I love this thunderbolt/usb 3 drive..

LaCie uses Seagate and other reputable drive companies for the actual hard drives, and manufactures (or buys) the casing.

LaCie's 3TB Thunderbolt/USB3 drive has very easy and clear setup utilities. I plugged it into a new iMac, using the included Thunderbolt cable, and the setup utility came up right away. They offer options to partition with shared Windows and Mac formatting, or all Windows, or all Mac. I decided to have 250 GB with Windows format and 2750 GB with Mac format -- since I sometimes run Windows 8 using VMWare and it will be handy to access the Windows partition to share more files between Mac and Windows. The big Mac partition is used as an alternate drive for Time Machine backups, saving multiple virtual hard drives for running different OSs in VMWare, manual backups for Lightroom, and a scratch drive for Photoshop.

The setup utility also offers an option to install (1) LaCie's backup utility, (2) a utility that enables you to access encrypted drive content from anywhere on the Internet, and (3) an encryption utility. The utilities are also available if you use a Windows machine. All of the utilities and the drive itself have good documentation in multiple languages, with the option to access up-to-date documentation from LaCie's site on the web. I decided to skip the backup utility, since Time Machine does a good job for what I need, and OS X 10.8 allows Time Machine to use two drives and alternate backups.

Size Name: 4 TB
I have a long history with LaCie products, have probably purchased 25+ LaCie hard drives, needed for video storage and production. Do not buy this product! Just got mine. After loading up a series of video files it now clicks when it starts. In hard drive parlance--it's a time bomb. I've got to get the files off fast and send the HD back. Here's the backstory:

I used to buy LaCie hard drives only. As mentioned I had many and would daisy chain them. LaCie uses Seagate and other reputable drive companies for the actual hard drives, and manufactures (or buys) the casing. Over the years I can honestly say that EVERY SINGLE LaCie drive has failed. The raw hard drivers were not the issue. The problem was in the connections between casing and the drives. I know this because I pulled the drives, uses a drive reader and the drives worked. The problem is La Cie's--in the casing connection to the drive.

At a certain point, I switched to buying hard drives from OWC. I now have 21 1-3 TB firewire drives in a row. Never has one failed. Six months ago I was looking for Thunderbolt drives--it has been 3 years since I'd purchased a LaCie drive---and figured LaCie might have improved on the problems it was having. I bought a 6 TB Thunderbolt RAID. I back up everything to other drives, but I (yep, here it comes) didn't because I had monster projects with monster video requirements and was too cheap to split the drive into duplicating 3TB drives. Mistake! The drive died the other day. LaCie's tech people weren't helpful in the least. They didn't back up the integrity of their product. Instead, they blamed me for not backing up their drive!

Finally, back to the 4TB drive.

I already have 3 of these which I daisy chain. With Mac you can mirror drives as well as stack them virtually to a single drive. The beauty of Thunderbolt is that you can daisy chain the monitor and the drives together, but you should put the drives first and the screen last. The la cie always had two thunderbolts. Now suddenly there is only one. This really should be highlighted because it makes it useless if you want to do backups. Otherwise i have had no issues with the drives but this is a showstopper.

I purchased this drive from my local mac store and I am very pleased. The drive transfer times are extremely fast with the thunderbolt cable. It is great too that the drive actually comes with a usb 3.0 cable and thunderbolt cable, so theres no need to purchase one. The only thing I don't particularly like about the drive is that it can be noisy from time to time and it also only has one thunderbolt port, so unfortunately you can't daisy chain drives. This is not a big deal for me but for some people it may be. Other than that its great.

So far this drive is everything the manufacturer claims it to be - fast, reliable, and quiet in everyday operation. Blue light that others complain about is no problem for me (maybe would be if I had it in my bedroom - might keep me awake at night).

I work on video productions and copied some large files on to the drive. The next day it would not turn on. I am very disappointed and do not recommend this item.

Very noisy during normal operation. Intermittent rattle that went away when tapped. Not a good sign. Lacie said it needed repair, and they would do that after I returned it at my expense. I could expedite things for $30 dollars. Not at all what I'd expect from a fresh-out-of-the package product OR from the manufacturer. I'm returning the unit to Amazon for a refund.

I have used LaCie hard drives for years. This hard drive is very fast and reliable. No problems whatsoever with any of the LaCie external HDs. I have daisy chained this drive with one other LaCie HD and they work perfectly. Never turn off the HDs as I simply unplug the cables to my MacBook Pro as I don't need access to the HDs on a regular basis. Use the HDs for external backup only. I really like how seamlessly the HDs installed and work my Mac.

Puzzled to read those who have had such bad luck with their LaCie HDs. I must say that has not been my experience.
