Proven Design, Redefined. With SSD Speed Potential:
Professional speeds of up to 220MB/s. These transfer rates were achieved using AJA System Test when connected to a Mac computer via the Thunderbolt 2 interface. Actual data rates may vary depending on operating environment and other factors, such as chosen interface and disk capacity.
USB 3.0 and dual Thunderbolt 2 ports for universal compatibility
Aluminum unibody for reduced noise and vibration
Boost speeds up to 1150MB/s with d2 SSD Upgrade:
These transfer rates can be achieved by installing the LaCie d2 SSD Upgrade on a LaCie d2 Thunderbolt 2. The LaCie d2 SSD Upgrade is only compatible with the LaCie d2 Thunderbolt 2.
Get the job done faster-on any computer-with dual Thunderbolt 2, USB 3.0, and an optional 8TB enterprise-class hard drive. 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. With best-in-class speed, versatility, and durability, the LaCie d2 sets a new standard for desktop storage.
Versatility for Professional Environments:
The 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 conveniTo achieve full interface bandwidth, connect the product to either a USB 3.0 or Thunderbolt 2 port on a computer or device. You always get the absolute fastest speeds your computer allows.
No-Compromise Speed for Leaner Workflows:
Professional components yield professional speeds. The LaCie d2 combines best-in-class interfaces with a Seagate 6TB 7200RPM hard disk, resulting in stunning speeds of up to 220MB/s. With this speed, it's 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.
Innovative Design, Breakthrough Durability:
When recreating the industrial design of the d2, LaCie focused relentlessly on reliability and usability for professionals.
The casing is forged from a single sheet of aluminum, providing uncommon rigidity for long-term durability and premium quality.
For Thunderbolt connections, save energy by pressing the power button to spin down disks without interrupting daisy chain transfers. For USB connections, disk spins down automatically when the host operating system goes to sleep.
The seamless, all-aluminum unibody enclosure draws heat away from the hard disk. The integrated base extends the enclosure?s surface area, providing even more space for heat dissipation. The results are a long lifespan for components and ultra-quiet operation.
Integrated Cable Management
Prevent accidentally disconnected interface or power cables without compromising the look and design of the product.
A cushioning base and vibration-absorbing hard disk mounts combine to dramatically reduce vibration.

Rated 5 out of
FAST & Well Made - FoolproofThis external drive by LaCie features Usb 3 and Thunderbolt - I bought it of the Thunderbolt as my iMac does not have USB 3.
It is FAST and simple to use. This is a high capacity drive so I partioned it to allow for Time Machine Backups and left an area where I can store other stuff in a different format.
This IS a Great drive and so far its performance is Excellent and it is built like a tank.
