Devices offer new 1.2GHz CPU

LaCie on Tuesday introduced updates to it d2, 2big and 5big network-attached storage (NAS) systems. Version 2 of each device features a new 1.2GHz CPU for improved data transfer rates of up to 70 MB per second.

The 5big also provides an extra LAN port which supports load balancing or link aggregation, while uninterrupted power supplies (UPS) and iSCSI are also supported.

The d2 Network 2 is available in capacities ranging from 1TB to 2TB, with prices starting at $230, while the 2big Network 2 ships with 2TB to 4TB of storage for prices as low as $400. The 5big Network 2 starts at $700 and can be purchased with capacities from 2.5TB to 10TB.
