LaCie and Symwave announce 2Big USB 3.0 dual-drive RAID

No monkeys this time, but LaCie has just announced new storage option that should get folks plenty excited on its own: a new dual-drive 2Big USB 3.0 RAID drive developed in partnership with Symwave. As you've no doubt been able to surmise by now, this thing is big and fast, with it able to support up to 4TB of storage, and provide a peak burst read transfer speed of 275MB/s thanks to a new dual SATA and RAID bridge controller developed by Symwave. Unfortunately, there's still no indication of a price, and LaCie isn't getting any more specific than "early 2010" in terms of a release date. It is promising to show off the drive at CES next month though, and hopefully offer a few more details about it as well.
