None of these companies make hard-drives.
The only ones who make the hard drives themselves are Western-Digital, Seagate and Toshiba.
Lacie & G-Tech just make enclosures.
That said I have around 12 LaCie D2's, 2 Lacie 2.5 Porsche drives and 2 Lacie 3.5 Porsche drives.
None of them ever failed...EVER.
I shoot film, read literature, am a coffee/design/architecture/watch and clothing snob.
Amsterdam is my home & Avoriaz is my resort.
