Summary: After <2 years this thing started to slow down, make loud noises and take forever to load. Got to the point where if I shut it down it would not mount again. Very unreliable. Was able to move most of my files to another drive; but some files were not copied (would stop in the middle of the...
Summary: After 2 days it became non-responsive. tried everything Lacie suggested I do to no avail. they wanted to me spend $35 to ship it back to them. I refused to pay to ship a defective device back after only 2 days. so now I have a very good looking paperweight.

Summary: I had immediate problems with this and had to send it back for repair, it worked fine for a few months then failed again. I sent it back but because there was a chip on the case they wouldn't repair it under warranty.

If more than one person tries to access the drive at the same time, it becomes worse than twice as slow.
Summary: Inside the sleek box is the industry's garbage hard drive: seagate. A Porsche body & a byd engine? It's snooty mac association shows with its incomplete support and flowery software & documentation.
Worked well before firmware update. Now it's worthless.

Summary: This worked well, until the latest (2.0.5 capsule) firmware update. In this update, our data has become inaccessible and we are unable to connect with our computers. HOPEFULLY LaCie has a solution for us soon.
