Lacie D2 Quadra External Hard Drive w/ Firewire 800 & 400 to USB2 or eSata For GB TB Data Storage

June 2, 2018 Jon 12 Comments

The Lacie D2 Quadra external hard drive line of products are top quality portable hard drives that come in different storage sizes and boast a variety of data connection options for PC and MAC use. Current Lacie hard drive models that are popular range from 1TB, 2TB and more in terms of hard disk space. These portable drives are rugged and are standards in the movie industry and other media intensive uses. These require an AC plug to power, but Lacie makes other ones like their Porsche designed series of bus-powered drives from usb to firewire products. This particular drive has eSata, USB2, F800 and F400 connections. The newer models have USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt connections for the fastest transfer speeds available to date. The unique thing with Lacie drives like the D2, Big Disk or 2Big series is that they are designed without fans, so they’re quiet, but they do heat up as the case acts like a heat sink. If you’re looking for a reliable external hard drive to back up your data, definitely consider a Lacie D2 Quadra or other Lacie external hard drive models.

Thanks for watching / reading…

    Alex, you menton in the video that it's really aimed at Mac users. Since the video was uploaded around 5 years ago, could you tell me if they're made for both today, or still mainly for Mac? Thank you, Richard

    The connector that goes to the drive is the same as pretty much ALL external drives on the market!

    Great review – you and other reviewers are testing the speeds on the drive and proving the speed is not as advertised. Ideally, I want a 4T Portable SSD – any suggestions?

    Is it true that it cannot be used for permanently backing up files? Is it only good to use while editing?

    Do you need to have the Thunderbolt & USB plugged in at the same time? My MacBook doesn't have any USB slots left so i'm looking for an external drive that'll run just off Thunderbolt; would this be for me?
