Performed well while it lasted

JT, Amazon

  • 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. If that also has a short life then it's 3 strikes for LaCie (the 1TB Minimus also replaced another Lacie drive that stopped working).

Great device but...

Andrea, Amazon

  • 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

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. It would run ten minutes then fail. I had to resort to keeping in freezer so it would not quit. With this this technique I was able to transfer off what I needed.

Usable but letdown

Tauri, Amazon

  • 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 there are lot better hard drives out there for less money, hope it help some of you out a little who are thinking of buying a hard drive.

Good value but quirky.

Music Master, Amazon

  • 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. Att his point the instructions fail; there is no help. I tried online but found it so confusing I email'd the seller for help, was told to return the drive, and it was very quickly replaced.

Mooi uitziende schijf

Bacardifan, Bol
21 January 2013
  • Summary: Kreeg de schijf via de buren die hem hadden aangepakt toen ik net een paar dagen weg was, dacht hem even snel te installeren met de aanwezige software, deed niets..... volgens de site van Lacie kwam dit in een aantal gevallen sproradisch voor, alleen heb ik altijd zoiets dus dat vraag ik me af. Schijf maar handmatig geformatteerd en in 2 partities verdeeld.
  • Pros: mooi design, goedkoop in vergelijk met anderen
  • Cons: jammer dat er geen rubber omheen zit zoals bij wd, hoeken zijn scherp en niet afgerond., van de 2 tb blijft maar 1863 over

Prima

cm23, Bol

  • Summary: Ik heb deze harde schijf nu een aantal weken in huis. De prijs/kwaliteit verhouding is naar mijn idee prima, gezien andere harde schijven van 2 TB behoorlijk wat duurder zijn. Het design is erg mooi. Het enige grote nadeel is dat het apparaat behoorlijk zwaar is en een usb aansluiting niet voldoende is maar deze ook nog eens in het stopcontact moet dus dat je daarbij in de buurt moet zitten. Goed voor thuis dus.
  • Pros: design, prijs/kwaliteit verhouding
  • Cons: gewicht (zwaar), stopcontact benodigd

LaCie Minimus USB 3.0 - 3TB 3.5 zoll

mattberlin, bewertungen.cyberport.de
25 September 2012
  • Summary: Für ein umfangreiches Backup benötigte ich eine externe, schnelle FP. Vom Preis-Leistungsverhältnis war die LaCie Minimus mit 3TB optimal geeignet. LaCie gibt leider keine technischen Details preis, so muss man hoffen, dass die FP ausreichend performant ist. Das Gerät wurde zuverlässig an meinem Rechner unter Win7 64 erkannt.
