Lead too short - otherwise good!

ms a Ross, Amazon
3 May 2013
  • Summary: Sturdy, good quality product (so far) - ruined by the tiny connector lead supplied. Come on LaCie! We don't want to work with the drive hanging by a 3" lead!!!

Does the job

Robin Moenne-Loccoz, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought this because of the size (physical size), and it's perfect in this sense, I carry it everywhere. For the rest it does the job, I can save stuff. Design is nice.

Best little drive

dbc, Amazon
12 January 2013
  • Summary: Really rugged construction from the Lacie rikiki, Mines going 2 years strong, never had a fault so far. The usb cable it comes with is mini in size so im often putting a bit of strain on this whilst using it with a pc or macbook but the connection is still strong. Strong metal body really nice expensive finish and quick speeds. would upgrade to the USB 3 but no need at the moment.

Nice piece of kit for backing up photographs!

living-in-clip, Amazon
7 January 2013
  • Summary: I bought two of these to back up my photographs from my laptop. So far the 500gb drive has worked well and was easy to install. The device is sleek, light and easy to transport. The only criticism I have is that the short length of the usb cable. It's fine if you have a laptop lying on a table and you can put the drive right next to it. Someone using a PC might need to purchase a decent length cable instead of leaving it dangling from the USB drive!

Great External Drive

Roger, Amazon
7 April 2011
  • Summary: I've had a mobile 80gb Lacie drive for 5 years which has always been reliable so on deciding to purchase a larger drive for back up I chose Lacie again. So far the 500gb drive has worked well and was easy to install. The only draw back is the virtually useless cable which at 6" long is neither use nor ornament, a trip to the local Maplin store solved this with the purchase of 1.5m cable and now I can site the drive where I need it instead of leaving it dangling from the...

Good Value

silvester555, Amazon

  • Summary: This is an elegant external hard disk that would not embarrass anyone. With 500GB and no power cables or boxes it has almost all one needs for routine backup or transportable data applications. On the negative side it is slow as it is USB connection powered. Faster, more modern technology is out there but a a price. Good value for money.

nice little piece of kit

neem, Amazon
15 September 2010
  • Summary: this is an excellent and sturdy little hard drive and very portable. the only possible down side of it is that the usb cable that comes standard with it is only about 10cm long, which means that unless you are planning on having it right next to your laptop it could be a bit of a problem. probably not really an issue in most cases. seems very safe to transport around and can take a few little knocks due to the aluminium casing.

Useful, compact storage, but poor support

Mr. R. A. Green "Silver surfer", Amazon
3 August 2010
  • Summary: A well designed, compact and useful device. Looks good and works well, used as an off-site backup. The instructions supplied with the device are very brief and the LaCie web site gives little information about the Rikiki. It seems rather demanding of leads: the supplied lead is ridiculously short and the first longer one I tried caused the drive to start bleeping (the LaCie web site gave no useful help on this): eventually I found one that worked.

Lacie Rikiki Hard Disk esterno

siculo60, Ciao
27 November 2011
  • Excerpt: ...negozio specializzato questo modello della LaCie Rikiki, un nome che fino ad allora mi era sconosciuto, ed in effetti non è che si trovi ovunque. Questo hard disk è di ridotte dimensioni, appena 7 cm di larghezza per 10 cm di profondità , alto appena 2 cm. Il collegamento è semplicissimo, dotato di un buon cavo USB integrato che si collega all'uscita usb del vs p ed il gioco è fatto. La capacità di memoria è straordinaria, pensate ben 500 GB, in ...
