LaCie has announced the Little Big Disk Quadra 1TB which they say is the industry’s largest capacity, most powerful mobile storage solution to fit comfortably into the palm of your hand.

Joining the already shipping 500GB and 400GB (7200 RPM) versions, this unit is ideal for the graphics intensive sign and display industry.

With one eSATA 3Gbits, two FireWire 800 (FireWire 400 compatible with included adaptor), and one USB 2.0 interface, the Little Big Disk allows universal connectivity for true cross-platform compatibility.

Featuring the well-known LaCie d2 heat sink design and developed by Neil Poulton, the Little Big Disk is entirely fanless, which allows it to operate flawlessly without posing as a noise distraction when editing content. The sturdy Little Big Disk is 100 percent bus-powered by the FireWire interface, in spite of the two 2.5-inch disks inside, and weighs in at a little over 1.4 pounds. Up to 60 percent lighter than conventional desktop drives, this device is a great solution for users needing versatile on-the-go storage for high-intensity computing applications.

“The Little Big Disk is suitable for multiple in-the-field applications. A professional photographer will take thousands of RAW photos in one photo shoot, while a videographer needs tremendous capacity and transfer rates to edit their footage,” said Arnaud Prezelin, LaCie Product Manager for Creative Pro solutions. “Powerful yet portable, the Little Big Disk Quadra is an essential tool for meeting a professional’s mobile needs. While traveling, users no longer need to carry heavy devices and power cables to operate a high-capacity 1TB external hard drive.”
