      Does exactly what I want

      I needed a secure and reliable drive for backup. I bought this one and I'm very happy with it. The design is excellent and the drive works very well. It's quiet I needed a secure and reliable drive for backup. I bought this one and I'm very happy with it. The design is excellent and the drive works very well. It's quiet and fast. It came with all necessary cables and 10GB of cloud storage. I think it's an excellent solution.

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 easy to set up and operate. How 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.

      Terrible

It consistently unplugs itself, if I move it even a tiny bit then no chance, quite often even when it's stationary, I'll come back and find an unexpectedly ejected message. Portable? It's not even good enough to stay still let alone move. Useless, very very disappointed.

It had been working fine, but then suddenly my laptop has stopped recognising it and I have been unable to get any of my data off it since. I have looked into this issue and found that it is a very common problem with these hard drives and no one seems to be offering any help or advice on how to sort this.

      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 going strong) has been retired to 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.
