Lacie Porsche P’9220 runs on USB 3.0, protected by 3mm of aluminum

P9220 500GB = PHP 5,490.00
P9220 1TB = PHP 8,890.00

If you haven’t taken a sip from the Thunderbolt kool-aid and still believe in good old USB 3.0, have a look at this beauty, Lacie P’9220 available in both 500GB and 1TB. Lacie is known to be the most elegant in design among the storage manufacturers. This one is no exception.

For those who want a speed comparison between the “standard” USB 2.0, relatively new USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt, here you go:

USB 2.0 = 35MB to 40MB per second
USB 3.0 = 400MB to 700MB per second
Thunderbolt = 1GB per second

Although slightly slower than Thunderbolt, USB 3.0 is still amazingly fast and slightly more affordable. That’s essentially transferring a standard 8GB HD video in about 10-15 seconds.

Lacie Little Big Drive pushes 10Gb/s with Thunderbolt; 1TB starts at PHP 31,560.00

If you’re in the market for a faster-than-USB external drive, you might want to take a look at Lacie’s latest desktop beauty, the Little Big Drive that pushes transfer speeds up to 10 gigabits per second. If you convert that to actual data transferred, that’s around 1.25GB per second. You can practically transfer a full feature 1080p movie in roughly 8-10 seconds. Now that’s fast.
