For our next review we take a look at the 1TB Porsche Design Mobile Drive P’9220 external hard drive from LaCie.
This is how LaCie describe the P’9220:
The LaCie Porsche Design P’9220 mobile hard drive is more than just a place to store your files-it’s a collaboration between one of the most renowned design firms in the world and LaCie. With the P’9220, we’ve combined speed, design, and technology to result in a different breed of mobile drive.
LaCie first partnered with Porsche Design in 2003 to produce one of the most iconic and enduringly popular external hard drives on the market. Since then the two companies have worked closely to create products that blend flawless functionality and pure design. The luxury brand and the leading technology company complement each other, with technical influence from LaCie, together with an exclusive and timeless shape presented by Porsche Design.
Safe, Strong, and Aluminum Porsche Design is known worldwide for their sophisticated, timeless creations, and the P’9220 is no exception. With 3mm of strong aluminum casing surrounding the drive inside, you can be sure that your data is solidly protected. LaCie and Porsche Design worked together to combine form and function-resulting in a mobile drive that looks great (and works great)-no matter where you take it.
