LaCie have just launched a new 500 GB USB 3.0 portable hard drive design by Philippe Starck.


Here is what LaCie says about the Starck Mobile drive:

Sophisticated design
The LaCie Starck Mobile USB 3.0 is the result of a collaboration between LaCie and world-famous designer Philippe Starck. It’s both practical and beautifully designed, down to every last detail. It’s one of our most popular mobile drives, and now, it’s been re-mastered with the new SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface.

USB 3.0: the latest interface technology
USB 3.0 allows you to transfer your files faster than ever before, no matter how large they are, since it’s 10 times faster than USB 2.0*. The LaCie Starck’s portable form factor and high capacity lets you take all your files with you, no matter where you go. Since it’s backward compatible with USB 2.0, you will never have to worry about connectivity.

The strength of metal
Its sturdy 2mm of aluminum casing keeps the LaCie Starck Mobile USB 3.0 from overheating, and helps it to be tough and resistant, enhancing its overall dependability. The polished aluminum exterior is stylish and sturdy, making the LaCie Starck both completely chic and completely mobile.

User-friendly software suite included
The LaCie Starck Mobile USB 3.0 comes with LaCie Setup Assistant software to easily install your drive on PC and Mac. It also includes LaCie Backup Assistant, which helps make automatic backup a snap. In addition, you get 10GB of Wuala Online Storage included for one year to securely store, share and sync your data online.

LaCie drive specs

The LaCie Starck Mobile USB 3.0 drive will be available soon in both the US and the UK, with a retail price of $109.99 in the US and £89.99 in the UK, so not the cheapest drive, but it is USB 3.0 and it is designed by Phillipe Starck. You can learn more from the LaCie website.

  1. I wonder why they would launch only a 500GB. Anyone with a USB 3.0 would have had to install it themselves, be an enthusiast and hence probably need more than 500GB.

    Just my opinion.
