Product overview



Standard Due date unavailable

The LaCie Porsche Design P'9230 is a breed of desktop hard drive, a perfect blend of form and function. It's the product of collaboration between one of the most renowned design firms in the world and LaCie. The P'9230 lets you transfer files faster than ever with USB 3.0 performance, and has the capacity to hold all of your files. It also features a striking LED that both indicates power and lends sophisticated elegance.

LaCie first joined forces with Porsche design in 2003 to produce one of the most iconic and enduringly popular external hard drives on the market. Since then the two companies have worked closely to create products that blend flawless functionality with pure design. The luxury brand and the leading technology company complement each other, with technical influence from LaCie, together with an exclusive and timeless shape presented by Porsche Design.

With the P'9230's USB 3.0 interface, you'll be able to get the job done faster than you ever imagined-you can transfer a 700 MB video file in just under 7 seconds! With USB 3.0 speed, you can back up your photos, videos, and music files, and even quickly exchange them with friends or colleagues-with minimal wait time.

The P'9230 protects your files with 5 mm of aluminum casing surrounding the drive inside. This solid armor protects your data, gives the drive sophisticated substance, and even helps to dissipate heat. These properties help to protect the hard disk and prolong its lifespan. LaCie and Porsche design worked together to combine form and function-resulting in a desktop hard drive that looks great on your desk.

5* This drive is great!
Reviewed by Thierry on 15/06/2012
I bought this to do backups with my PC running Windows 7, and I love it! The drive works seamlessly and looks amazing, it has a nice dark grey color and a very solid aluminum casing. It's very fast, easy to use and quiet. There is plenty of storage space. Highly recommend it to anyone!
5* Fast and sturdy
Reviewed by Brea on 14/08/2012
I bought this drive because the plastic enclosure of my old drive broke into pieces when it accidentally fell off my desk. This drive seems sturdy and well made. It weighs more than my old drive, due to the solid aluminum casing. And the built-in rubber feet keep it stable and secure on my desk. Performance is great too.
5* Excellent product
Reviewed by Lyric on 20/12/2012
I got this drive early this year. I use it almost everyday and I have no complaints about it. The speeds are good, loads of space, easy to set up, and silent operation. What else can I ask for? Can't recommend enough!
5* great hard drive
Reviewed by Norah on 22/03/2013
I've been using this drive for almost a year now, and not a single issue. I particularly like the backup software, it's easy to setup and use. The casing is well designed. The USB 3.0 is a nice feature, it makes transferring large files an easy task.
5* Works as expected
Reviewed by Lucian on 04/05/2013
I bought this drive to complement my new laptop, for backups and media storage. I've never used USB 3.0 before, and it's exceeded all my expectations. The design is very stylish. The drive is almost silent, too.
5* Good Drive
Reviewed by Oliver on 23/05/2013
I try to keep regular backups of my work files. A desktop drive solution with automatic backup software works best for me. I've recently upgrade to this drive, as it seemed to fit the bill perfectly. It's fast, quiet, and comes with a good software suite.
5* awesome drive
Reviewed by Reilly Y on 26/08/2013
This is a great drive - simple, efficient, fast and stylish. 3TB storage space and USB 3.0 are a brilliant combo. The backup software the drive came with is easy to use. Love it!
5* Excellent drive
Reviewed by Tyson on 08/12/2012
This is a brilliant drive that does what I need it to do and looks good as well. If I could change one thing, the drive wouldn't need a separate power supply. That aside, it works quickly and the Eco-Mode helps to ensure that the drive is at full power only when needed. Overall, I'd recommend.
5* Great HDD!
Reviewed by Quentin on 28/01/2013
I bought this drive as a replacement for my old desktop drive that broke down. This one looks great and seems to be very well made. The metal casing is beautiful, it keeps the hard drive cool. The drive comes with all the necessary cables and software. It was very easy to setup and it's a pleasure to use.
5* Fast and quiet
Reviewed by Geraldine on 26/02/2013
This is a great drive, reasonably priced too. It's well designed, fast, quiet, and it doesn't take up much space on my desk. It looks and works great. I'd recommend.
