I picked up a 2TB LaCie d2 Quadra for $200 inc. tax today. It seems great, very fast with USB 3.0 and a 7200rpm drive. It looks to be on par price-wise with other drives having that capacity. Am I right to think that or did I just get suckered? The porsche design drive that LaCie makes looks good, and is cheaper, but a couple years down the road when I need to replace the drive itself, it doesn't look like you can open it up like you can a d2. I want a desktop drive with the full 3.5" HDD because the drives are cheaper to replace. I am also not a big fan of the plastic enclosures of WD and Seagate, as they seem to get rather hot, adding yet another reason for the disk to fail. Anyone have any long-term experiences with a d2 connected to a MBP? I have a 500Gb lacie rugged that is 2 years old. I bought the Quadra, as I am sure it is only a matter of time before that drive fails and I don't want to lose all of my stuff. LaCie makes a great product from my experience. Hopefully in a few years their thunderbolt/SSDs won't cost so much!
