LaCie has announced its 75GB FireWire hard drive.

The company believes the product is the industry's highest-capacity FireWire hard drive – it packs enough storage for over five hours of digital video, or over 100 CD-Audio images. It's hot pluggable and mounts automatically when connected.

The drive offers two FireWire ports and has an access time of 9ms. It does not require an external power supply and will be available soon.
