The LaCie Rugged USB 3.0 provides speeds up to 110 MB/s -- three times the speed of USB 2.0. The speed enhancement allows you to transfer one HD movie in less than 3 minutes (versus more than 8 minutes in USB 2.0). It offers improved power efficiency, so you only need one cable.
If you do not have a USB 3.0 connection on your PC or notebook, you can easily add it with a LaCie USB 3.0 PCIe card or USB 3.0 PCIe Express card. LaCie also offers bundled options with the Rugged USB 3.0 – you choose the card.
Housed in rugged casing designed by Neil Poulton, the LaCie Rugged USB 3.0 features a scratch–resistant aluminum shell, internal anti–shock absorbers, and a shock–resistant rubber bumper to better protect files against everyday blunders.
The LaCie Rugged USB 3.0 will be available in 500GB capacity starting at the suggested retail price of $149.99 (VAT included).
