I got it in just a couple of days, plugged it in and started copying files all over the place! Works like a charm. My only complaint is the really short 1-foot USB cable that came with it. Other than that, I like it. Spiffy and speedy, and it has an on/off switch! Sweet!

I already reviewed this drive before. I reported that 2 out 3 drives had failed. Well, the third drive also failed; fortunately, I managed to get the drive to mount one last time and I got my data off. I returned the drive to LaCie and they sent me a new one. When I tried to use the drive, it was dead on arrival! I tried all the standard tricks (different computers, cables, power adapters, disk utilities) plus everything LaCie told me to do and nothing worked. Unfortunately for me, I had waited several months before I tried to use the drive. And now, the original drive is out of warranty, so LaCie will not replace the dead drive they shipped to me. So that makes 4 dead drives (all mechanical failures with complete loss of data) and one working drive (which itself is a replacement). That makes an 80% failure rate. Unless your data is disposable, do not buy one of these drives.
