Safe Harbor Computers

Celebrating 25 years of outstanding Customer Service:

Safe Harbor is dedicated to providing innovative solutions to video editing, motion graphics, 3D animation & post production professionals. When you're on the phone, how often is your first contact a machine? Plenty, we're sure. Imagine your surprise when a REAL voice greets you at Safe Harbor!

Phone menus and voice mail are NOT our links to you. Quite the contrary, you'll experience a refreshing change of pace when you call us! Our goal is "personalized service," right from the start, and here's what that means for you:

It means you will talk to REAL people — people with a great, positive attitude, people who have gigabytes of information in front of them and in their brain, people with experience, and people with a personality. The Safe Harbor staff is friendly, eager to help, knowledgeable, and fully equipped to steer you in the right direction. In addition to our own expertise, our custom, in-house database includes vendor phone numbers, contact names of real people, web addresses, and FAQs, so if WE can't help you with your question right there, on the spot, we'll find a source, and then BOTH of us will know the answer.

We are here only to help you, our valued customer. If we are also privileged to earn your trust with an order you place with us, we will treat your request personally, every step of the way. Your order and customer information are checked and double-checked; shipping charges are reviewed; we'll suggest alternate shipping methods if it makes sense; we'll give you ETA's, other available products to enhance your purchase, what tutorials might be helpful, and the delivery method. If you also need to know the shipping origination, product registration information, how to upgrade, compatibility concerns, or options for financing your purchase, just ask.

The next time you're looking for quality editing or animation software or hardware, look to Safe Harbor for a professional AND personable experience.

4 out of 5 eggs Misleading labeling, not Thunderbolt 3 compatible

The detail is in the fine print, this drive does not support actual Thunderbolt 3 connectivity and speeds. It uses USB C which means the physical port is the same as Thunderbolt 3, which is where the "support" ends. I wouldn't have purchased the drive at all had I known that.

4 out of 5 eggs Purchase of Expensive Equipment

I was kept abreast of the status of my order without having to get it myself. The provision of tracking numbers in that email correspondence gave me confidence that the equipment would arrive on time for installment.

4 out of 5 eggs The delivery date was postponed 3 different times

The delivery date kept being pushed back 3 times until I finally received my item. I understand that we're not operating in normal times now because of the lockdown but this can be taken into account in estimating the time for delivery. After all it worked out but it definitely affect my deadline on the other end of this project.

4 out of 5 eggs

I chose to contact the manufacturer directly about a technical issue. They required me to use email and their two responses were completely unhelpful. I am going to consider contacting Safe Harbor at this point since I have lost interest in "talking" to LaCie.

4 out of 5 eggs Delivered the wrong laCie Porsche 2TB Drive now ghosting me.

Order a 2TB lacie drive model STFD2000400 (usb-C) and was delivered an outdated laCie drive model STET2000403 (Only USB 3, USB2). I called NewEgg who said that I had bought it from a third party. That I had not bought from NewEgg (Even though I went to their web site.) Then the forwarded me to the actual vendor. I got one email back and now they are ghosting me. This was a bad experience.
