I don't Trust LaCie anymore

That Guru, Amazon
15 July 2012
  • Summary: I bought this drive, and it worked okay for a while. i treated it well, left it at home, never dropped it or spilled anything on it, and removed it when t began heating up. eventually it stopped appearing on my desktop. ran disk warrior, fixed it. a month later, guess what. it dead, and no software can fix it. i lost all my photos, music, and files thanks to this company. LaCie, we're done. Get you c**p off the market before you destroy someone else's memories.

Third Drive -- Still No Joy

Thomas Gresham, Amazon
1 March 2012
  • Summary: I am now using my third Lacie Thunderbolt drive. The first would run, but would not mount. The second would not even start up. Would not spin up. The third (Lacie replaced the first one twice) runs, but there are two problems -- so far. 1. It's really loud! The fan sounds as though the unit will levitate. I can't use it in the video editing / audio studio it was planned for. 2. When I plug the second display into the Lacie drive, I get strange colors.

Steer clear: Slow and fragile

andreas838, Amazon
30 October 2010
  • Summary: Have been a real fan of Lacie external hard drives for years. But, recently I've seen this company put some real duds on the market, including this drive. It requires too much electricity so that one needs to use 2 cables. It's slow. And lastly, it's wobbly and fragile, now just failing on me completely.

Very bad and unreliable product

Sam, Amazon
1 July 2010
  • Summary: This is a very unreliable technology from Lacie/Apple My lacie 2tb littlebig disk started under performing after 3days. Its now Giving speed in the range of 20-30 MBPS Changed cables, laptop etc. even reformatted the drive. The product doesn't come with any international warranty. I purchased this product from USA. I am currently in India with this HDD. Lacie says I am eligible for replacement but I have to send back to USA. It was good till it was working.

  • Summary: It worked the 1st three times maybe, then all the sudden my computer didn't recognize it. I can't get to anything I saved onto it. I am still communicating with the lacie service techs trying to figure out why I cannot open it. I have pictures on there that LUCKILY I did not delete.

What a great drive, for 2 1/2 months. Then it smelled like it was burning.

Eric Snider, Amazon
25 March 2008
  • Summary: This drive seemed AWESOME. Most reviews were good here on Amazon and the price was right. So I ignored the 1-star reviews that said the drive became a brick after a few months. I bought the drive. It wasa great drive for 2 1/2 months. Then it stopped working. Now when I plug it in the light turns on to show it has power. Then it smells like something's burning. Pressing the power button does nothing. My computer can't see the drive.

Looks good, but fragile and won't last

Lemmy Caution, Amazon
12 February 2008
  • Summary: I bought this based on Lacie's overall good performance, the price and the looks of the machine. Initially, I was thrilled. It installed great and the extra storage was fantastic, especially for the price. I liked it so much, I bought a second one for work. Well, today (after having it less than a month), the drive fell about 2 inches from the ledge on my desk and the edge of the drive bumped my desk. A small bump, not a crash.

Didn't last long even with very occasional use

2ManyWords, Amazon
4 January 2008
  • Summary: I bought this drive four months ago strictly to do backups. It worked during very occasional use until today when it died completely with no warning. When I first used it I noticed substantial heat buildup and so made it a point to turn the drive off except when I was actually doing a backup. Over the course of four months I filled the drive to roughly 70% of its actual capacity and was doing a backup today when it froze up.
