Summary: I've been using this on a Mac. I heard other people were having issues, but also that the fix was to disable a setting that puts drives to sleep when idle. I did this on my home and workstation computers and have had no trouble.
Summary: I already stated in a few other reviews that I purchased some studio equipment over a year ago. This is one of the stuff I purchased for my studio. It's still working very well. I love the design and I also love the variation of cables included in the package.
Summary: It's frightening to think of losing all the photos I've collected over the years! I stored them on a Maxtor when I was on a PC but needed something Mac-friendly when I switched. By most accounts LaCie is the most Apple-rific.
Summary: I've purchased a few different brands of external hard drives and tend to return to Lacie. This particular model is a bit smaller than past models, which is great for reducing space on your desktop.
Summary: I received this 1.5TB Lacie drive this week and installed it on my system which is a Win7 Pro 64 Bit with a ASUS P6X58D Premium motherboard and i-Core 7/930 CPU. I chose the Firewire connection as it looked like it would be the fastest. Drive was found and proceded to do a Win7 backup.
Summary: I'm using the 1.5T Lacie with a MacBook Pro to backup data on Time Machine. It's fast (I'm using the Firewire 800 port) and well built. In my opinion the only downside is that it's a little noisy.
