Misled by the reviews

Mallory "kmdupree", Amazon
25 June 2013
  • Summary: I took a while to buy 2 new hard drives I saw at the time when I purchase the LaCie hard drives that they were the highest rated in amazon. So I went ahead and bought them and within 1 month I had issues with one of the drives it kept connecting and disconnecting a lot. I had to tinker with the cable in order to have the drive be recognize until it finally gave out and would not connect at all, I had to send it out on warranty and they did fix it so I was ok I thought it...

"slim and fast, but not reliable... too bad!"

  • Pros: the size and the speed, the look and the silent run.
  • Cons: several locking-offs due overheating (i guess), becomes slow until checked back into system. the support is rather sparing: "go ask apple-support" is not what i like to hear...

Mixed feelings about Lacie drives

  • Summary: I bought two of these drives. After only 5 weeks, one of them has packed up. Had similar experiences with Lacie drives in the past so I will probably not buy again.

Not for luddites!

E Bruce "Emie", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this to back up my daughter's Mac laptop and It seemed easier enough to get started with once we plugged it in but the instructions were poor and I am not confident about using it.

Challenging

Mr C, Amazon
28 April 2013
  • Summary: Despite a good rating on Amazon I was unable to get this device to work at all. After checking other user experiences on the internet it appeared that a driver may need to be downloaded - not something I know anything about or feel comfortable investigating. Unfortunately it didn't work for me.

Tolle externe Festplatte, aber mit eingeschränktem Nutzwert

StB, Amazon
27 April 2014
  • Summary: Auf Grund einer guten Testbewertung bin ich auf dieses Modell aufmerksam geworden. Daraufhin habe ich mir diese externe Festplatte mit USB 3.0 bestellt. Hauptzweck meiner Nutzung war eigentlich das speichern meiner Windows 7-Systemabbilder. Die Festplatte ist gut verarbeitet und sieht auch absolut hochwertig aus. Nach dem kopieren der ersten Daten, war ich noch sehr zufrieden mit meinem Kauf. Alles ging reibungslos und mit dem versprochenem Tempo.

Beim 2. Mal einschalten keine Funktion mehr.

gunterle, Amazon
26 March 2014
  • Summary: Meine Erfahrung war schon nach 2 Tagen frustrierend. Beim 1. Speichervorgang noch alles normal. Ein Tag später keine Funktion mehr. Es hat sich herausgestellt, daß das Netzteil defekt ist. Das zeugt nach minderwertiger Qualität. (Made in China) Nach Reklamation bei Amazon sehr sehr unbefriedigende Auskunft. PS. Das USB-Kabel ist wirklich zu kurz ! Mal sehen wie das weitergeht.

Tegenvallertje.

GewoonRein, Bol
25 January 2013
  • Summary: Nadat ik de schijf had geinstalleerd begon bij mij het apparaat al tegen de verwachtingen in te gaan. Ik vind 'm verre van geruisloos. Hij start traag op als de schijf geraadpleegd wordt, maakt een hoog piepend geluid en staat te trillen op m'n bureau.
  • Pros: veel ruimte voor weinig geld
  • Cons: trilt, start traag op, hoog piepend geluid

Helaas

adotten17, Bol
11 January 2013
  • Summary: Software functioneerde niet bij formatteren en ook de info op de site van LaCie veranderde daar niets aan. Pas na deze mislukking alle reviews gaan lezen, en er zijn 3 andere reviews waarin problemen gemeld werden. Dat vind ik teveel, dus e.e.a geretourneerd naar Bol.Com en nu maar een ander merk bestellen.
  • Pros: vormgeving niet slecht
  • Cons: doet het niet, er zat geen gebruiksaanwijzing bij
