5 out of 5 eggsGood drive

Pros: Enormous amount of space. Stable. Safe.

Cons: Haven't found any so far.

Other Thoughts: Saw a terrible review and that forced me to review this drive. I have had this drive setup in a business environment running critical backups for nearly 8 months with no issues of any kind. It runs on a USB port and it is decidedly quick even then. This drive is a good investment if you are looking for a safe way to back up or hold onto files.

1 out of 5 eggsTwice bitten, not recommended

Pros: It's big...

Cons: It's unreliable, tech support is menu-driven to the extreme. First one: Three different times had to re-initialize, attached to eSATA as RAID 5; worked for about two months, then failed fatally, losing all data. Tech support contacted for each problem, the first response was always totally off base, like they never read what I asked. Worse, when I was using a data recovery app to try to get the week's worth of data that I didn't have backed up, I found files that were NOT mine on a disk that was in theory new. Got an RMA replacement, decided NOT to connect to eSATA because so many crits of the Lacie drives seem to be when connected eSATA - and on firewire, the new drive is slow as a pig. Starts out a file transfer fast, then slows down and slows down until it's transferring 300K or so per sec. Yes, NOT KB/second, but K per sec... Back to tech support purgatory.

Other Thoughts: Meantime, the RAID5 box I bought from NewEgg while going through the whole nasty Lacie failure and data recovery, and slugged five 2TB drives into, runs fast on eSATA, and massively outperforms how the Lacie performed during the short time it seemed to be alive and working on my eSATA port. I have three other large storage RAID systems in the house that were easy to set up and have had no problems. The Lacie was so flaky it was the reason I had data losses despite being a devoted back up guy - the drive would randomly drop off line from time to time, so backing up was a pain. It's very disappointing.
