Cables and Connectors

Cable management

USB 3.0

USB is a serial input/output technology for connecting peripheral devices to a computer. SuperSpeed USB 3.0 is the latest implementation of this standard, and it provides higher bandwidth and new power management features.

Transfer rates can attain up to 5 Gbits/s as opposed to USB 2.0’s 480 Mbits/s. This means USB 3.0 is theoretically up to ten times faster than its predecessor.

Your LaCie drive is shipped with a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 cable to ensure maximum data transfer performance when connected to a compatible USB 3.0 port. The cable will also work when connected to a USB 2.0 or 1.1 port, but drive performance will be limited to their respective transfer rates.

FireWire 800

FireWire, also known as IEEE 1394, is a high-speed serial input/output technology for connecting peripheral devices to a computer or to each other, and FireWire 800 is the implementation of the new IEEE 1394b standard.

FireWire 800 offers increased bandwidth and extended distance between devices. FireWire 800 is ideal for bandwidth-intensive applications, such as audio, video and graphics.
