    Very Good Performance

    External hard drives are something that is a must if you are in biz of the Pro DJ. I have gone through so many external hard drives I lost count. Recently I purchased this GEM of a hard drive and honestly love the performance and the design. It integrated well with my Macbook Pro 2012 and loads tracks in blazing speed. At the moment thunderbolt is still out of reach of many and I am not excluded from this group so I will continue to get gear that fits and is cost effective.. I actually paid less than advertised due to an error in the store.. I picked this one of for $109.00 at my local best buy and have to say they stand behind what they sell. Bravo to lacie for this one...

    It's mostly in the design

    Overall, it's a very great USB 3.0 drive and you will get USB 3.0 speeds. First off for those looking for a cheap USB drive for maximum speed, volume, dollar ratio I would look elsewhere. This is mostly a drive where you are paying a premium for the design! And it certainly does a good job. The aluminum case does seem to help dissipate heat well. Drive is also fairly silent compared to my old Seagate portable drive. Everything is fairly typical of any USB 3.0 drive, nothing exceptional. One problem I seem to be having is the USB cable connection at the PC end sometimes seems to disconnect itself. And the cable has to be pushed around to regain connection. I also have a desktop Porsche Design USB 3.0 Drive and I don't have any problems what so ever with the larger one. Nonetheless if I don't move the drive around which it shouldn't be moving around in the first place, everything works just fine.

    For over a year my office has felt secure knowing that every night all our files were backed up on our LaCie Porsche Design P’9220. Over the weekend our system crashed requiring us to use the backup for the first time to restore. It turns out all of the saves over the last two months were for nothing. Literally thousands of man-hours of work has been lost because of this. Then upon trying to start fresh and set up a new backup I am unable to save anything as the software wont progress past the “monitoring changes” step. Over a week has passed with multiple attempts being made to contact LaCie’s customer support with ZERO response other than an automated email saying the request was submitted. Overall I would suggest only purchasing this product if you enjoy throwing away time and money.

    I often have to work while on the road. A reliable portable drive is my most important requirement for successful work. Just over two months ago I upgraded from an older external drive to Porsche Design and I am very happy with it. The capacity is greater (my old disk was 320 GB) and it's much more convenient to work with. Everything is faster, simpler, the drive is silent and almost does not heat. I particularly like the sturdy casing, which also looks great. Even though I always carry the disk with me, without any extra case, it's not scratched and looks like new.

    I bought this external drive to store large photo files so I dont bog down my laptops hard drive. I teach photography and sometimes a computer is needed in the field. This drive as well as all LaCie drives sets up easy and just works. They do make the Rugged model which has a rubber cover over it for field use but its $70.00 more. I just sewed together a piece of neoprene with some velcro ($2.00) and it basically does the same thing as the cover on the rugged. Keep in mind... other brands may be less in price for the same amount of storage, but you get what you pay for. Do you really want to risk your files ?

    Easy to set up

    My old external hard drive was a LaCie Porche 250GB. It lasted almost 10 years before starting to act up. So I went with another LaCie as a replacement. I have an iMac. This hard drive was very easy to set up. I partitioned it and use a 700GB section for Time Machine; the other 300GB for backing up files and folders that I need easy access to. I store thousands of large images, but not much music, videos or games, so I think this will have plenty of space for my needs. It's small, and looks nice sitting on the base of my iMac. I've been using it for just over a month with no issues.

    Awesome external if you don't mind configuring

    I love this external. Sleek design with good capacity and excellent speeds via USB 3.0. A bit pricier than externals of the same capacity but you get what you pay for and I would gladly purchase again. Requires a little initial configuring to set aside space for transfers between different operating systems and a few other details but relatively straight forward. Plug and play after the initial setup. Runs absolutely silent. Does not require external power source. Definitely a solid choice if you don't mind spending a bit more.

    When I bought this we were a PC only family. When setting up the drive it allows you to partition it into multiple drives, 1 of which can be compatible with a MAC. i decided to go with that option (just in case). I loaded all my pictures on the "Shared" drive. About 6 months later, my wife wound up getting a Mac Book. I was able to easily move her iTunes and the pictures over. I can use it back up files on both OS's. Very happy with it. So far (6+ months ??) very fast and reliable. I use it with both USB 2.0 and 3.0.

