Mini is cool. But Lacie isn't on my list of better drive makers. I had one and it died after it went out of warranty. 3 days after the warranty was up. The three WD drives I bought are still working fine 3 years later.
Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
What drives does Lacie use? I know they don't make their own drives.
