LaCie Shows Off New Porsche USB 3.0 HDDs

USB 3.0 offers faster data transfers so it seems fitting that LaCie enlisted the help of a company like Porsche to design its new USB 3.0 hard drives. Building on an eight-year-old relationship with Porsche Design, the company today celebrated the addition of the P9220 (mobile) and P9230 (desktop) HDDs to its P9000 line of electronics.

Boasting a scratch-resistant aluminum casing, the LaCie Porsche Design mobile HDD (P9220) comes in 500GB and 1TB capacities. A 750GB model will be available exclusively in the worldwide Porsche Design Stores. The desktop model, the P9230, comes in 1TB and 2TB capacities. All will be available through the LaCie Online Store, LaCie Corner, and LaCie reseller+ starting at $104.99.

    Man I bet Lacie had to pay Porche a LOT of money for their design services. They're basically paying for the name right? pffft, give me numbers to drool over, not looks. I'd rather have a plain looking USB3.0 drive with 250MB read & write than one that "looks cool" but has mediocre performance any day!

    Porche has a design team?! - They must have had some time on their hands, their cars have barely changed design in decades! :-P
