The LaCie 2big Triple hard drive, designed by Neil Poulton, has won a trophy as the Best Storage Back-up Solution from the Technical Image Press Association (TIPA).
â€œSince its release, the 2big Triple has won a number of design awards from international competitions such as Red Dot and iF,â€ said Eric Vermelle, LaCie Marketing Director. â€œThis is the first honor the 2big has received based on quality, performance and value.â€
The LaCie 2big Triple is a storage device with separate FireWire 800, FireWire 400, or USB 2.0 interfaces for high-speed data transfer. Available in capacities from 1 to 2 terabytes, the 2big Triple can be individually configured for performance (RAID 0) and safety (RAID 1). When set for RAID 1, the unit is hot-swappable and upon insertion of a new drive, will automatically rebuild data for non-stop data access, according to LaCie.
The LaCie 2big Triple is available starting at $350 for 1TB.
