Nice price for 1 TB backup drive
15 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.
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.

Pros: great case, good size (a largish paperback; slightly narrower, lower and longer than my Mac Mini), on/off button, small adapter with a...
