Best price for quality external memory.

Marty Rosenberg, MacMall

  • Conclusion: I was looking for a terabit backup memory unit and this model was highly recommended. I looked around and no one was able to match the price. Shipping was amazingly fast and the disc setup was simple and has been working flawlessly.

Impossible to link to my Mac

wz, J&R
16 July 2010
  • Summary: I was excited to have this much space. Even after 4 attempts to communicate with tech support and returning to Lacie, we never found a solution for getting the ITB Lacie recognized. We couldn't determine if it was the programs on my system or something else. I attempted to connect on three other computers with the same configuration and never connected. I would be very hesitant about purchasing this unit for a Mac using OS 10.6.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, High Capacity
  • Cons: Difficult To Use, Wasn't recognized-OS106

Lacie 1 TB Rugged XL External HD

Michael Roach, MacMall
16 June 2010
  • Conclusion: Excellent item so far;I'm using it for a portableTimeMachine HD with my 17" MacBook Pro (early 2009 model). Fast backup and rugged; I don't mind carrying it in my computer bag even though it literally is double the size of the 500 GB model. Needs to use an external power brick--isn't USB powered--that doesn't matter to me but might to someone. Doing good so far.

OUTSTANDING

STEVE, J&R
23 April 2010
  • Summary: I USE THIS TO STORE MOVIES FOR LONG TRIPS WHILE SERVING IN THE US AIR FORCE. HAVING RUFF AND TOUGH ITEMS WHEN ON DEPLOYMENTS IS MANDATORY, ESPECIALLY OUT IN THE FIELD. AND THE RUGGED XL HDD HAS PROVEN TO BE JUST THAT. THE CAPACITY ALLOWS FOR HOURS OF HASSLE FREE VIEWING.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Setup, Easy to use, High Capacity, Portable, Quiet

Great Addition

  • Summary: I have an old Sony Vaio(PCV-RX650), a really old computer, but it still works and it has tons of pics, music and vids on it. I was able to connect the external hard drive to it without any problems and transfer all my media of the pc very quickly.

  • Summary: apart from the fact that it is pretty big, it's an awesome external drive. i'd give it 5 stars if it were smaller/more portable.

It is reliable and works as advertised

MB, J&R
11 February 2010
  • Summary: I had previously purchased a Western Digital with an eSATA interface. After 20 days the eSATA conncection failed. I returned it and got a replacement hard drive. The eSATA connection failed on the replacement hard drive within 1 day. I returned it and bought the LaCie. Each night I use it to back up my computer using the eSATA connection. It is fast, quiet, reliable and works exactly as advertised.
  • Pros: Easy To Setup, Easy to use, High Capacity, Portable, Quiet, Reliable
