Total junk!

Ryan Davis, Amazon
21 December 2013
  • Summary: The idea of this drive is great. I run a film festival and was playing the content from Quicktime H.264 1920x1080 23.98 FPS in the main theaters for the festival. But when we were getting ready for the second year of the festival, all my PlayHD drives started choking and were very unreliable and stuttering. I AM REALLY MAD ABOUT IT. Now, my only choice is to use them for slow speed backup USB storage. GARBAGE!!!!!

Nothing but trouble

compugal, Amazon
19 October 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this based on good reviews. It has been nothing but trouble. I could never automatically back up to the drive--had to do it manually. Within a year, it wouldn't turn on. Now I have no access to the data that I was able to save to the disk. Frustrating, and an expensive mistake. I'll be looking for a more reliable backup disk.

Bad Bad Bad

Eduardo, Amazon
5 March 2012
  • Summary: Don't Buy. I had one of these for about a year, and suddently it stoped working. The case had died, I looked up for several tutorials on internet only to find out how to open it, and save the hard disk. When I finaly succeded on these I find out that the HD is a SAMSUNG one. I bought a Sata-USB adaptor and it is working fine now. The case was too expensive for the time it last, better buy the disk alone and cased it yourself.

The LEVEL of customer service is ZERO... I HATE THIS

D Cooper "Don C", Amazon
6 October 2011
  • Summary: Do not waste your time. Seriously. I purchased this unit for a PC, and a d2 Quadra at the same time for a MacBook Pro. The LaCie Hard Disk plugged in nicely, then downloaded older software from the disk. When prompted to download an upgrade, I was hit with repeated error boxes. Went to the LaCie support site and downloaded the most current software for this unit. After a few reboots, it started working fine.

Defective once again

Bryan W. Regensburger "bregensb", Amazon
18 May 2011
  • Summary: The first one I bought was defective out of the box! I had to pay to ship it back to NYC, I receive the new one 3 months later the hard drive dies. I contacted LaCie and they wanted me to again pay to ship it back. I bought another harddrive from STAPLES installed into the external bay and it's been 7 months with out any issues . . . . so buy the bay without the harddrive and install your own .. It's alot cheaper!

Sudden death 2 weeks after warranty ended

L. Dane "daneosaur", Amazon
11 April 2011
  • Summary: I've used my LaCie hard disk for 2 years (+3 weeks) now. All was fine and dandy until just a few days ago when it went out in a puff of smoke (figurative, not literal). When I went to check my warranty I found that it is only covered for up to 2 years. Not cool. I'm a grad student (read: broke) and having to buy another just 2 years (+3 weeks!) later is really painful. I think I'll be going with a different brand next time.

Dropped Mount

KamRaHed, Amazon
22 February 2011
  • Summary: This hard drive would not stay mounted. It kept turning itself off. I wound up returning it and purchasing a different model from another vendor. I have had good results with other purchases from Amazon and with several LaCie drives that I own, but this one was a lemon.

Do Not Buy This Product

Captn Pete, Amazon
7 January 2011
  • Summary: Do Not Buy This Product! My first unit failed after only 2 months of operation backing up an iMac 27 using the Time Machine backup program. The replacement unit failed out of the box and was a refurbished unit from Le Cie. I finally received a new unit today and we will see how long this one lasts. If this unit fails in the next 12 months, I will request a full cash refund.

clicks and Alzhimers

K. Chong, Amazon
6 January 2011
  • Summary: I bought this drive and within a few weeks, it clicks and stopped working. I returned it and got a new drive without a problem but lost all my files. The second drive lasted 8 months and then after working fine one day, it couldn't access any of my files and after trying several other USB ports and a different computer, it somehow formatted itself!! Even if I got a new one under warranty, I couldn't trust it again for the third time. It's going in the bin.
