      Most reliable backup

      This is one of two of the same model I have owned for the past 2 years, and they have both performed flawlessly for daily staggered backups. I have a 1TB Time C This is one of two of the same model I have owned for the past 2 years, and they have both performed flawlessly for daily staggered backups. I have a 1TB Time Capsule too, but based on its reliability, I'm not optimistic about a long life. What convinced to buy the first one was that the Apple Store employees were using them out on the floor. This Lacie drives works easily with Time Machine and the older Apple Backup software. I highly recommend it.

It's rugged enough so that I don't have to worry about the bumps and grinds of everyday use. It's compact and has an excellent choice of interfaces. The speeds are awesome. So five stars on all of the above.

I only bought it because it was late on a Sunday afternoon, and it's all my local Apple store had that had some protection. Almost immediately, I discovered that the connector cable was so loose that it slipped out constantly. Then the drive wouldn't read on my MacBook Pro or my Mini. I thought it was the USB ports. Wrong-o. The repair person rolled his eyes when I brought my Mini in for repair. He informed me that the LaCie was nothing but trouble. Do NOT buy this thing. You will regret it.

      Worst Connecters In The Market

      I have owned this drive for 2 years now. It handles all the bumps and occasional drops I give it as promised. However this drive doesn't stay connected wo I have owned this drive for 2 years now. It handles all the bumps and occasional drops I give it as promised. However this drive doesn't stay connected worth a darn. I originally used firewire using the supplied cable and a longer one. One side or the other would just fall out....constantly. I decided to try the USB 3 side and experience has been worse. Sitting on a table and just typing will cause the drive to disconnect and worse not fall out. Worse because you don't know what side to wiggle to get it going. Worst yet is it takes the drive 20 seconds or so to connect so you don't know if you have it plugged in again or not.
