Summary: Worked flawlessly for nearly 2 years ( iMac Time Machine) then thought it had died. Nearly replaced it while trying to contact customer service by direct phone calls and emails that received either nothing or a form email suggesting I go back to the La Cie website.
Summary: I use this drive just store all my music, movies and pictures. The USB 3.0 transfers files quickly, an how it looks on my desk. Great drive that I bought two. I use the other one to back up my work with the easy to use software that comes with the drive. High quality product. A must buy.
Reluctantly forced to buy the 3 TB as the only alternative. Still damn good.

Summary: I wanted to buy the 2 TB.... for some reason I wasn't authorized to buy the 2 TB which absolutely perplexed me... so i reluctantly payed 30 more dollars for an extra TB. Regardless so far this product has performed very respectably... however as most people would agree...
Summary: Well packaged, compact and nice looking. I had no problem formatting for my iMac, repartitioning (using Drive Genius 3) or loading software and large files. Operates well as an external booting disk and stays quiet. My only concern is that it gets very hot. Heat may shorten the disk life.
Small and compact, heats up fast, but working so far ...

Summary: I've used it and all appears well. But it does heat up to levels where I feel like frying eggs sometimes. Worried that this will eventually cause disk failure from the heat. Will revise my rating up or down depending on durability in the next few months.
Summary: I like this Hard Drive because it looks futuristic and it feels solid. It works as described and it has plenty of memory for me so that I can have more room on my internal Hard Drive. I recommend this to anyone who is looking for an extra drive to keep as a backup storage for their data.
