      I've been using numerous LaCie external USB drives for years, and have never had a single problem. I use them for backing up my primary system, and for external storage of multimedia. My system is Windows XP SP3, USB 2.0 (I got these drives for future compatibility with my next PC).

      I run file system tests weekly, complete surface tests and defrags quarterly, and check disk logs for errors, so when I have confidence in these drives, it's justified.

      The one down-side is that these drives are 5900 RPM instead of 7200, meaning that the combination of head-setting time, seek time, and latency time *may* be slower than if you used a 7200 drive, but that will likely happen only during operations like defrags or creating, copying, or moving many small files.

      I got 3 of these drives. Highly recommended.

      I have a Lacie Rugged that I love, and that works beautifully with both my Mac and PC laptops (after formatting).
      I needed a non-portable for home storage, and opted for this Porsche. It arrived and appears durable and well made, with quality cables. But my PC would not recognize it. After several attempts at downloading software updates, it still wouldn't load. So I tried it on my Mac. The Mac didn't initially recognize it either, but after a couple of attempts at formatting, and entering the disk utility, I received an error message that said that the "Disk needs repair". I contacted Lacie support, and while the agent is very knowledgable, my email chats were only answered every 24 hours (maybe due to the time difference). After 5 days of this, I've finally submitted for a refund, which is being processed by B&H. Sadly, I don't think I'll order it again, due to lack of confidence. There seems to be a glitch.

          I use this drive for backup purposes only, I've always been happy with LaCie drives. Never had one go down on me. I don't work directly off this drive, so I'm not sure how fast it is. But it runs quiet and has a small design for easy storage next to my other drives.

            Received the product before the designated delivery date!! :)

            Product was easy to connect and format for my Mac. Incredibly fast at saving and retrieving data. HD came with backup software which works better than the Mac standard Washing Machine.

            So far, so good. Have only used it for 2 weeks so if it continues to perform like it has I'll move the rating up to 5 stars.

                    Plug in and go! Super simple, fast, and it looks good too.
                    I am using the HD with a Mac and am very happy with the ease of use-I plugged in, Time Machine popped up and basically I clicked "yes" and "continue" a few times and within minutes it was backing up my Mac.
                    Durability? While still in the box, my dog pulled it off of a pretty high shelf (it had to have fallen) and chewed on the box for a while...it works fine!

                    Feels solid, runs cool and quiet, and looks good.
                    I thought it curious that there was no mention of the drive's specs. Mine turned out to be a Seagate 7200 RPM 64MB cache. Can't comment on the bundled software because I use Acronis.
                    You pay a significant per gigabyte premium compared to other brands, but I think it's worth it.

                            I have a new Dell XPS 8500 Special Edition with a 2TB HDD. I bought this LaCie 2TB External USB 3.0/2.0 for my backup drive.
                            It is quiet, stylish and built in power saving technology gives me piece of mind when I forget to shut it off.
                            I have owned other LaCie equipment in the past and am never disappointed.
                            Thank you LaCie and thank you B&H for your excellent customer service and providing your usual pleasant on-line purchasing experience.

                              I'm a part-time professional photographer & I purchased this as a primary back up for my photographs. It is tied to my Mac's Time Machine back-up program. Very easy to set up, runs quietly, transfers are quick and it looks great! It's been running strongly now for nine months. Everything I'd hoped for when ordering . . . .

                                I use this hard drive with my non-linear editing system and this product works great from lacie, also it has a enery savers option where it goes into standby when the drive is not active for longer than 5 minutes.

                                            The drive works fine now but I had a very difficult time in setting up. The setup process failed several times, their troubleshooting site was difficult to navigate. I would up have to search various tech forums on manual formatting.

                                              I just bought this for the Retina display MacBook Pro I have on order.
                                              Great machine, but there are no Firewire ports in it. Thunderbolt sounds great on paper, but there are few peripherals and they are expensive.No adapters out yet.

                                              The new MacBook Pro does have USB 3.0 ports. Supposed to be MUCH faster than Firewire, but I have to buy new hardware. I have had good experience with other LaCie products for the Mac. Long lasting. Reliable. Easy to set up. This one was up and running for the mac after just a couple of minutes out of the box.Looks great on the desktop.

                                              So far, I have only used it to back up data from my old Mac at usb 2.0 speeds. Not so impressive, but that is USB 2.0. When my new Mac with the USB 3.0 arrives, I should be able to evaluate the speed difference.

                                                So it has plenty of space. I have enough space for future and past projects. It runs super smoothly with my mac. I have yet to have a problem with it. It is not designed to be portable but neither is a lot of stuff I use. I have brought it on road trips and has spent quiet a bit of time in my backpack and is running perfect being said. I haven't dropped it or done anything stupid with it yet so I don't know how it would hold up to a good drop.
