Advanced Cooling for Long-Term Reliability
Since effective cooling is a critical factor in hard disk reliability, LaCie completely redesigned its d2's cooling system. It's solid aluminum casing provides 60% more surface area than flat designs, diverting and dissipating heat more efficiently. Its innovative design means it stays cool without requiring a noise-producing fan. It also has more and larger air holes to facilitate airflow. This efficient and silent cooling system makes the LaCie d2 perfect for even the most noise-sensitive creative environments.
