    About Thunderbolt

    Thunderbolt is a revolutionary I/O technology that supports high-resolution displays and high-performance data devices via one simple port and a cable that carries both DisplayPort and PCI Express data. And it’s standard on every Mac.

    PCI Express is the technology that links all the high-performance components in a Mac. And it’s built into Thunderbolt, which means you can get PCI Express speed outside the box.

    Thunderbolt gives you up to 10 Gbps in both directions, allowing for super-fast data transfer between peripherals. You also have enough bandwidth to daisy-chain multiple high-speed devices without using a hub or switch.

    Thunderbolt also provides double the power of USB 3.0, delivering 10 watts to peripherals for improved performance on the go.

      A great hard drive.

      I have used my hard drive extensively for over a year without any issues. Fast and light, it's an excellent product.

      Good Product - Brilliant After Sales Support

      I had one of these for nearly two years as a time machine backup - it worked flawlessly for that time, then just failed. These things are advertised as being in I had one of these for nearly two years as a time machine backup - it worked flawlessly for that time, then just failed. These things are advertised as being indestructible and capable of being run over and surviving a 5ft drop. Well mine was just sitting on my desk and it still failed! Which was annoying, but not disastrous as it was just the backup so I had at least two more copies of my data. But the wonderful thing was that it had a two year guarantee. I went through some of the troubleshooting guides on LaCie's website (very good) but it was obviously a mechanical fault, so raised a ticket on LaCie's website. I had a few quick emails with a technician at LaCie who soon agreed to replace the drive - I posted it back and within a week a new drive had arrived. The new drive is working well. The quality of this service and the seamless running of the drive before it failed is why I have given four stars. I would definitely buy a LaCie drive again simply to get this level of after sale support. Well done LaCie!

      Worked great for a year

      This hard drive is super portable and easy to mount, and it worked great for almost a year, but now it randomly force ejects itself, risking damage to files. I This hard drive is super portable and easy to mount, and it worked great for almost a year, but now it randomly force ejects itself, risking damage to files. I had an older version of the same product that did the same thing. I don't think I'll be buying LaCie brand again unfortunately. If that one bug could be fixed, this product would be perfect.

      Thought it was my computer

      I thought it was my computer that was ejecting the drive and even turning itself off. I knew if I finally got my LaCie to finally connect if I even breathed on I thought it was my computer that was ejecting the drive and even turning itself off. I knew if I finally got my LaCie to finally connect if I even breathed on the cord it would eject. I came here to see if there was a way to get a new cord for mine but after reading that others are having this same issue...I was happy with mine until it did this and I've had it for 3 years or more. Very sad.

      Don't buy this drive!

I was excited when they came out with a 1TB drive with Thunderbolt and bought one without hesitation. One really minor drop and it was dead and unsalvageable. The rubber protection was useless in a drop of less than 18inches from coffee table to floor. And LaCie customer service was worse than useless. Essentially they told me "tough luck, nothing we can do". So I took it back to the Apple Store which was super. They gave me a full refund and I bought a G-Tech 1TB Thunderbolt drive and have never looked back. I'm done with LaCie, more for their attitude than for the poorly designed drive.