    Excellent external drive for storing iTunes

    Great for Mac. I store my entire (huge) iTunes library of 75,000 songs on it. Very quiet and fast. Liked it so much, I bought s second one as a backup to the first. It also looks really cool to match the MAC design. The USB 3 option is extremely fast when searching, reading or writing. I highly advise getting this one as it's much more reliable than a discount drive like WD or Seagate. This LaCie is very portable, if need be. Last it is completely non-intrusive to you computer as so many drives are, this stays way from all system programs unless instructed.

    Great External Harddrive

    I needed to transfer two old computers information onto an external hard drive before my computer crashed. I transferred more than 8,000 songs and have only used 5% of the capacity of the drive. The transfer was much faster than the old external hard drive that I had owned. This hard drive has a turbo mode which is really great at transferring recently changed and new documents from your computer to the hard drive. The software makes it simple to use, fast and convenient.

    Works well, but I should have gotten a larger one

    I use this for my system backups. I formatted the drive right out of the box to get rid of their software and to have the maximum space possible available. I've had it a couple of months. It's very quiet. Backups happen at night and I can read them fine. I would have gotten larger, but the larger drives weren't rated very well. That's my only complaint. So if a 1GB external drive is what you need this seems like a great unit so far.

    I purchased a Seagate go flex 1tb hard drive & it was very unreliable. Seagate sent me another one & that one started acting up right away, just like the first one. Would not let me retrieve / access my files (the whole point of having an external hard drive). So I asked around & read a lot of reviews. Everyone said get the Lacie they're the best & so far it is is great.

    I was immediately drawn to the design of the drive when I saw it in the store. After looking at a variety of drives I decided to spring for it and I definitely am not disappointed. On top of the fantastic build quality the drive is extremely easy to setup with Lacie's set up program. I have my Macbook bootcamped so I was able to configure the drive to work with both operating systems in a snap. Bottom line is I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a new external!

    I love the slim line and the silver, scratch resistant cover. It did get knocked around a little bit in my vest, but overall has held up very well. Love the amount of storage!! I use it to download photographs as my 2nd back up and have found it to be quite quick at retreaving and processing to my HP Folio...My Folio doesn't have much internal memory, so I find myself working off my EHD! Love it!

    I have owned my external hard drive that is similar to this one for over a year now and I have had no problems with it! It holds tons of space, I've had it plugged in all day with no issues whatsoever. I bought this one for my wife, and she has been able to store all of her information on her computer and make back ups for everything that she has. I hope this review helps!

    External drive as a very nice look and is very small to carry around. Installation was done quickly and was very easy to do. In less than 2 hours, I completed a back-up of all my pictures and videos. I am not worry about the quality since I have 2 LaCie external hard drive that I have using for more than 8 years. Very pleased with my purchase and the great price at BestBuy.

    I always been cheap and never saw the point on backing up my things...glad I ended up pushing myself to buy this external drive. I use half of it to back things from my MacBook and the other half to edit videos. It is a great investment since some laptops need the extra memory space as well as you need to backup your things.

    Great Portable Drive

    I'm not a heavy media user, but I needed a new hard drive with enough space for all my backups and whatever I'm watching at the time. The drive is lightweight and slips neatly into my bag next to my laptop. The backup assistant makes it quick and easy to use. The USB3 speeds are great. The build quality is excellent, everything is solid and works just as you would expect.

    The drive has a generous 1 TB capacity and very high speeds with USB 3.0. It runs cool and quiet. The aluminum casing dissipates heat quite efficiently. The Backup Assistant makes it easy to setup automatic backup. IMHO this is a great product for the price.

    I had it for 3 months and failed. Noise came out from it, no respond after. Called Lacie for warranty coverage and got replacement for free, shipping on my own. Customer service was ok with female operator but 2 guys are ruined and inpatient. overall, can't rely on product and customer services wasn't really great. I learned. Thanks...
