                It does need to be formatted for the OS of choice. It took the best part of a 24 hour day to copy almost 3 tBs of files. I can only imagine how long USB 2 would take. It is being used as a back up drive. Hopefully it will last many years.

                So far no negatives. Looks like it will be a good drive.

                This is my fourth Lacie harddrive I've bought, and 7th in total. My other externals ended up being too small so each has become a "safe" for my data. I needed a large (4TB) harddrive that would be very fast in order to stream and edit all of my music and videos as best as possible. This harddrive and the 3.0 usb does the job like a boss. Couldn't be easier to use out of the box, and as my other Lacie's have lasted 10+ years, I'm not worried about this one at all!

                  I needed somewhere to store all my finished photo and video projects. This gave me more then enough space to do so. It is actually smaller then it looks which is also a plus. I got it hooked up to my airport extreme so I can always access any file i want from my laptop or desk top. I will give it five stars once I able to put the USB 3 speeds to the test.
