  • Summary: Out of the box, this is a pretty easy unit to work with. After reading up on various RAID configurations, I decided to reconfigure the unit to RAID5+ spare mode. I haven't had any problems thus far, the speed is good, there's almost no noise, the drive is made of solid aluminum, and looks great.

  • Summary: We use several of these units at our office, all daisy chained and linked together. Our editing software and projects require a phenomenal amount of storage space. These units are very reliable, the software that comes with it is excellent and easy to use. The best thing for us is that these units run very cool and quiet - a massive bonus in a small office!

Works as intended..

Ian M., Newegg
22 January 2014
  • Summary: It's great. It's expensive, but this is what I bought it for- it does what its intended to do and streams fine from it in USB 3.0
  • Pros: Holds more than enough at RAID 5 (the 12 TB model = 8.80GB or close to that). Pretty easy setup, no issues few weeks in. It's backing up my home media collection.
  • Cons: Nothing major I can report on.. its heavy, so just concerned for the glass desktop it sits on. Light on the front, a la HAL, comes on from time to time, but its not major. Have the drives in sleep after 10 mins.. so maybe something is pinging it.

Garbage

Rene R Ramirez, Amazon
31 December 2013
  • Summary: This is the worst excuse for a backup drive I have ever used! What a piece of crap! Slowed down my new server to the point where I was about to re-image the server. As a last resort, unplugged the backup drive and things are moving again. None of the data I tried to back up was successfully backed up. I couldn't even reformat the drive as Windows keeps saying cannot reformat. The Lacie desktop manager won't even recognize it.

Worked fine until it failed

Richard Gonzalez, Amazon
22 December 2013
  • Summary: My company bought this unit for a big commercial project we had to ship to another city. We spent 2 days transferring 8TB worth of data, then that night, it just stopped mounting on any system. Our tech department had determined something had burned out on the motherboard, and we had to use a slow tedious disk recovery process to save our files. It may have just been a lemon, but I can't recommend this.

THE WORST

RON W., Newegg
22 December 2013
  • Pros: says it holds 12tb but is set for 9tb and when I changed it , it doesnt let my computer start up , it locks unless its off at start up , also has othe stuff like a private block you can add a password to but deleted my pictures and never could get into that after install
  • Cons: nothing good about this at all .
