on my third one

  • 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.

Piece of crap

  • Summary: Bought it 6 weeks ago and the connector broke off. It wasn't dropped or abused. The connector is lightly soldered on and the solder broke. The construction is not robust even to regular use.

Buyer Beware

  • Summary: The LaCie Starck 1 TB External hard Drive is heavy and beautiful. I just couldn't get it to work. The first one I bought wouldn't show up on the desktop when mounted. I took it back to the store where I bought it. They tested it, said it was defective and traded it for a new one. When I installed that one, the software didn't. I took it back to the store, and they downloaded new software from the internet for it. That actually did work. Kinda.

Worked well to begin with ...

  • Summary: Easy to set up on a mac. Seemed to work well, fast and quietly - at first. Then after a few days the power button would not turn the unit on straight away, taking 3 or more goes to do it, and even worse turning the thing off. So I have returned it. Shame, as I liked its good points: small and well made, lots of room and good price.

Didn't work

  • Summary: Sadly, as it has a good reputation and also looks nice, my one has gone back as it doesn't switch on at all. So I can't review it!
