LaCie has updated its LaCie Rugged and d2 storage solutions, which are now faster, offer greater capacities and reliability.
First, the new LaCie Rugged Thunderbolt USB-C combines Rugged toughness with USB-C compatibility and fast Thunderbolt speeds. Users can store even more footage, and so carry fewer devices, thanks to the mobile HDD capacity up to 5TB. The LaCie Rugged features Seagate BarraCuda drive. In addition, the 1TB SSD version delivers speeds of up to 510MB/s, a 30 percent increase over the previous SSD generation.
Thanks to USB-C, the user can connect the LaCie Rugged drive to USB 3.0-compatible computers as well as to USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 models. Plus, with an integrated Thunderbolt cable featuring compatibility with first-generation Thunderbolt and Thunderbolt 2, this LaCie Rugged drive can be used with more types of computers than other storage solutions. Shock, dust, and water resistance means the LaCie Rugged drive is up for any adventure. The LaCie Rugged drive is also bus-powered and is backed by a three-year limited warranty.
Next, the new LaCie d2 Thunderbolt 3 is a companion to limited-capacity SSD-based laptops and all-in-one computers to expand storage up to 10TB for professional bandwidth-intensive creative applications. Featuring Thunderbolt 3 and USB 3.1 speeds through the USB-C port, the new LaCie d2 drive performs great on late-model laptops such as the new MacBook Pro - as well as on USB 3.0 computers. With capacities of up to 10TB the LaCie d2 drive can easily store large photo and video projects. It features a Seagate BarraCuda Pro 7200RPM hard disk drive.
The LaCie d2 is featuring speeds of up to 240MB/s, a ten percent improvement over the previous generation. Dual Thunderbolt 3 ports mean the user can daisy chain dual 4K displays, a single 5K display or up to six total LaCie d2 drives- all through a single cable connected to their computer. It's even possible to power a compatible laptop such the latest MacBook Pro through a USB-C port. The LaCie d2 is also backed by a five-year limited warranty.
The new LaCie Rugged drive will come in 2TB, 4TB and 5TB HDD and 500GB and 1TB SSD capacities starting at $249.99. The LaCie d2 drive will come in 6TB, 8TB and 10TB capacities starting at $429.99. The drives will be available at LaCie resellers worldwide this quarter.
