Nice big data storage unit

Cadnr, Amazon
29 September 2014
  • Summary: Great device for those with large data storage needs. Love the design - clean looks and easy to use. Set the RAID mode, format and away you go - simply plug in on USB 3 and it shows up in your OS as a single large disk drive.

Awesome product and company

thiink, Amazon

  • Summary: Amazing, and i have three of these units, and they are filled up. I've only had two drives fail in the time that I have had them since 2009, but since it is RAID, I just have to purchase a backup drive for it. The first one was free because LACIE gives you a warranty, so they exchanged it for free.

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.

Good purchase.

Michael H., Newegg
23 November 2013
  • Summary: I have had this about 3 weeks now and am happy with this purchase. More money than I wanted to spend, but given the alternatives to backing up the 7TB I currently have, I am very happy. I backup all my pc images to it and rsync to an smb mount all of my media from a Linux NAS.
  • Pros: It works as advertised. (not all the common these days) Attached to W7 on USB3 with hdtach I get 182MB/s avg read. Raid configuration is easy Price isn't outrageous when you consider the cost of 4 - 4TB drives.
  • Cons: Sleeps and wakes up randomly sometimes. I suspect this is a W7 issue and not the device. Takes a little longer than I would like to wake up, but faster than my WD raid usb drive. Not a drive issue, just physics, spin up the drives and verify raid. I doubt it could be any faster with mechanical dr...

Almost Perfect!

Travis, B&H Photo
7 November 2013
  • Excerpt: The perfect storage and use for Video Editing. The only quirk I have with this is no Thunderbolt. However, it offers USB3 and Firewire 800. Perfect for a Mac. My MacPro workstation only has Firewire 800, but my iMac and Macbook Pro have USB3.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast Connectivity, Quiet, Reliable
  • Cons: None I Can Think Of Now
