Not Great 12/19/2013
This review is from: LaCie External Hard Drive Model 301984
Lots of storage, compact and rugged. Software is simple and easy to use.
Purchased so I could use with my Dell laptop's Firewire port. Sadly, after purchasing this item and a $25 Firewire cable, LaCie's tech support tells me it does not work with my Firewire port. This should be clear in the specs and the manual. It is never mentioned. The issue is that unless you use a 9-pin Firewire to 9-pin Firewire cable you are out of luck. I have a 4 PIN Firewire in my laptop as does most of the world. I've never even seen a 9-PIN Firewire on a laptop. This is an absurd requirement for a decide typically used to backup a laptop computer.
I feel very misled and feel that LeCie is not being upfront in their marketing.
Would not purchase.
