LaCie 2TB d2 Quadra Hard Disk


With 2TB of storage space, full compatibility and connectivity features, and fast data transfer capabilities, this LaCie d2 Quadra hard drive is the best external hard drive for power users and creative professionals.

Like LaCie's many business-class external hard drives, the d2 Quadra provides high data transfer speeds, with USB 3.0 connections capable of transferring up to 130 MB/s. The d2 Quadra uses at least memory caches of 32 MB to deliver the fastest seek times, allowing resource-intensive applications to boot more quickly and run more smoothly. The hard drive's high-speed components also make regular data backups a breeze.

The LaCie d2 Quadra is equipped to support various interfaces, including USB 2.0 and 3.0, FireWire 400 and 800, and eSATA, to ensure usability with a wider range of devices. For added convenience, this hard drive offers a variety of space-saving configuration options: single hard drives can stand upright, while multiple hard drives can be stacked horizontally or rack-mounted. The same multi-configuration features are also available for the LaCie d2 USB 3.0 Thunderbolt hard drive.

It features 7200 rpm drives with a minimum of 32MB cache for the best performance and seek times, so it can handle the most resource-intensive applications. Best of all, it can achieve speeds up to 130MB/s in USB 3.0.


The Professional Choice for Cross-Platform Applications

The d2 Quadra has got the latest connectivity with USB 3.0 and two FireWire 800 interfaces for daisy chaining, but it is still fully compatible with, eSATA 3Gb/s, USB 2.0 and FireWire 400.

And thanks to the USB 3.0 performance, you can make faster, more frequent backups of your data, keeping it safe and secure. Since the d2 Quadra tops out at a 3TB capacity, it can even be used as a simple and convenient storage expansion for a server.

Excellent drive, 2011-11-28
By Soren 
I'm very pleased with this device. It's strong, stylish, has USB 3.0 which is great. It also has 2 Firewire 800 ports and eSATA. The hard drive itself spins at 7200 rpm, which is great. The large video files are transferred very quickly, the drive doesn't hang, and its efficiency only deserves praise. The casing is made of aluminum, with special ribbed surface for maximum heat dispersion. It works quietly and quickly.

excellent external hard drive, 2011-10-01
By ahanna 
This is my third LaCie drive. The other two still work after several years of pretty intense use. The drive is quiet, very well built, has a good choice of interfaces, attractive design, and most importantly performs as expected.

Compact, stylish and quiet, 2011-10-27
By BB. 
A nice and reliable external drive. I've been using it for a couple of months now and it's been working great. The drive is so quiet that even my laptop's fan makes more noise. For me this is an important advantage for a desktop drive. It is very convenient to be able to connect other devices via FireWire ports. The speed is very fast, and the overall build quality is top notch.

Reliable Drive!, 2012-08-02
By itFnilSae 
I started using this drive a month ago and started religiously backing up my data. The other day I lost some valuable documents and was in a panic about how to get them back. Then I remembered the built-in data restore options with the d2, hey presto, I'm back up and running again. Thank you Lacie!

good product, 2012-10-26
By KenC 
I bought one of these drives for my iTunes library. I had way too much music and video filling up my computer but I moved it all to my Lacie and now it runs much better. The drive works perfectly, just what I needed!

Fast and Quiet, 2012-11-24
By Zach L. 
Bought a couple of these for off-site data backup. I cycle through them over the course of a month – basically keeping weekly backups for a month at a time, and then onto tape for long term storage. These are great, I can store an entire week's data and email backups on a single drive, then transfer to offsite storage in a couple of hours.

Great Drive, 2013-01-05
By Hume 
Highly recommend this drive, it has lots of space and all the necessary interfaces for transferring and backing up large files. I've been using eSATA, but the USB 3.0 is so fast that I'm thinking of switching to it full-time once I upgrade my PC. My backups are very large, and being able to run them quickly is a massive bonus. Overall, I'm very pleased with this unit.

Excellent!, 2013-02-10
By PJaxon 
The software that comes with this drive is amazing. It made setting up the drive so much quicker and easier. I can now push the shortcut button and know that my backup will start running for me and the blue light on the front gives me reassuring comfort that the drive is doing its job.

so far so good, 2013-02-28
By Jasper W. 
First off, this drive works very well. I've got it hooked up via USB 3.0 to my laptop and the speeds are very good. It doesn't make much noise. The storage capacity, and the build quality are great.
