4 out of 5 eggsSolid Home or Work Drive

This review is from: LaCie Porsche Design P'9230 3TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop Hard Drive 302003

Pros: Love that the drive is 7200rpm with 64mb cache! the internal drive is a seagate manufactured drive as i think a reviewer before me mentioned. why are these things i just wrote not on ever detailed or specs page for these drives is beyond me. finding out what rpm a drive is important!

-Love the strong casing (except the sharp edges, see cons)
-USB cable is of higher quality than some of my other drives (I have seagate/WD/Toshiba externals as well)
-Perfect for home or work use
-Light letting you know its being used is definitely better than any drive i have.
-really love that the drive comes unformatted and the format options that come with it are extremely cool! I format all my drives as soon as I get them to give them a good once over to make sure they wont fail. Ive had drives that would fail fairly soon during a format or before I formatted right off the bat they would fail within days or weeks of using them formatting them gives them a better chance of knowing if the drive is good and if there are any bad sectors.
-The drive case is definitely higher quality than any other drive ive used. and its pretty sleek looking as well
-Not particularly Loud, but not the quietest drive I own either

Cons: -Not great for on the road type use. Say you wanna bring a drive over to your buddies or move it around a lot on a regular basis. This drive is probably not for you. not that it couldn't withstand transport its just a tad heavy and the sharp edges aren't to great either.
-I think LaCie and Porsche Design would have most of us happier with softer edges those sharp edges do nothing having them be a bit more blunt wouldnt affect the protection and would definitely help on other things.
- some may not like being able to use the drive right out of the box I for one don't think thats a con but some may.
-The case is warmer to the touch than my other drives

Other Thoughts: in short, Its a solid drive and i would recommend this to anyone who needs to backup a large amount of storage.

I wouldnt recommend this to someone who just wants to have a drive to take around with them places. though its an external I believe this drive is better suited to stay at its place of use (home or work) LaCie has better drives more suited for constant transportation. As do other brands if you wanna go that way.

3 out of 5 eggsGood disk Performance, Case Lacking

This review is from: LaCie Porsche Design P'9230 3TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop Hard Drive 302003

Pros: Inside is ST3000DM001 9YN166, which is a 7200rpm disk. Throughput was snappy. (And since I was comparing with a USB3.0 PQI thumbdrive that took 4x longer, it seemed really Snappy). There is a power BUTTON, not a power switch on the rear. The DC Adapter (wall wort) has different plugs that attach to it for USA, UK, European, and Australia 2-prong.

Cons: Case is HEAVY but not particularly robust. Case has SHARP EDGES and CORNERS. The Drive electronics are 6mm from the bottom exterior and the ventilation perforations are quite large. If your desk is a mess, be careful not to set it on a paperclip...

The case gets warm.

Gray anodized finish with 100-grit graining means that your fingers leave bits of skin in the finish. You can clean it, but who wants to?

Power cord is cheap 22AWG 2 conductor. I guess Porsche Design stopped thinking about the accessories.

Other Thoughts: I use it for backup only and take it off the shelf weekly to use it. Formatting a 2.0GB partition on it NTFS took 3 hours 27 minutes. Out of the box it was formatted in 3 partitions and wanted you to use the LaCie partitioning tool.

5 out of 5 eggsFast & Sexy

This review is from: LaCie Porsche Design P'9230 3TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop Hard Drive 302003

Pros: I bought three of these drives for backup devices. The 7200 rpm internal drive is great as is the real power button on the back. The button comes in very handy sometimes. The drives are very good looking, and the LED isn't the blistering blazing LED of some other drives.

Cons: Price is on the higher side compared to other 3tb drives, but the 7200rpm is what you're paying for.
