Clearly the world can never have enough storage… or enough monkeys. LaCie has released two USB 3.0 drives, the Rikki and the Minimus, for small business and personal use. The Rikki, which we’ve covered before, now has USB 3.0 connectivity and apparently goes well with Euros while the Minimus, above, involves a monkey.

Other than the monkey bit, these are bog-standard hard drives in brushed aluminum cases and plenty of speed for grabbing big files. The Rikki starts at $99 while the Miniumus starts at $129.

LaCie debuts today sleek USB 3.0 hard drives for your desktop or pocket – the LaCie Minimus and LaCie Rikiki USB 3.0. Proving size does matter, LaCie delivers the industry’s fastest transfer speeds at 5Gb/s* in its ultra-small Rikiki form factor – perfect for users that refuse to sacrifice performance for mobility; and the LaCie Minimus – for users that enjoy their terabytes as much as desk space.

Complementing their remarkably small sizes, the Rikiki and Minimus hard drives are encased in sturdy brushed aluminum for an elegant aesthetic appeal. The aluminum offers resilience from blunders, improved heat dissipation, and is fully recyclable.

Designed to be simple from the inside out, the Rikiki and Minimus come with LaCie’s Software Suite to ensure seamless setup and backup support for Mac or PC. Additionally, each product comes with 10GB of Wuala online storage so you can securely store and share files online.

“The Minimus and Rikiki USB 3.0 offer our customers easy and affordable options to access the super speeds of USB 3.0,” said Philippe Rault, LaCie Consumer Product Manager. “Since these products offer backward compatibility with USB 2.0, they will work on any PC or Mac with no worry.”

Availability
The LaCie Rikiki USB 3.0 is available in 500GB/1TB capacities starting at $99.99. The LaCie Minimus is available in 1TB/2TB capacities starting at $129.99. Both products are available through the LaCie Online Store, LaCie Corner, and LaCie Reseller+.
