Good drive. Reasonable price. USB, single port only.

  • Summary: Good drive. Nice design. Reasonable price. So far I've found the speed to be pretty good. Not smoking fast but pretty good. And 2TB is nice and big. The Mac found the drive quickly, and so did Time Machine. So it's very easy to get started. So why only 3 stars? Because of 3 drawbacks: 1. USB only. 2. One port only. You'll need a hub in order to connect this to another backup. So much for "backup your backup." (Amazon folks: show us a picture of the back of the drive). 3.

It's OK

  • Conclusion: For the price vs storage capacity I say "Bravo!". However, if I knew it was going to be this slow, I would have opted for the firewire version... it would have been worth the extra money, looking back. I should also say, I've had no problems thus far.

Maybe good, maybe not

  • Summary: I purchased this product looking for a simple backup drive that could perform incremental daily saves from one computer. The requirements are fairly simple ... just do it, at a reasonable speed, and keep working properly. The install was no problem, and I thought the included software was installing OK. Unfortunately it kept telling me I was probably using bootleg software.

So Far So Good

Zizerzazz, Amazon

  • Summary: It works right now after a few weeks of service. I have 7 Lacie Hard drives, ranging from 78gb to this 500gb. 2 of these, the 78, and a 160gb crapped out on me some ago. With 3rd party software, I was able to recover data from the 78gb, and reformat it to work again. I was not so fortunate with the 160gb. I was never able to recover data, or get it to work. It's a dust collector now. 2 failures out of 7 units mean my Lacie hard drives are failing 29% of the time.

LaCie, disque dur multimédia fidèle ?

  • Summary: . Ça y est, j’en ai enfin une grosse . Ça y est. Enfin. Depuis le temps que j'attendais ça. Un an et 4 mois de dur labeur avant de pouvoir le toucher. Le recevoir. En profiter. Me dire qu'il n'est pas si gros que ça en fait, mais que quand même j'aurais tord de m'en priver et de ne pas en tirer de satisfaction. Ça y est, en décembre 2009, ce fut la toute première fois. J'ai goûté aux joies du 13eme mois.
  • Pros: c'est quand même bien ces machins là
  • Cons: mais ça marche pas tout le temps
