This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro - 64-bit
Pros: Fast, clean, lean and mean. (except, of course, that those excellent qualities are overshadowed by the user interface).
Cons: It's a shame that Microsoft insisted on trying to shove a touch interface down the throats of professionals who use desktop and workstation systems with large monitors. This OS is fine on a tablet or even a hybrid device--I happen to own a Surface Pro 2--but it stinks for those of us who also do real work and need the precision and multitasking capabilities of a true windowed OS with a mouse and keyboard.
Other Thoughts: If you could opt out of the touch interface on workstation/desktop/laptop systems where touch is not needed or wanted, this OS offers many improvements. It's too bad that they're all overshadowed by the useless GUI. (Note to fanboys: Save the simple, smug retort that all one needs to do is click on the desktop tile. You and I both know that the issue is more complex than that.)READ FULL REVIEW
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.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nothing that I can see.
Cons: Didn't work. I followed the instructions assiduously.. Nothing. Dead. Uninstalled driver, rebooted, ran uninstall from Control Panel, ran registry cleaner, rebooted, and tried again. Nothing. Dead. Sending it back now as soon as I get RMA.
twice. Dead, dead, dead.
Other Thoughts: Seems as though quality assurance is lacking with this manufacturer. Complete waste of my time. :(READ FULL REVIEW
