Summary: This drive worked great for a while, until the USB connector snapped off. The solder holding it in place is quite flimsy. Because the built-in cable is so short it can put some stress on it, apparently. I love every LaCie drive I've ever owned, but not this one.
Summary: Perfect for archiving data. Not the fastest drive (what do you expect with a 5400 RPM USB 2.0 drive...) so it won't work too well for video or audio editing, but for basic storage, it is absolutely perfect.
Summary: I have had four of these drives. Three of them have crashed over the course of a year and a half. Maybe bad luck, not sure. My Passport is still going strong. I really liked the cord function on it, which drove me to it in the first place.
Compact, solid, quiet, short cable but attached to side.

Summary: I use this occasionally to back up my home movies. I have only had it a couple of months so cannot comment on its longevity. The small size (109 mm x 74 mm x 19 mm, excluding the cable attached to the side, which adds 100 mm to the width) is convenient and very portable.
Summary: I'm completely dissatisfied with LaCie and their recovery company d2recovery. My external hard drive Rikiki is 6 months old and failed!!! It's in the warranty time but yet, apart from quoting an enormous price for the back up from the hard drive that clearly failed due to a connection problem, I...
Summary: I own several LaCie disk drives, and I was content with LaCie until I needed to contact LaCie customer service. Then my opinion of LaCie degraded dramatically. Rather than describe my disappointing interchange with customer service, I'll refer you to the CustomerServiceScoreboard website where you...
Summary: I am very happy with this hard drive. I was looking for the most compact and lightweight 1 TB external hard drive to use on my long travels where every gram in the backpack counts. This one was the most lightweight I could find.
