LaCie is the BOSE of peripherals. Lots of marketing, looks good on the outside, cheapest possible components on the inside. In 25+ years as an IT manager I've seen about 30% failure rate in LaCie external drives, and it's the power supplies and bridge/controller that fails, not the HD. So won't be touching their TB drives.
But can you accept French cooking?
I'm more than happy with my LaCie monitor - and non, Mademoiselle Fate, I tempt you not!
