The LaCie Starck Desktop Hard Drive is one of two chic hard drives (Desktop Hard Drive, Mobile Hard Drive) released in October 2009. Both units were designed by LaCie and designer Philippe Starck. In particular, the Desktop Hard Drive is more geared towards at-home use, at its heavy design isn’t optimal for portability. Featured is an intelligent touch-sensitive front panel that can be customized to open certain applications depending on whether the user applies a short or lap tap. Also included is a storage capacity up to 20GB, a USB 2.0 interface with a 480Mbits/s data transfer rate, and a bevy of built-in software applications like Intego Backup.
