The LaCie Starck Desktop Hard Drive represents a collaboration between LaCie and world-renowned designer Philippe Starck, who designed our groundbreaking line of “Toaster” hard drives. This product underscores the importance of developing and creating products that are as functional as they are beautiful. One of the most remarkable features of the LaCie Starck is its intelligent touch-sensitive surface, which responds to your touch. You can fully customize the front panel of the LaCie Starck so that it opens the application of your choosing, depending on whether you use a short tap or a long touch. It’s easy to use and efficient. With its sturdy aluminum casing, the LaCie Starck is one of the most resistant and coolest choices on the market—its exterior provides a sturdy, reliable way to keep it from shock and overheating, making the LaCie Starck completely dependable.

      Comments about LaCie Starck Desktop Hard Drive USB 2.0 1 TB:

      i bought this more than 2 years ago, and when going through old emails today saw that i should have reviewed it a long time ago! it has been chugging along just fine! i use it primarily as backup. when my son is in town, he backs up his drive to it. i don't interact with it often, and it reliably does what it is supposed to.

      Comments about LaCie Starck Desktop Hard Drive USB 2.0 1 TB:

      I use the La Cie to back up my computer's documents. It was easy to plug in and it is compatible with Time Machine. The software that comes with the drive for back up is not that great, so I'm glad Time Machine, which comes standard on all current Macs, works almost automatically with it.

        Comments about LaCie Starck Desktop Hard Drive USB 2.0 1 TB:

        Time Machine, the Backup program that came with my iMac, appears to be working perfectly with the LaCie Starck Desktop Hard Drive USB 2.0 1 TB. Only three weeks have passed since receiving and setting up the LaCie hard drive and my iMac is also new, so I have had no computer crashes, but the LaCie external hard drive is backing up my computer regularly just in case.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Delivery was right on time and the hard drive was in perfect condition.

          This is a great external hard drive for a non-technical person like myself. I plugged it in, followed the prompts and was able to back up my Mac in no time! I'm very pleased with it and would recommend it to someone looking for an external hard drive.

            This HDD matched my needs perfectly. I use it principally as backup to all my music compositions. Since I got it I've discovered how much space 1TB really is as I've backed up both the PC's in the house & still have more than 800GB left!! Wonderfully quiet and very stylish! I'd recommended it !
