LaCie Porsche Design Desktop Drives

By Michael Bock on July 12, 2011

Desktop drives by LaCie and Porsche-Design (yes, a subsidiary of the car company Porsche AG)—oozing class via such svelte, modern encasements—resemble small appliances that could’ve come straight out of Frank Lloyd Wright’s ‘Fallingwater’ house.

As LaCie puts it, these drives combine “…design and technology to result in products that are both beautiful and performance-driven.” We couldn’t agree more with the sentiment.

Up for grabs are these two desktop HDDs, one boasting 1 TB of memory, the other 2 TB. Both offer:

  • Cutting-edge USB 3.0 connectivity, for blazing, almost unheard-of transfer speeds
  • Automatic backup of files
  • 10 gigs of free online storage for one year
  • ‘Automatic Eco’ mode that reduces power consumption to and/or from a desktop or laptop
  • Shells that are handsomely textured, 5mm-thick, professional-grade aluminum that’s very strong and helps to dissipate heat.

While you may not live in an uber-swanky joint like Fallingwater, you can still show off this handy piece of sexy tech to friends and family!
