LaCie P'9223 review: Porsche design and 120GB SSD at a decent price
5 September 2013
Conclusion: When it comes down to it, the P'9223 isn't a bad deal. The drive isn't outrageously priced for the performance you get, and it comes in an attractive package. LaCie also offers a 500GB hard drive in place of the 120GB SSD for just $85, but you won't get the same speed and general reliability of a SSD drive.

Excerpt: Fast, slim, and stylish. These are the three words I would use to describe the new LaCie Porsche Design P’9223 Slim SSD. As you can probably gather from the name, this external drive sports a solid state drive, which means that its capacity is limited as compared to most other external drives which use traditional hard drives. But what this drive lacks in capacity it gains in speed.
Conclusion: If you need an affordable, high-capacity storage device then a conventional hard disk is still the best option. But if you’ve got a MacBook that has an internal SSD drive and you want an external back-up drive that provides equally high performance then the Porsche P’9223 Slim is one of the best and most affordable SSD drives currently available.
Summary: De LaCie Porsche Design P’9223 Slim 120SSD met USB 3.0-aansluiting is heel erg snel. Voor Mac-gebruikers die op zoek zijn naar externe opslag die mooi bij het desing van hun mac past en graag een kleine externe schijf willen aan topspeed: stop met zoeken. Deze schijf is uitstekend. De minder positieve kantjes aan dit snelheidsmonster zijn de beperkte opslagcapaciteit en de bijhorend prijs.
