Introduction

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.
