Firewire

  • Summary: The external is good but the only problem I'm having is that the firewire that came with this product is already falling apart. I've only had this item for about 2 weeks now.

Beware - not a 2.5" drive

Warren Anderson, Amazon
26 January 2010
  • Summary: The other drives in this series are 2.5" (small easily portable) dirves. "XL" does not correspond to drive capacity in this case, but to the fact that it is the large 3.5" format drive. I don't really consider this format a portable drive, so in the end I will not be using it.

Good but with reservations

djs, Amazon
2 January 2011
  • Summary: I have used smaller versions of this drive before, and they are pretty good, but it is a pity that this one can't seem to take its power from the USB socket; you have to use the power unit and plug it into the mains electricity, which is a nuisance when compared to my old one.

Soundlady

soundlady, Amazon
21 August 2010
  • Summary: It's not bad, I'm sure as a drive to sit on your desk it's great, but it's limited connectivity was the deal-breaker for me. Very good price for the amount of storage. I much prefer the smaller LaCie rugged, much more versatile.

  • Summary: My computer lost the drive designation so I couldn't access my data. The lacie team were helpful and by using diskmgmt.msc in vista I have now reassigned the drive letter and can access my data again .. phew!
