at all hours of the day and night for what often seems like no reason - this is the drive for you

B Aware "B Aware", Amazon

  • Summary: I've owned dozens of LaCie drives over the years, going all the way back to 1994, and in that time I've never encountered anything as disappointing rg as this drive or its NAS cousin.

Works exactly as intended!

Smoores, B&H Photo
18 November 2014
  • Excerpt: I have 3 of the drives setup as a RAID 5, and the remaining two setup as a RAID 1. Works exactly as expected, and thunderbolt 2 is incredibly fast. The RAID management software has a bit of learning curve, but once figured out, it's pretty straight forward.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast Connectivity, Versatile

Not a good drive at all.

Media I., Amazon
10 October 2014
  • Summary: I own a video production company. My client bought one of these hard drives for me to use for editing their footage. The drive constantly ejected itself from my MacBook Pro. Then after a couple of weeks it stopped mounting and didn't work any longer, so it had to be returned.

Not ready for prime time

movielover "Jon", Amazon
22 September 2014
  • Summary: Unfortunately, this product did not appear ready for prime time, or any time. I wanted the speed and protection of a RAID 5 array as well as the reliability of LaCie's products. However, the drive ejected itself several times from my Mac desktop before it would not mount at all.

DOA

Dandydoc, Amazon
4 July 2014
  • Summary: Dead on arrival. It did not power up. I connected it on July4 and there is no support today. I have to say that it is solidly built and the case is nicely machined. It is too expensive for a paperweight however, so I will have to return it and try again.

Performs well and looks good with a Mac

Michael W. Konrad, Amazon
4 June 2014
  • Summary: I needed to first use this to extract information from drives of a failed machine, so replaced installed drives with those from old Mac. Was able to retrieve information. Then reinstalled the original drives. Set up a mirror RAID for TimeMachine. The other 3 drives are free to store videos etc.
