big disk sucks,
This review is from: LaCie 500GB Big Disk Extreme with Triple Interface External Hard Drive ( 300794U ) (Personal Computers)
I have 2 big disks. They have each been replaced twice in the past 8 months. They both just failed again. I am certainly not trusting anymore data with these unreliable things. Possibly they are failing because they get so hot.
I own a couple of maxtors that have been up and running without hassles for 2 years.
