Besides I got tired of managing multip I've got tons of files, photos and video and I've been running low on storage space lately. Besides I got tired of managing multiple backup drives, so I've opted for this 3TB baby. It's quite heavy due to the thick aluminum enclosure. The design and the build quality are awesome. Transfer speeds are great. I also love that there is a data encryption option, which gives me peace of mind knowing that even if I leave the drive behind somewhere the information contained cannot be accessed and is totally secure.

Very happy with the fanless design, great for musicians or anyone who hates noise.

It was plug-and-play for me and so far I haven't had any issues with it. The backups are faultless with Time Machine and I don't have to worry about my data security, since it can be encrypted with this drive, nor about running out of space - 3TB is an enormous amount of storage capacity to safely save all my files, music, video and photos..

  • Crashing Mac after 9 months

    I have 2TB version was running well for 9 months. Then Mac stopped recognizing Time Machine, then simply plugging in the USB cra I have 2TB version was running well for 9 months. Then Mac stopped recognizing Time Machine, then simply plugging in the USB crashed the Mac. I tested on my other Mac - same thing, crashed it. I plugged in my other Lacie hard drive to test if it was the USB on my MBP; nope the old drive works fine -regrettably old drive is too small for my back ups. Very disappointed after such a short time. I don't leave this on 24/7. I plug it in from time to time to back up as I travel with my MacBook Pro.

    Works well so far. I use it for daily backups, which go pretty quickly over USB3 considering the amount of data I have. The drive Works well so far. I use it for daily backups, which go pretty quickly over USB3 considering the amount of data I have. The drive is well constructed and was pretty much plug-and-play with my iMac. I've been using it for about a year and haven't experienced any problems with it.
