Pros: As promised by LaCie, the design is elegant. It is Windows 7 compatible and that is what I needed for an easy installation. It has a shock resistant chassis but it does not have a Firewire 400/800.
Cons: Instead of one mini USB port and one standard USB port, LaCie would have offered 2 standard USB ports. Decided to play a movie on the drive and was shocked to note that voice sync with the visual was not that good.
