Summary: I own 3 LaCie Neil Poulton drives. Shame on me. They look great. They are reasonably quiet. They come with a two year warranty. Plan on replacing them every two years to be safe. LaCie will do nothing for you if the drive is out of warranty.
Required erroneous configuring and would not hold data when transferred and stored onto it.

Summary: I was required to configure the LeCie when all you should have to do is plug it in and store to it. The configuration reassigned itself several times. The data transferred to it did not get stored to it and was lost in the transfer.
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.
Wanted to Love It....But got Drive Failure Instead
12 April 2011
Summary: I really wanted to love this drive, it's firewire 800 and runs silent but after the third day it started to make a beeping noise and a modem-like static noise on spin-up and spin-down indicating possible soon-to-be failure. Nope, not for me.
My product rating is NEGATIVE stars to LaCie Hard Disk Quadra 2 TB unit.

Summary: My product rating is NEGATIVE stars to LaCie Hard Disk Quadra 2 TB unit. I have ordered from Amazon LaCie Hard Disk Quadra 2 TB once on January, 19, 2011. I followed up the manufacturer's instruction to format the disk.
Summary: The Software from the hard drive tried to format it. I had an error "softare.exe missing" even if it was launched on a mac. So I turn it back on and try to use disk utilities. There was also a error during the formatting. I ejected it, turn it on, but it never mount again.
Eats Upper Hard Drive Every 3 Months, DO NOT BUY!!!

Summary: I purchased this unit in June because I wanted a compact, convenient RAID storage solution for my large collection of documents, music, and videos. Since then I have had TWO 1 TB hard drives fail in the upper slot of this unit. The Seagate OEM drive failed in just 3 months.
Summary: After 2 Months, I heard clicking sounds and the drive stopped working. I am waiting on tech support now to allow me to remove the drives without voiding the warranty, so I can get my data back.
Summary: I bought this disk based on LaCie's excellent reputation: what a mistake! The drive never worked: it would mount, but would not stay mounted long enough to perform even the most routine tasks. LaCie "repaired" it twice, but never made it work.
