#1

hi i have had a few lacie drives sadly! i find them a total pile of rubbish! this is the 4th drive that has became un readable i am thinking of sending it back to lacie so they can use it for tests and explain why they are un reliable to the point of useless?
they use seagate drives and i have been told they are very un reliable?

i now use wd drives which seem to be alot better?
i am thinking of buying a nas 2 drive system, can anyone recommend a good make, i was looking at netgear?
thanks

It’s pure luck, i was very lucky so far with Samsung and Western Digital. Every time that i purchase a Seagate drive it end back to Seagate.
Again i will say that it’s pure luck how well your next HDD will work.

3.5 with psu!

Perhaps the PSU is faulty. By chance you can swap it?
Or, if you don’t mind warranty, you might consider pulling the unit apart and try the HDD internally.
