For over a decade, LaCie Rugged drives have thrived where only the toughest survive - the film sets, photo shoots, and music studios of the world's most influential creative pros. Why' Because LaCie Rugged products are the industry's most trusted way to capture and transport data in the field.
Successor to the acclaimed LaCie Rugged, the Rugged Mini shares its iconic orange design and secure form factor, and is tougher with rain- and pressure-resistance for added protection. The Rugged Mini also comes with encryption software to keep your files confidential and safe from intrusion. Plus, with the latest USB 3.0 interface, this portable drive offers a convenient and efficient way to expand storage and protect your digital assets with up to 5Gbps bus speed.
The LaCie Rugged Mini Hard Disk shares features with the popular Rugged Hard Disk, like shock resistance, drop resistance, and a rubber sleeve for added protection. But the Rugged Mini has gone a step further: it's also rain-resistant, and pressure-resistant - you can drive over it with a 1-ton car, and it still works! Its small size makes it perfect to take with you wherever you go, and its Rugged exterior provides protection against accidental drops, shock, or pressure.The Speed of USB 3.0
