800GB Ethernet Disk

LaCie today introduced its 800GB capacity , allowing up to 25 users to instantly store and backup data across a network simultaneously. Administers can fully customize user access controls from any computer on the network using a web administration tool and files can be accessed via HTTP or FTP on Macs or PCs (using the built-in Windows XP Embedded software). The "sturdy and slender" d2 19-inch casing can be mounted in standard rack and supports monitors weighing as much as 40 pounds. Additional space can be added to the LaCie Ethernet Disk by daisy-chaining LaCie hard drives via the USB or FireWire port. It is available in 160GB ($600), 250GB ($800), 500GB ($1000), and 800GB ($1,500) models. The drives ship with silicon feet and bracket covers for standalone use, as well as power and Ethernet cables.

LaCie also announced a new line of external hard drives: its d2 Serial ATA external hard drive offers transfer rates of up to 1.5Gbps using an 8MB buffer and high-speed drive mechanisms. They are bundled with the LaCie Serial ATA (SATA) PCI Card, a SATA PCI-HOST adapter, and power supply. The new drives are expected to this winter in 160GB ($270), 250GB ($340), and a 400GB ($550). A high-speed 74GB version using a 10,000 rpm drive is expected to be available for $450. (Site not updated.)
