LaCie has just announced the latest addition to its Rugged family of mobile hard drives – the LaCie Rugged USB 3.0; with its unique and distinctive orange, life raft-esque award–winning design combined with the new super speeds of USB 3.0 this is one outstanding external hard drive.
The LaCie Rugged USB 3.0 provides speeds of up to 110 MB/s – three times the speed of USB 2.0 and new drive is backward compatible with the older standard – great if your system hasn’t got a SuperSpeed port or you can’t get your hands on a suitable adaptor� – offering you instant usability no matter what version of USB.
The speed enhancement allows you to transfer large video files in less than 3 minutes (versus more than 8 minutes on a traditional USB 2.0 drive). The power consumption has also been improved, allowing you optimal performance on just one USB 3 cable.
Anne–Sophie Marchand, Consumer Product Manager at LaCie said “We are pleased to add USB 3.0, the fastest interface available, to our most recognised mobile solution, now the most demanding customers can get the best performance out of a 2.5? hard drive – making the Rugged USB 3.0 the only hard drive necessary for work in the field.”
Encased in the award–winning Rugged housing designed by Neil Poulton, it offers a unique scratch–resistant aluminium shell, internal anti–shock absorbers and a shock–resistant rubber bumper to better protect the drive and your precise files against those everyday bums and� tumbles, letting you get on with your work.
