Couldn't be happier..
I needed storage for my media and iTunes library, and this drive fitted the bill. It's large and fast, but most importantly for me I needed storage for my media and iTunes library, and this drive fitted the bill. It's large and fast, but most importantly for me it looks great. I'm a real fan of brushed aluminium look. It's also quiet, doesn't buzz or make annoying sounds and it doesn't overheat even after several hours of continuous work. …

Works great with my MBP
Read some reviews on hard drives before I made my decision. Ended up going with a LaCie. Very happy with the product. I liked the Read some reviews on hard drives before I made my decision. Ended up going with a LaCie. Very happy with the product. I liked the price, the LOOK!, the storage capacity. It's USB powered which is always good. Very quite, even when the HDD is working. 4 sticky legs come in the package and you put them on each corner of the hard drive, so it's not actually sitting on the aluminum case but it appears to because the tiny squishy "legs" are probably about 1mm tall lol.. This adds to the cool effect I felt.
Lot's of pre loaded software. -Wuala an online storage/cloud service (5GB free), -works seamlessly with Time Machine, -also a program to partition what portion can be used with HTFS or Journaled great for people who use both OS X and Windows (Like me for school vs. me having a Mac at home), high security software to encrypt files on the LaCie, and more.
