I bought 2 of the 120 gig solid state drives on May 6th, 2013 ... it's September 15th and one of the drives has stopped reading on both of my computers, yet the other drive, with the same cable, still pops up like everything is normal. This drive, the broken one, lights up as if its getting power, but fails to load into the finder on my computers.

I gave this 2 stars because the drive is fantastic, and fast, and runs cool. But I docked it 3 stars for not working anymore.

It's pretty, but I don't need it to be pretty, I need it to hold files ... which it is currently doing. It's holding them hostage.

**UPDATE: Both drives aren't reading now. Tested 2 different cables. Tested 3 different computers. This is super frustrating.**

It was great while it lasted, about 6 months. It was very fast until it died about a month ago. I was a very heavy user. I used it for software development, hosting virtual machines which is very read/write intensive. SSDs have much shorter lifespans than magnetic disks when written to a lot, but 6 months is crap.

When I bought this drive I was expecting it to be speedy but this drive is the fastest USB 3.0 drive I've ever heard of. It literally transfers my games at 3-400mbps. And for small 4k transfers it's as good as an internal SSD. Because it is an SSD. It's actually the Crucial m4 128GB wrapped up in this beautiful LaCie Porsche package. I was wondering why this thing was so fast and then I found out it has an m4 in it. Being that it's USB 3.0 and not connected to a SATAIII port you do loose about 25% of the performance as far as large files go but like I said, I'm getting 3-400mbps.

I used to have a Super Talent Express RC8, which is one of the fastest, if not THE fasted USB 3.0 thumb drive on the market. And I used to get 150mbps with it transferring games and other stuff. But this LaCie just blows it out of the water. And for the price, you just can't get any better than this.

For those thinking of getting portable storage, don't get anything else. Definitely don't get a HDD unless you absolutely must have 500GB or more. 128GB is plenty. If you need to transfer more data just make 2-3 trips as it's still way fast than an HDD.

They say this drive is for laptops but I use it for my 2 desktops and my laptop. I recommend it 100%. And you can use this for MAC or PC. So go for it. It's the fasted USB 3.0 device ever, and will continue to be until they have USB 4.0.

Sleek, tiny, affordable ... and unreliable. It crashed after two months and I lost my entire music collection. Kudos to Amazon for taking it back outside the return period though.

Size Name: 120 GB Verified Purchase
This USB 3.0 Solid State Drive (SSD) is about 3+ times faster than traditional spinning USB 3.0 drives but it is pricey. It only holds 120 GB compared to a 1 TB spinning drive for about the same price. If you need blazing speed and your computer can handle USB 3.0 you can get almost 400 MB/s read and 300+ MB/s write. It'll move 8 GB (Gigabytes) of data in 20 to 25 seconds (measured) depending on the size of your data elements. Fewer large elements are copied faster than a lot of little ones. It would be great for holding a certain number of large videos and a lot of music. The speed scales so 4 GB takes about 10 sec read, 8 GB takes about 20 read, and so forth.

My only quibble of is the design of the USB 3.0 slot in general; it is not as sturdy and easy to use as the USB 2.0 design. Its easy to crimp the cable end or loosen the slot. This one seems sturdy enough but it is a delicate instrument so it may not be as good as a large capacity USB 3.0 stick if you need to travel with a laptop.

It works on both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 computer connections.

Initially loved the product. SSD by nature is quite quick and a huge step improvement from my old drive. However, I recently plugged the LaCie into my laptop and it didn't power up. I tried replacing the cable, switching laptops, but no luck. Quite a shame since this was the storage for all of my pictures.

Oh well... may be one data point, but I wouldn't take a chance with your data on this drive or brand.

I got my SSD 120GB last week.

LOOKS:
Very impressed with the finish of the product . compliments my mac very nicely. Has a matte brushed aluminium finish.

SPEED:
Moved a 11.25 GB movie in 55 secs on a USB 3.0. As compared to my older USB 2.0 HDD which took 9mins 11 secs.. Thats about 10-11 x faster.
I calculated a speed of ~200 MB/s. This is not as fast as the stated 400 MB/s but I am not complaining.

I bought this to mirror my harddrive, it is simple to hook-up, set-up, and use. I might buy another for my son's computer.
