The $1,199 enclosure isn't cheap, but the device serves as a direct-attachable bit bucket that can house up to a month of MPEG-2 video. Four cables are included to allow data to be transmitted through each of the following interfaces: FireWire 800, FireWire 400, USB 2.0 and iLink, a version of the FireWire interface with a 4-pin port connector.
LaCie will begin shipping the drive this month through its online store, retailers, and distributors.
The disk enclosure includes an on/off switch and features a special operating mode to reduce noise in a shared office environment, LaCie said. The Bigger Disk can also hibernate to save power.
