SOLD: LaCie 250 GB External Hard Drive $100

201887116.jpgThis week I've secured 2 gently used LaCie d2 250GB hard drives, with Firewire 400, Firewire 800 and USB interfaces. I plan to keep one of them, and am offering the other up for sale here to Rohdesign readers.

A quick check on the web showed prices for new 250GB drives between $125 and $150. since this is a gently used drive, I'm asking $100 plus shipping for the drive.

All firewire and USB cables, power brick and software CD are included.


• LaCie d2 250GB External Hard Drive (300790U)
• FireWire 800
• FireWire 400
• Hi-Speed USB 2.0
• Ultra-quiet, heat dissipating design
• Stack, rack-mount or stand upright
• 7200 rpm
• 8 MB Buffer

"Combining all of the leading interfaces into one drive, the LaCie d2 Hard Drive Extreme with Triple Interface now also comes in higher capacities to handle your most demanding projects and storage needs. It can be easily shared among multiple users and environments and is conveniently plug & play.

With up to 800Mbits/s per bus and up to 64MB/s per drive burst, it's ideal for a variety of professional applications, including digital audio/video, graphic design and system backups. It can be conveniently stacked, stood upright or rack-mounted, and it's specially designed to be ultra-quiet and dissipate heat."

Ooh, I've got one of those! :-) It's very good.

La Cie doesn't reveal what drives its drives (so to speak!). I've had their FW400 fall over when pulling fewer than 16 tracks of 16-bit/44.1kHz audio. OTOH, the Pleides "IceCube" cases have never been a problem. The difference? Other than some custom ASICs, Oxford Systems 9** chips (911, 922, 924) seem to be the only FW transceivers that can sustain the throughput. If you're doing audio or video, don't use anything else for Firewire.
