Porsche Design Form, LaCie Function

With the LaCie Desktop Drive, the exclusive and timeless shape returns, with solid, reliable hardware that's sure to last for years. You can use it anywhere and be confident that you're getting superb performance.

Safe, Strong,

With 5mm of solid aluminum casing surrounding the disk inside, the P'9233 keeps your data solidly protected. LaCie and Porsche Design worked together to combine form and function-resulting in a drive that looks great (and works great!) no matter where you take it.
