Sam Hecht-designed DVD±RW

LaCie has announced a new line of products with industrial design by Sam Hecht. The new Portable DVD±RW Drive with LightScribe has no feet, switches, or breaks and is less than one inch tall, and one pound in weight. It can use FireWire or USB 2.0, and is fully bus-powered. The USB 2.0 version comes bundled with Easy Media Creator Suite 9 for Windows, while the FireWire version comes with Toast 8 Titanium for Mac OS X. The drive is equipped with LightScribe, which allows users to burn silkscreen-quality labels directly onto CDs and DVDs with a laser instead of a printer. The device is priced at $100 in USB 2.0 and $150 in FireWire flavor.

The new LittleDisk features a high-gloss shine, and a removable interface cover with storage from 30 to 250GB. It has an extractable USB cable, and two FireWire ports on the 2.5-inch combo drive version. There is also a shortcut button located on the 2.5-inch combo version facilitates automatic backup and synchronization, or can be programmed to open a specific application. The LaCie Little Disk 1.8-inch and 2.5-inch USB 2.0 drives are available now. The 2.5-inch Combo will be available in October. Suggested retail prices start at $100 for the 1.8-inch, $90 for the 2.5-inch USB 2.0 and $120 for the 2.5-inch Combo.

    Never again

    I will never ever buy a Lacie product again after their update bricked my Posrche DVD burner. It was a couple month out of warranty and they would not cover it.

    Quit with Them

    A long time ago. Everything they talked me into went bad.

    I have to say I've had many, many problems with LaCie devices.

    But, their customer service is great and have always replaced defective devices even several times per device.
