LaCie and Samsung Collaborate on 1.3-inch Form Factor Hard Drives

LaCie and Samsung announced the end results of their collaboration in implementing 1.3-inch hard disk technology for LaCie micro storage devices. Available in 30GB or 40GB versions, LaCie will be offering its smallest Little Disk yet, as well as an update to the popular credit card sized USB Key Max. Both products are USB 2.0 powered and include their very own connection cable for true on-the-go mobility in an ultra compact form.

The Samsung 1.3-inch drive was designed to be the most efficient use of capacity per volume, while its size is equal to that of Compact Flash II cards. The development of such technology allowed LaCie to overcome current size limitations and to achieve innovative design with massive storage capacities for pocket-sized devices.

With easy plug-and-play installation, the 1.3-inch Little Disk and USB Key Max could not be any simpler to use. The devices are driver-free and are compatible with any computer running Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Mac OS X 10.2 or higher or Linux 2.4 or 2.6. The devices are preformatted FAT32 for cross platform versatility.

The devices come preloaded with LaCie's '1-Click' Backup Software for PC and Mac and SilverKeeper Backup Software for Mac to regularly back up data. Also bundled for Windows is LaCieSync synchronization and encryption software that syncs updated files, emails, or personal settings to your office or home computer. For added security AES 128-bit encryption keep data safe from unwanted eyes.

LaCie's new 1.3-inch Little Disk and USB Key Max, with capacities up to 40GB, can hold approximately 36,000 digital photos, 12,000 songs (MP3 files), or 60 hours DVD quality video.
