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. …

Does not live up to the standards of the brand
Porsche is known for great design, while the design is pretty nifty; the unit is way too loud. This is the backup for my studio. I Porsche is known for great design, while the design is pretty nifty; the unit is way too loud. This is the backup for my studio. It is the most audible item on my desk. It defeats the purpose of having a noise free computer. LaCie is studio grade quality, but this is just pathetic. I am appalled by this unit. The noise interferes with the mixing process.
This drive is fit for the pit.
C'mon LaCie, get it together!! …
