Pros great write & read speed, good looking, user friendly, large capacity
Cons nothing to complain about
Summary LaCie has been my favorite hard drive supplier for a while now, and I never expected to find myself needing a unit with 10TB of space. But when my photo restoration business took off I found I needed a reliable RAID system that wouldn't leave me waiting or wanting for many years to come. After looking around at what's available, I decided to buy this unit, and haven't looked back since. I'm really happy with its performance.

Pros easy to use, lots of storage space, tough aluminum casing, good performance
Cons haven't had any issues
Summary I needed an office backup solution for my business, and really like the idea of daily backups on separate drives. The 5big has 5 hot swappable drive bays, and so it's perfect for that purpose. Setting it up was simple, and it works very quietly backing up as required. This is a really nice looking product too.

Summary Finding the right storage solution is sometimes a challenge, and I researched long and hard before finally ordering this unit. I certainly haven't been disappointed. This thing works great. It is cool, quiet, and very fast. The construction quality is good.
Pros 100% aluminum sturdy body, simple to use, quiet, fast, solidly constructed, roomy
Cons a bit heavy
Summary This drive has completely changed my entire workflow. The sheer speed of Thunderbolt is phenomenal, it lets me stream media directly from the unit. And the 10 TB is a good volume of space, both for storing current projects for development and my backups. Good quality hardware, too, I like the ease of identifying disks and hot swappability function. Very nice professional piece of kit.
Pros Reliable, solid, fast
Cons No comments
Summary I've only used this unit for a few weeks, so I can't really assess its long-term reliability, but judging from the quality of hardware and my past experience with other LaCie drives, it seems like this thing is built to last. It's fast, quiet and is fairly easy to setup and use, which helps a ton! I completely recommend it.
