LaCie Shows Off New Porsche USB 3.0 HDDs

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 27 comments

LaCie today unveiled a couple of USB 3.0 HDDs as part of a collaboration with Porsche.

USB 3.0 offers faster data transfers so it seems fitting that LaCie enlisted the help of a company like Porsche to design its new USB 3.0 hard drives. Building on an eight-year-old relationship with Porsche Design, the company today celebrated the addition of the P9220 (mobile) and P9230 (desktop) HDDs to its P9000 line of electronics.

Boasting a scratch-resistant aluminum casing, the LaCie Porsche Design mobile HDD (P9220) comes in 500GB and 1TB capacities. A 750GB model will be available exclusively in the worldwide Porsche Design Stores. The desktop model, the P9230, comes in 1TB and 2TB capacities. All will be available through the LaCie Online Store, LaCie Corner, and LaCie reseller+ starting at $104.99.

    'Dont underestimate the power of the Apple.' Lord Jobs said.

    'Listen to your inner penguin' Jedi Linus whispered to Luke.

    Strange that the one "exclusive to Porsche Design Stores" has an intermediate capacity. Seems like it would actually be something worth being exclusive.

    Yeah, and if you had two girls equally skilled in bed, but one was significantly better looking than the other, which one would you choose?


    Yeah, I thought so.

    I have two laCie drives both made out of plastic both advertised as stackable but two different "designs". They are fuggly I guess. I would rather know what drive is inside and if it has an on/off button and does it come loaded with all that nifty crapware installed for "easy" backups.

    I got tired these externals and use an internal hard drive docking bay now and cheap 2t drives.

    The design of these HDDs is attractive, and part of the price is for the brand.
