From the Manufacturer
The LaCie d2 Quadra 1.5 TB External Hard Drive features plenty of storage space for your large files, as well as four interfaces for universal connectivity. The versatile d2 Quadra also features a stylish, space-saving design that complements many laptops and desktops and enhances the look of any work space.
Four Interfaces to Fit Your Setup
The drive features USB 2.0, FireWire 400, FireWire 800, and eSATA interfaces, ensuring universal compatibility with any Mac or PC. USB 2.0 offers up to a 480-Mbps transfer rate, while eSATA provides superior transfer speeds of up to three gigabits per second. And the two FireWire ports let you daisy-chain a second drive easily. For speed-critical work such as video editing, eSATA provides the performance you need to work directly onto the drive, while the other interfaces ensure that you\'ll be able to connect your drive to any computer no matter where you are, and access your files.
Speedy Drive Performance for Complex Files
This high-speed drive has a 1.5 TB of space and can hold thousands of music, video, and photo files. A rotational speed of 7,200 rpm and a cache of at least 16 megabytes makes it fast enough to edit music and video directly on the drive, so it\'s perfect for professionals, and its easy setup makes it simple enough for anyone to use. If you don\'t need quite so much space, the d2 Quadra also comes in 1 TB and 500 GB capacities.
You can configure the d2 Quadra to fit your needs by daisy-chaining multiple drives, which can give you RAID 1 potential for data redundancy and protection or RAID 0 for even greater speed.
The d2 Quadra also offers three power management options: \"auto\" for energy efficiency; \"on\" for instant access; and \"off\" for data protection. A smart fan automatically turns on and off depending on the temperature, ensuring that the drive stays cool and quiet. The drive also lets you back up files or launch applications with a simple push of the blue button on the front. This shortcut button can be configured to launch any document or application or to initiate automated backups.
The d2 Quadra 1.5 TB offers:
- 1.5 TB of total disk space.
- Fanless aluminum heat sink design for superior heat dissipation.
- USB 2.0, FireWire 400/800, and eSATA connections.
- High-speed 7,200 rpm drive performance.
Smart, Elegant Design
Styled by renowned product designer Neil Poulton, the d2 Quadra looks stunning and complements any system. The durable aluminum casing offers excellent heat dissipation. And thanks to the drive\'s detachable stand, it can be placed vertically to save space or horizontally to stack multiple drives. The drive can even be rack-mounted to fit into audio/video setups.
Measuring a slim 1.7 x 6.3 x 6.8 inches (WxHxD) and weighing 3.31 pounds, the drive is compact enough to transfer your multimedia files between home and work or to back up multiple machines at home.
