            This desktop drive is not the slimmest but I expect great reliability. I have had it for several months and it works fine so far. It is quite easy to set it up. The data transfer speed is about 1GB /minute, similar to other devices or Lacie portable. I use this as local archive of all photo, video, music, etc.

              Bought this unit to provide Time Machine backup for my Mac and the huge DV files from capturing home video. It was up and running within a few minutes.

              I need to find out if the unit can operate on its side because this would free up a few square inches of precious space on my desk, or maybe I will purchase longer USB 3.0 cable than the one supplied and put this up on a shelf.

              Great value...

                    I bought this to pair with my MacBook Pro Retina to store film footage. I formatted the hard drive using the LaCie software. This was a huge mistake. *I normally format all of my hard drives using my Mac's Disk Utility. Not sure what I was thinking.

                    When I would plug the Porsche into the MBPro Retina it would show that it was docked to my computer, but after five minutes or less, it would unmount. This happened several times. After this happened, I reformatted the Porsche hard drive using the Mac Disk Utility software. After that I haven't had a single problem.

                    Rule of thumb, do not use LaCie's software to format your hard drive. It just wont cut it, especially if you're in the field and offloading footage. Having your hard drive unmount in that time is the worst case scenario that will only stress you out even more.

                    Besides the software issue, the LaCie Porsche has been a solid hard drive. the 3 TB of space is great and exactly what I need. The build quality is solid much like the rest of the LaCie line. I highly recommend this.

                      I first purchased the 2TB model from B&H and use it on a daily basis for photos, Movies and clips, the drive is impressive and here in Afghanistan with the heat and dust it performs well, Data transfer is quick and with USB 3.0 even quicker, with that I decided on the 3 TB because the 2TB was excellent and my new drive does not disappoint, the look is clean and sharp and would definitely look good next to a TV for watching movie or on someone's desk.
