LaCie (http://www.lacie.com) has released the eSATA Hub Thunderbolt Series, its latest peripheral featuring Thunderbolt technology. This product delivers a solution for connecting eSATA hard drives to Thunderbolt-compatible Macs, making them backwards compatible.
The eSATA Hub also boosts transfer speeds and allows users to daisy chain with other Thunderbolt peripherals. This means users can connect up to 12 eSATA drives (six hubs x 2 eSATA drives per hub) to a Mac while maintaining full eSATA 3Gb/s speeds. It also helps organize desktops by connecting both a Thunderbolt compatible display and storage device via a single cable (sold separately) to a Mac.
The eSATA Hub Thunderbolt Series is available through the LaCie Online Store and LaCie Storage Partners. Pricing starts at US$199.
