      Excellent storage

      I needed a new hard drive for backups. I've looked at different options and decided to go for this model as it seemed to offer what I was after.

I've set it up in no time. The speed is excellent. It's quiet and well built. All in all I can definitely recommend this drive.

      Great external hard drive!

      I must say that it is a great unit. The sleek, minimalistic design of this drive matches my iMac perfectly. It was very easy to setup. The speeds are excellent.

      Failed after 3 months and very little use. Apple won't touch it or exchange

      Having used this drive for a few months very in frequently, it appears to be dead. It will not mount from any of my mac computers running Yosemite and Mavericks Having used this drive for a few months very in frequently, it appears to be dead. It will not mount from any of my mac computers running Yosemite and Mavericks. The blue light does not come on, but there is a tiny flicker when I connect the power. I bought it 30th September 2014, 4 months ago so Apple will not touch it, exchange it or refund as it is third party. Am awaiting for a response from Lacie who only deal with such issues via their website. I hope I at least get my data back somehow.

      First one has been so good I bought another.

      My Mac Mini drive was full so I converted my old LaCie 4TB backup drive to a working drive and bought the new drive to use as a backup. Simple easy setup. Seaml My Mac Mini drive was full so I converted my old LaCie 4TB backup drive to a working drive and bought the new drive to use as a backup. Simple easy setup. Seamless backups, never had a problem. The bright indicator lights are not a problem to me, they're easy to shield. I don't care about the fancy "Porsche Design", but this is a lot of reliable storage for the money.

      2 years, 3 months - not long enough

      I bought an earlier version of this product (USB 2.0) from the Apple Store in 2014. The unit worked great for a little over 2 years, but then completely failed I bought an earlier version of this product (USB 2.0) from the Apple Store in 2014. The unit worked great for a little over 2 years, but then completely failed. It was never subjected to any abuse, and was essentially in the same location in my office for 2 years. I'm a bit surprised. I've bought perhaps a dozen external drives for myself and family members over the last 10 years. None failed this quickly. Most of them were Western Digital, and some the WD units lasted more than 10 years. That said, this has been the only disappointment among many purchases from the Apple Store.
