Nice looking, but fatally flawed...

Roland Schumann, Amazon
15 July 2014
  • Summary: This drive lasted only 7 months as a Time Machine backup device on my network. Then, one day I received a notice on my Mac stating that the most recent backup failed. I inspected the drive and observed it was not powered on.

Do not Buy

Amazon Customer, Amazon
26 October 2013
  • Summary: It's all true. The drive just drops off the radar for no reason. The internal power connection is faulty. Nothing is worse than having one bum wire as the downfall of your 2 TB project. Buy G drives. They are the last truly reliable external hard drive manufacturer out there.

Attractive Case BUT NON FUNCTIONAL!!

JOSEPH LEE, Amazon

  • Summary: Brushed aluminum case very attractive But the first drive did not work. Lacie support STATED that that may happen and offered a very lengthy and technical fix. Sent it back for replacement. Got second drive, Same problem. Sent back for refund. Bought WD drive worked great, quickly OUT OF THE BOX.

returned after 1 day

Mike Page, Amazon
19 September 2013
  • Summary: I am returning this drive after 1 day of ownership. The drive dismounts spontaneously and a search for tech support on the La Cie website was nothing but an unending circle of links that always returned to the same web page. There is nobody home.

No more LaCie. Tired of their declining quality.

Garcia Marquez, Amazon
16 July 2013
  • Summary: LaCie's products have been failing miserably in the last year or so. We order over 100 hard drives in the last couple of years. They used to be reliable, but now they are failing after a year or two. I recently ordered around 10 of them. 5 have failed on and off. They are unreliable.

Stopped working in 2 months.

YogaBuff, Amazon
15 July 2013
  • Summary: I bought this hard disk as my backup option. I stored all my pictures and music and audio which was less than 500 MB. Just after 3 months my lapton stopped detecting the hard disk. I have tried using other computers and laptops as well and still same result. Is there any option for me left.
