LaCie's new USB 3.0 storage solutions will also benefit from performance enhancements within OS X Lion and Mountain Lion. Thanks to UAS (USB Attached SCSI Protocol), people with the latest Macbook Air, Macbook Pro and Macbook Pro with Retina Display will experience maximum USB 3.0 performance.
"At LaCie we're dedicated to USB 3.0. As a result, we've been able to deliver the widest range of USB 3.0 storage peripherals on the market," said Erwan Girard, Professional Business Unit Manager, LaCie.
