Lets start with a typical pro and cons:
PROS: As you can image 1TB is huge! It can store tons of information and it's great for backing up huge volumns of work. The look great and they look beefy for a reason, because they are a power machine!
Lacie comes with a 3 year warranty which is great and gives you someone to go to if you have any problems, of which I've only had a few (and I buy ALOT of these!)
They stand the test of time, Lacie is a really great brand which is why the price tag is so high!
You can choose to attach a stand if you choose to do so . I have before but I also find that these can stand on their side pretty easy so I tend not to.
Theres lods of leads that you can use plus a UK plug and EU one!!
So easy to plug in and use!
CONS: Expensive, they are lots of money but it's the price you pay to have your work on a backup! Another majour CON is the fact that if you drop one of these on the floor, then bye bye data - everything will be lost. Regardless if this is on carpet, stone, marble, maybe even sofa. If you drop this, thats game over.
It's a great machine to use a home and it's not very portable which is a downside. If you want to move your hardrive all the time then this is not your option. Great for backing up in a central location
