It does make its presence known with a blue light that could light up a small room reasonably well, and that isn't something I need or want. It also keeps reminding you of its presence with knocks that, at times, scare the dog. I have mitigated both of these with a 6 ft TB cable allowing me to store it in a ventilated cabinet under my desk.
* The case is solidly built and feels like it could survive an earthquake and/or grizzly bear attack. (Not tested.)
* The individual drives are extremely easy to access and replace with nothing more than a small coin.
* If you only want RAID 0 for speed/performance, it's ready to go right out of the box. RAID 1 and JBOD are also fairly easy to setup if you're familiar with OSX Disk Utility. RAID 1 setup took me about 5 minutes.
* Although the SATA bus limits the top speed compared to the max. throughput of the Thunderbolt interface, it's still plenty fast. I use the drive for projects in Aperture, Logic Pro, and streaming music and video from iTunes without any noticeable slowdown. (It might be too slow for editing HD video -- haven't tried this yet.)
* This drive is loud, even without the built-in fan running. I can't have this drive powered up while recording music in my home studio, as you can clearly hear it whirring away through my instrument mics.
* When the drives heat up and the case fan kicks in, it's even noisier. I think mine shipped with a slightly defective fan, because at high RPMs it starts to make a buzzing noise that you can hear from the next room. Expecting a fan failure any day now.
* The drive is HUGE. It stands about the same height as a 13" Macbook Pro with the screen open and takes up a footprint on my desk about the size of a child's lunchbox. Considering it only houses 2x 3.5" SATA drives, the circuit board, and a 50x50x15mm cooling fan, the case seems larger than necessary.
* I bought this drive specifically because all of the online specs said it had hot-swappable, user-serviceable drives. I had planned to buy a third 3.5" SATA drive to use as an off-site backup, but the manual specifically says not to swap out drives in RAID 1 unless one of the drives has failed. It would have been nice to know this before buying...
* The giant, obnoxious blue light ruins an otherwise elegant design and is extremely annoying, especially if your workspace is dimly lit.
To start with - the positive - it's beautiful and it's faster than blazes I'd give it 5 stars based on those criteria - but.....
Three issues that made me send it back for refund
1. Power up - there is a huge bright glowing blue power button on the front. Unfortunately that button does not have dominant control. The drive will power up when my Mac is brought out of sleep. A serious design flaw imho - if you are going to have a power button - it should have control, not the computer it's attached to. I back up once every day or two, not every time I wake up my Mac.
2. Noise - really too much for a desktop drive - aggravated by the fact it turns on when I don't want it to
3. Unmounting and Power off - First I noticed that when I unmounted the drive properly and turned it off, it gave this long beep. Not a happy `bye, I'm turning off now' beep but an alarming `I'm really not happy and you've done something wrong' beep. I logged a ticket with LaCie and they responded - this is normal. Then I noticed sometimes on power off it would not beep at all. I logged another ticket - the response `this is also normal but if you are worried about it, please send it in at your expense and we'll take 12 days to tell you if it's ok or not'. Not exactly confidence inspiring.
To LaCie's credit - they did give me a full refund
This unit has 2 separate 2 TB drives which appear as a single 4 TB drive on the desktop. The user can alter the configuration to RAID 1 to make it a 2 TB drive with backup but will lose speed and capacity. Linking up multiple units continues to increase overall read/write speeds. It is at least 3x faster than a Firewire 800 drive.
The unit is quiet but large. It has 2 Thunderbolt ports - but no others. I think LaCie now provides a cable with the drive, and the cost has come down some.
If you are working with lots of multi-GB video files, this drive is just wonderful to have, and 2 or 3 would be fantastic. For less storage or smaller files, a 120-240 GB SSD is the way to go and would be twice as fast as a single LaCie unit.
If buying a new Mac, I think the hybrid drive Apple is offering is the best option as a built in, and then if massive additional storage needed, these LaCie drives can be added.
Doing a warranty return with LaCie as the power issue has become unworkable. Haven't received the replacement yet but they've been very responsive and have good advance replacement options, so I'm upping my review a star. Maybe they're better than I thought!
Got the cross shipped drive and everything's working well again. One note: Lacie says that your warranty is void if you put new drives in the trays, but if you do an advance replacement, you can just plop the drives and trays from the replacement unit into the old non-functioning unit and avoid the problem all together.
Bought this for video editing and photo storage. The drive is fast, as is any Thunderbolt drive. I use mine with each disk independent instead of as part of a RAID array as it's fast enough for my needs and gives me easier backups.
Mine has major issues with the power connector--it's really touchy and will randomly power down the whole unit. Not a good thing. It'd be even worse if I had it setup as an array.
Maybe I have low standards or something but the noise doesn't bother me.
LaCie claims that using alternate drives in their trays voids the warranty. I decided just to do it anyway and haven't had any issues, but it's an annoying limitation. If you want to get a replacement drive from LaCie it's something like an $80 premium over the bare drive. No thanks.
Generally, I think of LaCie's hardware as a small step above garbage with pretty industrial design. It seems like they've collectively conned the entire video and design industries into thinking their stuff is better than more mainstream alternatives when it's probably on par if not worse than the bigger guys. I wish there had been a better option available when I bought it.
