The Professional Choice for Performance and Reliability

With the new USB 3.0 5 Gb/s interface and up to 5TB, the LaCie d2 Quadra Hard Disk is the ideal tool for creative professionals who need both fast speeds and large storage capacity. It features 7200 RPM drives with a minimum of 32MB cache for the best performance and seek times, so it can handle the most resource-intensive applications. Best of all, it can achieve speeds up to 130 MB/s* in USB 3.0.

The Professional Choice for Cross-Platform Applications

The d2 Quadra has got the latest connectivity with USB 3.0 and two FireWire 800 interfaces for daisy chaining, but it is still fully compatible with eSATA 3 Gb/s, USB 2.0**, and FireWire 400***. With all of its interfaces, the d2 Quadra has universal connectivity, so it’s easy to back up and restore any workstation, no matter the configuration or interfaces. And thanks to the USB 3.0 performance, you can make faster, more frequent backups of your data, keeping it safe and secure. Since the d2 Quadra tops out at a 5TB capacity, it can even be used as a simple and convenient storage expansion for a server.

The Professional Choice for Design

The d2 Quadra’s unique and unobtrusive design is respected in the creative content industry for good reason. The unique, fanless aluminum heat sink design provides an increased surface area, keeping it quiet, safe, and free from dust inside. It can also stand upright, be stacked horizontally with other drives, or even be rackmounted to save desktop space. It’s a superb solution for heavy storage users who want off-site backups and archives of any work environment. For superior energy efficiency, it also has a programmable eco mode, which automatically conserves energy if the drive is inactive for a certain period of time. On top of that, it’s recyclable and ROHS-compliant.
