It’s even possible to push speeds to up to five times faster by installing the LaCie d2 SSD Upgrade. With best-in-class speed, versatility, and durability, the new LaCie d2 sets a new standard for desktop storage.
Versatility for Professional Environments
The new LaCie d2 combines Thunderbolt 2 and USB 3.0 interfaces to deliver the best possible speeds when connected to any late-model PC or Mac computer. Dual Thunderbolt 2 ports let you daisy chain up to six devices to a single Thunderbolt port on a computer. This means that you could connect up to five LaCie d2 plus a 4K display to an iMac computer’s Thunderbolt 2 port, bringing remarkable scalability and convenience to 4K or other workflows. And since USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt 2 are backward compatible, you always get the absolute fastest speeds your computer allows.
No-Compromise Speed for Leaner Workflows
Professional components yield professional speeds. The LaCie d2 provides speeds of up to 220MB/s making it possible to store and browse a massive RAW Adobe Lightroom library with zero lag. High speeds plus industry-best capacity makes the LaCie d2 the perfect solution for storing large files and archiving projects.
Upgradeable to External Hybrid Storage
Install the optional LaCie d2 SSD Upgrade (sold separately) to multiply speeds by a factor of five, with zero compromise in capacity. At up to 1150MB/s, the LaCie d2 with the d2 SSD Upgrade delivers speeds that exceed the performance of even the internal SSD on your late-model PC or Mac computer—in a single-disk enclosure. Simply remove the rear panel on the LaCie d2 to install the upgrade, and instantly you have an additional 128GB of SSD storage. Two separate drives mount on the computer: one for the SSD, and one for the hard disk. Use the SSD for bandwidth-intensive tasks such as fast file transfers, audio mixing, video editing, or OS booting, and use the hard disk for file archiving. No other solution offers this level of performance and capacity in such a compact footprint.
Designed for Peak Performance and Durability
The unibody casing is forged from a single sheet of aluminum, providing uncommon rigidity for long-term durability and premium quality. This fan-free, one-piece design draws heat away from the hard disk, and the base of the d2 helps dissipate heat, too. The results are a long lifespan and ultra-quiet operation. In addition to dissipating heat, the base is cushioned to absorb excess vibration that can damage the hard disc of affect performance. To prevent accidental disconnect ions that can interrupt workflow and corrupt data, the d2 has a built-in cord management system that ensures the hard drive remains plugged in at all times.
