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.
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.
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. My system is a new iMac; 16 Gb of memory, operating OS X 10.8.2
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".
Slow with USB, reformatting process not documented entirely in manual

Summary: I am not a techie by any standard but did not expect such a long and complicated set up process. First, the hard disk comes formatted for Macs. The manual did not tell me how to reformat it for PCs, which I found out after searching through all the disks that came with the unit.
Summary: I purchased this product because it claims that you can swap out a disk and safely rebuild the RAID 1 volume from the remaining disk by adding a new disk. I wanted this feature because I wanted to put a third disk into rotation so that I had an offsite backup.
Summary: Sorry Lacie. I have used your external harddrives for 5 years with no problems. I sent this drive back because it made me sick.The Big blue flashing light is like a strobe light, I tested the drive by loading photos and then pulled one of the drives to simulate a drive failure.
