Reviews and Problems with LaCie d2 Quadra Hard Disk
Showing 1-10 of 61
Horrible junk, especially for the price
20 October 2014
Summary: Conflicts with Mac - locks up system. After three years of extremely light duty, only running for minutes at a time to backup photos - it's now grinding and groaning as if failure is imminent. Horrible junk, especially for the price.
Summary: I have bought two LaCie external drives and never again. You are paying a premium for the nicely designed case. Don't do it. It's the same hard drives other products use. And it wasn't the hard drives that failed. It was the circuit board.
Do not buy this drive until LaCie fixes the firmware!

Summary: I can echo the comments of several other reviewers of this drive. I have been happy with LaCie for years (with the exception of a series of short-lived power supplies they shipped with a d2 model a few years back). But this new model with USB 3.0 has major issues waking from sleep.
Summary: Over the past few months my company has purchased quite a few of these. The cost for the amount of space you get is great. Don't let that fool you into buying. We have lost 4 of these drives. They couldn't even make it through 6 months of use.
Summary: Beware of this product. After purchasing it in October of 2010, it now will not turn on/power up. I am in the process of contacting technical support. It looks like I either lost priceless videos of my sons first 6 months of life..
Summary: I bought two of these because of my past experience with LaCie which was basically good. The unit that this one replaced failed after about a year and LaCie quickly repaired it and it was still working (about 3 years) later when I bought these two (bigger drives).
