Now, now, lets behave.

I suspect he was trying to be helpful to those who might not have seen that comment/ deal.

"Well done, Neil! You've designed a box with a blinky light that looks like very other piece of electronics!"

Well, it's better than his previous attempt, which is the ugliest drive I own.:p

Would be interested to know whether Lacie is more reliable than WD

The last lacie one i had was the previous 500gb model without the blue bling and that was a samsung. No guarantee this one will be though as i think they just go for the cheapest at the time?

Lacie don't make hard drives WD do, it's possible the HD may be western digital and just the sata PCB thing you have to worry about which is more than likely generic.

Yeah, it really is a lucky dip to what you get, it can even be possible to have 2 different hard drives in 2 of these if one is in a later production cycle with cheaper resourced components.
#17
I've always liked this drive nice straight edges, shiney etc. Although there's a lot of varied reviews on amazon for it.
#18
LaCie? This have anything to do with Final Fantasy XIII? =P

Looking at this picture from his website he's designed various different black boxes with blue lights on the front.

There's no end to his tallent for shiney black boxes with blue lights on the front.

I was going to buy this after seeing some good reviews a while ago when I was hunting for a 1Tb .. but there was no stock when I needed it (£66 at the time) ... so I opted for the WD Elements.

You can't really go wrong with either of them I reckon.
#22
according to the comments I read its an Hitachi, Unless you are going for a premium model then some of them will fail or are more likely to suffer the average failure rate. Its quite possible to buy a beyyer quality drive and the casong separately.
#23
I've had this drive for about 3 months, no problems at all for me.
#24
i just brought this Hraddrive enclosure for £16 with my 1.5TB WD HD
#25
A two year warranty doesn't suggest a lot of confidence in the product, does it? Even Lidl usually give three years.
#26
I have had three of these running near enough 10+ hours a day for around a year, and none have failed or caused any problems. They run fast and quiet, and all three have the same Hitachi drives inside.

I have had several drives over the years, and the most confidence inspiring has been Hitachi, I have had a WD fail, and a Seagate fail. But that doesn't imply they are bad drives, just the luck of the draw I guess.

As for a 2 year warranty, that's enough IMHO, other electronics usually come with 1 year, and most other external drives come with 2 also, i.e. the WD 1TB drive. I would rather buy a branded product that an aldi's /lidl's own, but that's just my choice.....

can these be formated ntfs

you joost hit on my experience of externals regarding the WD and Seagate. The WD(500G) is still sitting gathering dust so is it even more my time to pull the drive out and stick it in the tower??

yup

I paid about the same amount for a 250GB Lacie hard drive 3 years ago...On the plus it is shaped as a blue Lego block. Still going strong.
#31
I've got one of these LaCie external usb boxes (just bought the enclosure) it works good enough but my only complaint is the ridiculous way you open the case, its two little plastic flaps you pull apart like a resealable bag of coffee....what a crazy flimsy useless thing to put on a piece of computer equipment :?
#32
after reading the 1star reviews on amazon, I think people better be prepared for the worst case scenario if you buy this.

i don't think a few bad reviews make a product bad.... I have 3, still running, with no problems.
