Pros:

Looks nice. The drive itself worked fine. Rugged orange rubber bumper is a good idea.

Cons:

Worked for about 9 months, then the connector began to act spotty. It became difficult to maintain obtain or maintain a connection.

The special funky and delicate USB connector that manufacturers seem to be so fond of now was just not making good contact anymore.

Tried different cables, but the connector in the drive case itself is bad.

Other Thoughts:

No way to even salvage the drive inside, as LaCie uses the same type of weird screws with pins in the middle that Apple uses on their products to lock them down.
