LaCie is a big name when it comes to external storage devices. The products that the company offers tend to put as much emphasis on how the drives look as how well they perform. There is nothing wrong with that, it's great to have a drive that looks good and performs good too. LaCie has unveiled a pair of new and good looking USB 3.0 drives today.




The new drives are the Minimus and the Rikki. Both of the drives connect to USB 3.0 ports and offer data transfer speeds up to 5Gb/s. Both of the drives are also enclosed in an attractive brushed aluminum chassis. That chassis not only looks good but helps the drives dissipate heat and is recyclable.


The storage products will work with Mac or PC systems, though a reformat may be required. LaCie also includes 10GB of online storage space for buyers. The Rikki comes in 500GB capacity and sells for $99.99 and the Minimus is a 1TB HDD and sells for $129.99. Both of the external storage devices are available to order now.
