Expensive but worth it.9/18/2012
The build quality is superb - its built like a tank. Since it also uses firewire it is faster than the USB 1TB LaCie it replaced. The drive does makes a sound when starting up but remains fairly quiet while in use. It's Mac ready out of the box and comes with all the cables you need.
Seems to be plug n play product. Easy to install, automatic TimeMachine backup setup. Used to replace WD 2TB book disk which locked me out with an "unable to write" message. Had previous problem with WD drive, so far the Hitachi is performing well - seems to be a lot faster than the WD drive.
