LaCie Rugged XL 1TB
LaCie on Tuesday expanded its Rugged series of hard drives with the Rugged XL, a larger variant that doubles the storage capacity to 1TB. The device features an aluminum casing and rubber sleeve for protection. Internally, the drive is also supported using a bumper to help absorb shock and prevent damage from an accidental drop.
The drive supports both USB 2.0 and eSATA 3Gbps interfaces, along with Windows or Mac operating systems. The company also provides a software bundle with LaCie Setup Assistant, Genie Backup Assistant for Windows and Intego Backup Assistant for Mac.
The Rugged XL hard drive is only available with 1TB of storage and will carry a price of $160.
