LaCie launches 500GB Rugged Hard Disk

updated 02:45 pm EDT, Tue April 22, 2008

LaCie 500GB Rugged HDs

LaCie on Tuesday announced its newest Rugged Hard Disk with a 500GB capacity. To protect the generous amount of mobile data, the drive is encased in a scratch-resistant aluminum shell which is then surrounded by a shock-resistant rubber bumper. That disk is Hitachi's 2.5-inch Travelstar 5K500, available with either a standard USB 2.0 or an optional USB 2.0/FireWire 400/800 interface for faster transfer speeds.

The hard disks are powered by the USB or Firewire connections exclusively and come with LaCie's Setup Assistant software that allows for either Mac or Windows PC integration. The software also automatically uploads the drive's utilities and user's manual to each platform, and includes back-up programs for either.

The LaCie Rugged 500GB is available now for just shy of $300.

    Ease up on the coffee.
