I have a 1TB Time Capsule too, but based on its reliability, I'm not optimistic about a long life.

    What convinced to buy the first one was that the Apple Store employees were using them out on the floor.

    This Lacie drives works easily with Time Machine and the older Apple Backup software.

    I highly recommend it.

  • Died and lost all of my data.

    1.0 out of 5 stars

    I bought this specific hard drive in August 2013 because of all the great reviews and the shock proof case due to the amount that I bought this specific hard drive in August 2013 because of all the great reviews and the shock proof case due to the amount that I travel. It is now January 2015.
    I had stored all of my pictures, movies, computer backups and university assignments on it.
    Until about a week ago everything worked flawlessly.
    However I travel a lot like i mentioned and although all the airports and countries I was going to I always took the hard drive as a carry on and took extra care.
    Yet once arriving in New Zealand I plugged the hard drive into my mac to upload some more pictures, and there was nothing.
    My mac did not recognize the device at all.
    Nothing had happened, the cord was in great condition so I was totally confused as to why it wasn't syncing
    Long story short, I took the device to a local computer store the next morning and they informed me that the device died and that I lost all of my data.

    Currently still trying to contact LaCie to try and retain my data, but so far no luck.
    So, if purchasing this hard drive, have another backup as I just lost all my pictures from the past 6 years and no amount of money will ever be able to change that.

    Used approximately six times and then the unit failed. It may be the cable, it may be the USB plug, it may be the unit. Nonethel Used approximately six times and then the unit failed. It may be the cable, it may be the USB plug, it may be the unit. Nonetheless, it doesn't work. The hard drive may be rugged but if information isn't stored ruggedness doesn't matter.
