Top Shelf Storage

  • Summary: I've been using Lacie external drives for years and they're great. I work them hard (with music recording and heavy graphics processing) and they always perform very well. Great product.

  • Summary: i plugged this into my imac the day i received it, set it to backup daily at a certain time, and have pretty much forgotten about it ever since. it backs up every day, is relatively quiet when doing so, and is pretty to look at. ive never had an issue with lacie drives (this is my 6th one) and the design is top notch.

Wow tough crowd.

Martha B., Amazon
24 October 2012
  • Summary: I really don't understand the mixed feelings on this drive. All Lacie drives I've purchased seem to carry negative reviews, but all of mine have been excellent and hassle-free including this one. The design is beautiful, the corners aren't sharp they just aren't rounded.. and I plugged it into my Macbook Air and the installation launched and walked me through the setup in about 2 minutes. All done..

Beware of LaCie customer service

Photo/Video Gearhead, Amazon
17 May 2012
  • Summary: I own several LaCie disk drives, and I was content with LaCie until I needed to contact LaCie customer service. Then my opinion of LaCie degraded dramatically. Rather than describe my disappointing interchange with customer service, I'll refer you to the CustomerServiceScoreboard website where you can read that LaCie scores much lower than IOmega and Western Digital. If you want useful customer service, stay away from LaCie.

Great product....

Peter A. Johnson "Uli", Amazon
26 March 2012
  • Summary: Simply a well-made desktop drive. Although I eventually reformatted the drive (thereby removing the LaCie software), the backup software works the way it was designed and is pretty much seamless and user configurable. I prefer not to use backup software and do things manually, therefore I did not continue using it. The design is quite nice - very robust and elegant. It is really quite a beautiful looking product.

Sturdy yet stylish hard drive

Levent Topakoglu, Amazon
11 February 2012
  • Summary: The hard disk inside shows as a Hitachi HDS723020BLA642 (Deskstar 7K3000) in the device manager. The drive needs auto-installation and formatting when plugged in. If you skip the process you come up to see a 10 gb drive instead. This may be confusing at first but just restart and do as it instructs to resolve it. Drive is VERY quiet and boots fast. Transfer rate is 25 mB/s at least and goes to 30, which is good for a USB 2.0 device.

gorgeous drive, flimsy mini usb port, ridiculously heavy

monique, Amazon
1 February 2012
  • Summary: flimsy mini usb port detached from enclosure 1 month before the 2 year warranty period was up (phew!) - no issues with the drive, just the enclosure. am currently working with LaCie support regarding repair, so far so good. the drive is beautiful but a BEAST. it's ridiculously heavy but i've had no problems with it in terms of drive performance. i have been using it with my MBP but did have it partitioned to be able to run on a DOS-based computer concurrently.

on my third one

Andrew, Amazon
5 December 2011
  • Summary: Like the look of these drives but at the moment my second one just crapped out on me and i'm sending it in for a replacement. The first one worked for awhile. Maybe 7 months and then just stopped mounting. Tried zeroing it and some other ideas from Lacie but eventually just had to send it in to be repaired. They sent me a brand new one as a replacement and it only worked for a couple of months before the same problem started happening.
