Fast but noisy

L. Alain, Amazon
31 January 2014
  • Summary: The speed for transferring files are very fast. Unfortunately, the fan inside the enclosure is noisy. I'm wondering if I can replace the fan with another one.

Fast, fairly cost-effective way to get Thunderbolt storage

Joe Shapiro, Amazon
22 September 2013
  • Summary: I got this to speed my workflow for the 48 Hour Film Project and it didn't disappoint. I modified it - and voided the warranty - by removing the two hard drives and replacing them with SSDs. About doubled the performance and removed the concern of dropping it and having a head crash.

Nice design, wish it were quieter.

Jamie in Charlotte, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought a refurbished one of these. Gets pretty good speeds when in raid-0, topping out at about 195 MB/s. The problem that I have with it is that the tiny little fan on the back of it is pretty loud (I can hear it over my mac pro and the fan in my office).

Next-level storage and speeds

Richard, Amazon
20 October 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this LaCie Little Big Disk Thunderbolt drive in a 2TB capacity in order to edit video on my MacBook Pro with Retina Display. I had previously been using an older FireWire 800 drive with a Thunderbolt to FireWire adapter, but found the speeds to be abysmally slow.

USB 2 "only"

Daryl C., Newegg
8 December 2010
  • Summary: Was initially looking for a USB thumbdrive about 20 gigs or so for doing backup/transfer from my old XP laptop to new Win7 machine. Found this drive and for a few bucks more, you get a LOT more space (compared to thumbdrives). So, went for this instead.
  • Pros: - Plug n play for USB 2.0 connection. - Cable free! - Seems fast enough for what it is - Small, light - Reasonably priced
  • Cons: - Plastic insert covering the front is rather cheesy, but seems to work ok. - Didn't mount on my USB 1.0 older XP machine

User Review

David S., Newegg

  • Summary: On the strength of the Petite I've ordered a LaCie Grand (1Tb) for use at home. I'll be using the Petit for traveling.
  • Pros: Plug-and-play. Small, sleek, seems to do the job. Ideal for traveling.
  • Cons: No USB Boost for 64-bit Windows OS (I assume that this actually works for my 32-bit Xp; not an option for my Win7-64)

Lacie Petit - good to go

Brian E., Newegg
18 June 2010
  • Summary: I have two of these drives (for 4 months now) that I use for backing up a server every day. They do not get hot and I have no issues. One is accessed frequently with small bits of data, the other saves 30-150 GB image files every couple of days.
  • Pros: Sleek design, mobile.
  • Cons: None.

Nice job

S. Lieu "Future Rockstar", Amazon
25 February 2010
  • Summary: I have bought products from LaCie before. I do like that it's very good at what it does. Simple mechanics of plug and play. I did have to reformat it though so that I could play videos from the hard drive on my PS3 and 360. That's about the only grudge I have about it.

Nice size

Matt Murphy, Amazon
11 February 2010
  • Summary: Okay, I just got this and have to say that I am impressed by the size and sleek design of the HD. After formatting the hard drive, I was less than impressed to see that there was only 465.17 GB available for storage. I just thought potential buyers would like to know that.
