About LaCie P9220

The LaCie's 500GB Porsche Designed Portable Hard Drive is a small, high-capacity, high-speed external portable hard drive with a sophisticated, bold look and a thick, protective 3mm aluminum-casing. This drive can store a maximum capacity of 500GB and, using the USB 3.0 interface, can transfer that data at up to 5Gbps. To note, while Mac OS X doesn't natively support USB 3.0, you can add USB 3.0 to your Mac computer by installing LaCie's USB 3.0 Mac driver and a LaCie USB 3.0 computer card. The USB 3.0 interface is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0, so you can connect it to any computers that use this older interface.

Along with the drive, you will receive an online Wuala cloud storage account with 10GB for a year and software that includes LaCie's Public-Private as well as Backup Assistant. With this software, you can easily password protect your drive and manage crucial backups for your computer. For managing your power-settings on the drive, included with the software is also an automatic eco-mode that boasts upwards of 40% energy savings.
