Lacie Thunderbolt Hub with eSATA

Tuesday, 10 January 2012 11:10 by Michael Olivero

Lacie, known for their popular Mac external storage devices, has announced a thunderbolt hub with eSATA ports.  In the Mac world, this is very big news because Macs, which currently do not support USB 3.0 nor eSATA, can now leverage external drives with the same speed as internally connected drives.  With USB 2.0, editing video or file transfers where unnecessarily lengthy.  With the new Lacie hub, this should hopefully bring new life to all these external devices.  The hub is expected to be available first quarter 2012.
