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.
Summary: The item arrived promptly. As a remote drive, the LaCie 500GB is compact, fast and, so far, reliable. Although Firewire is faster, the USB transfer is rapid and trouble-free. One annoying drawback was that the software supplied was not yet compatible with the latest Apple OS10.7.1, which meant that...
Summary: This external hard drive is exactly as it looks in the pictures and as it says in the description. It really is quite small, about the size of an iPhone or average wallet so you can easily store it in your pocket when transporting it. It is light, quiet & looks very good. Would highly recommend.
Summary: This is a neat little device that so far worked perfectly. The reason I'm only giving four out of five stars is, that the short length of the usb cable coming with the device can be quite annoying depending on where you want to use it.
Summary: I have been using this for my time machine and it works a treat! The only minor complaint is the length of the cable - which is so short I have to prop it up on something so that it can sit comfortably next to my computer.
Summary: Really pleased with the device. Formatted in a couple of minutes and sits neat and tidy on my desktop, powered only by the USB 2.0 cable. Would love to know the rationale on supplying a lead though which is not practical - only 3 inches long so cannot, for example, be connected to my iMac without...
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.
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.
