It seems like the price of external hard drives is relatively high nowadays. In light of this, I think $99 for this hard drive is reasonable. The enclosure is very solid and smooth. The hard drive is quiet. Transferring files is very easy (drag & drop). USB 3.0 file transfer speeds are awesome -- I was able to transfer about 160GB of data in about 25 mins, which would've taken forever if it were USB 2.0. Overall, I love this hard drive and it feels very luxurious (by external hard drive standards, at least). I Just hope it doesn't fail too soon like many other hard drives do (*cough* Western Digital My Passport Essential Portable External Hard Drive *cough*).

First connection to my MacBookPro was disappointing, Setup Assistant wasn't supported. After contacting LaCie Technicians and very prompt, professional, detailed navigation solved problem at no time at all.
Saving files, photos can be done very simple, click drag and drop on LaCie Drive, Very happy with product and already considering buying another one for iMac. I do recommend this product...

Good But Has its Weak Points Aug. 17 2011
By GLerner - Published on Amazon.com
This hard drive is definitely eye candy. It goes perfectly with the aluminum design of the Mac book Pro. It is small, holds a lot, and is relatively fast good enough for gaming. Don't expect the rubber feet that comes with it to last a week, they are rubbish. The usb seems loose, and sometimes I will move the hard drive and it will become disconnected with the computer. This is quite annoying when you are working on something or playing a game. If you havent saved, you've lost everything you were doing. I would, however definitely recommend this hard drive to fellow Mac users. It looks stunning, its worth the price, but the connection is iffy.

Excellent product; compact and well-designed Nov. 2 2011
By Ken - Published on Amazon.com

After several years, my old exterior hard drive which I used for backing up my MacBook failed completely. It was until then very dependable, and (I thought) very compact and tidy (although it had a firewire connection and needed its own power source). So, I looked around and found this and decided to give it a try. My opinion is that it's very good.

It is extremely compact and very good looking. It attaches to the MacBook using a USB 3 cable. My MacBook is not USB 3 enabled, but not a problem, inasmuch as the drive works very handily with USB 2 as well. The setup takes about 5 seconds: plug the USB port into the MacBook, plug the other, dedicated USB 3 end, to the Drive, and click. I had 58 gigs worth of data to transfer and it took a little less than an hour using Time Machine on the Mac. Since then, updates take about 30 seconds each. Works with Windows too, apparently.

Verdict? I'm going to buy a second one to keep with me when I go to the office or travel.

Great buy! Aug. 30 2011
By mercks - Published on Amazon.com
I am very happy with this drive. The installation only took me a couple of minutes, I've also set up the automatic backup in literally no time. The drive is very easy to use. I like everything about this model, from the software interface to the solid aluminum enclosure, and AES-256 data encryption.

Best portable hard drive I have ever seen! Aug. 13 2011
By 5.0 Engine - Published on Amazon.com

This LaCie Porche hard drive is perfection in any way one could measure.

The design is just a work of art, no other way to describe it. It has an elegant brushed aluminum exoskeleton, with edges that come to crisp points, and sharp corners.

You connect to your old USB 2.0 or the newer 3.0, and the drive spins up, except you can't hear or feel it. I was so vibration free, and quiet I couldn't even tell it was running, but it was, and it was blistering fast. I am not kidding here, the drive I received had ZERO vibration, and no noise, and I have never seen that in any mechanical hard drive in the 25 years I have been using them. It was almost as if it was an SSD.

On usb 2.0 on a decent Dell tower I got 33MB/sec read, and somewhat less on write. (write has to read too, which is slower for any drive). I did not have an usb 3.0 to test it on.

Drive comes formatted in NTFS, and a number of software programs.

It comes with a USB 3.0 cable, but you could use a cell phone type usb 2.0 cable (the one with the really small connector), and just connect it to the small half of the USB 3.0 socket on the drive. It will work fine.

I had no problem using the drive without any additional power source. It worked on ONE usb port. The drive ran so cool, that I could not imagine it taking too much power.

I did not use the software it came with. If you want encryption software I strongly recommend trucrypt, and use a very long password or keyfile.

Again, this drive is a work of art. LaCie you did well!

I have recently bought other portable hard drives bought from Toshiba and Western Digital both of which vibrated, made noise, and felt and looked cheap. The WD failed, and with the Toshiba 1TB is running like a weak back vibrator. It won't last either. I am now considering buying another LaCie Porche.

Beautiful, quiet, fast Oct. 29 2012
By Wunderschoen - Published on Amazon.com

I just got this drive as a replacement for my old backup drive (which, at 100 GB, was not nearly enough space). The previous drive was a LaCie as well and has lasted me 3-4 years with no problems, as has my LaCie flash drive. This drive, P9220, is beautiful and feels very heavy and well-made. It is absolutely silent and does not heat up at all if placed on a table. I was transferring files through a USB 2.0 connection (my laptop is about 3 years old and does not have a USB 3.0) and it took maybe 10 hours to transfer 260 GB of data. To me this seems very fast, considering the USB 2.0 connection. The drive worked wonderfully with my Mac and I had no problems with setup using the LaCie assistant or with setting it up as my Time Machine drive. I did set it up as a Mac-only drive, which lets me have more space and store larger files, but it is possible to set it up as a Mac/Windows-compatible drive or to make a partition and have both formats. I didn't use any of the included software. If it stops working I will update this review, but since this isn't going to be used continuously I doubt that will happen anytime soon.
