Highly unreliable drives. Not satisfied at all.

Ray Crosier, Amazon
29 October 2012
  • Summary: I purchased three of these over a couple month period. ALL of which have failed in one way or another within the first year or so of use. I purchased them to use as an additional backup device for three servers.

Warning to Mac Users: Stay away from Lacie

tamjm, Amazon
2 September 2011
  • Summary: Warning to Mac users: I purchased one Lacie Big drive 18 months ago, another Lacie Big drive 24 months ago. I just upgraded to Mac OS X Lion. Neither drive works after the upgrade. The Lacie web site said that the "solution" to this problem was to revert back to Snow Leopard. Not really a solution.

Don't buy this drive

Michael Williams, Amazon
15 January 2011
  • Summary: I owned my 1TB Lacie drive for about 18 months when it started making a horrible grinding noise. It was intermittent at first but then grew more and more constant and loud. It sounded like a bad bearing or fan or something. I transferred as much data as I could to another drive.

Quiet, until it got loud; won't buy LaCie again.

Mozel, Amazon
2 December 2010
  • Summary: I bought the 1TB version of this drive to store backups, music, photos. It was nice and quiet for about a year, then it began emitting a loud, constant, high-pitched whine. That makes it useless as a music server, since it would have to be on and whining loudly in the living room all the time in...

Hot, Slow, and poor customer support

Reviewer2010, Amazon
24 September 2010
  • Summary: I bought a couple of these hard drives. They run very hot and noisy. The customer support is the worst. I had one fail two days out of warranty and they wouldn't cover it. They offered me a "coupon" for a new unit. I lost everything. These are just poorly made hard drives. They use cheap parts.

Wicked J, Amazon
18 August 2010
  • Summary: I was soooooo happy with this product.... for a little over a year. I filled it with tons of stuff: movies, music, pictures, backup of the contents of my entire laptop, etc. And then it just up and died, taking a year's worth of data with it.

Failed within 24 hours

J. Bertz, Amazon
1 June 2010
  • Summary: Installed on a Friday. Said the drive was not mounted, finally got it to recognize. Ran a back up after trying to partition (would not allow), went to check the backed up data and the drive icon was nowhere to be found.
