LaCie: Bringing Lightening eSATA Speed To Thunderbolt

At CES this year, Hillsboro, Ore.-based LaCie unveiled the LaCie eSATA Hub Thunderbolt Series to add Thunderbolt technology to existing eSATA drives. The Hub connects to a late-model Mac via the Thunderbolt port and lets users connect two eSATA external hard drives to the Hub and get full eSATA speeds on their new Mac. A second Thunderbolt port on the Hub lets users connect other Thunderbolt peripherals, providing for up to six Hubs, with two eSATA drives per Hub, to connect to a Mac with full eSATA 3 Gbits per second speed.
