LaCie Porsche Design Mobile Drive

LaCie Porsche Design Mobile Drive

Posted by on 23 May 2016  | No Comments

The LaCie P’9227 is a very stylish and well built mobile hard drive that is coloured gold and appears to be metallic. The drive supports USB 3 and USB-C – I don’t have any USB-C devices so was unable to test this.

The drive comes with two cables – USB-C cable and a USB-C to USB-A cable.lacie setup

Installing the drive in Windows 10 was a breeze using the LaCie Setup Assistant and I soon had a 2TB drive formatted and installed.

I then transferred a large 10gb file to the drive to test drive speed and was able to achieve a respectable 129 MB/s.

Before acquiring the Wacom Intuos4 I had a cheaper Wacom Volito2 which had 512 pressure levels, by contrast the Intuos4 has 2048 levels of pressure and also has tilt sensitivity which is achieved by using EMR (Electro Magnetic Resonance) technology in the Wacom pen. While I quite liked the Volito2 at the same time I found it a bit unnatural to use and it ended up gathering dust by the side of my keyboard.

Initially I had the same issues with the Intuous4, it just felt unnatural and cumbersome to me but I decided to force myself to use it. I’m pleased to say that now it feels much more natural and a joy to use in photoshop – I don’t use it as a mouse replacement (yet) as some do but for fine editing in photoshop – cloning and mask creation, what I love is the pressure sensitivity giving fine control over the size of the the clone/healing tool, making fine editing much easier and more accurate than using a mouse.

The perfect keyboard for Photoshop.


Wired – my old wireless keyboard was just causing me too much grief, maybe I had a defect, but nothing beats a cable for reliability.
Macro buttons – which can be a real godsend for those repetitive tasks, that can be assigned to different profiles that automatically switch depending what program you are currently using.
Backlit keys – which is great in low light conditions.
LCD screen – that can relay a multitude of information with loads of plugins freely available.

It’s a great keyboard that is really meant for gaming but I find it perfect for Photoshop and coding. Some may think it a little pricey for a keyboard but I think at about £50 it’s good value.
