LaCie Starck Desktop and Mobile Hard Drives
French designer Philippe Starck has designed his latest hard drives in collaboration with computer peripheral manufacturer LaCie. Starck first designed a range of hard drives for the company over a decade ago and his latest creations come in two sizes; a desktop hard drive and a mobile hard drive.
First up is the LaCie Starck Desktop hard drive, which sports a strong and durable 3mm thick aluminium case, a touch-sensitive surface that can be customised to open specific applications with a tap of your finger or long touch and a range of automatic backup software to keep all your data safe.
The LaCie Starck Desktop Hard Drive is compatible with Windows XP and above including the brand new Windows 7 OS and Mac OS X version 10.4 and higher, meaning that it will work with almost every modern computer. This hard drive also comes with a range of LaCie software including Backup Assistant, Desktop Manager and Shortcut Button to make backing up easy.
Powered by an external power supply and connected to the PC via a USB 2.0 cable, the LaCie Starck Desktop Hard Drive is capable of transferring up to 60MB/s and measures 195 x 115 x 52mm making it a stand out feature for your desk.
The LaCie Starck Desktop Hard Drive is available now directly from the LaCie website in two versions; a 1TB capacity (£114.99) and a 2TB version (£209.99).
The second of the Philippe Starck designed hard drives is the LaCie Starck Mobile Hard Drive, which has a similar design to the desktop version but boasts a lighter 2mm aluminium case and measuring a smaller 138 x 92 x 20mm.
Supporting the same operating systems as the desktop version and connected to a PC via a USB 2.0 cable, the LaCie Starck Mobile Hard Drive is an ideal solution for people who need to take their data with them.
Available in 320GB (£84.99) and 500GB (£109.99), the LaCie Starck Mobile Hard Drive is a great addition to your PC or Laptop.
