Every time I start up the hard drive icon appears on my desktop without fail. The speeds are excellent, and I can hardly hear the drive spinning, it's very quiet. Would recommend this product without hesitation.

      Great Drive

      I really like this drive, looks great and works great. The set up is easy thanks to the set up assistant that is pre installed (literally 2 minutes). The drive I really like this drive, looks great and works great. The set up is easy thanks to the set up assistant that is pre installed (literally 2 minutes). The drive is near enough silent and even goes to sleep when not in use (not like other drives that I have had that run constantly, which gets really annoying). This is an overall great drive that I would defiantly recommend.

      Great Product! Excellent Design, Storage and Overall Performance!!

Personally I do th I bought this hard drive approximately a month ago and has been a great back up for all of my college work, as well as all of my photography. Personally I do three coursework based subjects at college, which filled up my Macbook Pro Retina laptop... Lacie 3TB Porsche Design to the rescue!!! I am able to back up all of my files, whether they be long word documents, image, movies and applications such as the Adobe CS6 package I am able to store everything on the hard drive with no problems. Some people say that the hard drive has sharp edges and can be dangerous. Personally I do not think the hard drive is dangerous, even though the edges are (slightly) sharp, it is a desktop hard drive anyone and you will not need to move it about. Otherwise go for the 1TB or 2TB portable Lacie hard drive. The only down side I have found with the hard drive is the motor inside the hard drive is a little too noisy for my liking, but I have got used to in within the month of owning it. Overall, I would recommend this product to anyone who has a lot of things to back up, which is then safe and neatly packed into the Lacie hard drive.

      Too Noisy - did I get a bad one...?

Also looks good and transfer rates seem good on USB 3 but very slow on USB 2 which is to be expected. However the two failings are 1. The packaged software is poor - there is far more flexibility in the mac disk utility for partitioning, formatting etc if you want to use this drive for mac and windows backups/storage (i.e. exFAT) which is fine. 2. However the most annoying thing is the shear noise this thing makes - could be a one off bad drive - its for this reason mines going back to Apple for a refund.
