I just ordered a 2nd LaCie Quadra to use alongside my 1 TB 2Big quadra. These are excellent drives! I have purchased a Western Digital External Drive and while it works ok, it is a cheap piece of crap especially on the mini USB connector which falls out. I have had my first 2Big Quadra for 4 years with NO difficulty.
These drives are built like a tank and this model is a great value. Should you have to replace one or both drives, how easy can it get! Try that with a Western Digital or a Maxtor.
I found that after having so much trouble with other hard drives, I keep coming back to these Quadra drives. They are quiet, dependable and easy to use. I have found that after months of using them, I haven't had any problems with these. I use them specifically for Backup drives only, FYI. But are GREAT. and not expensive for the 4TB size. Great job LaCie.
I actually have the previous version of this product (pre usb 3) and recently one of the drives failed. I called LaCie tech support expecting the worse but they spoke english natively (!) and were excellent. I replaced the bad drive and just like their manual says the good drive copied itself over (it did take about 5 hours and you have to insert the new drive with the unit running to get the copying to start).
Now I am copasetic !
A Raid drive in safe (mirror) mode is absolutely a requirement, if you value your files and I highly recommend LaCie!
