More Info

The 2TB Rugged USB 3.0 Thunderbolt Series Portable Hard Drive by LaCie combines a small form factor with a large hard drive for the most optimal storage solution for today's Ultrabook crowd. It's a 2TB 5400 rpm hard drive encased in a rugged, drop resistant case. It also features both a USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt port for the best performance in transfer speed.

With USB 3.0 already at a maximum interface transfer rate of 5Gbps, Thunderbolt seems like overkill at 10Gbps. But since the drive can be formatted with Mac or Windows partitions, it just adds another layer of functionality to the drive. Now you can take advantage of the unit's portability and connect to Macs with Thunderbolt or PCs with USB 3.0. At 2TB, the drive is essential for digital artists and data managers who take their work from station to station.

The LaCie Rugged USB 3.0 Thunderbolt series also features an average transfer rate of 110MBps on both the Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 ports (five times faster than FireWire 800), is MIL-compliant with a drop resistance to 4' (1.2m) and includes backup software and AES 256-bit encryption. There's even 10GB of Wuala Secure Cloud Storage included.

The unit is bus powered - no need for external power supplies or cluttering electrical cords. You can take this portable drive anywhere - it doesn't take up much room in a laptop bag or briefcase. And it's bus power lends true freedom to power users who need extra storage when they're on-the-go. It's especially important in the era of ever decreasing hard drive capacities for Ultrabooks and small-form laptops.

The unit can be formatted for Mac and Windows partitions when the disk utility detects the drive on start up. It also includes both a USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt cable.

This potable drive can be used in SuperSpeed USB 3.0 mode, or it can connect to older computers and laptops using USB 2.0. Because it is fully bus-powered, it is truly portable - making it a great companion to low-capacity Ultrabooks.
Get fast transfer speeds on Mac and PC thanks to the USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt interfaces. This HDD performs up to 110MB/s, a 35% improvement over FireWire 800. Back up and transfer a large amount of data in a fraction of the time. Enjoy noticeably more responsive photo library browsing.
User-Friendly Software
LaCie Setup Assistant lets you get started with ease. Included Private-Public software even password-protects your files from prying eyes with AES 256-bit encryption. Benefit from automatic data backup for both Mac and PC via Backup Assistant. Additionally, 10GB of Wuala Secure Cloud Storage is included for one year, allowing you to store and share your data online safely
