[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Hi, everyone, this is [inaudible] for CNET.com and I have with me today the two big dual external hard drive from LACIE. I'm not sure if this is big but it's very heavy, it's probably the heaviest two byte external hard drive I've ever run into. This is because the drive is made entirely out of thick aluminum that works both as the chassis and the heat sync. There's no fan and this is the only way to keep the internal hard drives cool. It actually works really well because the drive did stay cool during our tests. On the front the drive feature a huge blue button that works both as a power switch and the starter light. On the back you will find the drive bays and its connection ports. The two big dual supports two SID hard drives, these hard drives can be easily removed or replaced. The internal hard drives can be set up in six different red bays configuration, three of them are Red Zero, Red One and [inaudible] while the other three are sort of non-standard. Nonetheless, you can pick the setup you want to use very easily by changing the switch at the back of the drive. This, of course, is a one-time change as by doing so you will lose all the data. The drive comes with two connection options including USB 2.0 and ESATA. During our test, the USB 2.0 connection register about 170 megabit per second and the ESATA about 450 megabit per second. Both are actually very good among external hard drives we have tested. The LACIE two big dual comes in three versions, 1 terabyte, 1.5 terabyte and 2.0 terabyte that goes $320, $400 and $530 respectively. All these versions come with three-year warranty and EMC retrospect express backup software for both PC and Macs. For more information on this drive, check back at CNET.com for the in depth review of the product. Once again my name is [inaudible] and this has been the first look at the LACIE 2 byte dual external hard drive. ^M00:01:55 [ Music ]
