Summary: The drive has worked reliably and was very easy to install. It's case design matched up well with my iMac. The dimensions and foot print of the product and great and storage space is reasonable (2 TB). LaCie phone support was only fair.
Summary: This hard drive saved my life! Very fast start up and FireWire makes this great for video editing and digital imaging software. I used this baby to store and edit about 80 hours of 1080p footage and FinalCutPro/Premiere files and it kept right on chugging.
