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