LaCie Little Big Disk Quadra
Released January, 2008
The Pros:Large number of connections, high speed ones too (eSATA, firewire 400/800, USB 2.0). Passively cooled - silent. Slower 5400RPM disks are perfect for storage - quiet and cool.
The Cons:5400RPM disks are not as fast as their 7200RPM equivalents, slower for transferring large files. Very expensive.
The LaCie Little Big Disk Quadra is an external hard drive that suppors 3Gbits eSATA, high speed USB 2.0, and FireWire 400 and 800. It has a built in RAID 0, which is great for speed but bad for data security should there be a hard drive failure.

variety of capacities up to 1TB
All aluminum construction versus cheap plastic that other vendors use.
Very Unique design, still small enough to be portable, yet solid enough to not slide around all over your desk.
