LaCie ups drive capacities

LaCie today announced that it has increased the capacity of its All-Terrain Hard Disk as well as its 2.5-inch Little Disk (shown at right) to 320GB. The full-size external drives, designed by Neil Poulton and Sam Hecht, are designed to make backing up and transferring data easy. Simple plug and play allows the drives to interact smoothly with any laptop or desktop computer''s USB or FireWire port to add increased mobile storage for all-types of digital media. Both the 320GB All-Terrain Hard Disk and 2.5-inch Little Disk (both start from $200) are slated for shipment in late January.

Without the need for an additional AC adapter, the Rugged and the 2.5-inch Little Disk offer the largest capacities available for any single-disk portable drive, according to LaCie.

"People have a tendency nowadays to travel more and need extra space to store and share their data. Just a few years ago, maximum capacity for a standard 2.5-inch mobile hard drive was just 80GB," said Nolwenn Rozen, LaCie mobile product manager. "Today LaCie is capable of reaching capacity four times greater than what was once available. By increasing the capacity of our most popular products, LaCie continues to be on the forefront in providing the latest technologies and capacities to our customers."

    SATA or IDE

    Does anyone known if Lacie is using SATA or IDE hard drives inside the triple interface rugged enclosures?

    Re: sata or ide

    They won't tell you, and even if someone else breaks open their box to find out, it doesn't mean that's what it will be. LaCie would argue that the only thing they're selling is the external, you shouldn't care or need to know what's inside.

    This also allows them to change with the times without having to change documentation, model numbers, etc. They could switch out from IDE to SATA if the prices fall, or back if there's supply issues.
