It works great as a backup drive. No problems at all. Every time I start up the hard drive icon appears on my desktop without fail. The speeds are excellent, and I can hardly hear the drive spinning, it's very quiet. Would recommend this product without hesitation.

The set up is easy thanks to the set up assistant that is pre installed (literally 2 minutes). The drive is near enough silent and even goes to sleep when not in use (not like other drives that I have had that run constantly, which gets really annoying). This is an overall great drive that I would defiantly recommend.

Personally I do three coursework based subjects at college, which filled up my Macbook Pro Retina laptop... Lacie 3TB Porsche Design to the rescue!!! I am able to back up all of my files, whether they be long word documents, image, movies and applications such as the Adobe CS6 package I am able to store everything on the hard drive with no problems. Some people say that the hard drive has sharp edges and can be dangerous. Personally I do not think the hard drive is dangerous, even though the edges are (slightly) sharp, it is a desktop hard drive anyone and you will not need to move it about. Otherwise go for the 1TB or 2TB portable Lacie hard drive.

    The only down side I have found with the hard drive is the motor inside the hard drive is a little too noisy for my liking, but I have got used to in within the month of owning it.

    Overall, I would recommend this product to anyone who has a lot of things to back up, which is then safe and neatly packed into the Lacie hard drive.

  • Too Noisy - did I get a bad one...?

    The cost of this drive is excellent value for the amount of storage. Also looks good and transfer rates seem good on USB 3 but ver The cost of this drive is excellent value for the amount of storage. Also looks good and transfer rates seem good on USB 3 but very slow on USB 2 which is to be expected. However the two failings are 1. The packaged software is poor - there is far more flexibility in the mac disk utility for partitioning, formatting etc if you want to use this drive for mac and windows backups/storage (i.e. exFAT) which is fine. 2. However the most annoying thing is the shear noise this thing makes - could be a one off bad drive - its for this reason mines going back to Apple for a refund.
