USB-C: Future Compatibility

USB-C 3.1 clearly makes the most sense going forward, which is why we built the highest level of performance and compatibility into the latest LaCie d2 Professional. Take advantage of the fully reversible USB-C cables and the USB-C to USB type A adapter which can be used on any PC or Mac. You can expect up to 260MB/s for all your epic workflows along with fast file transfer rates of up to 5Gb/s.

Solid Components. Solid Investment.


Enclosure

Forged from a single sheet of aluminum, the enclosure provides uncommon rigidity for long-term durability.


Cooling

The whisper-quiet fan and heat-dissipating aluminum enclosure pull heat away from the HDD, keeping it running fast and healthy.


5-Year Limited Warranty

Choose with confidence. The LaCie d2 Professional is backed by the industry’s most generous warranty.

Review

At CES 2017, I talked with Lance at LaCie about their new line of USB-C Thunderbolt 3 products. The D2 line of hard drives got an upgrade to the new protocol, with hard drive support up to 10 TB, but can be daisy-chained to other D2's (not in RAID).


Review

With the new d2, LaCie again raised the bar on the industry’s most trusted desktop storage product. Get the job done faster – on any computer – with dual Thunderbolt 2, USB 3.0, and a 7200 RPM hard disk. Thanks to its innovative, all-aluminum unibody design, you’ll notice incredibly low vibration and operating noise. It’s even possible to push speeds to up to five times faster by installing the LaCie d2 SSD Upgrade (sold separately).
