        This product is fantastic, it was easy setup and works well with TimeMachine, through install it automatically partitions for a PC setup as well! Aside from the cord being slightly short its a great price for such a large External HardDrive size.

          Comments about LaCie Porsche P'9233 3TB USB 3.0 Desktop Hard Drive:

          I am a photography student and I always seem to find myself need ing more and more storage space for my images. I am at about 87,000 images now and I needed some serious space to accomodate my workflow. Enter this 3tb monster by my favorite brand. It's not a Rugged, but for the space and the size it was a great deal. Plus I don't plan on traveling with this so the rugged option is not neccessary.

            I have tried several manufacturers and had problems. When you call tech support on WD get ready. Last time they called me "stupid" so I will never buy them again. Tried Lacie and love them. Had a problem initially with this unit (my fault) and despite it being totally my fault Lacie's tech suppoprt was awesome. I will buy again
