With 3mm of strong aluminum casing surrounding the drive inside, you can be sure that your data is solidly protected. LaCie and Porsche worked together to combine form and function -resulting in a mobile drive that looks great (and works great)-no matter where you take it

                  I have no problem with this drive. It's fast and I love the design I was going to get the newer model that came out but seems like they did not have it in stock. So I had to get this and I don't regret it either.

                      The most beautiful portable drive I've ever seen, for what it's worth - reasonably priced and totally functional. Nothing to not like so far.

                      Comments about LaCie 1TB Porsche P'9220 USB 3.0 Mobile Hard Drive:

                      I use the Porsche with my MacBook Pro (retina) for video editing. So far so good. It is much faster than the USB 2.0 drive it is replacing.

                      This external drive looks real good, and it feels solid. I also found the setup software to be helpful, although I didn't use any of the bundled software.

                      The only problem I had was when I was trying to plug in the USB cable into the hard drive, I pressed too hard and actually pushed the whole hard drive out of the encasing. It didn't cause any problems, but I wasn't sure if it was supposed to be that loose.

                          Using the drive for Hard Drive storage (removing files and work off my work horse computer to travel back and forth).

                          The installation requires that you partition the new drive on the Mac OS. I'm looking forward to seeing better speed results with USB 3.0 on the new MacBook collection (as USB 2.0 computability speed was slower than what I had expected). Having not owned the drive too terribly long, it's difficult to assess or determine how reliable or compatible it might be over the the long haul or with different operating systems.

                          Aesthetically, very sleek. Light and well designed, though the metal has a sharp and easy niched edge. Dude, don't scratch my porsche.

                          Short, it drives well thus far and am looking forward getting good mileage. Thus far, reliably stores data (not sure if 3 weeks usage counts as reliable, but can't argue if it does work).

                              The Porsche name is appropriate; the design is sharp with clean lines and very fast drive.
                              I intend to buy 2 more as well as the desktop version!
                              Best drive I ever owned and I have bought many of them...

                              With this drive I can easily carry my whole music and photo archive with me, and that's great. The capacity is huge – 1 TB. This is more than enough for my needs. Plus I can say that working with the drive on the go is very easy. It is compact, easy to connect via USB, and a fast transfer speed saves you the pain of waiting for large files to be uploaded.

                                I needed to replace an old portable drive I've had for ages. It was too big, almost out of storage space and required an external power supply. I've found this LaCie model on internet and it is just perfect. It fits easily in my laptop bag and connects flawlessly to all my PCs. I love the password protection feature, I think it's really cool for a portable drive. The transfer rates are very fast. The design is beautiful. And it's compact and light!
