1 out of 5 eggsDied after 2 days

Pros: Looks funky!

Cons: I was using this drive for Time Machine backups, and it died after 2 days! I always unmounted it properly before detaching it from my laptop, and yet it borked. I'm switching to a firewire drive from now on.

1 out of 5 eggsBad Software

Pros: None

Cons: This is the second Lacie Grand external i've recieved after returning the first because it wouldn't format for windows.
The second one i followed the direcrtions very carefully. Options for formatting the drive is exFAT I've never heard of it. Plus it will not work with windows. I had to onto their web site to technical support,. They have directions to work through the computers BIOS to unprogram the drive and reformat it NTFS for windows. Well writen directions but still hade to figure out the correct drive and other info. I'm no computer expert. I spent 6 hours to get it reformated. Or I should say it's slowely reformatting now.
I'm hoping it works after all that work & time.

3 out of 5 eggsNot good for unattended backups

Pros: Very fast. Big storage.

Cons: The unit powers itself off after some period of time, forcing me to press the power button on the back to turn it back on.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this to use as an unattended backup solution on a server. Unfortunately, it shuts itself off, and will not turn back on until I press the power button on the back. This makes it useless for my application. I should have done more homework before purchasing.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Pleased

Pros: Drive runs silent and cool even during my initial batch transfers of large amounts of data. Write speed is consistent with other USB 2.0 devices I have experience with.

Excellent price for the amount of storage.

Power unit comes with adapters for US, EU, and JP sockets.

Bonus points for how well the design complements my MacBook Pro.

Cons: Power cord itself is entirely too short, might have to run an extension if the outlet is not close enough to your computer.

The power button is on the back of the drive, and the on/off indicator is on the front, this is a minor issue that has bugged me on this and my other LaCie external HDDs.

The LaCie setup assistant is extremely limited, if you know what you're doing, you're best off doing this with your OS's normal means of formatting.

Other Thoughts: I am a longtime user of LaCie brand external HDDs, and have yet to experience any issues with any of them. This drive is still new, but seems to be performing at the high standard that my previous experiences with LaCie have led me to expect.

Newegg's shipping was prompt as always, I recommend this product to others.
