LaCie intros aluminium-clad USB 3.0 drives

Superspeed storage

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

LaCie has introduced two more USB 3.0 external hard drives, one for desktops, the other for portable computers.

The latter first: it's the Rikiki USB 3.0, a 500GB 2.5in unit that LaCie's selling for £90.

The second drive, the Minimus, comes in at 1TB of 3.5in storage for £100. Like the Rikiki, the Minimus is wrapped in an aluminium casing.

USB 3.0 - aka SuperSpeed USB - is able to provide data transfer speeds of up to 5Gb/s, but you won't get anything like that from rotating media as used here.

If your computer doesn't yet support USB 3.0, both drives are fully compatible with USB 2.0.

The two drives are available now. ®
