Does not work with SBS 2008 backup

gr, Amazon

  • Summary: re: LaCie 301848U USB 2.0 Neil Poulton 1TB Rugged XL eSATA External Hard Drive The case is nice and cushiony! I think this drive will have decent shock resistance. My problem was trying to use it with SBS2008 on a DL360G5 server. Initial plug in and detect was ok, but when trying to run the SBS backup, the entire server bogged down to thousands of times slower than normal. Exiting the backup did not help, not did removing power from the drive.

  • Summary: Its a great product as long as you don't need firewire. The design is sturdy and stylin. I wish they made one powered by USB... eliminating cords would great!

Good drive at a good price

Sam Pen, Amazon
5 January 2010
  • Summary: Be aware that this is a 3.5" drive, not the usual little 2.5" firewire/usb drives. So it's a bit larger, not quite as portable. But it works the same, and the eSATA port is a very nice addition for those of us with them installed on our computers. There is USB as well, of course.

Drive is fine, but be careful of the size.

J. Scott "iocomposer", Amazon
11 July 2009
  • Summary: The drive works fine, as expected. No problems at all. However, being a big fan of the smaller 2.5" rugged drives, I bought this sight unseen without reading the description. Turns out it's a 3.5" drive in a much larger enclosure that looks exactly like the smaller ones in a picture but is actually much larger.

Great drive for the price

D. Markham, Amazon

  • Summary: Great drive for the price. However, do not use these Rugged drives as slave drives (i.e., do not leave them switched on for hours). They eventually over heat, and can fail: my 2 TB drive failed during summer use when the room temp was 28 Celsius.

Big, but does the job

Rico, Amazon
9 February 2011
  • Summary: I was quiet impressed with the speed of this drive but the size is a factor, plus all the wires I'm not used to as most of my other externals are the portable ones. All in all it does exactly what it says on the tin.
