Summary: Reliable and fast! Super easy plug and play use, right out of the box (For Mac). All 5 of my LaCie working fabulously! Going on 4 years since I bought my first LaCie and no failures. Near silent and super dependable.
Summary: I like this USB 3.0 external drive. I like the on/off button and the blue light that shows activity. It gets a bit hot, but it seems to work fine, and it has already "saved" me a couple times.
Summary: I've had two Western Digital and one Seagate drive die on me, both within two years. The Lacie drive has an on/off button, it's a nice feature to help preserve the drive. You don't need a backup HD connected 24/7 which in my opinion ruined the other drives.
Summary: I'm always looking for a large external drive in order to store backups of my Lenovo laptop. The LaCie Minimus with 2TB fulfills this function for me. It is easy to use once set up. I appreciate the unit's power button and the LaCie popup screen that tells me how much of the drive is in use.
