Style Name: 7200RPM - QuadraSize: 4TB Verified Purchase
I found this external HD to be of the utmost quality build (the case at least--not sure what actual hard-drive is running inside). One word of caution though, don't get trigger happy and decide to format the drive as I did. This is a GPT drive, and such it cannot be formatted in the normal (default) manner. Make sure to use the included utility to format the drive in order to take full advantage of the 4 TB of storage.

After I realized what I had did (and getting only 2TB of the drive), I tried to go to the manufacturer's website to try and download the software that had come on the drive in order to initialize correctly. However, I couldn't find the software anywhere. I had to turn to an open source program called "EaseUS partition Master" in order to get the drive formatted to the full 4TB.

I can't speak about the "sanctioned" method of formatting the drive with the included drivers (since I zapped those), but be aware if you do initialize to a single GPT partition of 4TB, older OSs won't be able to see it, including Windows XP (with the exception of the 64-bit version).

Other than that one issue (which was of my own making), everything is going well. I've been able to consolidate files I had scattered about, due to storage limitations. Even so, I'm filling up the 4 TB fast! :O This is especially amazing when I consider how much less of storage I lived with in the past.

I ran out of space with my 1TB LaCie hard drive so I purchased the 4TB drive. LaCie drives are extremely quiet and efficient. It offers a variety of ways to hook into your computer. If you have usb 3 on your computer the available speeds are very fast. Basic start up could not be easier, just plug & voila you are on your way. I am not too impressed with the backup software that came with the drive. I am not sure about customer support because I've never had to use their service. I would recommend this drive if style, data storage, and speed are important ingredients in your selection process.

I have a number of LaCie products and they just seem to work better. I am a Mac user and a photographer. I have been disappointed in other products that cost me lost data. I have to have reliable storage and think I have it with LaCie.

Very sad that this drive failed after 3 weeks. I own several older d2 models and have had no problems. I was not able to return the drive because I waited past 30 days to contact Amazon, so stuck dealing with LaCie customer support. They have offered no explanation about why the drive failed, or answered questions about what class of drives they are using these days in the premium-priced d2 Quadra enclosure. I am unable to verify whether drive quality has declined over time, but it might be worth some research online before committing to this model.

As with any drive, do not put your faith in this one as your only copy of valuable data - even a very expensive drive can fail w/o warning.

I am unhappy that the drive failed so soon, and that I am stuck with less-than-first-class service. I can swap the drive if I pay a fee, or send mine back and wait for it to be returned. I would expect more for a device that was obviously defective from the start.

I should have listened to the many negative reviews regarding LaCie products. Within 6 months of buying this product, the drive failed and LaCie wants to charge me $400 to recover the data. The tech I talked to couldn't be more arrogant and unhelpful. Classic computer nerd who has no business savvy. Stay away from this company. There are many more reliable external drives out there.

I will never by an external HD from LaCie again! I bought it in august/2012. I used it once and now, january/2013, I tryed to use it again, and my PC does not recognize it. I plug the usb cable and it`s like nothing is on. I sent an e-mail to LaCie, because I have a 3 years warranty, and they didn`t even responded.Don`t make the same mistake I did. Get another brand. S., Leonardo.

Using this with my DirecTV DVR. My previous DVR was always filling up with shows I wanted to watch but just did not have the time so I had to delete shows on a regular basis.

With their newest DVR, I added this hard drive before I began recording any shows. I hooked it up and the DVR recognized it immediately.

I currently have around 100 hours of programming on the DVR and it has only used 5% of the available space.

Now I can save everything until I have some free time.

I had bought some cheap Seagate drives for my Mac, and when they failed (they only last about 2years) I had to spend a lot of time messing with copying and restoring backups. And ome thing most people don't know is that as your drive begins to fail, it starts by just really slowing things down. So I went for about 3 months trying to figure out why my system was running so slow. LaCie drives are excellent quality. They always have been. I had just gotten lazy and picked up the other drives at Costco. Now that I replaced my cheap drives with the LaCie, I know I won't be having these problems. And the LaCie drives have a super-fast interface.
