    Minor Caveats

    • Written by Sal G from RUTLAND

    There is no on/off switch on this drive. Thus, I take it that it is always on as long as the computer is on (and not sleeping).
    Also, there is no light on the drive (i.e. nothing that indicates when the drive the reading/writing).

    The drive itself seems to work fine with Mac OS 10.13.6 and using the included USB C to USB 3 adapter.

    Dependable at a very good price

    I've had this unit for about 3 weeks. I plug it directly into my MacBook Pro (with native USB-C inputs) and it always mounts properly and serves flawlessly as a Time Machine backup. It is silent, another plus. I tried it with the Apple USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter and found that it was not compatible. Also, I have continued to use the Apple power source because the LaCie 8 TB unit does not reliably power the laptop on its own. Nonetheless, a great unit despite the caveats. Recommended.
