Lacie, one of my favorite choices for external hard drives, has announced the first USB 3.0 external hard drive "“ the 2Big RAID. Why go 3.0? Transfer throughput speeds of 275MB/s. Look for pricing and availability soon.
"The 2Big uses Symwave's USB 3.0 standard-compliant dual SATA and RAID bridge controller and a dual-disk RAID o/1 setup to hit those numbers. But LaCie says with this type of throughput, users can stream and edit multiple HD files simultaneously."
