    I bought this on clearance at Best Buy because the new 3.0 USB version had come out. For under $60 it seemed like a much better deal than the toshiba drives. Well I got the drive and loaded my music onto it and let it sit by my computer. The 3rd morning I turned on my computer and the drive started making weird whirring sounds and faint beeps. The whirring went away and the beeps got louder. I looked it up and Lacie drives that are about to fail make this sound. I used it for another day and it would mount and unmount 4-5 times every minute and I could not get my songs back off of it.. I tried it on another computer same result. Returned the drive and now I have one of the toshibas.. I am sure that I probably would not have had a problem if they had switched it for another LaCie, but they didn't have anymore and since they were on closeout they weren't getting anymore..

    Great, but expensive

    The good: Firewire 800 is surprisingly fast. I recently made a complete backup of my system using Carbon Copy Cloner so I could use all my files and programs while my MacBook Pro was in for repairs. (a coffee spill which Apple fixed for free, even out of warrantee). The drive worked flawlessly as I booted, at different times, from 3 Mac computers. The bad: the price The ugly: Orange?

    I bought this for an external drive that I can boot from. It is a great drive and the firewire 800 is so much faster than using the usb interface. I love it.

    This unit is fast and user friendly. I use it as a repository for my photo files and it's been great so far.
