Crashes and self ejects with single transfers over 2GB
20 August 2014
Summary: The hard drive crashes and self ejects with larger files. I work with raw pictures and have been unable to get the drive to transfer more then 2GB at a single transfer with out the drive crashing. So if you work with larger amounts of data this can be very annoying. When the data is on the drive seems to work with out problems. This problem is systematic also, meaning that the drive crashes on the same location every time.
Too expensive, there are better and cheaper similar items

Summary: This product would be really interesting if it were in fact portable, I mean, if it were bus-powered instead of necessitating a cord (for example, minipros of up to 480 ssd thunderbolt are bus-powered, a 480 would cost 460 dollars, why not buy 2 of them?). But if you really want something more potent than a 480Gb ssd thunderbolt 1, well this question is a no-brainer: buy instead by 999 dollars a portable pegasus J2 with 512Gb ((the 256 version is half the price and there...
Summary: This caddy EATS DRIVES!!!! I've had Lacie drives power supplies go bad and create a scare but this is on a whole new level. The first time it happened I chalked it up to a bad drive. It happens. The SECOND time it happened I figured it was bad luck. THIRD time was the charm - I just lost 2.5TB and a months's worth of work. It randomly popped up an 'improperly ejected' warning and *poof* everything was gone.
Summary: Sorry to say that this did not work for me. It was immediately seen by the system and i began a back up process. Then the the disk dismounted itself then the system crashed. tried this a couple of times but it never stabilized.
Summary: Just as everybody I thought this disk could run at light speed. Regrettably it doesn't. Advertised transfer data is 180 MBytes/s and the real one is 28 MBps. I've learned from Amazon forums and other blogs about the poor quality of Lacie's recent models, and the even poorer customer "support". In my case, many defective issues are present in the disk, like the fact that one of the partitions is not recognized by this Mac. What was the answer from Lacie??
Summary: Cuidado, peligro con Lacie. A nivel efectivo, el soporte es un señor que te dice que mires el manual. Si no sabes montarlo, te aguantas. Sin indicaciones no pude ponerlo a funcionar con todo lo que promete el catalogo. Se me mofaron y desistí de perder más tiempo. Después, cuando al cabo de unos pocos meses se paró, me indicaron que se lo enviara pero, pedería toda la información, que a ellos les daba lo mismo.
Pros: Es muy bonito
Cons: Complicadisimo de instalar, el No - soporte no da soluciones, ni ateiende adecuadamente
