3 out of 5 eggsIn response to above review

Pros: Haven't tried it yet, but have had good luck with LaCie drives

Cons: Haven't tried it yet, but have had good luck with LaCie drives.

Other Thoughts: To the reviewer above: Isn't there a 3-setting power button (off-auto-on) that allows you to choose whether or not you want auto power save mode? I would assume that the "auto" setting would be the one to avoid.

If this weren't the case I would not buy this drive, but I don't want to base my decision on misinformation. LaCie's website indicates that you can choose, and I can see the 3 position switch in the product photo of the rear of the drive here on Newegg.

Pros: It is pretty fast for its size. I mean it is a basic hard drive. Nothing special at all. Good casing and looks good. Heavy though.

Cons: The worst thing about this drive is its power save mode. I will be using a file on the drive in photoshop or something and after about 5-10 minutes of using the file, the hard drive goes into power save, and whenever i try to save it it would boot back up and take like 10 seconds until the save goes through because the drive is booting. It is EXTREMELY annoying and there is no way to disable it.

Aside from the terrible power save idea, Lacie support is ok. I was having trouble with the hard drive making a frequent annoying noise, and so I exchanged emails with a customer service rep who was very helpful for the amount he could do. If something is wrong with your drive, Lacie does NOT provide you with the box, etc to ship it in. My guy was nice enough to do so. After i shipped it and spent $12, i got it back a week later and it was not fixed even though they said it was. Very frustrating.

Folks I cannot emphasize the annoyance and inconvenience of the power save mode.

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend this product to anyone.
