Do not buy this product
13 June 2013
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.
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.
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.
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.

Summary: [[ASIN:B00360QNT8 LaCie LaCinema Classic HD HDMI USB 2.0 2TB Hard Disk] Basically do not buy it. Screen froze, computer now cannot register/recognise this product. Waste of money and time. Lost everything and should of looked at more reviews.
Summary: From the box: This came straight out of the box and I plugged into various laptops to get hold of lots of music, videos, documents and photos. Was as simple as drag and drop! TV & video: Then I hooked it up to my TV using the HDMI cable and everything worked well.
Summary: Within the first week of using this machine i knew i had made a mistake due to its finnicky and edgy performance and un-user-friendly set up. This was confirmed when the machine refused to set up a reliable ethernet network and constantly affected my internet connection.
Summary: This drive failed on me after 11 months of not heavy usage. Internet searches for a solution seem to confirm the unreliability of LaCie products and this latest catastrophe brings my total of failed LaCie external drives to 3 in the last 5 years. I shall not be buying anything more from them!
Summary: Like other reviewers, I have had constant problems in getting this device to work properly. I generally know what I am doing, and the instructions are quite straightforward. The problem is the device itself.
