I totally recommended it

Summary: Although there is a metallic sound from inside when drive is shaken deliberately, I am happy with the purchase. I choose this heat sink design from Lacie after my previous HDD died of heat. I recommend this heat sink design if you live in warm climate.
Summary: It does what it is supposed to do, but my wife complains about the whining sound it emits. It didn't bother me until she pointed it out. So, if a persistent whining noise bothers you, I suggest you look elsewhere. (Although, of course, I could have had a defective model.
Summary: This has been very reliable over the last couple years I've used it. One factor kept me from giving it 5 stars... When I did some cleaning around my computer desk, I unplugged and cleaned all my devices.
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 use the following system: iMac Intel Core 2 Duo 2.93 GHz with OS X Version 10.6.7. I purchased this drive to be my new time machine and to hold some video files. The read / write speed is great, the only thing that caused a problem was the constantly glowing blue light on the button in the front.
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.
