Luxuriate in obviously more responsive photo library browsing. The hard disk performs at up to 110 MB/s. 5400 RPM drives guarantee a minimum of 64MB of cache for premium performance and seek times.

There’s no need to allow your project to be derailed by incompatibility between an external drive and computer. The LaCie Rugged connects to any standard computer, anywhere with both USB 3.0 and FireWire 800 interfaces. It’s ideally suited to your PC - since USB 3.0 is backwards compatible. The LaCie Rugged is totally bus powered through its connecting cables. Its compactness and compatibility mean it’s the must-have sidekick to a new Mac or Ultrabook.

Data isn’t interchangeable, so it’s vital to shield it from any conceivable mishap, whether that’s on the road or in the studio. That's why the LaCie Rugged is MIL-compliant - data is protected even during accidental drops of up to two meters (6.6 feet). The removable cover can also be deployed during transit to provide IP 54-level protection against dust and water. It’s sufficiently tough to be shipped for reliable delivery to clients or partners, and included software allows you to go one further and password protect your files with AES 256-bit encryption.
