From the Lab Review: LaCie d2 Quadra Hard Disk
10 June 2008
Excerpt: (1 items) The LaCie d2 case design has been a staple in LaCie’s external hard drive and optical drive business for years. The company has based many products on this basic design, including the Little Big Disk . Over the years, LaCie has implemented design changes, like a bigger button and corrugated cases for better heat dissipation.
Pros: Four connection options, No cool fans makes for quiet device, Generous software bundle, Programmable button
Cons: No CD copy of the bundled applications, Average performance
Excerpt: The Lacie d2 Quadra offers something we’ve yet to see on an external backup drive – four different interfaces, including USB 2.0, FireWire in both 400 and 800 flavors, and eSata. Even better, Lacie provides cables for all these interfaces as well. It also offers several backup options, as well as the option to format a portion of the drive as a FAT32 volume to work with files from Mac OS and Linux.
Pros: Four interfaces; several backup options; works with PCs, Macs and Time Machine
