LaCie debuts rugged 500GB external HDD

Posted on Monday, April 28 2008 @ 01:05:31 CEST by


LaCie has released a new 500GB external hard drive with a rugged scratch-resistant aluminum shell and shock-resistant rubber bumper.
LaCie announced today that it has pushed mobile capacity limits by making available a new 500 gigabyte (GB) Rugged Hard Disk. Designed by Neil Poulton, the LaCie Rugged features a unique scratch-resistant aluminum shell and a shock-resistant rubber bumper to protect data against the everyday bumps, bruises and hard knocks of the real world, while protecting valuable data along the way.

Utilizing a state-of-the-art Hitachi Travelstar 5K500, 2.5-inch internal hard disk, LaCie was able to produce a product nearly identical in size to its previous Rugged offerings. The 500GB Rugged is available in USB 2.0 or a USB 2.0, FireWire 400 and FireWire 800 version for speedier data transfers. Bus-powered by either USB* or FireWire, the Rugged is designed to interact smoothly with any computer.

“The Rugged Hard Disk is one of LaCie’s most popular products and has been so for a number of years,“ said Nolwenn Rozen, LaCie Mobile Product Manager. “We recently upgraded capacity to 320GB, and now with recent innovations, we are able to increase it again. With all LaCie products, we will continue to push the envelope on capacity as technology permits.”

“LaCie Rugged All Terrain drives are an integral part of our workflow in the field for our travel show,” said Art Wolfe, acclaimed photographer and host of Travels to the Edge public television series. “From the deserts in West Africa to the Antarctic Peninsula and Madagascar to Nepal, I depend on these devices for safe, reliable storage and wouldn't travel without them.”

This Rugged version comes preloaded with LaCie Setup Assistant, a proprietary utility that formats the drive according to your needs (Mac, Windows, or cross-platform environments) and automatically copies the user manual and utilities to the computer. The utilities provided include LaCie ‘1-Click’ Backup Software for both PC and Mac and SilverKeeper for Mac.


The LaCie Rugged 500GB is now available for $299.99.
