Last year, LaCie rolled out its first portable Thunderbolt drives with a maximum of 1TB hard drive capacity.
LaCie announced that its award–winning Rugged USB 3.0 Thunderbolt™ Series hard drive is now available in a 2TB version. With double the storage of its predecessor, the new LaCie Rugged is the highest capacity bus–powered storage solution with Thunderbolt technology on the market. Plus, the 2TB model achieves speeds up to 127MB/s, a 15 percent increase from the previous version. With these speeds users can transfer 750 RAW photos or one HD movie in less than one minute.While the 1 TB launched at $250 last year, the unit is now available from the Apple Online Store for $200 and the new 2TB is available for $300 from LaCie's website.
