stopped working after 2 years

Summary: While this drive has not left my desk in the 2 years it's been in service, it has failed. No bumps, drops, or shaking - just gave up. I know they're going to die eventually, but 2 years seems too short.
Summary: So I get my drive on Wednesday and all is well. Nice look, easy to set up and partition on my Mac. Once set up, I transferred ~200 gigs to it- no noise at all. Very quiet. Woke up the next morning and click, click, click. Opened a ticket with Lacie for a replacement. Waiting to hear back from them.
Great drive / 1 YEAR (Carbonite) Backup DOA on Vista x64

Summary: I purchased the LaCie drive over others because of the 1 YEAR UNLIMITED backup. This drive looks great, runs quiet and was a breeze to install on my 3 year old XP Media Center PC. With the software, drive and service it's a great bundle - in theory...
Summary: This product arrived with two pin shaver style plug. It took two weeks to obtain a three pin UK compatible adapter from the supplier. Microsoft's Windows 7 hardware compatibilty website says that it is compatible. The manufacturer does not make any such claim.
Summary: First, the drive looks great. Like a small screaming black obelisk; very stylish. I wish I could turn the cool blue glow down or off though, but that's pretty minor. Although it's shiny, it hasn't picked up any fingerprints from my normally sweaty fingertips yet.
