Review: LaCie Rugged USB3 Thunderbolt Series portable SSD is fast and affordable

This seems VERY suspicious, and not at all in line with the outcomes of your other tests of this same drive.
Are you certain these results are not transposed? I ask because in each one of your other results on this same drive (regardless of interface) as well as any other drive, the read speeds are always notably faster than the write speeds.
Additionally, "read time of 190.5 MBps" is suspect, because 190.5 MBps, or "Megabytes per second " is not a measure of time. So that is either a read RATE, or it actually is a representation of time that is incorrectly measured.
It would actually make more sense that the read TIME (expressed in seconds) is a lower that write time, but that would make the RATE (expressed in MBps) higher and not lower.
Very strange, and not at all logical.

Thank you for a very well thought out response.

You may be miss that it is a rugged device; ment to take more than the average drive. Also, it is a SSD.
That said, I've never have much luck with these drive, from this company, and the customer service is abysmal at best.

Interesting thing is that USB 3 speed is higher than Thunderbolt. First I suspected TB cable, but with Apple's original cable is the same thing...

Apple just released an update that included TB connectivity fixes - I wonder if that had something to do with it.

That's sloppy writing even if the figures haven't been transposed. A drive doesn't score anything in order to write or read a file. The writer has mixed up two other possible versions:
When writing/reading a 10GB file, the Rugged drive scored....
The Rugged drive took ______ to write/read a 10GB file.
