Same here but fortunately when removed the drive was fine in a less pretty enclosure. Guessing shoddy USB interface electronics.
What’s the biggest, cheapest usb powered drive?

Lacie is owned by Seagate so it will be one of their Seagate drives. What is probably also true is that the drive is the same found in the Seagate Backup plus, just a different housing. I don't wish to comment on Seagate drives. I wouldn't trust my data on their drives.

The 750gb seagate drive in my desktop is 8 years old, my 250gb seagate backup drive is 10 years old, 1tb backup portable seagate drive 4 years old and 2tb backup potable drive two years old. All still working without a glitch. Never had an issue with seagate personally.
this is now replaced by the USB_C version @ £113

nah Lacie drives fail, I remember seeing one with two drives in Raid 0, over USB2, how can anyone recommend that configuration. Get a WD and stop trying to be so fancy.
LaCie have one of the highest failure rates on the market. It's best to stay away from them.
It's a bit boxy for a Porsche!!

I've never had any issues with any of my Seagate drive's in the past (both portable, desktop, or internal), and I've had various combinations of all such over the year's too.
A hard drive that doesn’t drive like a Porsche. Add to that the fact that it looks like a 6yr old designed it. Maybe they should have collaborated with Pinnifarina instead??
Cool, I'll buy this and can get a Porshe car keyring now without looking like a tool.
I have have heard that these can be kind of unreliable. Nice build quality but I think the drives get a bit too hot in that thick enclosure and there is not enough venting underneath.
it has a Porsche label on it but inside the case is a Fiat Punto.

Unlike all my seagate drives - at least 15 over the years. All died in less than 5 years and some within 2. I also have dead Maxtor, western digital, toshiba and samsung drives.

The only HDD that hasnt yet failed is the HGST and any of my SSDs (toshiba, sandisk, crucial, Liteon)
