibly fragile.

I know all drives fail, but after 2 of these bit the dust on me, I'll be avoiding them like the plague.
