Seagate touts fastest desktop drive and slimmest 2TB backup drive

Lucas Mearian | Jan. 6, 2016
The LaCie 1TB Chromé desktop drive can ingest two hours of 4K video in just over one minute.

The LaCie Chromé features a two-year limited warranty that can also be extended and upgraded. The Chromé is expected to be available as early as this quarter (but likely in the March time frame) at a retail price of $1,100, LaCie said.

LaCie also announced two new drives based on designs from Porsche. Both are targeted at Apple hardware with its brushed aluminum finishes and rounded edges.

The Porshe Design Mobile Drive comes in 1TB, 2TB and 4TB capacities. Unlike the Chromé, the Porshe Mobile Drive offers USB 3.1/Type C connector technology and has a USB 3.0 adapter for backward compatibility.

The LaCie Porsche Design Mobile Drive will available in March with a starting price of $110.

LaCie's new Porsche Design Desktop Drive comes in 4TB, 5TB and 8TB capacities and uses a single 3.5-in hard disk drive. It can charge a compatible laptop's battery when the drive's power supply is connected to the wall outlet. Via a single USB-C cable, users can power their notebook and access their drive at the same time.
