    This is the second one of these that I've purchased. I take it back and forth from work to home to backup stuff daily between two different computers. Works well and feels like it could take a beating without breaking. My only concern is that it is a mechanical hard drive and not ssd which means that it could fail at any time. Good idea to have more than one backup of important data, to be sure!

    When you need blazing fast storage and transfer rates this is where to go. I don't know why I didn't buy this product before now. Most of my music producer friends have these in there studio because it Saves space on their computer and it has a high speed rated to handle the most taxing files and projects.

    I put lots of backup files onto this drive. It fully stopped working after literally the third time plugging it into my computer. Worst purchase I've ever made. Now I have to see if Lacie will do data recovery and replace the drive, but I doubt I could even trust a replacement drive.

    I bought this to do a video conversion project, transferring ancient family video tapes to digital and need a place to rapidly dump converted videos. I'd read that Thunderbolt speed would help. I haven't started the project, but found the Orange Hard Drive is VERY zippy to Boot from!

    Great drive! Super fast transfer speeds. I love that it has a thunderbolt 2 cable built in. It's silent and rugged. The only thing I wish it has was a built in thunderbolt 3 cable too, but this it's a must have drive for photographers and videographers who transfer files between computers.

    This has been my go to portable HD for years due to its reliability, toughness and speed. I travel a lot and need massive space for professional production video storage and this HD has never failed me. I highly recommend for anyone looking for the best.

    Having Thunderbolt and USB-C all in one drive makes this built for the modern digital times. It's a solid drive and quick with uploads for files big and small. I do a lot of work that requires large files and this is perfect for me.

    Got this to help with storage on my MacBook with my hobby of photography. Taking pictures in RAW mode eats up storage fast and wanted something to have on photo shoots as well as at home to store everything after processing.

    Based on reviews I knew this drive would fit the bill. Could always be a little cheaper but love the built-in thunderbolt cable. Works great from the get go and would recommend to my friends. Use it with a MacBook Pro.

    Hands down the best external drive if you own a Mac. Heavy duty, dependable, and fast. I have used Lacie at work for years and have never had any issues. It costs a little more, but worth the extra money.

    This drive is super easy to use. It is reasonably priced and unlike other portable drives it has a gyro sensor that senses when it is falling to shut the drive down so it does not get damaged.

    LaCie hard drives are great and known for their ruggedness. You cannot go wrong with one of these and you'll be pleased you did. Lightning fast read/write speeds for what it is.

    Big difference, I upgraded from a USB to a thunderbolt connection and the speed is much better. I love the fact I can use this with USB-C as well.

    It worked great right out of the box. I was able to format it with partitions for both "timeline" and general storage on my Mac.
