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: 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.
Summary: This little drive is perfect. As soon as I got it, I pulled the actual drive out, which indeed has the same specs as mentioned in other reviews. Put that in my machine and my 1TB in the external.
Summary: Origninally the drive software did not work. I had to delete it all and reformat the drive per LaCie cuslomer service request. One I had folled their instructions and reformated the disk it worked fine.
