LaCie 500GB Rikiki Portable External Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model 301949 Black
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: At the time of purchase, was very affordable.

Nice looking case, sturdy feeling.

Cons: The cable that was given with the unit did not fit very well in the LaCie connection. After a little over a year of use (which was well under used, once or twice a month at most), the USB3.0 connection in the LaCie snapped off its board.

I was thinking that it would be a simple case of unscrewing a few screws to get my data, but it was not that simple.

The screws that are used for this system are allen wrench security bits. This made things extremely difficult. I work at a college IT dept, and they didn't even have what I needed. I ended up drilling the top portion of the security bits off to release the good ol' 500gb Samsung hard drive.

All in all, either it was a lemon connector, or this is a horrible long term product. Please don't buy. I would have given this one star, but it worked fairly well for a year, and the hard drive inside was a great buy at the time.
