    Comments about LaCie Bigger Disk Extreme Hard Drive:

    bought this just over a year ago and it has died. After one year you cannot even pay to have Lacie look at your hard drive. I was told to "throw it in the trash" by their customer support. I have bought BuffaloTech Terastation, Infrant ReadyNAS, Western Digital and Seagate drives and RAID arrays and this is by far the worst. If you want a hard drive that will not last and give just adequate performance during its short life expectancy Lacie is the way to go. I can't think of one single positive thing to say about the hard drive or their customer service. There are other cheap alternatives (some cheaper) that offer better quality. Good luck.
