Designed by the world-famous Porsche Design Agency GmbH, the LaCie Hard Drive exhibits world-class style and elite performance. Available with USB 2.0 interface, the LaCie Hard Drive offers fast data transfer rates (up to 480Mbits/s using USB 2.0 connection) that are required for substantial jobs like downloading digital photos, saving MP3s or transferring home videos from a camcorder.
It's quick and quiet. Good stuff.

Comments: Just picked up this baby today to back up sensitive data from my RAID 0 array. It runs EXTREMELY quietly, I couldn't even hear the heads inside moving over the platters. File transfer times are acceptable over USB 2.0. It does not have a cooling fan but does not get hot anyway, so that's a moot point. Oh, and it's not as big as the pictures make it look, either. You could use it to transfer data between computers, but don't plan on clipping it to your keychain! Oh, and my computer identified it as a Western Digital drive inside, so the company isn't cutting corners on drive quality. Definitely worth the price, for the peace of mind it offers.
