Summary: Having had the machine less than 6 months it has stopped working. It is not recognised by the TV or PC. I have been advised by the support team to send it back to them, at my cost, and it will take 2-3 weeks to repair. Having now read reviews of similar issues I also would not buy another Lacie product.
Summary: Looks very fair... I'd rather it looked fouler and felt fairer. I have had a myriad of problems with this, but I'm pretty sure most of them are due to overheating. This device runs VERY hot when the HDD is exercised. So playing HD movies and file transfers will easily cause it to freeze or fail to recognise files (it will report "File type not supported" for files that were playing happily just minutes before, so I guess this is a generic error message for any...
Summary: When I bought this item the company had no feedback or ratings that i could see, but they sent the item really promptly and i would have no hesitation using them again ( The 2TB was only just over £5 more than the 1TB with other companies)
Summary: When folk used to say something you pretty much knew what you were getting. I'm sure at one point LaCie sold stuff they were sure of but then everybody else started selling hard drives. So then some bright spark looking for a raise probably suggested thinking out of the box. And that must be the general mind set at LaCie ever since- out of their boxes.
Summary: I bought the LaCinema Classic HD, but this machine is far to expensive for what it can do. To transfer large files you can not use the USB connection if you need a USB cable more than 5 meters. Only ethernet cable seems to be working (so the helpdesk told me, but they are telling differend stories everytime and everytime you get another person who is telling an other story).
