    Just bought one of these and it is driving me mad ! It just never shuts up. It is a great hard drive, very fast , but oh the noise Just bought one of these and it is driving me mad ! It just never shuts up. It is a great hard drive, very fast , but oh the noise. It emits a very loud whooshing noise all the time it is working. Would have had 5 stars otherwise. On the thunderbolt side my USB 3 LaCies are faster.

Both units go to sleep when my computer goes to sleep. If the bright, white light bothers you (especially when it is flashing), cover the light fixture with red plastic tape.

    If you are thinking about using this drive with a Mac mini that is set up in a quite room, I believe you would prefer the LaCie dr If you are thinking about using this drive with a Mac mini that is set up in a quite room, I believe you would prefer the LaCie drive, which is much quieter. I don't think the noise is as bad as another person implied since if I put this drive next to my Dell workstation, I would never hear the drive above the workstation noise. As with the 3TB LaCie, there is only one Thunderbolt port, so it would be (or have to be) the last device in a chain. I can't speak to reliability yet, but it worked perfectly out of the box.
