Customer Reviews
Tough, efficient and unassuming. (The product, that is),
I'm going to buy another one. 'Nuff said ?

La Cie hard drive,
This is a useful hard drive to take around on travels. It,s small and robust and excellent for an interim backup of data. The price is also very reasonable.

Just ideal for the job in hand,
I purchased the hard drive, intending to store many photo's. I have found the drive is perfect and as a result I can use the photographs stored on several units. Ample space.
