Only a good buy if you can guarantee you'll never drop it

Brian, Amazon
2 November 2014
  • Summary: The drive itself works. . . very . . . slowly. Even viewing the thumbnails of a series of photos you have takes ages to render if you have too many. It's a small drive with a lot of space but only buy it if you're absolutely certain it will never be dropped. A drive I owned dropped once from the height of about a bathroom tub onto carpet and that little drop caused something internally to dislodge.

Great looks, barely works

Jason Hickerson "Jason C Hickerson", Amazon
16 March 2013
  • Summary: I bought two of these drives, the first to keep music, photos, videos on, the second as a backup for the first. The drives are beautiful and match my Macbook Air nicely, in size and style. The cord is short and folds flush against the case, so it's very portable, too. Great so far, but... After about six months, the cable on drive one frayed and I had to replace it (with the cable from drive two). After a few more months, that one frayed, too.

Lacie / Rikiki / 1tb

Shpuza1984, Amazon
10 February 2012
  • Summary: Ok, so I bought the Lacie Rikiki 1tb and was extremely exited about it. It was small, it looked good, it didn't have a separate power cord, it loaded information extremely fast because of its 3.0 USB drive, etc... Essentially, it had a lot of features that appealed to me. However, in one month's time it broke down. I started getting a weird beeping sound when connected and then it would just not mount.

Rust

Gabyh, Amazon
7 February 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this hard drive, but received it with rust on the USB plug. It was still in it's original packaging, but I think it just wasn't stored properly. I returned it. And they were very easy to deal with.

Works great until it dies...

Jody "Jade", Amazon

  • Summary: This is a nice little drive. Aesthetically gorgeous and incredibly portable. Mine failed 11 months in (there's a two year warranty on this product). LaCie's customer service is seriously lacking. They are unapologetic for any failure of their product and could seriously care less about helping you retrieve your data.

2.5 Stars - No native linux support YET.

RTPnolan, Amazon
27 April 2011
  • Summary: First let me say that the USB boost driver on windows AND mac does help as claimed. And the drive *IS* very cool to the touch. Second, I haven't owned this drive long enough to really give it a fair review either good or bad, SO i will just updated this more as time goes on. For now let me just say I would give this 4 or even 5 stars however ... ****My only gripe with it is Ubuntu support seems very unstable and unreliable.

Failed just after a year

Claire, Amazon
1 January 2014
  • Summary: I ordered this product in August 2012 and it worked great until a couple of weeks ago (December 2013), when I could no longer access my data from the hard drive. I have had somebody look at it and I was told there were some badly damaged sectors within the drive and I would need to send it off to a professional data recovery company, I'm looking at having to spend up to £1000 to get my data back (if it can be retrieved).

Excellent Hard Drive-Excellent Price!!!

Soula B, Amazon
12 November 2012
  • Summary: I bought my Lacie Rikiki Portable 500GB about two years ago and I never regret it! In the beginning was the size that attracted me because I travel a lot and I needed something really portable. And Lacie Rikiki Portable 500GB has travel around India, around Greece and U.K !!! Is fast, reliable, light and small. The ONLY PROBLEM is that comes with a USB gable so small that you cannot avoid damage it! Also, in the size that comes ( only 3 inches!!!
