Any experience?? The product and the packaging seems nice, I'm looking at the 1TB Bigger disk extreme. Right now it's the only 1TB external disk in one casing. Yes I know I am probably better off with a file server with four 250GB disks or something, but what I really2 need is 1TB, one casing, no hassle, firewire connection.

Anybody care to share their LaCie experiences?

i'm using a D2 extreme 250gb, couldn't be more pleased with it. I was considering this or a maxtor, but but after reading the reviews-i went for the lacie, appa arently it's much more stable than maxtor. I've only had it for a month or so and i can't really comment on its reliabilty yet, but let's just say-i've been extremely satisfied with it.

Plus it helps with the fact that i'm using the hard drive in a Mac+windows envoirnment.

I've been reading threads at Rob Galbraith's forums, and on the APA mailing list, and it seems everyone's conclusion is LaCie: pretty casing with cheap disks inside. I'm really quite convinced I should stay away from them. But no one else makes 1TB disks in single enclosure.

The wiebetech enclosure that can house several 3.5" disks in one casing costs U$1500 just for the casing!
