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. I was then sent a replacement with the assurance that it would resolve the problem. Well, now the replacement power supply has failed too.
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 purchased two of these drives at the same time several months ago. I rarely make the time to write product reviews, but I'm disappointed enough with these to make it worth writing this. Several weeks ago, the first drive died after dropping from its vertical position to its horizontal position (one edge of the drive was touching the table the whole time. The other edge fell about 4 inches.

Pros: When this drive actually mounted, it was great. Fast. I used it to backup my design files and store 200gb of music, which I streamed flawlessly to my work computer.
Cons: After just over a year, my iTunes couldn't locate the music files. I restarted my machine and my drive, it remounted. iTunes played music for about 10 minutes, then drive beeped a few times and it was done.
Pros: It was easy to set up and it is a fast drive.
Cons: It would sometimes just not be accessible. I would have to disconnect it, power it back up, wait 15 seconds, then plug the drive back in for it to be seen by the PC. The slightest jolt caused it to crash.
