Okay, I'm a die-hard Western Digital MyBook fan, almost a dozen of them so far without incident, but I can't help being attracted to the design of this LaCie enclosure (with what should be a Seagate drive from what I understand).
Yes, it's technically quite plain but the shiny black and entrancing blue light glow does make me wonder what they'd look like towering on my desk instead of all the MyBooks... must definitely be a pretty sight!
Having said that, dabs.com are doing a clearout and this 2TB flavour is going quite cheapo! £134.72 plus £3.50 for delivery. A lot of money indeed but a good deal based on being cheaper than Amazon and everything else on Google Shopping. Only while stocks last, seems they've been popular...
The user-friendly LaCie Hard Drive, Design by Neil Poulton adds sophisticated style to your desktop yet its presence is quiet and unobtrusive. It has a unique distinguishing feature - a cool, blue LED strip on its underside that creates an ambient glow. Its subtle, all-black design blends perfectly into dark home entertainment setups and workstations. Very small for its vast capacity, this lightweight, compact drive has a fashionable, mirror-polished finish. The smartly engineered design allows for heat dissipation and near-silent, fanless operation. Setup is nearly effortless; its plug and play and offers customizable formatting. LaCie '1-Click' Backup Software for PC and Mac is included for quickly saving files in one click.
