There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I didn't conduct and speed tests but I didn't notice much difference for what I'm using it for between internal drive and this drive.
2-3x the price of a USB 3.0 but for me eliminating the frustration and wasted time fiddling with velcro tapes to make the USB 3.0 connector connect it was worth it.
I connected via Thunderbolt, went to the SETUP file and it gave me the choice of Window-Mac share or just Mac. It also gave me the choice of single or partition. I selected the partition and set up 2/3rds for Win-Mac Sharing (FAT32) and a third for Mac only. After formatting (easy, easy, only seconds) a screen popped up offering to backup to Time Machine. I said yes and it started backup to the Mac only partition. (I should have known that is what it would do!)
At that point I realized that between my 3 Mac computers, I may need more than 500GB for backups and I likely would not need the 1400GB for the Shared files (my husband is Windows and I am the one managing all our house records). Files don't take up as much space as backups. But I could not stop the back up and going back into the SETUP file only said "DONE"- it gave me no option to re-partition it differently.
So while I type this, I am letting it finish the back up to Time Machine and will then try using Disk Utility later today. I should be able to erase/restore and then repartition it with more space dedicated to my Mac computer back ups. I also use iDrive (online) so its not that big a deal- I am not too worried about losing files, just the speed/convenience of accessing them locally.
I plan to have the FAT32 partition available as a file share option over our LAN. I would leave it connected to my Mac Mini which would act as a server and the files that I work with on other computers would actually accessible from the LaCie while it is connected to the MM. Or I could disconnect and use it as a safeguard option by not keeping it online- I would just connect it periodically to sync files and have the MM be the accessible drive for the other home computers. Haven't quite decided yet. There is something reassuring to know that potential hackers could not hold our files hostage.
I probably should give this a 5 star as my other 2 LaCie Rugged Drives are still going strong- one at 12 years and one at 7 years. Its just that I turned the 750 GB one over to hubby for his Windows and the other older model has even less GB and I needed TB storage. Hoping this product lasts a long time like my others.
I did have another LaCie product, a real external dedicated hard drive but our frequent brownouts/blackouts knocked out the drive despite it being on a surge protector. LaCie wanted $1400 to recover the disk (I declined). They said it was likely due to the stress of the drive spinning on/off so much when the power was turning on/off repeatedly. Gee, was I glad I had multiple backups!

Initially, the iMac reported the 2TB drive's capacity as around 400GB. I believe an earlier reviewer returned a drive as faulty because of this. Even a reformat to APFS left it still showing 400GB. Mystery! Solution :- In the Mac Disk Utility when all drives have populated, change the view to 'Show All Devices' instead of the default 'Show Only Volumes'. Select the Device and the full 2TB shows and can then be formatted as a single partition or whatever is required.
Space is an obvious advantage with the drive but speed has also improved.
I've lost 25,000+ photos, documents, time machine back ups so 1 star from me I'm afraid :(
