LaCie launches two ranges of hard drives with capacities ranging from 1 to 5 TB, Mobile Drive and Mobile Drive Secure. As always or almost (in any case for 30 years now), it was Neil Poulton who gave the pencil stroke for the design of these aluminum and plastic cases.
All these supports are equipped with a USB-C port (130 MB/s). Series Mobile Drive offers capacities of 1 TB (90 €), 2 TB (120 €), 4 TB (175 €) and 5 TB (200 €). These capacities were already on the agenda of the previous range dressed in another case look.
As for the family Mobile Drive Secureit adds a possibility of hardware encryption of the contents of the volume. You will need to use the Toolkit app to enable additional security settings and set the password. On Apple Silicon Macs, however, this involves switch to Reduced Security mode for the system, since macOS by default prevents the installation of kernel extensions from third parties.
Apple Silicon: a more secure boot, but no less flexible
This second range of hard drives is available in three capacities of 2 TB, 4 TB and 5 TB. The prices in euros have not yet been given, but they are supposed to be similar if not identical to those of the classic range (c’ is the case for prices in advertised dollars).
