The Minimus is the world's smallest USB 3.0 desktop drive
With the LaCie Minimus, you've got the power and performance of USB 3.0 combined with a smaller size. Compared to other desktop drives, it's the smallest on the market, which makes it the perfect choice for users that enjoy their terabytes as much as their desk space.
Ultra-Fast USB 3.0 Performance
It's easy to transfer HD movies, photos, and sound files with USB 3.0 -- at speeds faster than you ever imagined. Since the LaCie Minimus is backward compatible with USB 2.0, it works on any PC or Mac.
Strong Aluminum Exterior
Complementing its remarkably small size, the Minimus is encased in sturdy brushed aluminum for an elegant aesthetic appeal. The aluminum offers resilience from blunders, improved heat dissipation, and is fully recyclable.
LaCie Software Suite for PC and Mac
Designed to be intuitive and user-friendly, the Minimus comes with LaCie's Software Suite to ensure seamless setup and backup support for Mac or PC. Additionally, the Minimus comes with a free 1-year subscription for 10GB of Wuala online storage, so you can securely store and share files online.
