Summary: I bought one of these just over a year ago to back up my laptop. I only used it every 2-3 weeks at most and now it is not recognised by the laptop. This seems to be a common problem with these things. LaCie make it as difficult as possible to contact them despite the supposed 2 year warranty. There is no phone number EXCEPT for sales so they can sell them to unsuspecting customers. I will not buy any future products from LaCie.
Summary: I purchased the drive on Friday 25 Oct 2013 as a backup drive. Being a videographer I needed something large and reliable to store my work. The drive was great for about a week but today I plugged it in and there was NO POWER. The drive is completely dead. I tested out the plug and there is no problem there so either the drive OR power supply has a fault.
Summary: Cable that connects hard drive to computer keep disconnecting so I get warnings that I have detached hard drive without dumping and am going to damage hard drive. Bought new cable. It is better but it still detaches more than I would like. This happens with both the lacie drives I have.
Summary: This hard drive had to be returned as it would not function. Disappointing as I had always thought that LaCie was one of the better makes. The best things about this purchase was the way Amazon dealt with the return & the promptness with which they refunded to my credit card.
Summary: Needed more space for my collection of music. Transferred years worth of music. Deleted music from old drive. Next day my computer would not read the new drive and after trying everything the only thing to do was reformat it and now i have lost my entire music collection. I have spent a fortune over the years and it's all gone in one day. DO NOT BUY. THIS IS TOTAL CRAP!!!
Summary: WILL ONLY DO 1 THING IF YOU DOWN LOAD FILMS, THEN WHEN YOU GO AND RECORD A TV PROGRAMME IT DELETES THE FILMS. VERY POOR AND VERY UNHAPPY AT THAT PRICE. NOT WHERE TO FIND CONTACT NUMBER TO PHONE EVEN.
Summary: I've had this HD for a few months and everything works great. As with all hard drives, you never get the full 2TB and after formatting I have around 1.8TB. I have tested it with both USB2 and USB3 and speeds are great with both. Having seen that other LaCie drives have been prone to overheating in the past, I have been keeping an eye on the temperature during large transfers and this drive never gets more than warm to the touch.
Summary: Tämä oli lähemmäs kymmenes LaCien siirtokovalevy, jonka olemme perheen eri koneisiin vuosien varrella Verkkokaupasta ostaneet. Sitäkin pettyneempiä olimme tavaraan, jonka käytettävyys sekä mekaanisesti että softien osalta on suorastaan ala-arvoista. Hirveä pettymys! Hämmästys oli melkoinen, kun avasin paketin: ei minkäänlaisia ohjeita, ei ohjelmistolevyjä. Kai tämä on sitten ympäristöystävällistä, muttei kovin käyttäjäystävällistä.
