    Perfect for my MacBook so far

    After I bought a new MacBook to replace my old MacBook Pro, I wanted to be sure to buy a reliable and easy to use hard drive to transfer all of my files from my old computer. After reading numerous reviews, I decided to go with LaCie 1TB. Once plugged into my MBP, it walked you through the setup and made it as easier than I could imagine. I set up a 500 GB partition for backup and the rest for regular storage. TimeMachine worked perfectly with this hard drive. I like how it had connections for both USB-C (for my new MacBook) and USB 3 for my old laptop. And despite other reviews, I have as yet had any issues with the connector cables; they have worked flawlessly. The design is also sleek. For the price, amount of space, and easy of use, I definitely recommend.

    Solid Replacement

    Replaced an edisting hard drive that was continually giving "improper shutdown" message even when simply plugged in, or after you know you properly ejected it. Probably was a cable issue with connectors worn with use, creating some movement and sending the signal. Couldn't find the old style cable and didn't want to risk that the drive was failing. Cable on the new drive has connectors that are a totally different design and appears much more secure.

    I purchased this USB C external hard drive to expand the storage on my new MacBook Pro w/touch bar. It works like a charm. Transfer speeds are super fast, andI love the fact it includes a USB C to USB C cable as well as a USB A to USB C cable. It definitely helps with transferring files from my old computer to the new one.

    I only ranked 4 stars because there is no way to know how good a portable drive is; they all seem the same until they fail (and only one, a Seagate, has ever done that to me). This one is my favorite because of its sleek design and I sometimes leave it out on my desk whereas the clunkier ones get stuffed away until I need them.

    Tiny Size...Large Drive

    External hard drives have become smaller and smaller...this one is tiny. I remember buying a "20 MB hard card" for my 1984 DOS computer and I thought I had died and gone to heaven with all that space. This little guy is 1/4 the size and holds a billion more pieces of information for about a 1/4 of the 1984 cost. Times have changed!

    I bought this drive to back up my old Mac computer it is sleek an matches my new computer and is very easy to use just plug and start downloading. It took 90 minutes to download 900.000 files incredible. I've never in 9 years ever backed up my files and this was a snap. Highly recommend.

    An expensive segate drive

    I question why this device is so expensive for what it is... it has USB c yet it does not incorporate a solid state drive additionally it says segate on the back so you might as well and save the money and get the segate. It does its job but it's not worth the money.

    I got this drive primarily for backing up my MacBook Pro. It's easy to set up and I partitioned half for Time Machine and the other half for file storage. It's a compact attractive looking unit and is working great tor my intended purpose.

    What can be said, an awesome looking External Hard Drive. Looks 100 times better than the Seagate sitting right next to it. The 2 terabyte model is a better value but for some reason BB doesn't stock it in store.

    I've only had it a short time, but I've already put it through the wringer. I've dropped it, gotten rained on, and my dog stepped on it, yet there's no scuffs or any data compromisation. Great product.

    This is the first time buying a Lacie hard drive, so I has a little hesitate. I was not disappointed as the drive is super fast. The only issue is price. Other than that this is a very good Buy!
