The 160GB Little Big Disk from LaCie is on sale at the Apple Retail stores at $229. The price was $350 last week and LaCie dropped MSRP this week to $299. Apple Stores (not online) are selling the bigger 200GB and 320GB at MSRP but the 160GB for $70 less.
The original price of the drives was $729 for the 200GB and 679 for the 320GB. I can only assume drive prices have dropped dramatically at supply level. The 160GB can be taken apart and bigger drives can be installed in the future (including the new 200GB 7200rpm drives!)
These drives can be set up as RAID 0/1 and with FW800, they can reach up to 78/56 MB/s R/W respectively. They are bus powered so a great way to carry around extra storage with little bulk.
