Did the back up in no time at all. So far so good. No problem. Got funny little rubber feet you have to stick on yourself - that's quite weird. Apart from that all is gooood. …

Easy setup, not sure about the design
I bought this as I had had a frustrating experience trying to format a Maxtor One-Touch to operate on my Mac. it was certainly ea I bought this as I had had a frustrating experience trying to format a Maxtor One-Touch to operate on my Mac. it was certainly easy to set up and operate. However, this Porsche design may be elegant, but the case is simply an aluminium oblong with sharp corners that are uncomfortable in the hand. Fortunately, i only need it as a desktop external drive, as I dislike the feel of it and wouldn't want to handle it for portable use. I would have preferred to do without the porsche design and save £20 or so. But it does work well and that's its saving grace. …

New iMac new backup drive.
I bought the LaCie 1TB P9223 as backup for my new iMac 21.5 (OSX Yosemite 10.10.4). My older iMac (2007 – OSX Tiger and still goin I bought the LaCie 1TB P9223 as backup for my new iMac 21.5 (OSX Yosemite 10.10.4). My older iMac (2007 – OSX Tiger and still going strong) has been retired to the bedroom. I have a LaCie backup drive also for the older iMac and it has worked perfectly for nearly eight years. It was used to transfer all my files to the new iMac, as the Migration Assistant is not compatible with OSX 10.4.
The LaCie P9223 arrived the next day after ordering from the Apple Store and was easy to install, but I could not register it as requested by the LaCie Setup Assistant and was informed of a ‘server error – please try again later’. I then registered it separately online with the LaCie website.
It is externally robust in its aluminium casing and sits well above the Apple SuperDrive on the foot of the iMac. When requested by the LaCie Setup Assistant, I opted for 100% partitioning for Mac. This is simply achieved by dragging the slider displayed in the Setup Assistant all the way to the left to illuminate the default partition and clicking OK. When the prompt to choose the Apple Time Machine for backup was displayed I selected OK and Time Machine started the first backup. I took 35 minutes for around 90 GB. Thereafter, Time Machine has been backing up so far without a problem.
I have not impaled myself on the ‘sharp corners’ of the casing as mentioned by some reviewers, but as I don’t need mobility – using it exclusively for the iMac –this is not a problem, although I see what they mean. I have no horror stories to relate, and if the reliability of my previous LaCie drive is equaled by the P9223 I will have none. …

Excellent... when it works
I've had this product for some time now and for the most part it's great, it allows you to create a partition that you can use to I've had this product for some time now and for the most part it's great, it allows you to create a partition that you can use to connect to windows devices and it looks really good and professional.
However, I have encountered quite a serious issue which is that even if you are extremely careful and safely remove the disk overtime, for some unknown reason (to me anyway) the disk will not mount. For those not in the know, that basically means, your computer will not recognise the disk and therefore not be able to read it. My macbook (and every other device in my house that I can connect it to (windows PCs, TVs, other MacBooks of varying ages) can read the share partition but not the main partition. I have tried using disk utility which says that I need to repair the device and then it says that it cannot be repaired and I must restore it. The first time this happened, I somehow managed to fix it through pure luck (I think I connected it into my TV) without restoring it but this time I am having no such luck.
I am writing this review whilst I try and figure out how to fix the device as it has just happened for the second time and of course, I am reluctant to wipe the disk as I cannot retrieve any files from it currently. …

It works perfectly with Time Machine and transfers huge chunks of data without a hiccup. Runs like a charm, doesn't get hot, and hasn't disconnected once since I got it. The aluminium casing is lightweight and very solid. I have been carrying it in my laptop bag without a cover for several months now and it doesn't even have a scratch on it. …
