Summary Maximum everything pretty much describes the LaCie d2 USB 3.0 Thunderbolt Series. If you're looking for Direct Attached Storage, this is one you really need to look at.


LaCie has produced a few variations of their d2 line of desktop drives.  We have seen networked NAS drives; we have seen optical drive versions.  More recently, we have seen a USB 3.0 desktop hard drive.  The subject of today’s review goes one step further by incorporating a Thunderbolt input, in addition to the USB 3.0 input, thus making this particular variation both a SuperSpeed (USB 3.0) star on the PC as well as a “LightSpeed” (aka Light Peak, aka Thunderbolt) star on the Mac.


Combining fast USB 3.0/Thunderbolt I/O with 3TB and 4TB hard drives, this variation of the LaCie d2 might just be at the pinnacle of personal storage.  For a PC, a Mac, or both.

Hello. I’m from the heartland of the U.S. Lots of corn and beans, although Iowa is a lot more than just farmland. It also has a few computer enthusiasts (no, not me!). I’ve been around PCs since I got my 1st PC XT aloooong time ago. WGS is one of the first sites I found centered around WHS. And the best. Every once in awhile, I do get away from the KB and enjoy time with and my wife and our 4 kids. And I do have a day job.

    “About the only downside is that the fan is just a smidge on the loud side”
    What Fan is that?

    Fan is loud? Lacie’s site says it’s a fan-free design.
