Customer Reviews of LaCie Rikiki 500 GB Portable USB Hard Drive - Black
Works out of the box; no problems1/1/2011
Not much to say here except I opened the box, plugged it in, partitioned to two partitions -- one for Windows NTFS; I've yet to format the other as OSX partition but that' my plan. I put files on the NTFS partition and have copied things and made backups, etc. The unit is quiet and works fine -- it's seems quick but not sure if that's the norm (hence the 4 in the performance category). It looks nice, comes with a short USB cable (which can be good or bad); I like the short cable because I don't like extra clutter. Either way, after about 2 weeks of use, I love it and so far would recommend it.
