LaCie 500GB Rugged Hard Drive
Aug 7, 2008

Does any one know What is the brand of the HD inside the LaCie?

I find the LaCie is available in BH for $260. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/558882-REG/LaCie_301371_500GB_Rugged_All_Terrain_Triple.html

Which is a pretty good deal. But the one thing I am not too sure is which HD they use inside it. I know the Samsung M6 500GB is the fastest in the 500GB class. But other companies also make 500GB but is less speedy.

I can get the Sammy 500Gb with FW800 Enclosure from OWC for $310. http://eshop.macsales.com/item/Other%20World%20Computing/HM500JIMF8U2/ But the enclosure seems look less nice than the LaCie.

Any idea?

thanks
