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.

  • Nothing but problems

    1.0 out of 5 stars

    I purchased the 4TB Porsche external hard drive after I no longer was able to mount my 1TB Porsche external drive. After seeking h I purchased the 4TB Porsche external hard drive after I no longer was able to mount my 1TB Porsche external drive. After seeking help from Apple, LaCie, and online forums I was not able to fix whatever the problem was and lost all my data. The same thing happened with the 4TB Porsche external drive approximately 8 months after I purchased it. I lost months worth of work organizing my media library and adding all the metadata. This is the last LaCie product I am going to purchase.

  • Failed after 3 months and very little use. Apple won't touch it or exchange

    1.0 out of 5 stars

    Having used this drive for a few months very in frequently, it appears to be dead. It will not mount from any of my mac computers Having used this drive for a few months very in frequently, it appears to be dead. It will not mount from any of my mac computers running Yosemite and Mavericks. The blue light does not come on, but there is a tiny flicker when I connect the power. I bought it 30th September 2014, 4 months ago so Apple will not touch it, exchange it or refund as it is third party.
    Am awaiting for a response from Lacie who only deal with such issues via their website.
    I hope I at least get my data back somehow.

  • Excellent Hard Drive!

    4.0 out of 5 stars

    I have two of these hard drives and I love them both! After having them for 6 months now, I can say they both perform wonderfully. I have two of these hard drives and I love them both! After having them for 6 months now, I can say they both perform wonderfully. The only complaint I have is that if the usb cable happens to move, it usually ejects the drive. But since it sits in one spot, I don't have the problem.
