Posted by at 11:57 am on September 10, 2014

Seagate’s LaCie today announced the latest evolution of its d2 desktop storage line. The latest LaCie d2 features a new all-aluminum unibody enclosure, dual Thunderbolt 2, and USB 3.0. Plus, LaCie designed the d2 Thunderbolt 2 to be upgradable with a SSD daughterboard, which boosts speeds up to 1150 MB/s when the SSD is accessed.

The new LaCie d2 combines USB 3.0 with a pair of Thunderbolt 2 ports and up to a Seagate 6TB 7200 RPM hard disk, resulting in speeds of up to 220 MB/s when accessing just the hard drive. The dual Thunderbolt 2 ports let the user daisy chain up to six devices to a single Thunderbolt port on a computer.

Users can also install the LaCie d2 SSD Upgrade (sold separately). The upgrade increases speeds up to 1150 MB/s and adds 128 GB of PCIe SSD storage at the expense of the USB 3.0 port.

The LaCie d2 Thunderbolt 2 will be available this month through AppleĀ® and LaCie in 3TB ($299), 4TB ($399) and 6TB ($499) capacities. The 128 GB LaCie d2 SSD Upgrade ($299) will be available in October. The LaCie d2 will also be offered in a USB 3.0-only version in 3 TB, 4 TB, and 5 TB capacities, available in October.
