Summary: Love this back-up hard drive. It's held up without any issues for about 4 years for me, and I use it for frequent back-ups for my iMac. Recommended for anyone looking for ample, reliable storage for computer data.
Summary: My husband and I bought two external hard drives - one for each of us. Somehow, I ended up with the 1TB Lacie HD. This HD is fairly quiet - you may just hear a whisper of a fan occasionally. There is a blue light that lets you know when it is turned on. The transfer rate is pretty good.
