"Please please please do not buy this product."

  • Pros: Cannot think of one.
  • Cons: Besides it freezing up my MacBook Pro when left plugged in and on, you will loose everything on it if it is knocked over while running.

Hate these drives

Joseph, rakuten

  • 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. One problem that I have found consistent is the drive mounts and you can view your data but when it comes to transferring the data it freezes. Really stinks when you loose your media.

Crashed in 4 months...

mattito, Amazon

  • 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...or I will have to pay a small fortune to have a computer magician work some magic. I am hoping for the latter. I will never buy a La Cie product again.

The top five reasons NOT to buy a Lacie D2

SB, Amazon
8 August 2010
  • Summary: I have purchased eight of these drives over the years at about six month intervals as more storage is needed. Starting with a 250gb and ending with a 1TB about four months ago. I love to multitude of connection options, the speed of the drive and the nifty rack you can mount them in. The one thing that trumps all of that is this drive's 100% fail rate. I know from experience that this drive will fail between 24 and 36 months.

"All show no go"

ynkefn999, CNET

  • 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.

Crapped out after nine months

J. Baker, Amazon
1 June 2010
  • Summary: This is the last LaCie drive I will ever buy. It is the third one in a row that has died on me. This one lasted 9 months. The other two both died in under two years. They just do not make a quality product anymore. Also, LaCie will not send you a new drive under the warranty until you send them the old one first, and they spend a lot of time messing with it.

Worked well for six weeks, then died.

Randy T. Merkel, Amazon
28 May 2010
  • Summary: Purchased a 1.5 TB drive as a Time Machine backup device for my wife's iMac. Installed easily and worked well enough... for six weeks. Will not mount, makes a 'zit... zit... zit... sound. Power Cycled... everything. No change. Drive is dead. Reported to tech support on the Friday before Memorial Day. We'll see how long it takes to get a replacement.

Inconsistent connection on my Mac Pro in eSata mode

Claude G. Budin Juteau "CGBCOMS", Amazon
17 February 2010
  • Summary: I bought a LaCie 2TB D2 Quadra hard Disk from Amazon a few weeks ago and have gone through 3 of them and none of them worked properly using the eSata port. They worked fine with all the other connectors (Firewire 400 and 800 and USB 2) but eSata seems to be a problem for this model. I installed an eSATA Extender cable from Newer Technology to take advantage of the two extra eSata port of the Mac Pro and was able to first connect my Western Digital My Book Studio Edition...

  • Summary: I am not too computer savvy. I call Lacie tech group about connecting problems Not helpful at all. The guy was so short with me that I felt like I was asking the most stupid question. His remarks was I should have bought a simpler drive that I would ...
