Summary: I recently purchased this through Amazon; received in within four business days which was great. It's easy and simple to use and I would hightly recommend it. I was also especially greatful since a few weeks after I received this item I had to back up all of my computer files due to a virus which infected my computer. I was able to save all my files and return my computer to original factory settings; it's now operating exceptionally. Thanks LaCie!
Summary: I do alot of video, picture, marketing type stuff for work and many times the files are pretty big. Also, usually I end up with multiple copies or drafts of every project I work on along with multiple versions of all the source files I used to create it. So I bought this drive to store all the content that I need to keep but don't necessary access often, because of this I wanted something pretty cheap, which this is. Setup was non-existent.
Summary: I bought this over 2 years ago, at 150 dollars. I use it to backup my Bluray movies, and many other things. Ive used this HDD to its full capacity. No problem at all with overheating, it gets a little hot but never burning hot. The hard drive looks beautiful, very sleek and i like the contrast of the blue lighting.
Summary: I was thinking because this hard drive was made by a designer that the look would rule over function, but it didn't at all, it works perfectly and even has USB boost just no fire wire. No noise AT ALL and not hot. I've had it on since I got it and everything works perfectly on it and haven't had a problem yet. If your on the fence purchase this!
