Great form and function
Picked up this from Apple store today and formatted using LaCie utility software built on hard drive, no sweat. Then set up as Ti Picked up this from Apple store today and formatted using LaCie utility software built on hard drive, no sweat. Then set up as Time Machine back up. Did the back up in no time at all. So far so good. No problem. Got funny little rubber feet you have to stick on yourself - that's quite weird. Apart from that all is gooood. …

Easy setup, not sure about the design
I bought this as I had had a frustrating experience trying to format a Maxtor One-Touch to operate on my Mac. it was certainly ea I bought this as I had had a frustrating experience trying to format a Maxtor One-Touch to operate on my Mac. it was certainly easy to set up and operate. However, this Porsche design may be elegant, but the case is simply an aluminium oblong with sharp corners that are uncomfortable in the hand. Fortunately, i only need it as a desktop external drive, as I dislike the feel of it and wouldn't want to handle it for portable use. I would have preferred to do without the porsche design and save £20 or so. But it does work well and that's its saving grace. …

It works perfectly with Time Machine and transfers hu I am using this primarily to back up my MacBook and it's absolutely amazing. It works perfectly with Time Machine and transfers huge chunks of data without a hiccup. Runs like a charm, doesn't get hot, and hasn't disconnected once since I got it. The aluminium casing is lightweight and very solid. I have been carrying it in my laptop bag without a cover for several months now and it doesn't even have a scratch on it. …

Absolutely devastated and dying to find a decent data restoring company to see if i can get it all back, however the parts are apparently really rare to find. It was plugged into my computer and working find hen suddenly disappeared. It had failed a few times before where I used the disc utility to verify and repair it but this time it just completely died. I would not use this product again as it is completely unreliable and has cost me a lot of time, money and heartache. …

Failed twice in 7 months of purchasing...
Bought this in January 2014 and was using it for a good two months constantly with all my photography and music work then the driv Bought this in January 2014 and was using it for a good two months constantly with all my photography and music work then the drive decided to fail on me and lost all my data. Had it refurbished quickly and thought that would be the end of my problems but 3 months on after being fixed the motor has gone so lost all my data again for the second time and Lacie won't hold responsibility to recover my data. A really good product while it lasted but very poor build. A product shouldn't go wrong twice in 7 months of owning. Definitely changing to another product. …

Will this work with an early 2011 macbook pro?
- Asked by Tanith H from Melbourne
I have a 500MB portable drive plugged in to my Time Capsule USB, which I can access via Finder on my MacBook Pro. Would this be a suitable upgrade?
