LaCie Desktop Biometric Hard Drives Provide Storage and Security

Coming in 160, 320, and 500 GB sizes, the Lacie external hard drive protects your document in three ways. The first is a fingerprint scanner that supports up to five users. The second is a firmware lock that tethers the drive to the enclosure, so if you remove the drive it becomes unusable. The third is a chain lock port to tie the enclosure physically to your desk or some other solid object.

The drives are available now for $149.99, $229.99 and $299.99. They all support USB 2.0, but not Firewire, but still work both PC and Mac.
