LaCie has introduced a small external hard drive called Rikiki which has a 2.5in disk drive inside.

LaCie Rikiki external drive

Rikiki means tiny or small in French and this little product in its brushed aluminium case measures 109.7 x 75 x 13.4mm. It's a plain rectangular box with a USB 2.0 port and an activity light. The capacity points are 250GB, 500GB and 640GB and the prices, excluding VAT, are $75, $110 and $50, respectively.

The Rikiki drive has a two-year warranty and comes with LaCie USB Boost software to bump up Windows USB transfers by up to 33 per cent, it's claimed. Backup Assistant software is bundled too.

Choosing small external hard drives is becoming a style choice, with glossy primary coloured cases and severe black ones. LaCie's PR material says the Rikiki "represents a resilient aesthetic"... ahem... ®
