LaCie outs first rugged drive with eSATA port

LaCie on Thursday introduced an upgraded product into its fold, with the Rugged eSATA external hard drive. Billed as the first rugged portable hard drive on the market with an eSATA port, it's considered fast at 90MBps transfer speeds when connected to the newer port. It can also run entirely bus-powered when attached to a USB-eSATA combo port and bundles an adapter cable that can use a USB port to provide the remaining energy.

A direct USB 2.0 port is also present and provides a more universal if slower alternative.

The Rugged eSATA drive is only available in a 500GB capacity with a 7,200RPM hard drive, and like other Rugged models has a scratch-resistant aluminum case filled with internal shock absorbers shell and covered by a rubber bumper.The new LaCie drive will be available for $160.
