It is a 60GB USB powered hard drive with a rotational speed of 3400rpm. In Australia it costs about AUD$170, which compares well with the 32GB Corsair Voyager (AUD$370) ie: less than 1/4 of the cost per GB.

I have one on order and will post report once I've installed it, but I am reasonably confident it will work after reading this:

I saw your post on e90post - looks like you'll be a guinea pig here. The Lacie has a 3400 RPM drive, and it seems to me the odds that it works well are quite high. I look forward to hearing the outcome of your test. Also, if it happens to work for you, would you mind trying it with the LONGEST USB cable you own? I figure that if it still works there's lots of margin in this HDD solution

Thanks!
