  • So Loud

    4.0 out of 5 stars

    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.

    I've used a 2TB (Firewire) unit as my backup drive for 13 months and a 3TB (Thunderbolt) unit as my iTunes drive for 4 months with I've used a 2TB (Firewire) unit as my backup drive for 13 months and a 3TB (Thunderbolt) unit as my iTunes drive for 4 months without any problems. 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.

When I wake my computer up it takes twice as long now, and the thing clicks all the time. It was a waste of money and because I paid so much I am putting up with it, but one of these days I am going to have to replace it.
    I have many other external hard drives and they don't make any noise at all. Thank you.

  • Good drive which could be great with minor changes

    4.0 out of 5 stars

    Very happy with the performance of the drive.
    I don't have the noise issue I have read others have.

    One improvement would be Very happy with the performance of the drive.
    I don't have the noise issue I have read others have.

    One improvement would be a second Thunderbolt port for daisy chaining. I know there is a price tradeoff, so I can live with this.

    My only real complaint about the drive is the power/activity light on the front.
    Why must they use such bright lights? If you leave your Mac on or it wakes since you're using iTunes and Home Sharing, the drive will light up your room considerably. I wish they would take cues from Apple and use the small pinhole LEDs.
