The Ultimate Blend of Design and Performance

The LaCie Porsche Design P'9220 mobile hard drive is more than just a place to store your files-it's a collaboration between one of the most renowned design firms in the world and LaCie. With the P'9220, we've combined speed, design, and technology to result in a different breed of mobile drive.

Porsche Design Form, LaCie Function

LaCie first partnered 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 and 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.

Accelerate Your Backup with USB 3.0

With the P'9220's USB 3.0 interface, you'll be able to transfer files faster than ever before-a 700MB video file in just under 7 seconds! You can back up your photos, exchange audio and video files with your friends, or make sure that your important files are kept safe. With the speed of USB 3.0, the possibilities are endless. And with capacities up to 1TB, you've got the storage capacity to hold all of your files.

Safe, Strong, and Aluminum

Safe, Strong, and Aluminum Porsche Design is known worldwide for their sophisticated, timeless creations, and the P'9220 is no exception. With 3mm of strong aluminum casing surrounding the drive inside, you can be sure that your data is solidly protected. LaCie and Porsche Design worked together to combine form and function-resulting in a mobile drive that looks great (and works great)-no matter where you take it.

Sturdy, high capacity drive
Reviewed by Alannah. Review Posted 27/09/2011

An excellent drive, reliable and with excellent build quality. 500GB is more than enough for all my files, backup and music. The aluminum enclosure is well designed: it's solid and helps eliminate the heat too. The drive is always with me. It has survived lots of miles in my backpack while I'm riding my bike. And it just works flawlessly!

I bought this drive about half a year ago. It's fast, easy to carry around, and very durable. I use it every day for backup, and it's great for that purpose. Very handy.

Great product!
Reviewed by Mayra. Review Posted 30/08/2012

I've had an external drive connected to my laptop before and found that continual access to the drive would drain my battery life far too quickly. Now that I have this Porsche drive, I can set the power saving mode and extend the life of the drive and my laptop battery.

Excellent Product
Reviewed by Ella. Review Posted 15/12/2012

I've recently bought this drive and I'm very pleased with it. The solid aluminium casing helps it remain cool and it's very quiet. I've set it up to automatically power down when I know I won't be using my computer so hopefully it'll help prolong the life of the drive.

This drive is great to use, and smooth to handle. I bought it in first place because of its design. It's very nice and well thought out. The speeds are great. The drive is quiet. And it's even easy on the battery of your laptop with the Eco mode.

Reviewed by Brayden. Review Posted 06/11/2012

I'm a junior designer and I just started working at a creative agency. I use this drive to carry my work around and to transfer stuff between computers. It's been a bit of a lifesaver because the network at work is not very fast. It's an excellent drive, love it!
