The LaCie Rugged Hard Drive offers the supreme speed of FireWire 800, along with FireWire 400 and Hi-Speed USB 2.0 interfaces for true universal connectivity. The drive is the exclusive creation of world-renowned designer Neil Poulton, and is one of LaCie's most popular products.

Conveniently bus-powered and plug-and-play, the LaCie Rugged Hard Disk plugs into almost any computer for backup, video storage, and large data volume exchange on the go. The external drive's unique scratch-protected aluminum shell and shock-resistant rubber bumper make the Rugged Hard Disk especially resistant to harsh elements, giving you extra protection wherever you need it.

Terribly unreliable

By Michael G

Comments about LaCie Rugged Hard Drive:

I purchase the 320GB model because I was loved the idea of having a portable harddrive with three different interfaces and an apparently durable enclosure. However, after only the third use the drive failed! For the entire duration of owning it I kept the drive safe in a protective case, stored in a cool dry place. Therefore, I think it's failure was entirely unacceptable. This is the second time I've had a LaCie drive spontaneously fail and I'll never purchase one of their products again. This may be a popular drive but I wouldn't suggest it to anyone.
