LaCie's 3TB F.A. Porsche-Designed Desktop Hard Drive is a high-capacity, high-speed external hard drive with a sophisticated, bold look and a thick, protective 3mm aluminium-casing. This drive can store a maximum capacity of 3TB and, using the USB 3.0 interface, can transfer that data at up to 5Gbps. To note, this LaCie drive comes pre-formatted for Windows computers and can be reformatted for Mac by installing LaCie's USB 3.0 Mac driver and a LaCie USB 3.0 computer card.
