Mixed review

  • Summary: I have 2 of the LaCie Porsche drives and liked them in the past. Unfortunately my computer doesn't even recognize this drive any longer after 60 days? Not thrilled.

Makes Noise when Running

  • Summary: Have never had an external HD which makes as much noise when it runs. Don't know if that is what it is supposed to do or if it means it is going out.

Samsung TV wont see it

Mathew H., Newegg
17 September 2013
  • Summary: The sole reason I bought this was to house movies to be accessed through my tv like a jukebox. The tv couldn't recognize it. Not sure if that's the fault of the newer tv, or the hard drive. Other drives work.
  • Pros: Does everything it says it will... with s3x appeal
  • Cons: Havent found anything major, but the quality in the connections are lacking... just like the other reviews said. Doesn't work with my Samsung PN51E450.

Performed well while it lasted

  • Summary: Hooked this up to my 27" iMac. Easy to set up with Time Machine and worked great till about a month ago. It still powered up, but just spun constantly while no longer backing anything up. So am replacing it with a 2TB LaCie Minimus.

LaCie 2Tb USB 3.0 external hard drive.

Amazon Customer "Amazon fan", Amazon
17 July 2012
  • Summary: This LaCie external hard drive seems to be capable. However, when I went to install the drive on my computer, I began with the included startup file. The installation process began, but "hung" and never finished. I tried again with the same result.

Great device but...

Andrea, Amazon
3 May 2012
  • Summary: This is a great external drive, have a nice design, smooth interface with Macs. However, it has a less than 5" cable, it is really 'minimus' that's why I can't rate it higher.

Loved the size and sturdiness but thermal failure after 3 weeks

Fkee, Amazon
11 December 2011
  • Summary: It seemed to be a great small compact disk and quiet. However after backing up 350GB for a new computer swap it developed an intermittent thermal failure which caused it to drop and request reformatting. I think the USB interface was culprit or possibly just a loose internal cable.
