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: LaCie remains one of the best names in external storage. This drive is no exception. Very compact/unobtrusive, easy to install with my iMac...and so far, keeping flawless backups as my "Time Machine". If you're not backing up EVERYTHING in the Cloud this is your best answer for your desktop. Price is right for the amount of storage.
Summary: My first two external hard drives, a LaCie and an Iomega, had internal fans and thus were very noisy. So, for my next external hard drive, I looked for a fanless one, and bought one of those LaCie "Design by Neil Poulton" drives. Beautiful black monolith design, no fan -- and it sounded like a popcorn popper when it would read and write. Arggh! It drove me crazy.
Summary: Just got this hard drive a couple of days ago and it suits my needs perfectly! The setup assistant auto formats the drive for you right when you plug it in. I'm using this drive as the time machine backup on my new Macbook Pro 17" and it was super easy to get it up and running. The added feature of USB 3.0 gives me the option to upgrade to superspeed USB if I choose to in the future with a LaCie USB 3.0 Expresscard/34, but for now USB 2.0 speed is just fine.
