Summary: A stylish drive but you can find cheaper ones on Amazon. If you're a Mac user setting this hard drive up with your computer is super easy follow these steps. 1. Plug in the hard drive 2. Open up disk utility found in your applications folder inside the utilities folder 3. Next select the newly plugged in a hard drive and on the right-hand side you should see partition click on that. 4.
Summary: This is the second Lacie driver I have purchased over last five years. The first one was a smaller driver. In looking back on this purchase I probably should have bought a larger one... The driver has worked without any problems. Easy to hook up to your computer. I didn't realize that they also provided a USB 3 cord and bought one.....now I have two.... I would definately buy another Lacie drive.
Summary: one of the most reliable brands I have tried for external hard drives. I have had several hard drives that died down on me, dragging all my precious files with them. until I invested on LaCie hard drives. this one's a keeper. reliable, fast connection, sturdy, lightweight and got it for an unbeatable price! matches the color of my Macbook Pro and Air as well.
Summary: Small, quiet and dependable. Lacie hard drives have never failed me. Highly recommended! The only problem is you get only one chance to format the drive with the loaded software. If there is a glitch, you need to use Windows to format the drive but Lacie has responsive customer support to get you through the process.
It works great (if you want to store data once a month)

Summary: I don't keep the hard drive plugged in the computer on all the time, I mostly use it for monthly backups. The Minimus is quiet, loads the folder contents fast, and has a decent transfer rate (I only have USB 2.0 for now). My only complaint so far: I had to format the drive myself with Windows 7 as the LaCie Setup software it comes with fails to launch. A minor issue-- but still, not cool.
