    LaCie Adds Some Polish To Its NAS Units With “NAS OS”

    Backing up data is getting more and more important, since although much of our critical stuff is in the cloud, we’re all generating so many pictures, videos, documents and so on that it’s wise to keep a local copy. Many people use external drives to back up, which is fine, but if you want any automated stuff, or server capabilities, you have to update to a network-attached… Read More

    LaCie’s Rugged Mini External Hard Drive Is Not Large

    Let’s say you’re LaCie, manufacturer par excellence of mid-to-high-end external hard drives. Are you LaCie now? Good. And let’s say you’ve put out a Rugged hard drive and a Rugged XL hard drive. Where do you go next? XXL? Extra-regular size? No, no, you put on your robe and marketing hat and, because you now know people like small things, you decide to make the Rugged Mini. Read More

    Lacie's Wuala Online Storage Gets An iPhone App

    Lacie’s Wuala online storage site offers users a great way to securely save and share encrypted files. Today, they announced an iPhone app to take advantage of the service on-the-go. The app allows users to access and share files with others right on the iDevice. Wuala encrypts and decrypts on the client side so none of the private data can ever be accessed by Wuala. They won’t… Read More

  • LaCie Is The First With A Thunderbolt-Equipped External Drive

    LaCie Is The First With A Thunderbolt-Equipped External Drive

    Following the Thunderbolt-centered Intel and Apple announcements, we fully expect that the accessory makers will be coming in droves to support the new protocol. LaCie was among the early adopters of USB 3.0 when that was new, and so it’s no surprise that they’re in the front line with supporting Thunderbolt. Their first entry is this Little Big Disk, featuring the new connector… Read More

  • Can You Spot The Lacie Galet USB Drive In This Picture?

    Can You Spot The Lacie Galet USB Drive In This Picture?

    Hint: it is not the cufflinks, but it is near them. Yes, that thing. Lacie is making forays into the world of fashion, if we are to take their word for it, and the Galet is their first entry. “Hand-crafted in France, each piece is individually plated with precious silver through Christofle’s 150 year-old silvering process.” How luxurious! The trouble comes when you have to… Read More

    LaCie's FastKey Does USB 3.0 And 120GB


    The LaCie FastKey is USB 3.0 and comes in 30GB, 60GB, and 120GB capacities. All in a aluminum form factor about the size of a pack of gum. Even with a starting $150 price tag, it’s still more fantastic than a couple of beers and microwaved s’mores. Read More

    The LaCie Stark Mobile 500GB USB 3.0 Hard Drive Gives A Lesson In Style, Mobility

    External hard drives do not have to be stale and fake. They can look just as good as they perform and the latest from LaCie fits the profile nicely. The LaCie Starck Mobile USB 3.0 seems at first like every other external on the market, but then slowly you start to appricate the less is more design. It’s sexy. Read More

    LaCie Intros The 24-inch 324i IPS Display Aimed For Creative Types, Rich Kids

This 1920 x 1200 10-bit IPS bad boy offers a huge color gamut of 102 percent NTSC, 98 percent Adobe RGB along with a 178-degree viewing angle and an anti-glare coating.

  • The LaCie Wireless Space Is A Glorious Mash-up Of A NAS And Wireless Router

    The LaCie Wireless Space Is A Glorious Mash-up Of A NAS And Wireless Router

    Network-attached backup devices are sold at Walmart these days so excuse me if I don’t get that excited about the space anymore. They’re everywhere and for the most part, that’s a good thing as people really should be backing up their files somewhere. The latest from LaCie however, merges the NAS backup device with a wireless router in a fashion similar to Apple’s… Read More

    True To Form, LaCie Releases Two New USB 3.0 Drives

    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. Read More

    LaCie's MosKeyto Is About As Small As USB Keys Can Get

    Looking for a very, very small USB drive? Well, LaCie has got you covered. The new MosKeyto is about as small as I can picture these things getting. It comes with a little cap and a way to attach it to a keyring, but other than that it’s just your standard tiny USB 2.0 drive. It comes in 4GB ($18), 8GB ($28), and (soon) 16GB ($38 maybe?) flavors and also includes online storage at Wuala… Read More

  • LaCie Rikiki Go Drive Is Both Rugged And Metal

    LaCie Rikiki Go Drive Is Both Rugged And Metal

    LaCie announced the latest in their line of external drives today, the Rikiki Go. Apparently, a Rikiki is a small monkey with a mohawk, as seen in the product documentation on the LaCie website. Regardless of strange marketing tactics, the latest drive has a brushed aluminium enclosure, and integrated USB cable, and comes with automated backup software included with the drive. The Rikiki comes… Read More

  • LaCie's Xtremkey is probably the ruggedest USB key of them all

    LaCie's Xtremkey is probably the ruggedest USB key of them all

    For probably two years now I’ve been using a Corsair Survivor thumbdrive, a reliable little guy that’s more or less waterproof and crushproof. I think it’s pretty tough, and whenever I have serious backup to do under 32GB, I’m sure to use it. Well, loyal as it’s been, it may have just been supplanted by the latest in the “key” series from… Read More

  • LaCie's Rugged Safe external hard drive is both rugged and safe

    LaCie's Rugged Safe external hard drive is both rugged and safe

    LaCie wants to ensure that your data is safe. Like really safe. The company took its Rugged hard drive line, added a fingerprint scanner and 128-bit AES encryption and in turn, made what might be the Mad Max of hard drives. Read More

    LaCie's new net-connected RAID external is featureless and black, like my soul

    Luxury storage masters LaCie have introduced a new drive (well, drives) intended for maximum data protection and connectivity. Inside that forbidding black box are two hard drives, and every bit that’s written to one is written to the other in true RAID 1 fashion. It has built-in server and torrent download functions, which could be nice, and if it’s connected to your router… Read More

    LaCie's Rugged line of external HDDs just got USB 3.0'd


    Few people even have USB 3.0 ports on their PCs at the moment, but that shouldn’t stop peripheral-makers from preparing for the demand. Let’s be honest: as cool as Light Peak sounds, it’s really not going to sucker-punch USB 3.0, which is already well on its way to being a standard. So I’m perfectly happy to report that LaCie is upgrading its Rugged line of hard drives… Read More

  • Lacie adds eSATA to its rugged line of external drives

    Lacie adds eSATA to its rugged line of external drives


    See? That’s all. I reviewed the Rugged XL a little while back and my opinion is unchanged (a little expensive but probably worth it for peace of mind), but now you can mentally add “eSATA support” to the feature list. Read More

    If you have any doubt that USB 3.0 is a big step forward in data transfer, check out the new LaCie 2Big RAID drive. This puppy can see throughput speeds of 275 MB/s. Let me say it for you, daaaamn. Now all you need is a USB 3.0 motherboard or PCI-E card. Good thing both are now available. Read More
