LaCie Launches Pocket-sized USB 3.0 HDDs


LaCie has expanded its lineup of USB 3.0-enabled external hard drives (maybe because the Rugged  USB 3.0 mobile hard drive it launched in late April had begun pining for siblings). The Minimus and Rikiki are the company's latest USB 3.0-powered HDD offerings. If you believe in love at first sight, then an innate predilection for “sturdy brushed aluminum”will surely boost the odds of you falling for these two drives.

Available in 500GB and 1TB capacities, the Rikiki USB 3.0  is the world's smallest USB 3.0 mobile hard drive at 2.9" x 4.6" x 0.52" . The cheapest Rikiki USB 3.0 is priced at $99.99. Coming to the slightly bigger Minimus USB 3.0 desktop hard drive, it is available in 1TB and 2TB capacities, with the former priced at $129.99.

"The Minimus and Rikiki USB 3.0 offer our customers easy and affordable options to access the super speeds of USB 3.0," Philippe Rault, LaCie Consumer Product Manager, is quoted as saying in a release. "Since these products offer backward compatibility with USB 2.0, they will work on any PC or Mac with no worry."
