That means you can daisy-chain other USB devices through the drive enclosure. That could be virtually any USB device of any kind although they will always operate at the USB 3.0 (5 Gbps) and cannot expect more than 5 watts of power through the USB connection.

If you use the drive and then return it, don't forget to erase it before returning. I would suggest using a secure-erase.

Odds are the LaCie enclosures have Seagate drives.

Thanks, Joe have no used it yet, and I was delayed, since could not figure it out! For $80 I could get Lacie d2 more advanced, but not sure fits in the security box and the stand I don't think comes off d2s like used to for d1s, but sounds like you would get the latest greatest right? Even double price?

OF course, I could return it and use one of the the current Seagate if one test ok.. JUst got Drive DX, but have not used it yet..... You may vote to use of older ones keep for bank.. I"d guess if test good...

Also got daisy disk.. not used yet but will

Since joemike mentioned my name relative to GrandPerspective/DaisyDisk somewhere, I'll respond here, since you've mentioned DD.

I'm running both GP and DD, and while GP's output is awfully pretty and very easily digestible, it doesn't give as much detail as DD does, although DD's output is not the least bit clear or explicit.

Bottom line is that I use one or the other depending on what I'm looking for, so I don't consider either one more useful than the other.
