LaCie Minimus Super-Compact USB 3.0 HDD Now in 2TB

The drive is not exactly small enough to do its name justice

We'd have expected an external hard disk drive called the “Minimus” to be small and thin, but the USB 3.0-connected product from LaCie falls short of qualifying as such.

Measuring 110 x 173 x 33 mm (4.33 x 6.81 x 1.29 inches), and weighing 850 grams (1.87 pounds), it isn't a portable USB drive at all.

Instead, it is more of a USB-connected mass storage device for Smart TVs that need a lot of free space to record TV shows and the like.

Speaking of which, the capacity is of 2 TB, quite a bit beyond the previously-available 500 GB and 1 TB drives.

In that order, the prices are of $180 / 140-180 Euro, $99 / 77-99 Euro and $130 / 101-130 Euro. The brushed aluminum body with sharp edges should fit most any room layout.
