Advanced Cooling
for Long-Term Reliability

Since effective cooling is a critical factor in hard disk reliability, LaCie completely redesigned its d2's cooling system. It's solid aluminum casing provides 60% more surface area than flat designs, diverting and dissipating heat more efficiently. Its innovative design means it stays cool without requiring a noise-producing fan. It also has more and larger air holes to facilitate airflow. This efficient and silent cooling system makes the LaCie d2 perfect for even the most noise-sensitive creative environments.

Perfect for Professional Environments

Designed for Convenience
The LaCie d2 was painstakingly designed to integrate seamlessly into professional environments. With its space-saving form, you can stand it alone vertically, stack multiple products horizontally, or install it in a 19" rack with a kit from LaCie. It also features email alerts, so busy professionals can monitor their device before potential problems escalate. Whatever the professional environment, the LaCie d2 delivers convenience and piece of mind.
Support When You Need It
Your LaCie d2 is protected by a three-year limited warranty. It includes comprehensive, complimentary web-based resources, expert in-house technical support, and worldwide repair/replacement coverage.
