|Comments :||*Hot-swapping is not possible in RAID 0 and concatenation modes.
**Maximum interface transfer rate = theoretical bus bandwidth, whereas burst transfer rate = maximum drive speed. Performance depends on the RAID mode selected and burst transfer rates vary from one computer to another and may vary slightly from one drive to another. Average speed is usually lower depending on host configuration.
***The LaCie Shortcut Button feature is available via FireWire and USB but not eSATA.
****1TB (Terabyte) = 1000GB. 1GB = 1,000,000,000 bytes. Total accessible capacity varies depending upon operating environment (typically 5-10% less). Capacity varies depending upon RAID mode.
These measurements are indications may vary by +/- 10%.
Windows 2000, Windows XP 32-bit, and versions of Mac OS X before 10.4.6 do not recognize partitions of more than 2TB.
