  • Pros: Looks great. Solid metal casing. Easy-to-use backup software.
  • Cons: Other than the fact that the Quadra failed without warning after one year of service, it worked fine. Fortunately, I was diligent with my paperwork and have warranty coverage.

  • Pros: I had SIX Lacie "Big Disks" over the past 2-3 years. They all still worked perfectly fine. Very reliable! I also love that you can stack them.
  • Cons: A little on the heavy, but then again its not as flimsy as a plastic Book.

"Good Drives, bad enclosures, horrible power unit. Loud."

11 October 2009
  • Pros: The Seagate drives inside are solid SATA 2. unit construction feel great. Nice design.
  • Cons: Large and unreliable power supply. Interface is sub-par. Enclosure is tight fit that can heat up lowering lifespan of drives. no fan. Aluminum acts as sound amplifier making drives very loud for not having a fun.

"Great external drive"

jrotholz, CNET
11 August 2009
  • Pros: Good price for a 500GB drive compatible with Firewire (800 & 400) and USB2. Looks good on desktop too. LaCie online tech support is great, friendly fast and accommodating (see below)
  • Cons: Power supply adapter failed after 1 year causing computer (iMac) to fail to recognize the drive. Lacie tech support diagnosed problem and replaced defective equipment. Drive works like a champ, again.
