LaCie has released two new lines of portable hard drives with a brand-new design by Neil Poulton, a lot of storage space, and compatibility with all devices. Both the LaCie Mobile Drive and the LaCie Mobile Drive Secure have strong aluminum and plastic shell made from recycled materials. The cardboard packaging is also made from recycled materials.

The drives have up to 5 terabytes of storage, which is enough for a lot of 4K or even 8K content, and they are formatted to work with PC, Mac, and iPad USB-C right out of the box. With the USB 3.2 Gen 1 interface and Type-C connectivity, you can transfer files at up to 130MB/s with just one click. That’s not quite as fast as what the best portable SSDs can do now, but it’s fast enough to make good progress when backing up.

LaCie Mobile Drives come with a one-month Adobe Creative Cloud All Apps plan and LaCie Toolkit software for on-demand and scheduled backups. A three-year limited warranty and a three-year subscription to Rescue Data Recovery Services give you more peace of mind in case you lose data and have to pay to get it back.

LaCie Mobile Drive Secure is different from LaCie Mobile Drive because it has extra hardware encryption and a lock/unlock feature in the LaCie Toolkit software. This gives sensitive data an extra layer of security.

Lacie Mobile Drive Secure will be on sale later in September, but only Apple customers will be able to buy it until November. The 2TB version will cost $99.99, the 4TB version will be $144.99, and the 16GB version will cost $164.99. (5TB).

The 1TB LaCie Mobile Drive will cost $74.99, and the 2TB, 4TB, and 16TB models will cost the same as their Secure counterparts: $99.99, $144.99, and $164.99, respectively (5TB).
