I gave this 2 stars because the drive is fantastic, and fast, and runs cool. But I docked it 3 stars for not working anymore.
It's pretty, but I don't need it to be pretty, I need it to hold files ... which it is currently doing. It's holding them hostage.
**UPDATE: Both drives aren't reading now. Tested 2 different cables. Tested 3 different computers. This is super frustrating.**
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.
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.
