Excerpt: I bought 2 of these drives for a small video shoot out of state. They fit into my messenger bag but didn't weigh me down during travel or moving around onsite. The daily transfer of shot content was fast and easy, and saved a lot of time at the end of the day.
Pros: Easy To Install, Fast, Highly Compatible, Lightweight, Quiet, Reliable
Summary: Pros: really really fast Cons: Orange bumper. Used this with a Mac Pro via the Thunderbolt connection. I was surprised that you could partition this for both the Mac and PC. I would buy this one again.
Excerpt: Nice Portable Hard Drive! I bought this Because of all the Positive Reviews I read. The Protective Case is a Plus Also.. Hopefully this HD will last. It processes large files fast. I use it as a Backup for All my Family Pics and Movies.. It's Replacing ANOTHER SEAGATE CRASHED HD..
Pros: Easy To Install, Fast, Highly Compatible, Quiet, Reliable
Summary: Extremely disappointed with this drive. Unfortunately all of the comments about Lacie's quality and poor support seem to be true. I paid extra for this drive over its peers so that I could get the extra performance from the built in thunderbolt cable, but that fails.
