Summary: I have two complaints about LaCie. The first is that the supplied power cord failed after a few days of use. Opening a service ticket online was easy but the knuckleheads who respond don't seem to know anything.
Summary: In less than a month after my purchase I got a shocking notice from my computer that my LaCie External HD on my desktop could not be found. Evidently unknown to me, these drives have a nasty history of power supply failures.
Summary: I have a 250GB drive from lacie and no problems so when I NEEDED MORE SPACDE I BOUGHT THIS DRIVE. As others they 1st replaced the adaptor then I had to send it back in. They "fixed" it. It started giving trouble right away then settled down for ...

Summary: I would love to give this a better rating. But this is the best I can do. Bought this LaCie less than 1.5 years ago. Set it up, plugged it in, and worked just fine on my Mac. It was used as a backup drive and a place to store larger files. And everything worked well for 1.5 years.
Summary: I had previous experience with LaCie which was very good and their tech service quickly solved my problem plus the reviews here were good. So I bought this drive. This drive is formated for the mac and works great right out of the box with my mac.
Summary: I bought two of these (about a week apart), first one is OK, the other lasted long enough to (quick) formal and assign a name, then it died. The plus points: Looks good, has two FireWire 800 ports (so can be daisy-chained), can throw big lumps of data at it without it getting too hot.
