Engadget Summary

The LaCie Fuel is fast and solid, offering travelers a rugged alternative to its also-speedy cousin, the Seagate Wireless Plus. CNET says users who connect to the Fuel using the USB 3.0 interface will find it "very fast" and Laptop Mag says it is "fantastic" for streaming content, even though the WiFi write speeds aren't great. The Fuel is essentially a redesigned and slightly improved version of the Seagate Wireless Plus (Seagate owns LaCie), with a bit more bulk that adds weight, but Macworld UK finds the device "sturdy." Thanks to a long battery life and reasonable speeds the LaCie Fuel offers frequent travelers a nice solution for bringing more than just documents while on the go.
