LaCie takes big to the extreme
LaCie unveils its new large capacity desktop hard drive, the LaCie Big Disk Extreme+
LaCie announced yesterday its new Big Disk Extreme+ desktop hard drive, a fairly standard external drive whose standout feature is the massive capacity. It's available in 1-terabyte, 1.5-terabyte, and 2-terabyte capacities, starting at $350 ($850 for the 2TB drive). The design is LaCie's classic Neil Poulton d2 look: brushed gray body with a blue programmable one-touch button mounted on the front. Connection options include two FireWire 800 ports, one FireWire 400 port, and one USB 2.0 port. It comes bundled with LaCie's 1-Click Backup software, Silverkeeper (backup software for Macs), and two versions of EMC Retrospect Express software for Windows and Mac PCs. As usual, LaCie is targeting the drive at video pros who need fast transfer speeds and huge capacities. Check back soon for a review at CNET.com.
