From what I've read, Porsche were involved with the design (y)

math5871

Porsche design... seriously, was Porsche actually involved in this external drive development? Ok, hands up it’s a nice looking piece of kit but Porsche involvement :/ heat added because I like the look of design and it’s in a sale (highfive)

Used Box a lot and never had any issues with them.

mcfly666

And lets not forget, most sites will only show max fps gained. So for augments sake MEA might only see a 5 fps increase going from 2133 to 3600 but they don't tell you that the .1% rate shoots up 20fps for a 40% increase :)

mcfly666

What extra money? Kingston themselves don't charge extra for 2133 to 2666 - even jumping to 2933 is only 7/8 pounds extra. Besides chances are a faster kit will generally be able to run slower with less latency than a stock 2133 part, and with infinity fabric that helps a lot. (mhz mostly)

Remember to back up your data. The conventional wisdom by tech experts on backups is known as the 3-2-1 method. Basically you want: 3 copies of any data you don't want to lose 2 different mediums it's stored on (so 2 different drives in your computer, for example) 1 copy kept offsite, to prevent against disaster.

Where do you get failure rates of Lacie ranked with brands ?

Bargin.General

Is it.......

musicl

I was consider getting them to shuck (and even seeing if it's possible as there is a clampdown in manufacturers that solder the drives up differently) for a NAS but reading into it, it looks like the drives inside are Seagate ST8000AS000 https://www.storagereview.com/seagate_archive_hdd_review_8tb which are not recommended. It's an old end of life drive. More info https://www.lacie.com/www-content/datasheets/pdfs/porsche-design-desktopDS1865-4-1802US-en_GB.pdf Still, great price for an external if you need to backup files.

Rich44

I got a Netgear 8 port with lifetime warranty (ones with metal cases had lifetime warranties) for a fraction more than this. For me 5 ports just isn't worth it you'll lose one for uplink immediately. Worth it for lobbing under the TV to hard wire console, sky etc I guess but I'd spend a little more & get an 8 port if you think you'll get more devices, if not its a good deal. Quoting full duplex speeds is a bit cheeky too but they're not the only ones who do that.

I am not into gaming - just multimedia and genreal needs.

CoeK

So no SSD?

BigProfit4u

I already have a Seagate hybrid 1 TB drive with a Windows 8.1 OS on and I was also running an older 1TB SATA3 with another Windows 8.1 partition on which has started to wear out after 5 years use. I am planning on replacing the older one with this new Firecuda which should be quicker and quieter. :p

Izu

The price isn't bad for what it is, but SSHDs are inviting another point of failure into an important storage device for a pretty minor performance bump; a 120GB SSD + 1TB HDD doesn't come to much more than them rolled into one and the pure SSD is going to run a lot quicker. Though if you want to use this in a PS4 or whatever it's probably a decent enough bet.

CoeK

I assume you are using it as a storage drive and not as the main drive?

If you value your data then you need to back up to 2 drives. The easiest to use will be a NAS unit like the WD my book duo which has 2 NAS (server) drives inside and can be configured easily to act as a 2 drive mirrored array to backup automatically - or you can just get two reliable hard drives used by servers solutions providers, like 2 HGST or toshiba drives and keep one to back up your data (if you want cheaper options then use server drives like WD reds, but any server drives would do. They cost more by you gain massively in reliability. The consumer Seagate and WD drives have high failure rates high enough to make them unsafe to use for irreplaceable data like photos. Most of my failed drives have got blown capacitors. That is what you get from cheap home consumer drives - cheap components which will fail and you have no cheap means of getting your data back. Once they go you are stuffed and no amount of trickery will help you.

deepu25

Any good recommendation please...thanks

bbfb123

It comes across as a good all rounder.

fiqqer

No it is not any good. If you want this for backup get something more reliable. This is a home user device with their most basic hard drive inside. Its fine if you don't mind losing whatever you have on it.

I have an older one and of the 5 mechanical disks connected to my main PC it is the only one with smart errors; still working but I use it only for an extra backup because of the errors. I would recommend a different brand, even though it does look brilliant.

Lowtrawler

The LaCie Porsche design box has been around for about 10 years and actually looks quite good for a box. Unfortunately, it's not very good at its job as over heating is a major issue and results in hard drive failures.

Likely to be a SHR (Shingled Head Recording) Seagate hard drive inside, doubt it is PMR. Larger 6TB was £119.99 last week, as an indication of price.

We support the 1TB versions and above for a customer in France. Very high failure rate on these.. Guess these ARE great for the industry though.. more failures mean more work or sales.. (y)

WiteWulf

Avoid LaCie gear at all costs. They look great and often offer good features, but they’re let down by terrible PSUs. Cheap design means the capacitors dry out in them and they die long before the HDD. The PSUs are also sealed units, so pretty much impossible to repair 👎🏻

Buyer beware - Dangerously slow processor, will most likely lock-up on anything more than single page web browsing.

I really couldn’t in good conscience recommend this computer purely on the processor alone. I think I’d need to be paid to use this nevertheless actually buy it. Sorry to seem cruel (fierce)

Gormond

Be aware that the processor in the PC is very slow. Much slower than a Core i3 or Ryzen 3.

Back the F:\ up to begin with :D But seriously, pickup an external drive and make copies of your data no matter what. External drive will be useful for regular backups of your new computer when you eventually buy it. Good luck!!!

philmitchell

I would take the hard drive out , then stick it in a docking station . then just hook it up to your new computer . you can then put all that stuff on your new computer or just leave it on that drive . but 12 years worth of stuff you should have it backed up anyway .

My moneys on a cheap PSU taking out the motherboards.

ws007

It wouldn't be if it's out of warranty and the PSU blows and takes out the motherboard CPU and Gfx card :/

Lowtrawler

My guess is that the PSU fried the motherboards. The cheap PSU in these are very unlikely to give consistent currents and voltages. Decent motherboards will cope with some variation but the cheap motherboards in these will just give in. Ultimately, it's the PSU which is most likely to cause problems.

pimpMe

You don't need to spend that sort of cash, unless you want to of course, for an office machine you could do worse than buy from: https://itzoo.co.uk/collections/pc-base-units I bought an i-5 3470s from them several months ago and its been switched on 24/7 and used to stream to Twitch. Been flawless so far and only cost £160 with an SSD and 8gb memory. Monitors are 10 a penny, £100 gets you a 24' that will suit an office environment..

pimpMe

Hardly, what would be the chances of 2 motherboards failing in two seperate computers both within 24hrs? Don't forget the hassle of time off to accept deliveries and trips to post office to send back the defective PC's. Bad experience, yes. Bad luck, stretching it a bit there....[as luck has f**k all to do with it, either poor workmanship or bad quality components, nothing unlucky about it].
