LaCie d2 hard drive gets USB 3.0, Thunderbolt connectivity
LaCie's d2 hard drive now features USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt connectivity together with the latest 4TB, 7200rpm hard drives.
The LaCie d2 performs at speeds up to 180MB/s, twice as fast as FireWire 800 and nearly four times faster than USB 2.0. These speeds allow the user to transfer a 10GB project in less than one minute, back up a computer in record time, easily edit video in demanding applications and browse through photo libraries without delay, says Erwan Girard, business unit manager, LaCie. Plus with 256-bit AES encryption the data is always secure, he adds.
The LaCie d2 features a solid aluminum casing that purportedly provides 60% more surface area than flat designs. Its design means it stays cool without requiring a fan.
The LaCie d2 is available with a full back up software suite in 3TB and 4TB capacities through the LaCie Online Store and LaCie Resellers starting at US$299. For more info go to www.lacie.com .
