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.
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..
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.
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.
Summary: a really nice looking hard drive that is also a great value for the 2TB of storage. I set this up easily with Mac OSX and it integrated with time machine effortlessly. I agree with some of the other buyers that the touch surface is a bit of a gimmick. But who cares, it's very pretty.
Summary: Ok so let me start by say how skeptical i was in regard to purchasing this drive. The reviews are mediocre at best. But...This drive is AWESOME! I may be bias because I'm in Architecture but I use this as my NAS connected to my Apple Airport Extreme.
