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.
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: 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".
Pros: Lots of storage. Nice administration interface. Easy to use.
Cons: The Lacie power supplies are garbage. I've had 2 go bad already and now Lacie won't replace it under warranty. My only option is to buy a replacement at $35 or lose all my data. Search the web and you will find that this is VERY common. Spend your money elsewhere unless you don't mind having to b...
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.

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?).
Summary: At least a product I received looks unreliable with My Macbook pro 15 which has thunderbolt 2. the Speed of RAID0 has been going down than I received. This is more detail result of my testing, please take a look and find a proper way to figure out this. this is really seriously annoying to my work.
