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.
Summary: I bought the LaCie Stark 1 TB for my Aiport Extreme Base Station as a backup hard drive for use with Time Machine on my MacBook Pro. It's a funky looking hard drive, with a thick, strong aluminum case that helps it from overheating and protects to moveable parts. I have my AEBS and LaCie on a shelf, with a closed back and I was worried about overheating. However I have check from time to time and have not noticed the drive to be very hot.
Summary: Having struggled with noisy external drives, this one saved the day. Incredibly quiet, well-built, and the Starck design is awesome in person. Its looks have been a conversation piece more than once. Can you say that about your hard drive?
Summary: This is plain and simple a great external hard drive. The one and only thing I do not like about it is that it requires power from a wall outlet, which it is impossible to supply a tb hardrive with enough power from the laptop so it was necessary. It runs great. I haven't had any problems. It's quiet. Works with both mac and windows. And it is built with great quality that cannot be compared with other hard drives. I highly recommend buying this hardrive.

Summary: I'm not sure if a hard drive can be sexy, but this one comes very close. It's amazing how such a small detail, the sleek design of the cover, moves this devise from a piece of equipment to a piece of art. The hard drive was incredibly easy to set up; I just plugged it into my computer and followed the instructions. If you're computer or media setup is in a public location in your house, this is a great hard drive. It adds a touch of style and elegance to your setup.
Summary: I am very happy with the performance, looks, built quality, and value of this LaCie external hard drive. I'm using it with Time Machine as a back up drive. It has a very sturdy metal case that looks great besides my new (aluminum) iMac. For my purposes, this USB 2 unit has plenty of speed in transferring files fast. Great value.
Summary: The unit fits in with my 27" iMac wonderfully. The drive out of the box was easy to install. It is the quietest drive in my collection. It is very stylish, fast and quiet. If you are looking for a drive that sits on the desk this is the one for you.
Summary: What makes this different then every other 1TB external hard drive out there? This one is beautiful. This hard drive replaces the ugly black box (which is what I had before this one). This is the hard drive for those of us who have a computer in the middle of our living spaces, where you may want something not so bulky looking sitting out. When your wanting something that looks more like a streamline piece of equipment rather then a big black book with rubber ends.
Summary: This is a MUST HAVE hard drive specially for those who own the new imac 27"...is a very stylish and works perfectly with Time Capsule and the front touch works as described by Lacie. I had to replace a old Lacie hard drive 300 Gb for this new 1 Tb to be able to save all my precious data.
