3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings 25 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase
Bought to use with Time Machine. Easy set up in that mode. Ran well for around a month and then inexplicably began to show "failed backup" errors, a few days after Amazons 30 day returns had expired! Went to support FAQ's which were of very little help. Advised for this sort of error to reformat disk " in a particular" manner which included a reformat plus a secure delete of the disk which as a 4tb disk customer is warned will take over a day etc. In meantime of course you need another disk to save your backups on........didn't do this, I sent a support request to La Cie which was answered promptly. Advised to......reformat disk in a particular manner etc. Whilst all this going on, the disk started to behave itself again. So wrote courteous response to La Cie, explaining this and saying this didn't give me much confidence in the product and asking what may have caused it. Response described everything that can cause a disk to fail, except that there is a problem with the product. It largely seems to refer to Windows issues even though I had stated clearly the use of Time Machine and OSX 10.9.1. Heavy, bulky design and noisier than smaller drives from Seagate, especially when starting up. So not sure, at the minute.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice product! 19 Nov 2013
By Andreas
Very good hard disk, nice speed, beautiful design, certainly a very good choice if you need a hard disk with lots of space. The space is exactly 3.63TB if anyone has that question. Very affordable price too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value and works well. 8 July 2014
Verified Purchase
Attractive appearance, smaller than I expected and very quiet in use. I use it mainly to clone my Mac, and my only criticism of the drive is that it is a little slow when used as the boot drive although it does the job perfectly. I suppose if I want speed I should buy a Thunderbolt drive, but this is fine for the moment.
