LaCie announces Little Big Disk Quadra
LaCie announced the new Little Big Disk Quadra, a fast mobile disk designed for speed-intensive and capacity-demanding applications such as digital content creation, high-volume data exchange, and video editing – all while on the road.
The Little Big Disk offers quiet operation and superior heat dissipation with an integrated fanless cooling system, and it will be available in 400GB and 500GB versions with either 7200 or 5400 RPM drives, respectively.
Equipped with one eSATA 3Gbits, two FireWire 800, and one USB 2.0 port, the Little Big Disk Quadra is FireWire 400 compatible thanks to an included FireWire 800 to FireWire 400 cable. The device is bus-powered with FireWire 800 for true in-the-field mobility and is bootable with FireWire for Mac OSX or eSATA for Windows. It offers built-in RAID 0 capabilities to reach up to 110MB/s burst transfer rates when using eSATA or up to 80MB/s if using FireWire 800, while also being the quietest drive in its capacity. Weighing in at a little over 1.4 pounds, the sturdy Little Big Disk Quadra is up to 60 percent lighter than conventional desktop drives, enabling it to be a perfect portable companion for audio/video professionals looking for power and comfort.
Fully plug and play with Mac® OS X 10.5 Leopard (including Time Machine) and Windows® Vista®, the Little Big Disk Quadra comes preloaded with the LaCie Setup Assistant, a new utility that optimizes the drive according to your needs (Mac, Windows, or cross-platform environments). The unit comes bundled with advanced backup and restore software EMC Retrospect Express for Mac and Windows. It can also be daisy-chained using one of the two FireWire interfaces with other LaCie hard disks or DVD±RW drives.
The LaCie Little Big Disk Quadra is available now at the suggested retail price starting at $475 (about €322).
