LaCie updates its Little Big Disk line with SSDs; Western Digital launches 4TB and 8TB versions of the My Book line

LaCie’s Little Big Disk line recently got a nice update. The external storage peripheral now has two 2.5 ″ SATA III SSDs, capable of reading at speeds up to 635MB / s – 33% faster than the previous generation. It even has Thunderbolt ports, being able to transfer a 50GB file in less than two minutes. It’s good for you? ?

The Thunderbolt input also allows chaining up to six compatible devices, such as monitors and other peripherals. The new Little Big Disk Thunderbolt summers (with SSD storage) cost $ 700 (512GB) and $ 1,000 (1TB) – both include the cable. There is also a 264GB version, but this is only found at authorized dealers.

Western Digital has already announced the expansion of the My Book line, which now has 4TB and 8TB models.

The My Book Thunderbolt Duo 8TB (HDD) also has the chaining of up to six units, totaling 48TB of storage. The My Book Essential 4TB (HDD) has a USB 3.0 connection, which allows speeds up to three times faster than those of 2.0 ports. It is already prepared for Windows 8, the next version of Microsoft’s system. While the busier model costs $ 850, the My Book 4TB costs $ 210 – in the United States, of course.
