LaCie 500GB Rugged Triple Portable External Hard Drive USB 3.0 / 2 x Firewire800 Model LAC301983 Orange

Pros: Great design idea, capacity, USB 3.0 and firewire.

Cons: Price

Other Thoughts: Drive died after 3 days. It was extremely frustrating because I had loaded 6 hours worth of work onto the drive. Come Friday and I need access the files and the drive would not show up in "Computer." I plugged it into my mac and still nothing. I could hear the disk spin but nothing would happen.

The data on the disk were crucial so I had to figure out a way to access the data. I thought to myself "what if the controller just went bad but the disk is still good," well what do you know? I took the risk, cracked open the case (voided my warranty obviously), plugged into my desktop and bam! My drive was working and my files were retrived. Now I have the enclosure laying around in pieces but atleast i got my data back. At the end, it was indeed the controller that went bad and not the drive.

I am out 140 bucks...
