3 out of 5 eggs Good disk Performance, Case Lacking 12/17/2012

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


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.


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.
