Cloud this, cloud that. These days, it's either about tablets or clouds, or both! LaCie has a new external hard drive on offer, but the 100GB box isn't your average drive. It's actually fairly small in size, but what it lacks locally it makes up for on the cloud. Basically, it keeps one copy of your computer back-up on the drive. And then it also sends that copy to LaCie's storage servers elsewhere, ensuring that you'll have a copy even if something awful were to happen to the unit itself. This isn't a new concept. People have been able to buy their own external drive for years and just pipe it... Read more...
Is big ever really big enough? Not in our world! LaCie knows that as well as anyone, and that's why they're announcing the 5big Storage Server in a new, expanded model. The company's pro-level sharing appliance is now offered in a 1TB model for user expandability, and you can order one with up to 10TB of expandable capacity. You'll also get Windows Storage Server software and a sleek, compact aluminum enclosure, support for PC and Mac clients, and a dual-core Intel 1.6GHz processor inside. The unit starts at $1199, and promises transfer rates as high as 180MB/sec. It'll handle RAID 0, 1, 5,or 5+... Read more...
As if it weren't clear enough, cloud storage is a blossoming segment. As the Internet finds more and more homes (and mobile devices), storing things on a remote server is becoming a more viable option. LaCie has recently gotten in on the action, with the company's Wuala Online Storage platform. This week, that platform is expanding out to a logical place: the iPhone and iPod touch. The company's new iOS app allows users to access files that are stored in faraway servers, so long as there's an Internet connection. Aimed at users who demand secure mobile applications, the Wuala iPhone app encrypts... Read more...
Intel's Thunderbolt has the chance to be the break-out technology of 2011, but only if you have support. But support is growing. The kickstart came when Apple decided to add the Thunderbolt to their line of new MacBook Pro machines, despite the fact that no actual hardware is available now to truly support it. But that will change soon. LaCie already announced that they would soon be producing products to support the higher speed I/O port, and now it feels like Canon may follow suit. Maybe. Intel has apparently seen enough interest from Canon that the company is suggesting a "signal" of support.... Read more...
And just like that, Apple's Thunderbolt I/O port has some company. LaCie, which has obviously been a big-time proponent of supporting Apple interface options. They've had FireWire ports on their devices for as long as we can remember, and now they're one of the first companies out of the gate to vouch for Apple's newest connector. Well, Intel's connector, but Apple's using it. The next-generation Little Big Disk will feature high-speed Thunderbolt technology, and as Apple brings that connector to more and more Macs, it'll become more and more essential for A/V professionals. Thunderbolt's capable... Read more...
LaCie has always been a company obsessed with style, and so this newest partnership isn't too surprising. The storage company has teamed with Christofle to introduce one of the fanciest USB flash drives we've ever seen. It's a circular device that snaps in two, with the Galet being pebble-shaped and plated in silver. It's definitely not for those who need a bargain drive, but if you're a fashionista, why not? It's marketed as a beautiful tech accessory, as it's hand-crafted in France and plated with real silver. It's carefully inspected for a smooth finish before being shipped, and it's hand-packed...

On thing that could bother some netbook buyers is the lack of an internal hard drive. Even Apple's MacBook Air line lacks them. Many machines are shipping these days without an optical drive, partly because more and more things are streaming and partly because it's a cost/space savings. But sometimes, there's just no good alternative for having an optical drive on hand. LaCie's new Slim Blu-ray is meant to be your go-to drive in those situations. This new USB 2.0 Blu-ray burner is sleek and slim, meant to fit in your laptop carry-on and be accessible for those times when you need to burn or watch... Read more...
LaCie is no stranger to making products that can take a beating. Not only are the company's drives stylish, some of them are about as rugged as they come. But now LaCie is creating something that lets you choose what's inside. The Tank, which definitely has a simple name, has a pretty simple purpose as well. It's designed as a rugged, rain-proof case that can hold anything from a 2.5" hard drive to a Nintendo DSi. The unit ships with internal padding that can be rearranged based on what you're trying to protect, and it's IP-63 certified to protect against dust and pouring rain. There's also military-grade...

USB 3.0 may not the total buzz of 2010 (that goes to tablets!), but it's definitely the peripheral highlight of the year. USB hasn't seen a major innovation in awhile prior to USB 3.0, and the speed increases are rather extreme, not to mention the backwards compatibility. Thus, it's not surprising to see major storage players like LaCie jump at the chance to inflate their USB 3.0 inventory. The company has released a number of USB 3.0 hard drives to date, and now there's a USB hub to work with them. The new LaCkie Hub4 USB 3.0 provides four USB 3.0 ports for your PC, and of course it's fully USB... Read more...
And LaCie does it again. The company has been well known for producing the most stylish storage options the industry has to offer, and yet again LaCie has meshed style and speed together into one compact package. The new LaCie FastKey is a new breed of flash drive. Rather than using the traditional flash memory, LaCie has relied on internal SSD storage to provide a lightning quick offering. It's basically solid state memory on a USB key, and the unit itself is made of metal in order to maintain rigidity. It will be available in 30GB, 60GB and 120GB options, all of which will include 4GB of online... Read more...
LaCie announced a major update to its line of hard drives with the LaCie Starck Mobile USB 3.0. With the announcement, LaCie is combining the speed of USB 3.0 with the design of Philippe Starck. The drive is encased in 2mm of sturdy aluminum, making it resistant to the everyday bumps of life and improving the heat dissipation. The LaCie Starck Mobile USB 3.0 comes with LaCie Setup Assistant software as well as LaCie Backup Assistant. The drive also comes with one year of online storage via Wuala Online Storage.  The LaCie Starck Mobile USB 3.0 will be available in a 500GB capacity. LaCie Brings... Read more...
USB 3.0 has been out for awhile now. Loads of notebooks and desktops are shipping each day with USB 3.0 support, and while we still wish that each and every PC would make the jump to 3.0, at least progress is being made. But there's one qualifier there: the only USB 3.0 machines shipping are Windows-based PCs. In other words, no Mac is supporting USB 3.0 today, even the newest MacBook Air machines. Apple has shown no interest in jumping on the USB 3.0 bandwagon, but that doesn't mean that Mac users are in agreement. Creative professionals who transfer lots of data to external drives definitely... Read more...
LaCie announced the addition of 3TB hard drive capacity options to its LaCie d2 USB 3.0 and LaCie 2big USB 3.0. With this announcement, LaCie’s 2big USB 3.0 is now available with 6TB of total storage. Because the storage solution uses USB 3.0, it also gets a boost in speed—it's capable of reaching 306MB/s. The d2 USB 3.0 also gets a speed boost thanks to USB 3.0. This drive achieves 156MB/s with the inclusion of a 3TB hard drive. LaCie 2Big USB 3.0 Breaks 300MB/s Barrier with 3TB Hard Drives Today, LaCie demonstrates technology leadership with the availability of 3TB hard drives and... Read more...
When you think of LaCie, you probably first think of the high-fashion storage devices that they are most commonly known for. But Photokina, which is a show based around photography, isn't exactly the best place to launch a hard drive. So, what's new from LaCie then? An LCD monitor, one that's designed for professional video/still employees who need the absolute best monitor to edit on. The new 24" 324i is a pro LCD with a 10-bit P-IPS panel and an anti-glare screen, both of which are designed to show true colors and help creative professionals fight less with printing companies due to colors not...
