    Quick Install Guide
  • Comments : *Maximum interface transfer rate = theoretical bus bandwidth, whereas burst transfer rate = maximum drive speed. Performance depends on the RAID mode selected and burst transfer rates vary from one computer to another and may vary slightly from one drive to another. Average speed is usually lower depending on host configuration.
    **1TB (Terabyte) = 1000GB. 1GB = 1,000,000,000 bytes. Total accessible capacity varies depending upon operating environment (typically 5-10% less). Capacity varies depending upon RAID mode.
    ***Hot-swapping is not supported by RAID 0 and concatenation modes.
    ****The LaCie Shortcut Button feature is available via FireWire and USB but not eSATA.
    Windows Vista Ultimate 64 is not compatible with LaCie Shortcut button.
