The Blade Runner is amazing to look at and

Mark Burke, Amazon

  • Summary: When you think of backup drive attributes, you probably think of capacity, speed, ease of use and reliability. Aesthetics are not at the top of the list unless you work at LaCie. The Blade Runner is amazing to look at and, no, despite its heat sink appearance, it does not get noticeably warm. Unfortunately, reliability is probably at the top of most of our lists of requirements for a backup drive and, sorry to say, mine stopped working without warning after 11 months.

Don't Believe The Haters!

A. Turner, Amazon
18 April 2014
  • Summary: Plugged it in. Everything works like a charm. It makes an excellent backup drive. It's completely silent. My only criticism is the energy saver which sometimes causes a 2 or 3 second pause when waking from energy saver mode. But that's a pretty first world problem to have.

Doesn't work with Time Machine

MRMD, Amazon
10 March 2014
  • Summary: This drive doesn't work with Apple's Time Machine software. When you try to raise this with LaCie, they take the drive back, test it on a PC, and tell you it works. Then they send it back to you and it doesn't work. And so on. $320 down the drain….

Faulty and had to return it

Colin E. Manning "Colin M", Amazon

  • Summary: My drive was faulty and I had to return it. That shouldn't happen. I does look great. But a drive's first job is to keep data safe. I think there may be some issues with this product.

Form & FunctioN!

1 October 2013
  • Excerpt: More than just looks.. This 3.86gb drive was exactly what I needed as a send off gift for a architect friend who is leaving the country. Drive has been achieving excellent speeds with minimal bumbps along the way and has served its purpose wonderfully. Little on the heavy side at 4.4 lbs. but overall a fine purchase.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Compact, Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, High Capacity, Portable, Quiet

DOA with Write Errors, Lacking Documentation

smbkrn, Amazon
21 September 2013
  • Summary: Tried it on both a MAC and XP PC. PCs would recognize drive but the initialization program aborted with write errors. No documentation included other than a couple of pictures. Wasted time online only to realize drive was defective. Thankfully Amazon provides free shipping for returning defective merchandise.
