LaCie releases external hard drive with eSATA

A new triple interface Hard Disk, Design by Neil Poulton.

LaCie has put another Triple Interface external hard drive on the market today, and although it looks very similar to the rest of their line (Neil Poulton also designed this one), there's one striking difference: they've included an eSATA port in addition to Firewire 400 and USB 2.0.

External Serial Advanced Technology Attachment eliminates the need to translate data between the computer and the storage drive which speeds up the process to almost triple the speed of Firewire 400 and USB 2.0. We're hoping it'll usher in a new era of hard drives featuring this faster bus interface.

The drive is available now in 500GB, 750GB, and 1TB capacities.
