Hard drive was on my desk for two years. Only plugged it in to back up maybe once a week. After two years, it started making noises. Customer service is horrible at Lacie. Sales dept is good, Once its out of warranty tech dept won't talk to you without giving your credit card number Crash.........

        Comments about LaCie 500GB Rugged External Hard Drive:

        I have only good things to say about this drive. Having an additional 500GB with me allows me to keep my photo library with me and edit video wherever I am. It is fast, with the Firewire 800 support, and I can't even here it running. The orange bumper seems to protect it well, though I have yet to drop it.
        Using a portable drive is a new thing for me, but with the price per GB being so low, this drive is hard to pass up.
