Just a few days ago, the USB-IF proclaimed that 100 devices had been certified for use with USB 3.0. Now it looks like they won't have long before reaching their next milestone. LaCie, a leader in the storage industry with a knack for designing stylish drives that look quite a bit better than anything else in the sector, has just introduced two new products that incorporate the fastest version of USB. The first is the 2big USB 3.0, which a twin drive device that holds two 7200RPM hard drives and offers users the security of RAID with up to 4TB of space. It uses the company's familiar matte silver... Read more...
Small is good. Fast is good. Small and fast is better. That's what LaCie is offering with their newest hard drives, which are being listed as the world's smallest mobile (and desktop) USB 3.0 hard drives on the market. The new Minimus and LaCie Rikiki USB 3.0 both connect at far faster speeds than traditional USB 2.0 units, and they're both amongst the smallest in their class. Both drives are wrapped in brushed aluminum cases, and both ship with the company's Software Suite in order to setup backups on Mac or PC. The pair also ships with 10GB of Wuala Online Storage for times when you need to remotely... Read more...
Size matters, does it not? And when you're talking about storage capacity, you want that size to be large. When you're talking about the size of your electronics, particularly portable ones, you want that size to be small. LaCie has delivered on both fronts with their new MosKeyto Flash Drive, a cleverly named device that represents one of the smallest USB drives the world has ever seen. The company calls this "a new breed" of USB key, as this one will have to be kept on your key ring if you hope to ever keep track of it. It measures less than 20mm and weighs 10 grams, and it's made in capacities... Read more...
If you need network storage, LaCie has a solution. And it's a solution that looks better than nearly any alternative we can think of. The new LaCie 5big Storage Server is joining the company's family of professional server solutions, with room for up to 10TB of storage and support for Mac, Windows and Linux workstations. The company has custom built these boxes to perform well under high loads, with a 64-bit dual-core Atom 1.6GHz CPU inside, 2GB of RAM and Windows Storage Server 2008 Standard Edition. In other words, this isn't your mother's NAS. It supports all necessary file sharing formats –... Read more...
The world's most adventurous USB flash drive? That's a fairly bold claim to make, particularly when you're a finesse company like LaCie. We have seen quite a few rugged flash drives grace our pages, but the company that is generally known for producing the best looking storage products is now looking to produce the best looking and toughest USB flash drive. Can there really be a product with the best of both worlds? The LaCie XtremKey actually is pretty extreme, with versions available that hold up to 64GB of storage inside an enclosure that's made to withstand the elements. It uses a premium flash...

Ah, there we go. LaCie is one the big innovators in the hard drive space, which is an area where few companies go out of their way to add style and design to otherwise bland storage solutions. So we figured it was just a matter of time before the company matched offerings by rivals and added USB 3.0 across the board. We're still waiting for the "across the board" part, but at least one of the company's new drives are adding support for the latest generation of USB. The new LaCie Rugged USB 3.0 looks exactly like the older version, with an iconic orange rubber housing protecting it from bumps and... Read more...
One look, and you know it's a LaCie. The iconic storage brand has just introduced their newest lineup of desktop Network Storage solutions, aimed at small-to-medium sized business but perfect for the prosumer at home, too. These don't look any different from the outside than LaCie's prior NAS offerings, but it's what is inside that counts. And what's inside is more power.Three new drives are seeing updates today: the LaCie d2 Network 2 (single disk), LaCie 2big Network 2 (two disks) and LaCie 5big Network 2 (five disks).These pro units promise 70MB/sec on the data access front, and they also include...

If you've been getting used using USB 2.0, and you have no intentions of ever upgrading, LaCie may have the thing to sway you against your better wishes. The storage company has today introduced an expansion to their "Rugged" family, as the Rugged eSATA slips in to provide users faster transfer rates than they're used to while also freeing up a USB port for some other duty.The Rugged drive isn't changed in design (well, aside from that different looking port), but now with the Power eSATA connector, users can expect speeds up to 90MB/s in a mobile, portable form factor - without compromising bus...

If Apple holds the crown for best looking laptops, we're pretty confident LaCie holds the crown for best looking hard drives. The company made famous for taking standard storage drives and converting them into objects of desire has just pushed out their latest device, and yes, it's a looker. The LaCie Rikiki is a real tongue-twister, and furthermore, it's one of the smallest HDDs that have ever been announced by the outfit.LaCie claims that this is the tiniest 2.5" HDD on the market, measuring just 110cm thick and designed to hold up to 640GB of data. It's wrapped in brushed aluminum and uses the... Read more...
iSCSI used to be a term that was infrequently uttered in the storage community at large, but more and more it's being talked about alongside the traditional NAS. Drobo recently released a professional drive of its own that utilized iSCSI, and now LaCie is doing likewise with its all-new 12big Rack Network. As with all LaCie products, this one also looks pretty fantastic--even though it's likely to be hidden behind closed doors within an air conditioned server room for the better part of its useful life. The device definitely isn't geared towards your average consumer. It's a 19", 2U-sized device... Read more...
If Apple is the king of design in the laptop world, LaCie is far atop the hard drive world. Without exception, this company produces the most glamorous and gorgeous HDDs we've ever seen, and it's probably the only HDD company that actually makes you think that their products are desirable. It's amazing what good design can do, right? After all, the HDDs within the enclosures are the same as any--it's the exterior that makes this firm so special.The Network Space 2 is the latest good-looker to emerge, with a sleek black design crafted by Neil Poulton and all the promise of a NAS. It's been far too... Read more...
For the longest time, LaCie has looked to Neil Poulton to provide design inspiration for the company's stylish line of hard drives, external media burners and USB drives. Now, the company is branching its design efforts out once more thanks to a partnership with Philippe Starck. It's tough to say why snazzy storage is attractive; after all, it's just a hard drive/DVD burner. But there's no denying that a LaCie product looks good, and if you're going to have something sitting atop your IKEA desk, it might as well fit the part. Announced today, the LaCie Starck Desktop Hard Drive is a bold, brawny... Read more...
