    I heard the LaCie drives are kinda crappy. I was looking to buy a 500GB drive but after reading a lot of reviews, I moved on.

    Anyone ever had a La Cie drive of any kind and if so any thoughts?

    really?

    I always kinda got the impression that they were rather nice, but then again, I didn't do any research into them either....I would like to know what other people have to say about their stuff....

    The RAID0 kills the idea IMHO. Christ loosing a terabyte of data in one failure, ugh.

    what would you rather go for. Raid 1+0 with 6 250GB drives. If that thing isn't heavy enough with 4 drives in it already :-P

    Ewww, jpg at 4.6mb? Man, why not use a compression-less format like bmp or png (for photoshop)?

    At the bottom of the page in the specs: "* 1 terabyte = 1,000,000,000,000 bytes. Once formatted, the actual available storage capacity varies depending on operating environment."

    I wonder how much really is lost upon format. I lost 17GB upon formatting my 250GB drive (233GB useable).

    Notwithstanding that 1 terabyte is actually 1,099,511,627,776 bytes. Slight difference.

    Actually, with a theoretical 90GB "buffer zone", you'd think that would be enough space to format it and still come in at their 1,000,000,000,000 mark. I doubt it, though.

    For the longest time I wondered about the whole discrepency with the sizes of hard drives, and recently I found out where it comes from.

    Now I've read it... and I am not too sure what kind of "confusion" was going on that they decided to change the system. I think it has more to do with marketing if anything, makes the numbers "rounder" and what not.
