Summary: I probably have a lemon but my experience is not good. Two days after using the unit, it died. Dead as a doornail. Needless to say I had moved data onto the drive which is now lost because I was in the early stage of setting my system up. Most of the data I have elsewhere...Oh well.
Summary: I hate this drive. I hate LaCie for making this drive. I will never buy LaCie again. These are my reasons. 1. Software RAID. For the size and price of this thing you'd think they'd super fit it with a rad internal hardware RAID controller. No, they don't. The RAID is controlled by your OS.
Summary: LaCie was one of the better drive manufacturers... over a decade ago. They are coasting on their reputation and design, while foisting off rapidly failing products and making their warranty service to troublesome, expensive and ultimately unhelpful to bother with.
Summary: The Hard Drive was as described. Matched up with the new iMac using Thunderbolt. I had some problems with the VISA buying the item, but the company worked with me to hold the unit until I was able to clear things up. Good transaction, in the end.
