LaCrapie

Dez S., Newegg
21 November 2010
  • Summary: LaCie support is frustrating, only via e-mail, asking to perform diagnostic functions I already told them I had done. It took LaCie 3 days of online back and worth, asking to try this & that when all the information was in the original posting.
  • Pros: Looks cool, worked for at least 59 days.
  • Cons: After only 60 days of use. Freezes when attempting to add files, freezes when attempting to partition, either as simple partition or by zeroing out the drive. Makes a loud, constant burring sound with vibrations.

OK as a backup

Kenneth J., Newegg
9 October 2010
  • Summary: Bought this as a temporary backup system while I was running between two PCs – as a stopgap measure, it worked well and I would purchase it again. However, for frequent use I would probably have shelved this already and moved on to a second purchase of something else.
  • Pros: Small Form factor. Good capacity. Even speed (upload / download) – doesn’t run too hot. Quality build. Does not need outside power supply.
  • Cons: Included software. Running backups with multiple machines can get dicey – you find yourself wondering if it really backed-up or is still computing space requirements. Again – the software just doesn’t inspire confidence or create an ease-of-use.

Brilliant harddrive

Ricki, Amazon
15 June 2011
  • Summary: As the Lacie brand is the hard disk of choice at my university I decided to purchase one for myself. I am more than happy with this one. Its small on the outside but packs a big storage inside. It's fast, silent and feels very sturdy! Definitely worth it! Works perfect on my macbook pro.

  • Summary: This product is small and data exchanges very quickly considering it is a usb driven drive. I like that it runs on the USB's power as well.

Ideal for Apple Time Machine

Swill, Amazon
9 December 2010
  • Summary: I needed an external hard drive to operate Time Machine on a new Apple iMac. This one is ideal. Very small, silent, high capacity and excellent price. Any problems? Typically impenetrable plastic packaging - try not to sever an artery when opening it.
