Summary: The drive has a solid feel, and it matches perfectly the design of my MacBook Pro. The USB 3.0 significantly cut my backup time, and the Eco mode makes it excellent for working off the grid with my laptop.
Summary: The drive worked out of the box and it's quicker than I thought it would be with USB 3. I've been using it with my MacBook Pro for almost a year now and haven't had any issues to date. There's lots of storage space available for my photographs and backups. Overall, I'm impressed.
Summary: I'm very happy with this drive. It's nice and light and easy to take around with me whenever I travel. The added bonus is that it's powered by USB so not only do I get the added speed from the USB 3.0 but I don't have to carry a power pack either. It works like it's suppose to, and was a piece of cake to setup.
Summary: When I was looking for a new portable drive, I was very happy to come across this item. It has an outstanding design. It's small, quiet, and very solid. It was basically plug and play. The speeds are excellent with USB 3.0. This drive is a treat for photography enthusiasts, it's great to through into your backpack to hold all of your photo libraries. LaCie did a great job in my opinion.
Summary: I have had this drive for less than a month and it completely crashed. I bought it to store some photos on my lightroom catalog during a trip to Hawaii. After transferring the data onto the drive, the disk unmounted from my machine and can no longer be found. I've tried plugging it into different computers with no luck. It just makes a beeping noise.
Summary: I bought this drive a few months ago and I must admit, I plugged it in, configured the backup settings and I haven't had to touch it since. It sits there and quietly does its work. It looks good too. Definitely a drive to recommend.
Summary: I'd recommend this drive to anyone who travels often and needs to work with large files. I'm an amateur travel photographer and you can imagine just how much storage space I need. I've got two drives like this that I take with me on trips. It's usually enough to backup 7-10 days' worth of work. When I get home, I move the data across to my iMac and process it. USB 3.0 certainly helps. File transfers don't take much time anymore.
