Lacie Is Total GARBAGE

Monty L., Newegg
3 April 2013
  • Summary: This was a trial run, and Lacie FAILED critically. We will not be using ANY Lacie products indefinitely. This issue has destroyed your reputation completely, and we will be sure to let others know to stay away from the HORRIBLE products and "support" of LaCie.

Works As Advertized

PC Connection Express
8 September 2011
  • Summary: We've got this 10 TB model set up at our studio, to store work-related data and backups. It works very well.
