desk space, while an optional rack-mounting kit enables
versatile configuration in standard 19-inch racks. This drive’s
convenient, automatic on/off feature conserves energy and
prolongs the life of the drive. Stackable to allow for a uniform
look, the LaCie Big Disk in the d2 design is also compatible
with Kensington-type locks for added security, at home or away.
