    Would have rated 5 stars, but USB c/c cord wouldn't stay connected to 2018 MacBook Air. Required force to get connection that I feared would damage my laptop and would not be something I was willing to chance. Have got going now with the included usbc/usb3 cord and a 3rd party usbc/usb3 adapter

    Love the quality and design of drive. The color also matches perfect with my space gray MacBook Pro. Got this to back up my files with TimeMachine. Was easy to setup and love that it works with my thunderbolt 3 cable. Drive is really fast, does not heat up and is really quiet. I also like that the icon for the drive is the image of the actual drive. The only con I did have was that on DiskUtility, the drive shows up as an SSD even though this is a regular hdd.

    I feel this is a good drive. I think for the price and size, it was fair. If I recall correctly, Best Buy price matched an online price of $10 less, so that was neat. The formatting is easy enough, but my Mac didn't like sharing the partition. I think that is a Mac issue though (M1 Mac mini, I don't recommend it, they are sort of the Chromebook of the Mac world.) I have been using this steadily for backups and recently for live video, both cases it's been fast and reliable. Recommended.

    Amazing product, easy to use, and great design. It Reminds me of my other LaCie product that is designed by Porsche. I would definitely recommend this product.

    Good for storage but not for editing large files. I bought this to use after some serious debate. I edit large files on Lightroom and Photoshop. I purchased a6TB G-drive and after 3 months it stopped working. Customer service on it said they would replace it but I'd loose all the information. I pulled the HD out of the casing and put it in a dock and it works. It wasn't the power supply but the part inside that powers the drive. So I bought this LaCie to do one portion of photo editing. I thought it would be ok and it does work, but it is SLOW! I work with 60mb files in Lightroom and often have to wait for the drive to communicate. I'm using a 2021 MacBook Pro with M1 chip. So for storage and small files, this is probably a good option. But for large files and quick editing. Look elsewhere.

    The LaCie 2TB external drive is super sleek, ultra light, low/no heat, and lightning fast for my primary use of it as a backup photo and video data storage and transfer device. It looks great with the gray color scheme matching most metallic Mac or PCs (however the external shell as far as I can tell isn't actually metal). Comes with USB2.0 and USB-C/3.0 cables for most computers.

    Have been using this for several months and fairly easy to use each time I do a backup of my laptop the new files are backed up. When using some other applications it created a new file for each backup using space unnecessarily. The Toolkit updates automatically which is nice. Wish it updated backups of videos and pictures of other devices via WiFi.

    Before upgrading my computer to the newest operating system, I wanted to keep a Time Machine image in case I needed to restore to the older operating system. Therefore, I purchased a this drive to create a new time machine back up. The major selling point for this drive was the USB C interface on the drive itself. Similar hard drive that sell at a lower price have a mini USB 3.0 connector. Mini and micro USB 3.0 connectors are not as common. It is very easy to use this drive with a USB A shape connector if necessary. Because the drive enclosed in metal, it would have been nice to have rubber feet on the bottom. It could easily scratch wood or plastic surfaces. Other than matching the color of Apple computers, the beauty of the metal enclosure is that it acts as a heat sink to keep the drive cool. The enclosure may become warm, but it is because it is dissipating the heat properly.

    So far so good! My Mac laptop is getting old so I'm very careful to back it up regularly. I was using a different brand of external back up drive which failed - twice - so I switched to LaCie (which I used many years ago) and so far with this new LaCie everything seems to be working well - at least after a couple of months. Again, so far so good!

    I bought this to back up my 2018 Mac Book Pro. I did extensive research and decided on this LaCie drive. It was easy to set up and was very fast with data transfer. I highly recommend this for Mac users :)

    I bought this for additional storage since my six-year old MacBook Air's internal drive was filling up. I basically just plugged this into the Mac and went to work. Works very well and fast.

    I love my LaCie Mobile drive. I am using it for Time Machine backups with my Mac and it has been working perfectly. It was easy to set up. I like the USB-C cable -- I don't have to use an adapter for my MacBook. I like the small size and sturdy feel of the drive.
