  • Summary: So I have had this for exactly 28 months running it on my iMac 24/7 to update a few times a day via Time Machine. Over the course of using it there were periods of time were the iMac couldn't mount it to the computer. No big deal...

Mac users and PC users see different folders

My2Cents, Amazon

  • Summary: Easy to use. Small, fast and easy to store. One complaint is that PC and Mac users seems to end up seeing different folders. We had several incidents where our photographer (on a Mac) placed files in a folder that PC users was unable to see. It didn't seem to be a problem the other way around.

  • Summary: I kind of like the fact that it has the built in Thunderbolt cable. The implementation is a little weird. I'm glad they also have USB 3 connection as well.

  • Summary: I seem to have a character flaw when it comes to Lacie. I don't know how many I've bought over the years - I'm guessing ten. I've had a lot of power supply issues, internal drive issues, etc., but I keep coming back. This drive is fine - no power supply. I like the design and have three to prove it.
