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.
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.
Summary: I bought this in july2010. This is the second Lacie external hard drive I have bought and just like the first one it has become unusable well before it should have. I have used this drive about a dozen times and now it won't mount despite endless reformatting etc and trying to repair on different...
Summary: This hardrive is so small i could fit it in my pocket. It's great for carrying to and from class. (I bought a compatable carry case to keep it safe.) I have also used this hardrive with a mac, i crated the optional exchange partition when i was setting my hardrive up, You will still be able too look...
Summary: Excellent piece of kit, had it for a few months now and have been using it almost daily if not weekly, travel a lot and its had its fair share of knocks and bumps without a single hiccup, would definitely purchase again
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: 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.
