    Stay Away

    • Written by from Santa Barbara

    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

    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.
