LaCie has today unveiled a new addition to their storage range in the form of the LaCie eSATA Hub Thunderbolt Series. Which has been designed to connect eSATA hard drives to Thunderbolt-compatible Mac computers, enabling backwards compatibility.
Once connected the LaCie eSATA Hub Thunderbolt Series will also provide a increase in transfer speeds and enables you to daisy chain other Thunderbolt devices.
The daisy chain support allows you to connect up to 12 eSATA drives (6 Hubs x 2 eSATA drives per Hub) to a Mac while maintaining full eSATA 3Gb/s speeds. Which show provide even the most storage hungry users with plenty of options.
Another useful feature of the LaCie eSATA Hub is that it will also allow you to connect both a Thunderbolt compatible display and storage device via a single cable.
The LaCie eSATA Hub is now available to purchase for around $200 either direct from LaCie or one of its partners.
