Spherical so it may more easily roll off one’s desktop and fall to the floor…?

Judging by Typical Lacie external drive buyers it’ll likely happen a lot.

Don’t think I have anything specific against Lacie… at least nothing I don’t hold against any other external drive marketer that does not actually manufacture
the hard drives they mount in their enclosures…

I just find that the typical user who buys this brand tends to be affluent more
than tech-savvy.

I’ve had several “not quite arguments” with customers about the fact that Lacie is not (and never has been) a manufacturer of drives.

Frankly for what this eye candy will likely sell for it should probably have an SSD inside it (Which Lacie doesn’t manufacture either)

Hmmm? $400.00 for a silver plated tin ball and $90.00 for a hard drive.
The iDiots will buy them by the gross.

Folks are looking into it. :slight_smile:

There must be enough number of consumers who prefer this to 1TB SSD at a similar cost.

Looking at the error and the line involved, I have no clue how that could happen. Maybe it’s a one time things. (And this post is a test :wink: )

Personally, if someone DID “hack the system” to post THAT remark with my name I’d sign my name to it… elegantly stated.

And I agree about typical Lacie buyers
