The Blade Runner is a four pound, 4TB hard drive that connects to your device via an USB 3.0 and it also includes 10GB of Wuala cloud storage. There’s also a single LED power button that glows to show drive activity, giving design-conscious consumers no reason to hide this unit; instead Starch this to be viewed more as a functional piece of art in place of the bland boxes usually serving the same role. The Blade Runner comes with a sticker price of $299 from LaCie’s http://lacie.com/us/products/product.htm?id=10613″ target=”_blank”>online store as well as select specialty retailers around the globe.
