    A slightly fiddly and time-consuming set-up procedure nevertheless gives way to a good set of features for sharing your files on a home network or across the internet

    LaCie Golden Disk 500GB review

    LaCie Golden Disk 500GB review

    6  

    The Golden Disk has a 7,200rpm drive with 500GB capacity. From a two-year-old iMac, our 1GB test folder wrote to the Golden Disk in 52 seconds and read back in 45 seconds. That’s acceptable but not startling.

    LaCie d2 Quadra review

    8  

    On the face of it the LaCie d2 Quadra has a lot going for it. The “Quadra” in this case refers to the fact that you’re provided with quadruple interface options, including eSATA and USB, in addition to both 400 and 800 variants of FireWire.

    Sparrow's second rule of computing is: "Whatever size of hard drive you buy... it will never be big enough." Now,that's fine and not really a huge problem if you're talking about a desktop computer. You can easily upgrade a desktop hard drive in minutes

    LaCie Skwarim Drive review

    If you're anything like us, you already carry around some sort of storage device with you at all times, either as a flash drive or a portable hard drive. So why not carry something with a little bit of pizzazz to it?

    LaCie SAFE Biometric Hard Drive 500GB review

    7  

    Biometric access is a natural fit for an external drive, which is probably the easiest type of storage to steal unless it's locked down. This desktop SAFE drive is a biometric drive that will give up to five users fingerprint access to its data.

    First, the big perk of this external hard drive: out of the box, it's incredibly quick and easy to get going. The software pre-installed onthe Ethernet Mini disk allows you to configure the basics quickly: justplug the drive into your USB port...
