All That Glitters Is Gold As LaCie Ships Its Stylistic Golden Disk


Designed exclusively for LaCie by French designer Ora-to
A unique golden storage solution to house precious data
500GB of capacity under a glitter wave

PORTLAND, OR (September 2007) LaCie today announced the Golden Disk, a newly designed device created by famed industrial designer Ora-to. Offering up to 500GB* of storage to house your favorite music, photos or videos, this sleek, liquid-inspired device will become the focal point for any design conscience customer looking to add glitz to their work environment. The Golden disk offers a unique jewel style while the outside finish actually contains a small percentage of real gold.

Sitting almost silent thanks to fanless operation, the Golden Disk can connect to any universal high-speed USB 2.0 interface. Cross-platform compatibility allows the Golden Disk to be used on either a PC or Mac, and plug and play setup works fluidly with Windows 2000, XP, Vista, and Mac OSX.

The Golden drive encompasses all that is glamour while having the guts to perform flawlessly with glowing performance, said Lise Manteau, LaCie Desktop Solutions Product Manager. Coming preloaded with utilities for automatic backups, the Golden Disk shines with its ease-of-use when needing to exchange information with friends and family.

The LaCie Golden Disk will be available late October from LaCie direct and widely available via LaCies specialized dealer network at the suggested retail price starting at $189. For more product information, visit
