      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.

      Cable keeps falling out!

      The insertion depth of the cable to the drive must be less than 1mm. So rugged, yet a gentle breeze will drop the cable, disconnecting the drive. It may be a go The insertion depth of the cable to the drive must be less than 1mm. So rugged, yet a gentle breeze will drop the cable, disconnecting the drive. It may be a good drive if you can keep it connected, but infuriorating otherwise. Test your aggression levels with this mood destroyer. I wanted it for my photography when out on a trip, definitely rather get anything else.

      Doesn't work

      Used approximately six times and then the unit failed. It may be the cable, it may be the USB plug, it may be the unit. Nonetheless, it doesn't work. The har Used approximately six times and then the unit failed. It may be the cable, it may be the USB plug, it may be the unit. Nonetheless, it doesn't work. The hard drive may be rugged but if information isn't stored ruggedness doesn't matter.
