      IMPRESSIVE SLEEK DESIGN & ENGINEERING

      WOW - this mobile drive is an elegant piece of engineering. The LaCie Porsche Design have created a very stylish, neat, fast & compact mobile drive. It is hou WOW - this mobile drive is an elegant piece of engineering. The LaCie Porsche Design have created a very stylish, neat, fast & compact mobile drive. It is housed in a clean matt steel case that feels robust & tough. A beautiful discreet led white light illuminates on one corner indicating that the drive is operating & connected, it only comes on when it is functioning. The USB 3 connection is very fast & I am using this 2TB drive to store my movies , u-tube presentations & my I-TUNES music files. The drive comes pre-loaded with MAC combatible software & it is ready to go as soon as you plug it in to your computer. I highly recommend this portable drive you will be impressed when you see it for the first time & start using it . Sadly LaCie missed an opportunity to continue with the style & design of this product by not providing an elegant storage case to put the drive in when it is not in use & for carrying it safetly in your back pack or briefcase, a minor irratation that is an easy fix. ENJOY

      Don't upgrade to a new MacOS

      Worked fine until I upgraded. Partitions would not mount automatically after upgrade. Terrible technical support on this device.

      quiet, fast, compact and bus-powered: perfect for me

      I bought this to replace a LaCie 500GB Porsche Design drive that continues to perform well; I just need a bit bigger drive. This drive (and its predecessor) are I bought this to replace a LaCie 500GB Porsche Design drive that continues to perform well; I just need a bit bigger drive. This drive (and its predecessor) are fast, quiet, compact, and bus-powered. The 2 TB drive is a bit thicker than the 500Gb drive from 2 yrs ago but still the perfect size to slip into a pocket of your laptop carrying case. Brightness of the LED on the panel is not an issue for me (I have had this issue with other gear that had distractingly bright LED indicators, but I don't find that to be the case with either of the LaCie drives I own.) Any drive or any piece of electronic gear can fail, and I do sympathize with those who have had that experience. My own experience with these drives has been good. In fact, I'm planning to buy another, probably larger than this one.
