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.
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.
Loved the size and sturdiness but thermal failure after 3 weeks

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.
Summary: It seems a huge amount of hard drives here @ Newegg are being returned for RMA. I can only wonder if the bad packaging on NE's part (c'mon, a thin piece of brown paper on one side of the shipping box is going to protect a hard drive from shipping bumps/drops??
Pros: First time LaCie customer here.. seems to be a real quality product. Nice aluminum case, long enough USB & power cables (HP are you reading??) On/off button. Spins up quickly. Quiet.
Cons: Ordered two of these. One works great, the other disconnects itself automatically within a few minutes (used the same connectors to test). Shame it must be RMA'd at my expense ($12 shipping). Had to knock 2 eggs off, otherwise it would get a 5.
Summary: Bought this hard drive as i had heard good things about LaCie but was disappointed, looks good but noisy, slow and dosent give a vibe that it would last for long so for the price i paid almost 100 pound (over half year ago) was way too much for what i got i dont know about other LaCie products but...
Summary: This HDD is exactly what it says but setting it up can be a nightmare and using it awkward. The pictorial instructions may be international but they didn't fit my operating system (Win 7). So, I fumbled it first time and the setup software would not let me do it again.
Summary: I received this from a computer savvy family member because I'd had some problems playing files off a 3tb external hard drive on our HD tv - it seems that 2tb is as much as current models can 'see' and its formatted as NTSF so it can hold big HD movies files of 10 gig or more.
