They've been around for a while. I have an old LaCie firewire external HD that's run like a champ for ages. Like this drive it's got a nice metal case that feels solid still despite a ton of use, so I'd feel good buying another product from them. Hope it works well for you!

I have a usb LaCie drive I've had for a while. You have to wait to turn off the drive manually after turning off the computer as it isn't automatic like the present usb drives. It gives off a lot of heat, and the price was a little on the high end. Makes a lot of noise too as it is a metal case.
