Slim is in…hasn’t that been the motto of runway models for the past 20 years.Â I guess you can say the same for tech gadgets, laptops and of course storage peripherals.
LaCie introduces the Porsche Designed ultra slim 120GB SSD hard drive.
The $149.99 Slim Drive P9223 by LaCie, powered by none other than USB 3.0, follows the same minimalist design set by Porsche Design. It has a thickness of a mere 11mm; this makes it a great compliment to a 17mm slim MacBook. It’s chassis is made of solid aluminum which doubles as a heat sink for fast dissipation of any heat build up from the NAND chips.
The LaCie Porsche SSD can top a transfer speed of 400/MBs.Â But it’s not a walk in the park to get that data transfer rate.Â You need to have a computer which supports the USB Attached SCSI [UAS] protocol.Â This is a protocol which overcomes the aging bulk-only transport method which has been around since USB 1.0.
