Lacie D2 big disk extreme - raid 0 with a single disk doesn't make any sense to me

    Lacie indicates that the 1 TB D2 big disk extreme has built in Raid-0 support. Given that the form factor suggests a single disk, what does this actually mean? Raid-0 suggests there are 2 500 GB disks paired together with Raid 0.

    I have one of these, and I was under the impression it was two 500GB disks. Now I will go look for the documentation.

    I ended up getting the 1 TB Lacie disk. While the form factor looks the same in pictures as an older 250 GB Lacie that I have it is twice as long. As soon as I got the 1 TB it was self-evident that this thing has two 500 GB 16 MB cache hard drives set-up in a Raid 0 configuration.
