Summary: I bought this product sometime winter 2012 in college when my laptop started running out of space. A couple of weeks after I bought it it randomly stopped working. Years later I plugged it in again, and it turned on for about five minutes, before it disconnected and would not be recognized by the...
Summary: This drive has been sitting in my drawer not long after I made the uninformed purchase in 2010. I concluded that paying the premium for a LaCie product would save me from hardware issues/failure. I was wrong. This drive frequently disconnects from computers--tried on 3 different laptops.
Summary: My computer stopped recognizing this drive within months of purchase. I should have known better than to take another chance with a LaCie product after using many of LaCie's rugged portable drives for work and watching them slowly become recognizable by the machines I connected them to.
Summary: I had used this hard drive for a year without any problems, before I bought a second one. I took the same care of it as the first one, but after 3 months of use it suddenly started to give squeaky noise when it tried to read the content. And that was it.
Summary: I was hesitant about the design as I should have been. A manufacturer defect in the case deleted the partition. I opened the case to try and recover the files. I was mostly unsuccessful. However now I have voided the warranty.
Summary: My LaCie Rikiki portable Hard Drive is not being recognized by any laptop and makes strange noises when connected. I recently contacted the LaCie online technical support. they recommend sending the unit for repair. where can i send it to this?
Summary: This Hard drive looks great... but it failed after only 3 months. It started disconnecting itself randomly after only a month. I've probably only used it a dozen and a half times before it failed. I love the lacie designs but I am not ordering from them again. Do not trust Lacie for back-ups.
Summary: Thankfully I didn't have any original files on here, and the only thing lost was the time to return it twice. Complete garbage, and I'll never get sucked in to the LaCie style over function again.
Pros: Box design is gorgeous. Sleek, and very cool aesthetic.
Cons: The way the cord connects to the drive is awkward, and the insides are, well... garbage. Total failure twice.
