External hard drives and USB flash drives are always useful to have, but most external hard drives don’t come with unique design, but it seems that LaCie might change that with its latest device.
Sphere is the latest external hard drive from LaCie, and this device comes with unusual design since it’s shaped to look like a sphere. In order to design this external hard drive LaCie collaborated with Christofle, a luxury brand from France. The hard drive is enclosed in sphere of silver-plated steel and it has a highly reflective finish and it looks visually appealing. Sphere external hard drive connects to your computer via USB 3.0 thus delivering high writing and reading speeds, and there is also blue LED light that indicates the status of the device. This hard drive comes with 1TB of space, and it has features such as Backup Assistant, Private-Public for password protection, and Eco Mode for energy saving.
LaCie Sphere looks great, and it’s perfect if you want an external hard drive that stands from the rest. There’s no information regarding the price, but we should see this device available in the first quarter of 2014.
