LaCie today announced the latest model of its Hard Disk, Design by Neil Poulton -- a new triple interface version consisting of USB 2.0, eSATA, and Firewire in capacities of 500GB, 750GB and 1TB. Created exclusively for LaCie by noted designer Neil Poulton, the sleek and compact device is fashioned in a black-mirrored finish and includes a unique blue LED strip that creates a rich ambient glow to enhance the storage experience.

The Hard Disk, Design by Neil Poulton is a compact desktop solution that features natural heat dissipation thanks to a sturdy casing with bottom plate holes for natural airflow. The device can connect to any universal Hi-Speed USB 2.0, eSATA, or FireWire interface port for cross-platform compatibility with either a PC or Mac.

The product comes preloaded with LaCie '1-Click' Backup Software for PC and Mac and the Mac-only SilverKeeper; both are simple to use software solutions for regularly backing up. Also preloaded is the LaCie Setup Assistant, a utility that optimises the drive according to your needs and automatically copies the user manual and utilities to the computer (Mac, Windows, or cross-platform environments).

The Hard Disk, Design by Neil Poulton costs £99 for the 500GB version, £149 for the 750GB and £199 for the 1TB version. The USB-only version is also available at the starting price of £69.
