The best usb / Firewire HD
This review is from: LACIE Mobile Design by F.A. Porsche 80GB 5400 RPM 2.5" USB 2.0 / Firewire400 External Hard Drive Model 300765
Pros: Comes with everything you need to start using it right out of the box. USB cable Firewire cable and a 2nd USB cable for the older USB 1.0 computer to add additional power for the drive to run. This is about the 2nd drive I have bought from Lacie and not yet had a problem with it(other then dropping them). I use to work for Mount Laurel BOE as a IT guy and re-image Ibooks with them became attached to the unit. Therefore, ended up buying one for personal use now looking to add another to the collection.
Cons: Some surfaces (like wood) the hard drive will vibrate but the rubber feet do a great job cutting the sound back. Other then that they don't like to fall. If you drop them running forget about it. But the little bump around in the book bag if using it for school you will be fine.
Other Thoughts: My friend had one 7200 rpm lasted only a year, usb controller card went bad. However, I have not had an issue with it. Even when I dropped it Lacie was willing to replaced it (note I have ordered many other items from them).
