Every LaCie external storage product I've ever bought led to early demise of the drive due to overheating and poor thermal management. I will never buy LaCie brand again.

OTOH, I've had more LaCie drives than I can count over the past 20 years, and none of the drive mechanisms or enclosures failed. About 15 years ago, two of them suffered failed external power supplies. I replaced those and the drives were fine ever since. Right now, I'm using a 5big TB2, and 2big TB2, two desktop Porsche USB3 drives, and a portable Porsche USB3 4TB drive.
