LaCie intros weatherproof Rugged Mini drives with USB 3.0

updated 07:10 pm EDT, Tue July 19, 2011

Drive available with 500GB or 1TB disk

LaCie has expanded its Rugged series of portable hard drives, introducing the Rugged Mini. The new offering is said to be 40 percent smaller than its predecessors, without sacrificing a durable build. The compact drive features a rubber edge for resistance to shock and falls, while the aluminum housing is also claimed to be water resistant.

Users can choose from 500GB or 1TB capacities, each providing a USB 3.0 connection and 7200rpm disk to help maintain fast transfer rates. The connection is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 for compatibility with a wider range of devices.

The Rugged Mini drives will be available "soon" with prices starting at $95 for the 500GB variant. The drives ship with LaCie's Private-Public software for AES data encryption.
