LaCie makes a wide range of hard disk products, ranging from low-cost models for home users to huge great backup systems for professional and corporate users.

Pros: Attractive design and price
Cons: Poor manual for accompanying software

Hard disks aren’t the most exciting of products, but LaCie livens things up with some unusual designs, such as the Lego-like Brick. Available in red, white or blue, LaCie's Brick has a fun design that will appeal to many home users. It’s also very practical, as you can stack multiple LaCie Brick drives on top of each other – just like real Lego bricks.

Our only minor complaint is that the manual doesn’t really do a very good job of explaining the various bits of software that are provided with the LaCie Brick. However, the LaCie Brick's high-quality design and attractive price make this a good option for home users who need some extra storage.
