First of all let us have a look at what is USB-C:

A hot and new industry standard connector and cable that is used for connectivity and power is called as USB-C. The USB Implementers Forum has developed the USB-C connector, and it is the group of companies that has developed, certified, and shepherded the USB standard. Including Dell, Apple, Microsoft, HP and Samsung, it has a membership of over 700 companies.

LaCie and its parent company Seagate are adding more devices for the storage enthusiasts to their teeming stable, including an annual object of desire as well as Porsche Design drives. The external hard drive of the Seagate Backup Plus Ultra Slim is a 9.6mm thick and will fit easily into the back pocket. Its capacity will be 1TB and 2TB in either gold or silver.

The Chrome is the flashy addition to LaCie’s lineup. The design is done by Neil Poulton and it looks like a shiny rectangular block that emerges from its dome-shaped base.
