Web Pricing - Why are the prices on this web site different from those in your stores?
Our stores are staffed with a wide variety of product specialists and support staff, each of whom make an effort to be responsive and pleasant to deal with. We're also able to provide a customer with any item from our inventory to inspect and test. The cost of this customer service is an increased overhead for our in-store prices, to pay for the store space, the training of our employees, and other considerations not present online. We're happy to offer reduced prices online and hope that you will be satisfied with your purchase no matter where you decide to buy.
The LaCie 4TB Blade Runner External Hard Drive is more than just a beautifully designed hard drive – it's a creation by world famous designer Philippe Starck that represents the combination of human and machine. The LaCie Blade Runner's sharp, cage-like enclosure surrounds an almost anthropomorphic, liquid metal interior. Inspired by the mysterious, incredible power of information technology, the LaCie Blade Runner combines an anthropomorphic metal interior with an angular cage-like shell. It begs the question; can we truly confine technology to a cage?
The LaCie Blade Runner is as well equipped as it is designed. Its 4TB drive and high-speed USB 3.0 interface* deliver more than enough performance to handle even the most data-intensive tasks. The aluminum casing makes the LaCie Blade Runner one of the most resistant and coolest desktop drives on the market. The radiator design rapidly dissipates heat to help boost performance and ensure long-term reliability. Philippe Starck's signature cross symbol appears as an LED power button on the front of the LaCie Blade Runner—glowing orange when the drive is powered on, or green when the drive is in Eco Mode.
