Excellent speeds, quiet operation, good looks, and solid feel don't hurt, either!

The software that came with it made setup a breeze, and although it's somewhat noisier than my Seagate 3TB Thunderbolt HD, it seems to be a good, solid drive, much like the previous LaCie HD I had.

    However, there is a major design flaw with the drive, in that the light on the front of the unit is ridiculously huge. I have this particular drive attached to the my Mac Mini I have connected to my HDTV. Both units sit below the TV, and when I dim the lights to watch a movie, the LaCie indicator light is absolutely blinding. Then, when the drive starts to read or write, the flashing of the indicator light is impossible to sit in front of. I have covered most of the light with a small piece of tape, which doesn't look so hot, given that LaCie seems to be so proud of their Porche design concept. But it works and so long as covering that ridiculous light with tape doesn't void the warranty.

After losing all my files to a Windows virus I was pretty keen to back up my computer regularly. This drive is great, I just plug it in and it backs up my Mac automatically.

    Love the drive. Definitely would recommend. Only one issue. The port where you plug the power supply cord into became very loos Love the drive. Definitely would recommend. Only one issue. The port where you plug the power supply cord into became very loose after 6 months of use. Really scared me. I called Apple Support and they completely "passed the buck" and didn't want to help out. They said I had to go to Lacie for after-sale support.
    Reluctantly I called Lacie. They were wonderful! No questions asked. They said ship it to them, they'll fix or replace and ship back -- no charge. I sent it to them and they had it back to me within 7 days.
    Amazing!
    5 stars for Lacie.
    1 star for Apple Support.

  • The worst hard drive I have ever bought

    1.0 out of 5 stars

This one looked good and initially worked well for couple of mo Wanted to buy a cheaper hard drive that is sufficient for my work. This one looked good and initially worked well for couple of months but then stopped working completely. Same happened with another LaCie Porsche drive with my friend. If you want to buy a hard drive in this price range there are lot better options out there. Stay away.
