Good external drive

Doug, Amazon
24 March 2011
  • Summary: I needed a bootable external drive because the internal drive on my Imac is failing. This drive was easy to set up and is working fine. The firewire 800 connection is fast enough to use it as a startup drive. It also has FW400 and USB connections, which can be handy.

Works well, but sqeaky

Anonymous, Newegg
24 December 2010
  • Summary: the noise: hard drives are expected to make noise when busy. However, this one is louder and is quite different from the usual head movement noise. Higher in pitch.
  • Pros: Cheap, Good looking
  • Cons: Makes noise when under heavy load

Works as expected

Ivan L., Newegg
27 November 2010
  • Summary: Very simple but cool design. This doesn't affect the performance, but I had hoped the blue light would glow through the front plastic instead of just out the bottom.
  • Pros: A variety of interfaces, and includes all possible cables for those connections. Writes fast, reads faster. Haven't had it long enough to say much more.. it works as expected.
  • Cons: The only real downside, and the reason I give four stars, is the fairly loud clicking sound from time to time.

Our first failed drives out of the box

3PBN, Newegg
28 September 2010
  • Summary: We have 21 external Lacie drives and have never had a failure. They've always been fast and reliable. They take the punishment of dusty, hot, cold environments and the bumps of the road. We treat them as nicely as we can, but they do get a quite a work out.
  • Pros: Normally, tough and reliable.
  • Cons: We ordered two more of these drives but when we tried to format them, the one drive hung about 75% of the way through and the other one appeared to format fine but when we tried to use it there was only 10K available space and, of course, it was unusable. The electrical plugs have been changed wi...

i've had it for a while

Victor A., Newegg
9 December 2009
  • Summary: The Price is good, especially for the fact that you get all 3 connectors, 1TB and it looks nice. (don't wipe this with a dry cloth!)
  • Pros: So I've had this thing for about 1 year exact, and so far I've only managed to get about 400Gb of the 1Tb, so if your looking for space, you've found it. The eSATA makes transfers fast, the IEE a little faster then USB, but even the USB is fast enough if your not in a hurry. It looks nice, the bl...
  • Cons: It stayed quite for about 10 months, but as i chewed up hard drive space, the fan decided to kick it up a notch and now its much much louder then it used to be. (basically from inaudible to to a high pitched loud PC fan, though its nothing that some TV at regular volume wont drown out) The case p...

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.

Great drive, worth the money!

A. Castelano, Amazon
23 September 2009
  • Summary: This drive has a very fast transfer rate (at least when using the Firewire interface), runs quietly and cooly, and looks great without looking like some kind of space ship. Not to mention has loads of room.
