LaCie 2Big USB 3.0 Breaks 300MB/s Barrier with 3TB Hard Drives


October 28, 2010

Today, LaCie demonstrates technology leadership with the availability of 3TB hard drives and the demonstration of record speeds in two of its professional storage solutions – LaCie d2 USB 3.0 and LaCie 2big USB 3.0.

Thanks to the inclusion of 3TB hard drives and the performance of USB 3.0, LaCie's 2big USB 3.0, now available in 6TB, achieves a dramatic 20% speed boost by reaching 306MB/s –the fastest performance of any 2-bay RAID solution to-date. The d2 USB 3.0 also demonstrates a significant speed increase of 156MB/s with the inclusion of a 3TB hard drive.

"There is no question heavy data users continue to demand higher capacities, and in turn faster transfer speeds," said Erwan Girard, Business Unit Manager for Professional Products. "Today, LaCie answered this challenge by introducing the largest available capacity and fastest transfer speeds in a single solution, providing users with increased backup efficiency and reduced risk for backup interruption."

Availability
The LaCie 2big USB 3.0 6TB and LaCie d2 USB 3.0 3TB will be available, worldwide, at the beginning of November. For more information, visit www.lacie.com.
