Awesome drive with minor drawbacks

Vidit Bhargava, Amazon
25 October 2009
  • Summary: This is a beautiful looking drive. The Neil Poulton design speaks out with clean and sleek looks. It is glossy black and the blue light is outstanding. Neither Seagate's nor WD's external drives look so beautiful. PROS: 1. 1TB is a lot of space - great. 2. Beautiful, sleek design 3. Triple interface - USB, eSATA and Firewire 400 (more on this in a moment). 4. Power button - I like the idea of having a power button on the drive, Seagate does not put one..

Nice price for 1 TB backup drive

PhotoFan007, Amazon
14 July 2009
  • Summary: I bought this to replace one of my 500 GB LaCie backup drives, which is approaching its maximum capacity. In fact, I've purchased about ten of their drives over the years and have had good luck with them. I like that they are reasonably fast, perfectly rectangular (and can thus be stacked in a drawer, a real plus when you own many drives), reliable, and inexpensive.

Ordering another of the same...

Sleavowitz, Amazon
20 December 2008
  • Summary: Great little drive, I was pleased by the light weight (weighs half that of my aluminum-cased G-Drive 500GB, but then of course one is going to sacrifice durability), and it's fast enough for my purposes (media storage). I'm buying my 2nd one today - exact duplicate of the first, simply to back up the first one, and to allow me to remove it, put it in a nice little shock-resistant box I made, and haul my media collection around with me for accessing from the laptop or...

A geeks review of a backup drive

John Faughnan "John G Faughnan", Amazon
8 December 2008
  • Summary: I bought two of these for my rotating backups at a sale price of $120. I wasn't impressed by the case, but I was impressed by the 2 year limited warranty. La Cie has been around for a while, so this long a warranty suggests they expect the drive to last. That's all I care about. For the purposes of storage attached to my backup server performance is irrelevant. Some quick observations: 1. You could cut an artery on the case.

Beautiful enclosure, stackable

Kamcheung Sham "K. C.", Amazon
16 October 2008
  • Summary: I'm connecting two of these drives to a RAID controller to mirror my data through the eSATA connection. The drive has one of the most beautiful enclosures. When they're stack together with the blue LED shining on to each other, it creates quite an artistic feel. For those people who value esthetics, you shouldn't miss this one. The drive itself is working just as advertised. A drive is a drive. Hasn't failed on me yet.

Works well but a little noisy

rowdoc, Amazon
26 September 2008
  • Summary: I grew out of space to store my videos and captured footage. I bought this large capacity drive to solve that problem, and it has worked. It was very easy to install on my desktop Mac. It has worked flawlessly out of the box, and the price was very competitive. I have used it for about one month so far. I read reviews which told me that it was a little noisy and I thought that this would not bother me. I agree that the noise is not loud.

Reliable

J. K. Rd, Amazon
21 June 2008
  • Summary: So far, this has been a fairly reliable add-on to my system. Vista added the drivers automaticly and it seems to be working rather well. The transfers from drive to drive are a little slower than I'd like but over all a good buy for the price.
