This external hard drive is rock solid. It has an aluminium metal case probably for better heat dissipation and is assembled in U.S.A. It does not get its power from the USB port. It comes with its own power adapter like a cell phone charger. In addition, Lacie provides many different power plugs that you can fit on its power adapter so that you can use this drive in almost any country in the world. I am sure you can at least use it in UK, HK and China. Its dimension is about 4.5" X 7" X 1.25" and weighs approx. 2 lb. Heavier than the plastic external drives but much much more robust. Its operation is very quiet. There is a blue light on the top near the back. When blinking, it indicates it is in R/W operation. It is supposed to be used with USB 3.0 but is compatible with USB 2.0. It also comes with a complementary application called Wuala by Lacie. It allows you to backup your files to the cloud and make it accessible from anywhere. I have not tried it yet and cannot provide you more detail, but I think you get 1 year of 10GB free online storage. Overall, this is an excellent product. Highly recommended.

I love the LaCie product. Runs quiet and stays cool. No problems so far! It worked so well, I had to buy a second one!

Solidly built, works exactly as promised. Excellent performance. Perhaps the best 'buy' for a 2TB external hard drive on the market.

I never had trouble with a Lacie HD. A very good product.

If you're wondering if you should buy this drive or not, everything that I bought from Lacie was a good buy.

A+

LaCie is a little pricier than most hard drives; however, it's totally worth it. They are reliable and extremely fast pieces of equipment. Don't have to worry about this hard drive failing - ever.

I got this 2TB hard drive at $97. Amazing price for the best hard drive I have ever used! Far better than Iomega.
