    LaCie Quadra reviews

    4TB d2 Quadra External Hard Drive (USB Type-A / FireWire 800 / eSATA) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 38.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good I've used a lot of drives in my day, being a video editor, and although I've had at least one drive failure from many of the top companies, including Lacie, G-tech, Seagate, and more, I still trust Lacie these days because out of probably 100 lacie drives (literally) I've only had one or two fail, while the rates are much higher for the other companies. The trick is to always have at least one redundant backup on another drive. So for the money, 4TB at $275 with usb 3.0 is pretty stunning. the drive is quiet, stays relatively cool, and the case is the sturdiest of them all. What ever you do DO NOT buy Rosewill HDD enclosures. I had 4 out of 4 of those fail me and through several attempted communications on my part I never heard back from them once.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's not horrible just annoying. Doesn't work great with iMac running El Capitan. It tends to block the computer from going to sleep mode and doesn't seem to ever want to go to sleep itself either. I don't know what could be the cause and I don't have the time to figure it out FYI I have 3 external hard drives from the same line of LaCie HD daisy chained via FireWire cables. The HD works fine in that I am able to save stuff on it and I can access my files but if you have a similar config as mine you'll get to learn the joy of ejecting all your hard drives and switching them off before putting your computer to sleep or turning it off. So yeah! Not great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LaCie drives are simply the best drives. Have used LaCie External drives to back up my data for years now; still have my very first LaCie drive,and it still works. As computers evolve to match larger operating system requirements in storage space, and data storage requirements for other programs also enlarge on hard drives; the size requirements of external hard drives enlarge to match, and I upgrade to larger Lacie drives. Have had Western Digital drives Fail, have had Seagate drives fail; have never had a LaCie drive fail. LaCie drives also always seem to have faster upload/download speeds than the other drive makers offer. Will stick with laCie drives; they work reliably.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Hard Drive for Home Use. This is the third LaCie d2 Quarda hard drive that I've added to my home system. The other two are 3 and 2 years old, respectively and have never had a problem. I keep them daisy-chained. They're used primarily for photo and movie back up. The Firewire 800 is fast enough for real time editing in iMovie. I expect that the USB3 interface will be quicker and I will be upgrading the computer soon to take advantage of that speed. The only drawback is when transferring large amounts of data from one to the other, even though they're linked with Firewire 800, the process has to go through the computer rather than drive-to-drive. This is a big drawback if you need to transfer a large amount of data.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LeCie Hard drives As a professional photographer the need to store images short & long term is very important. The first LeCie hard drive was the 160 GB rugged design, which I've had for 10 years. I'm shooting every day and carry it with me. Since then I've bought 2 more LaCie hard drive, one is a 250 GB & a 2 TB. The 4TB was a gift to my son who is an architect. His needs to store photographic images, designs and large file of plans. Having used LaCie hard drives for a long time this was the way to go. They are very reliable and easy to work with.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent choice for an external drive We bought this drive to replace a five year old 750GB d2 Quadra drive that had died on us. We use these drives for video editing and find them to be fast and reliable. The slim design makes them easy to store, and with multiple cable connector options, they can be connected to almost anything, but what I really like is the fan less design. With no fan, the drives are silent in operation and there is one less point of failure. The heat sink built into the case does an adequate job of keeping the drive cool, even when left powered on for long periods of time. We have purchased more than 20 of the d2 Quadra external drives over the past 6 years and experienced about a 5% failure rate with the older 750GB drives, which is rather high. The newer, larger drives have had less than a 1% failure rate within warranty, however. When a drive does fail under warranty, LaCie is a great company to deal with. You just send them the failed drive and they either repair or replace it with no hassles.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hard Drive for iMacs I really like the LaCie Hard drives and are perfect as backups for Macs. I have a 2TB (2yrs old) and needed additional space to backup photos. I just got 2(4TB). They are perfect for backup since they have the on-off switch at the back so you can turn them off when not in use and I'll use the 2nd one for backup. I got the USB 3.0 versus the thunderbolt even thought I'm aware that I will sacrifice speed, the old one works perfectly fine for my needs and the price difference is considerable when you get two. I gave it a 5 starts even though one of them came defective (clicking noise) and B&H replace it with a new one. The are very well built and an excellent external drives my old one it's been 100% reliable.
