I have more than 60 portable hard drives. 45 of these drives are fire wire, the other 5 were given to me. There is only one great portable drive, and it is this drive -
I know this is a bold statement, but I see people giving other portable drives props on the internet and they just don’t compare to this LaCie
When choosing a portable drive, you don’t want a FAN. A fan on a portable drive is a bad sign. It means that the drive is going to crash sooner rather than later. The drive will stop working and the drive will die. I have never had a LaCie portable fail on me and I have taken these drives to 60+ countries including the harshest places on the planet
Unfortunately the APPLE store sells some the industries worst 1TB portable drives. You will need to order this drive from B&H.
If you are doing work that is valuable to you then use this drive - LACIE 1TB
