Summary: I use this drive primarily for backing up my computer with Time Machine. It has worked without problems for over a year now. It is fast, quiet, and it doesn't overheat. I would not hesitate recommending this product.
Summary: I just got this drive and I love it. It feels strong, and is well built. It works great and was pretty simple to setup. I've already put all my backups, photos and music on it. And the Time Machine does the job in spades and relieves me of a potential unexpected data loss headache.
Summary: It's amazing how the space you need for movies and photos adds up, and this unit is doing a great job of it. The USB 3.0 connection lets me get at all of those files really quick. Setting up the drive was fast, with no problems, and I was able to configure automatic backups without having to scratch my head.
Summary: I use this drive for Time Machine backups. I love the design. It pairs beautifully with my iMac, matching the color and material. I also love the USB3 speeds, ease of use and the overall build quality.
Summary: This is an excellent product. It works reliably, transfers are zippy using the USB 3.0 connection to my mac, and it has been absolutely rock solid. I have no issues recommending this if you need reliable desktop storage. Looks great too.
Summary: A friend with a MacBook Pro recommended this drive to me, and I've got to say it's all it's cracked up to be. It was easy to set up. I used the configuration utility to create two partitions, and I use one of them for Time Machine, and great encryption software (military grade!), and it works like a charm with my MacBook Air.
Summary: This drive works brilliantly well. It's fast, elegantly designed and seems very sturdy. It's also very quiet and I love it. I even talked two of my friends into buying this drive and they love it as well.
Summary: I thought it would take a long time to transfer all my videos from my Mac to my Porsche, and was I wrong! The USB 3.0 feature is wicked fast, and what's great is that after copying all of my media, my Mac's drive is almost empty, and there's still scads of room left on the Porsche. I love it!
Summary: Pros: easy to use, quiet, great functional design, compact, great transfer speed, 2 year warranty with Lacie (comes with purchase, you don't need to pay extra for the warranty), amazing compatibility with mac (has the ability to use for backup, works well with 'i'apps like iMovie and iPhoto, etc), also great for windows to store files, I've never felt it heat up, Has different power connecters for travellers.
Summary: My hard drive was full of my home movies and I had to get something to put them on and this is what I chose. Super easy, very seamless. Worked great with iMovie, works with OSX Maverics. Purchased November 2013.
