      I purchased the Porsche 4TB Hard Drive by LaCie recently, so I haven't been able to get a complete grasp of the product, which is the only reason I'm giving this product 4 stars.

      But from what I have experienced, I really like it. The instillation was extremely simple, the hard drive came with multiple plug ins to accommodate whatever country one is in (it plugs into the wall as well as the computer). It loads images a lot quicker than other drives that I've had, and it's super simple to store! As a back-up device, this hard drive exceeded my expectations.

      I purchased this to backup my photos after a recent crash. Easy setup sleek, quiet, compact. Ran the genie software for the initial backup and noticed the file counts between source and target we off. Did it a second time because my PC had gone to sleep during the first pass...same issue. Checked the logs for the backup and noticed that it was excluding some files (it tagged them as not unique)....."whiskey tango foxtrot". I turned off the smart mode and run another pass but still the same issue. What use is "backup" software if IT is making the decision on what files are unique or not. I am reformatting the drive and will find a better option for my backups.

            I have several of these Lacie Porsche drives and they are all great. This was my first 4TB one and I'm super happy about the extra TB of storage. Price is ideal for a reliable desktop drive. I have all three stacked on my work desk and they look clean and sleek and give me a total of 10TB of storage.

                      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!

                        Comments about LaCie 4TB F.A. Porsche Designed Desktop Hard Drive:

                        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.
