Reliable and durable

Betty, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I have used LaCie external hard drives for years to store my photos...the rubber bumper afford protection against jarring and bumping. I have had extremely good luck with these drives however the one downside I have experienced with these drives is a failure, not with the hard drive itself, but with the connector cable port on the hard drive. LaCie really needs to address this problem..
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy to use, Portable

Great Drive - Bad Case

A_ese, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: The drive is great, it works really well and is faster than any other drive I own. However, I have to be careful plugging and un-plugging into the thurnderbolt port. It almost feels like the case is too tight? I hear that the port breaks often.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy to use, High Capacity, Portable, Quiet

Beware of the integrated cable.

Shooter McGaven "R.McG.", Amazon
26 January 2015
  • Summary: This is the second Lacie Thunderbolt/USB 3.0 drive I've purchased — the odd thing here is that the thunderbolt cable is integrated into the drive. Not a big deal unless the cable becomes damaged of severed. In which case, I'm betting you'll be SOL. It'd be better to be in a position to replace the thunderbolt cable, obviously. I don't think the integrated cable speeds operation or saves you cash.

Great Fast Drive for Backing Up Macbooks

David P. Scaglione, Amazon
25 January 2015
  • Summary: I know that this is still an internal 5400 rpm drive but the Thunderbolt makes up for it. It performs very well. What used to take me 4 hours on USB 3.0 drives takes less than 10 minutes on this drive copying from my Macbook Airs that both have SSDs. If you're looking to use this as a read/write/access live drive for video, etc that's not what this is for.

No external power source

  • Summary: Only drawback is no external power source, which is required to back up recordings from a Dish Network DVR.

  • Excerpt: Works like it's supposed to. Very durable. Not super fast, but it's only a 5400RPM drive, so it's about what I expected.
  • Pros: Easy To Install, Reliable
  • Cons: Slow

  • Summary: I was previously using a similarly sized Samsung drive as the Time Machine backup device for my Mac. However, I kept getting errors and failures of different sorts with the Samsung, so I thought I'd triy this. I've had very few problems. In both cases, I was powering the drive through the USB port of a MacBook Air. It occurs to me that maybe a powered hub would have solved the problem.
