This review is from: LaCie Porsche Design P'9230 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop Hard Drive 302002
Pros: Nice enclosure dissipates heat well.
Drive seems responsive when running.
Cons: TERRIBLE socket for the data cable on the back of this drive. When first opened I thought it was DOA but a little wiggling and extra pressure on the data cable at the drive end soon shows that it just has a lousy connection. The drive does not spin up until the data cable is connected correctly.
Totally unacceptable as you barely have to move the drive and it loses connection. Foolishly, I waited more than a month to open it so now no RMA. It is now relegated to a backup drive on the network with the cable kept in place with duct tape.
File this one under "how to totally screw up a great product for the sake of a lousy 5c plug"
Other Thoughts: I am VERY disappointed with this item. It does not do NewEgg or Lacie any favors to sell this kind of stuff with clearly such poor quality control.
I have a 4TB 2big Thunderbolt and was expecting the same build quality I experienced with that, and while it is a nice enclosure the sloppy assembly of the small amount of electronics needed for the interface makes this a complete waste of time. I was thinking of getting two originally but now I will have to seriously rethink.
