This is not my first Lacie drive. I already have an older 500 gig d2 drive and needed more storage for my photos. Both drives work well and are very reliable. I have them daisy chained to one another. No problems at all. As far as I'm concerned they are rock solid!
great for backup5/30/2011
Works very well for backup. Simple to use, solid, all metal (no plastic) aluminum body. I bought it for home use, but the drive looks and performs like professional storage solution. Well worth the money in my opinion.
Excellent value for money5/23/2011
Excellent product, works exactly as advertised. The design is nice, it's very quiet and it doesn't get hot even after hours of use. Excellent value for money.
Excellent desktop hard drive4/26/2011
Very nice choice of interfaces: USB, Fireware 400, Firewire 800 and Sata. Easy to setup. Excellent quality. Fair price.
I have tried different hard drives. LaCie d2 is my preferred HD model so far. I've been using these drives for several years now and not a single problem. I use them to back-up my pictures, home video, MP3s, etc. Highly recommended!
Excellent External HD2/10/2011
This is a very nice product. I've bought my first d2 drive a year ago, it worked just fine and because I haven't had any issues with it and it has proven to be reliable, I bought the second one. I highly recommend this model.
I have been very pleased with this hard drive. It's very easy to set-up and works and looks great! This is my first d2 drive and it is perfect for my backup and photo/video needs. The software that comes with the drive is also good.
This is my third LaCie drive and I love them. Never had a problem. Always easy to setup and use, no noise, good transfer speed. Highly recommended!
Great backup drive11/20/2010
I use this drive to store family photos and videos, and as a backup drive for my computer. The drive works very fast. I think it's great that I can customize the power management thanks to the three-position power switch. And I can barely hear the drive when it works. Another great product from LaCie.
I love this hard drive10/22/2010
I work for a designer agency. I have tons of photos and designer files. Reliable backup is very important for me. I was looking for a simple-to-use, good quality hard drive with good automated backup software. This drive has it all and is very quiet, fast (especially with Firewire 800) and well designed. The setup was easy. The software works like a charm. I'm planning to buy another one. Highly recommended!
This is the third such drive that I have purchased. They seem to be very reliable. They are not that loud and they do go into a kind of sleep mode after awhile. I would buy another one.
So far so good1/28/2009
This hard drive is working very well. I am using a MacPro.
