Summary: This is a nice little drive I use to back up my Mac. It is very quiet, doesn't get hot at all, doesn't see to use much power, is solidly built and is a speedy little beast. It doesn't hurt that it's good looking (Porsche Design right?) and has a pleasant activity light as opposed to the death ray laser beams becoming so common today. I'm going g to buy a couple more of them.
Excerpt: I tape three of these together to store all my photos from a year. At the end of the year they all get shipped to a starage facility. Rugged and durable to travel with me for the year and small enough to pack.
Pros: Durable, Fast Connectivity, Quiet, Reliable, Versatile
This hard drive is sturdy and solid but with a flimsy USB 3

Summary: This hard drive is sturdy and solid but with a flimsy USB 3.0 connection that disconnects frequently and eventually quit working because the contacts wore out I cannot recommend purchasing this Lacie hard drive.
