  • Performance and Reliability
    With the new USB 3.0 5Gb/s interface and up to 3TB, the LaCie d2 Quadra Hard Disk is the ideal tool for creative professionals who need both fast speeds and large storage capacity. It features 7200 rpm drives with a minimum of 32MB cache for the best performance and seek times, so it can handle the most resource-intensive applications. Best of all, it can achieve speeds up to 130MB/s in USB 3.0
  • Cross-Platform Applications
    The d2 Quadra has got the latest connectivity with USB 3.0 and two FireWire 800 interfaces for daisy chaining, but it is still fully compatible with, eSATA 3Gb/s, USB 2.0 and FireWire 400. It’s even USB 3.0-compatible on Mac® computers, thanks to LaCie’s USB 3.0 driver for Mac OS. With all of its interfaces, the d2 Quadra has universal connectivity, so it is easy to back up and restore any workstation, no matter the configuration and interfaces. And thanks to the USB 3.0 performance, you can make faster, more frequent backups of your data, keeping it safe and secure. Since the d2 Quadra tops out at a 3TB capacity, it can even be used as a simple and convenient storage expansion for a server
  • Design
    The d2 Quadra’s unique and unobtrusive design is respected in the creative content industry for good reason. The unique, fanless aluminum heat sink design provides an increased surface area, keeping it quiet, safe, and free from dust inside. It can also stand upright, be stacked horizontally with other drives, or even be rackmounted to save desktop space. It’s a superb solution for heavy storage users who want off-site backups and archives of any work environment. For superior energy efficiency, it also has a programmable eco mode, which automatically conserves energy if the drive is inactive for a certain period of time. On top of that, it’s recyclable and ROHS-compliant
  • Functional and User-Centric Features
    With the preloaded LaCie Desktop Manager?, you can easily configure the shortcut button to launch the application of your choice in one push and configure your drive’s eco mode. And, with its two-color front LED indicator, it is easy to check the drive status. It also includes Genie® Backup Assistant software and Intego® Backup Assistant software with data restore for Windows® and Mac.
