How exciting can hard drives be. Right? Well, partially. Truth be told, when designed well hard drives can actually be pretty sweet. Case in point: LaCie. Their attention to detail has resulted in a long line of successful functional and stylish storage options.

At this year’s CES, LaCie once again expanded their line by introducing two new thunderbolt models: the 2 TB 2big and eSATA Hub Thunderbolt series. The 2big ships with support for RAID (0 and 1), hot swappable drive bays, and of course, the ability to daisy chain up to six connected devices. Meanwhile, the eSATA hub connects via Thunderbolt and provides two eSATA ports for such devices. And, because you can daisy chain up to 6 Thunderbolt devices, one could theoretically connect up to 12 2 TB hard drives for up to 24 TB or storage!

All in all, we’re glad to see more manufacturers (non-Apple ones too) finally getting more into the Thunderbolt arena.
