    Amazing quality, terrible usability

    • Written by from Montreal

    I haven't experienced any problems after one year of usage. BUT the design is terrible. The corners are so sharp that they even cut your skin. If you want to carry it somewhere ... forget it. I had to use a file to take the edges off. So if you buy it, prepare yourself for some additional tuning.

    Perfect companion for your macbook!

    • Written by from Stjørdal

    Just perfect!... fits the macbook pro perfectly, I did get the 2tb because of its capacity, design and great price. (yes they may be other cheaper alternatives, but non of them looks as good with you macbook!) ;) (buying a new macbook with usb-c? check out the usb-c version of this drive)

    Now I do like to take care of my equipment, and when I travel, I put it into a small hd case I got from eBay.. it does its job, and its protected! but if you are the kind that treat your stuff roughly, maybe better you get a rugged hd instead.

    Stay Away

    This is my second LaCie Porsche Design drive, I've owned the USB 2 and the USB 3 models, naturally attracted to them for their design. However, I have had terrible experiences with both drives. Specifically with mounting issues. Luckily for me, LaCie has been flexible with warranty repairs. However, if you are looking for a mobile backup, go with the Rugged design, sacrifice looks for functionality. I use both, Mac Mini and Dell.

    Excellent Hard drive

    • Written by

    This drive is just about perfect for me. It's the right size, both externally - small enough to fit into a small pocket of my laptop case and storage-wise. I'm loving the look as well. Probably the best feature, though, is the USB 3 speed - backups are taking a fraction of the time they used to and transferring data is so easy now..

    Great design and performance

    • Written by

    The drive worked right away through USB3, on my Mac, including Time Machine backup, and Eco mode. I love the space, the speed, and the looks of this drive. And the 10 GB of cloud storage that comes with it is a great extra that gives me capabilities (like sharing files while I'm on the road) without the additional cost.
