Excellent speeds, quiet operation, good looks, and solid feel don't hurt, either!

The software that came with it made setup a breeze, and although it's somewhat noisier than my Seagate 3TB Thunderbolt HD, it seems to be a good, solid drive, much like the previous LaCie HD I had. However, there is a major design flaw with the drive, in that the light on the front of the unit is ridiculously huge. I have this particular drive attached to the my Mac Mini I have connected to my HDTV. Both units sit below the TV, and when I dim the lights to watch a movie, the LaCie indicator light is absolutely blinding. Then, when the drive starts to read or write, the flashing of the indicator light is impossible to sit in front of. I have covered most of the light with a small piece of tape, which doesn't look so hot, given that LaCie seems to be so proud of their Porche design concept. But it works and so long as covering that ridiculous light with tape doesn't void the warranty.

After losing all my files to a Windows virus I was pretty keen to back up my computer regularly. This drive is great, I just plug it in and it backs up my Mac automatically.

      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.

      Very Reliable and Looks Awesome.

      I've had this drive for a few years now, and it works exactly as you would want a hard drive to work. It looks fantastic next to my Mac.
