At Mac Outpost we recommend and sell the LaCie line of hard drives and peripherals. LaCie – pronounced la-see – is a company manages to combine design and technology to result in creations that are both beautiful and performance-driven. The company has many parallels with Apple in that the company offers products that are the perfect mix of form and function.
You can always feel confident when you use LaCie’s drives. It’s easy to replace a keyboard, processor, or printer—but not your data. Your life is on your hard drive; you need to be able to back up to a second place easily, and feel like you’ve made the best choice for your data’s safety and security. LaCie offers you this choice through its products and their new online service called Wuala.
Recognizing current trends, LaCie develops network- and multimedia-centric products, while creating everything from massive multi-terabyte systems to minuscule USB keys. As such, LaCie offers products that meet the demanding needs of enterprise customers as well as the changing tastes of the individual consumer. Products are offered in a wide variety on enclosure and interface types
Over the past ten years LaCie has consistently been first-to-market with such innovations as the first USB/FireWire board, SCSI drive, USB bus-powered hard drive, SATA external drive, FireWire 800 hard drive and 1TB hard drive. LaCie have always been a company that has Mac support as a core of their business.
Many LaCie products are a result of collaboration with world-famous designers such as Porsche Design, Frenchman Ora-Ito and Philippe Starck and most famously, Scotland’s Neil Poulton. Poulton is responsible for the design of many LaCie products, most notably the durable and aesthetic aluminum d2 enclosure that has become a hallmark of the LaCie product line. Starck is also known as the designer of former Apple chief Steve Jobs $85 million yacht! When you buy a LaCie product you are literally buying a piece of art!
LaCie drives come with warranties up to three or even five years! Entry level products come with a one year warranty while the highest-end products aimed at the professional market are manufactured with enterprise-class drives and have three to five year warranties. While you may find cheaper products you will not find a product with better quality or design – two of the principles you had in mind when your purchased your Apple computer!
