too soon to tell

Joseph Torre, MacMall
27 January 2011
  • Conclusion: This is my second Lacie hard drives, again it failed on setup to install the software that came with the drive. I needed to go into utilities and set the drive up manually. Putting that aside I am satisfied with this Drive so far.

LaCie D2 Quadra? A Product Developer & Mac User's Review

Todd Palmer "Product Developer", Amazon
2 February 2010
  • Summary: I'll be brief on this. I bought a 2D Quadra 1T over the holiday to bolster my existing back-up systems. Two months later, this new hard disk failed. Two issues for perspective customers: 1) Some Mac users are finding mount problems with LaCie products. I recommend doing your research on OS compatibility prior to purchasing.

LaCie d2 Quadra Hard Disk 1 TB

R. Ahrens, Amazon
7 January 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this drive 6 months ago. The purchase was based on perceived quality and price. There are several hard-drives available for less money but the LaCie had a very good warranty and I had a recommendation from a friend. The style is not much to look at but the ribbed aluminum case is quite functional. It runs much cooler than my Western Digital external drive. I believe this will add to the life of the drive.

Died early ....good support

  • Summary: This unit failed after a year, but La Cie was very responsive and replaced it. I use it for my Time Machine, so the backup data was lost, and I felt vulnerable for the few days it took for the replacement to arrive. But, I was able to get through to ...

French Quirkiness

J. Kuony, Amazon
5 December 2009
  • Summary: I have heard nothing but good things about this brand. So I trust that in the end I will be very pleased with this item but at present I continue to have difficulties with my back ups. They appear to be getting interrupted and then aborted. I must make the time to chase this down with Technical Support. On my initial call to LaCie Technical support I was provided the best support I have ever received from a manufacturer.

An unexpected issue

schmitz, Amazon

  • Summary: The hard drive works great. I haven't had any performance issues with it whatsoever, but ever since I've had them plugged into my system (2006 Intel iMac) it's bogged down my computer for some reason. What I mean by "bogged" is that any other device that I plug into my computer (ipod,thumb drive, card reader) takes a few minutes to be mounted to my desktop and from there it's always a slow transfer of data as well!

Good - but . . .

D. M. BLACK, Amazon
6 August 2009
  • Summary: This is the best price for size that you can get with a top-of-the-line manufacturer. But their claim that the unit will automatically turn on and off in sync with your computer is false. It only does it with older PCs - not state-of-the-art Apple Macs. And they're 'pissy' about being called on it. Bad form. Bad business.

Great Drive but...

Doug in SC "Doug & Trish", Amazon
18 February 2009
  • Summary: I like the drive but one of the factors that lead me to buy the LaCie was the free for one year online storage. I checked it out and the cost after the year was good so I bought it. Signed up for the free one year and THEN was told that they did NOT support Macintosh but that it was coming soon. That was early December. I suppose you can attribute just about any time period to "coming soon" that could include months or years.

Could be better

Michael Scipione, Amazon
26 August 2008
  • Summary: As a Lacie user of some years at work and home, I recently retired the LaCie d2 (it was failing to initialize) in favor of this LaCie d2 quadra. My impressions of this new drive are: 1) Same look, more space, does not auto turn off when I shutdown my pc. 2) The "One touch" button is unnecessary (blue light button use to be the power button). 3) The 3 setting power switch on the back is confusing. Bottom line: The price is right, the features are not.
