The official marketing text of LaCie 301871U 2048GB Black external hard drive as supplied by the manufacturer
The user-friendly LaCie Hard Disk, Design by Neil Poulton adds sophisticated style to your desktop, yet its presence is quiet and unobtrusive. It has a unique distinguishing feature—a blue LED strip on its underside that creates an ambient glow. Its subtle, all-black design blends perfectly into dark home entertainment setups and workstations. Very small for its vast capacity, this lightweight, compact drive has a fashionable, mirror-polished finish. The smartly engineered design allows for heat dissipation and near-silent, fanless operation. With Hi-Speed USB 2.0, this efficient external hard drive makes a great companion to your PC or Mac. Setup is nearly effortless; it’s plug & play, offers customizable formatting, and comes with LaCie Backup Assistant and USB Boost.
