Excerpt: I've owned two LaCie hard drives and I'll never buy another one. The drives wouldn't work very well, especially the Cloudbox. Nine times out of ten I would have huge network problems with the drives.
Pros: - Easy to set up - Fast enough to serve up movies to a media center
Cons: - Poor power supply. I have gone through 3 already. Have now ordered a fourth. I do not have any other devices that have this problem.

Excerpt: I love this drive. it is fast and has been reliable. Can set it as a Raid 0 or Raid 1. Or rather could until 10.11 El Capitan was released. It is a software raid which has always been configured using Disk Utility. In the latest OS El Capitan, all you can do is write or delete files.
Excerpt: LaCie got almost every thing right with this drive. I love editing up to 4K content and large projects while traveling. Hands down, the best feature of this drive is its storage capacity and speed combined with such a portable size.
Excerpt: I ordered it on monday evening and it arrived to Iceland on Friday morning. I must say this is the best investment for my video editing with FCPX and I do not forget the great service from Adorama which I give 5 stars.
Pros: Easy To Install, Fast, Highly Compatible, Perfect, Quiet, Reliable
Excerpt: This is a very specific piece of equipment. Not everyone needs it, not everyone can afford it (very expensive for just 1TB of storage), but those who have it know its benefits. I am a photographer and do very little video editing.
