Product Information

  • Overview

    Universal connectivity

    With both USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt interfaces, the LaCie d2 is a perfect match for your Mac. And because USB 3.0 is backwards compatible, you can connect it to any standard computer.

    No-compromise speed

    Get lightning-fast transfer speeds thanks to the USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt ports. With performance up to 180 MB/s* – twice as fast as FireWire 800 and more than four times as fast as USB 2.0. Back up and transfer mountains of data in a fraction of the time. Enjoy more responsive photo library browsing. Save time and get better performance when using A/V editing tools.

    Advanced cooling for long-term reliability

    The solid aluminium casing provides 60% more surface area than flat designs, diverting and dissipating heat more efficiently. Its innovative design means it stays cool without requiring a noise-producing fan. This efficient and silent cooling system is perfect for even the most noise-sensitive creative environments.

    Designed for convenience

    With its space-saving form, you can stand the LaCie d2 drive alone vertically, stack multiple products horizontally or install it in a 19-inch rack with a kit from LaCie. It also features email alerts, so you can monitor your device before potential problems escalate.

    About Thunderbolt

    Thunderbolt is a revolutionary I/O technology that supports high-resolution displays and high-performance data devices via one simple port and a cable that carries both DisplayPort and PCI Express data. And it’s standard on every Mac.

    PCI Express is the technology that links all the high-performance components in a Mac. And it’s built into Thunderbolt, which means you can get PCI Express speed outside the box.

    Thunderbolt gives you up to 10 Gbps in both directions, allowing for super-fast data transfer between peripherals. You also have enough bandwidth to daisy-chain multiple high-speed devices without using a hub or switch.

    Thunderbolt also provides double the power of USB 3.0, delivering 10 watts to peripherals for improved performance on the go.

If you want This works well as a Time Machine backup disk or as a scratch disk for video editing. The transfer speeds are great. If you want faster read/write times then grab something with flash storage instead, but for the average consumer this should work fine.

    I like that it spins down and sleeps when the computer does, and particularly like that it also has a dedicated on/off switch unlike some other drives.

    It looks great paired up with an iMac. The d2 line has rock solid performance and reliability and this seems to continue that trend.

    Under Snow Leopard, Lion and Mt Lion this thunderbolt device sleeps with the system . Awakens with the system and copy speeds rang Under Snow Leopard, Lion and Mt Lion this thunderbolt device sleeps with the system . Awakens with the system and copy speeds range between 130 megs/sec to 160.

    Compared to the Little Big Disk it takes a few seconds to wind up after awake but no big deal. Does not slow the shutdown time of the system.

    Only drawback is the one thunderbolt port, so must place at the end of the daisy chain.

It pairs very well with Time Machine. It has a sleek design, and can be mounted horizontally or vertically. I have it upright on a stand that came with the drive. With 3TB of space, I use it as a backup drive for pretty much everything I have on my iMac. It holds a lot, and I have only used 2TB so far.

The first one worked like a charm: it's silent, the build quality is great and everything you need (even the Thunderbolt cable) is in the box. But the other one... It was a LOT noisier than the first, the casing became extremely hot during normal operation, and a constant clicking sound was emanating from the drive's read/write head, even when there were no file transfers going on. This is never a good sign, so I ordered a replacement, which is working just fine.

    My 2 cents: this is an excellent and solid drive, unless you're out of luck and get a lemon. LaCie might have problems with quality control problem, but to be fair, so do most consumer-grade drive manufacturers nowadays.

    I'd also like to commend Apple for a very fast replacement service: I ordered the two disks on Friday, got them (and filed the complaint) on Monday, and the replacement arrived today (Thursday). Well done.

Both drives are solid performances. I haven't had any issues with either of them. This model in particular is fast and works beautifully with Time Machine. It is really nice to get something that works exactly as you expected.
