LOST 4TB of Data; don't buy this!!
What a HUGE waste of money; 2 years old, the thunderbolt connector became so HOT it could not be touched and could have caused a fire.. These drives got good reviews, and i paid TOP DOLLAR for what i thought would be a quality hard drive..
NEVER AGAIN.. i'm only buying APPLE hard drives from now on. Apple makes the most reliable, BEST performing, EASY troublefree and longest lasting hard drives you can buy, and they are worth EVERY PENNY (you get what you pay for..). If you want 10 years out of a hard drive spend the extra for the QUALITY of Apple.. don't make the same EXPENSIVE mistake that i did..
As near as i can tell, LaCie has a nice little scam going where they sell you EXPENSIVE junk that will die in a year or two so that they can charge you to save your valuable data.. IT's A SCAM as far as i'm concerned.
