Live From CES: LaCie External SATA II RAID 1TB Enclosure


Posted by Chris Cardinal Categories: CES, CES 2006, Peripherals


LaCie Big TwoThe LaCie “Two Big” [sic] enclosure is pretty fun, and includes two SATA IIe drives in configurations of either 500 GB (total capacity) or 1 terabyte. It’s user-configurable with RAID 0, RAID 1, Big Disks or JBOD. (And, although the configuration is set by a dial in the back that requires a screwdriver to change, it’s not recommended you go shift from RAID 0 to 1 after you’ve put your most precious data on it.) Coming in at $470 and $950 for the 500GB and 1TB sizes, it also includes a PCI-X SATA IIe card that lets you plug in and get going right away. It’s hot-swappable (although I’m guessing only in a few configurations) and thus, easy to boost the capacity when larger drives come out, even if it does weigh the same as a cinder block. (...almost.)
