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.

    Not having to deal with a dedicated power supply was the first of a series of pleasant surprises I encountered while unboxing this Not having to deal with a dedicated power supply was the first of a series of pleasant surprises I encountered while unboxing this drive. As it turned out, I had some legacy Firewire hardware that works great with this unit, but when I'm traveling light, the USB cable does it for me without sacrificing speed. I really like this little orange-wrapped bundle!

    Can't believe that Apple won't stand by the two year warranty and are saying I have to deal with it myself. Very disappointed that Can't believe that Apple won't stand by the two year warranty and are saying I have to deal with it myself. Very disappointed that I have been an Apple use from the eighties and this is the help you get. Don't buy anything non Apple through Apple. They then had the nerve to 'google' the contact details for LaCie! Thanks Mitch (not) - Apple Australia. Apalling!
