The Delorean wing of the Datamore Porte HDD enclosure

There are not many taut boners to be had when perusing external hard drive enclosures, but LaCie’s latest at least makes a stab at something you’d actually cast your eyes upon fondly as it sat upon your desk. The Datamore Porté enclosure features a DeLorean-like wing door for the easy installation of any hard drive inside, and comes with either USB or eSATA, depending on what your bag is.

    All this fancy crap, yet most enclosure manufacturers still don’t understand that by far the most useful feature is a built-in power supply so that all it needs is a standard IEC power cable.

    At least Apple understood this when it created the Time Capsule.

    In addition, the form factor is also rather reminiscent of Slave I, Boba Fett’s means of interstellar conveyance…

    for what it’s worth, the iomega ego is still the best looking external drive i’ve seen.

    Actually the better one has both USB and eSATA *points at picture and source*

    Also, is this actually a Lacie product? The source’s intro made me think that aside from Lacie, this company also thinks that HDD enclosures should be elegant.

    That being said, I totally want one. Any chances of this being sold outside Korea in the future?

    zuzu: true, but the power supply also builds up heat, which may shorten disk life.

    data integrity > ease of use
