Any experience with the LACIE hd's? Thank you.

HQ Player (#1) & Audrivana (#2) (wow! love the Apple w/music!!) .. these two software make my system "Amazing!", Purist USB- Benchmark DAC2 HGC (love it!), Purist Audio XLR , ATC SCM25A's (To Die For!) & Focal sub6 . Triode Power Cables with Uber Buss (Yes!) Also enjoy Audeze LCD3 w/"fat pipe cardas."

Not the fastest things in the world, but they have been pretty reliable, we've used the big quadra with success, though don't use raid 0 on them as they will fail if you power off and on after a couple times. We've had that happen, but raid 5 is very stable. Even have some backup data sitting on a couple that we check once in a while and verify it's still good.


So all in all I can't say anything really negative about the drives.

I have two Lacie Quadra 2TB I use for my music library and primary backup. I'm thinking of going to a pair of 4TB and I would buy these Lacie again. The performance has been fine and I love the build quality and look.

I used Lacie Rikiki drives for a time, two are still around. One of them used to host my music library until it became too small. I bought them mainly for design and because I thought that preconfigured drives were less expensive. Build quality is good, speed is OK, but could be faster. I'm using them for backups, or as large USB sticks.




I am now back to assembling external drives myself, because you have more control over the hardware.
