Digital Storage Devices

LaCie today introduced the first SCSI external hard disk drive capable of storing 180 Gigabytes of information, currently the largest single drive capacity in the world. 
The 180Gb disk is particularly suited to photographers storing large numbers of 2D and 3D images which could previously only be achieved with a tower of chained hard disks.
Its a 7200rpm disk fitted with the industry's fastest interface, SCSI Ultra 160, boasting a theoretical transfer rate of 160MB/sec. As a result the drive offers 47MB/sec sustained transfer rate that will satisfy speed-demanding applications used by multimedia professionals. Using the bundled Silverlining driver, extremely demanding Macintosh users will even be able to double speed, by arranging two or more 180Gb drives as a RAID array.

To avoid over-heating, the drive has been encased in a hyperventilated casing. Over-heating is a common problem for internal hard drives with extremely high capacities and may result in the loss of vital data. External drives provide a greater reliability as they can be cooled ease

Its available through LaCie authorised resellers and mail order partners at suggested retail price of 1992. This price includes cables and Silverlining, a comprehensive drive management software that manages USB, IDE, SCSI and Firewire peripherals at the same time. LaCie's Silverlining Pro drive utility software for MacOS 8.6 and 9.x or Silverlining 98 for Windows 98SE (Second Edition), 2000 and Millennium. LaCie will also provide a version bundled with a SCSI card.
