The LaCie Rugged All-Terrain Hard Drive is not only just about as rugged as the name suggests but is also a solid performer with the USB as well as FireWire interface. In fact it is the one of the fastest overall performer we have seen thus far. The FireWire performance is particularly impressive and we suggest that this should be used where possible, but we would also like to mention that the USB performance is great too.
Full 1080p media capable
The LaCie LaCinema Rugged HD is a multimedia external USB hard drive designed with portability in mind. Like other multimedia hard drives, the LaCinema Rugged HD has an HDMI output, as well as composite video, however, with a shell developed by designer Neil Poulton, the LaCinema Rugged HD is scratch-proof and easy to transport to friends', family and coworker's houses.
shock resistant capability
At only 37.8ounces you can bring the Lacie Rugged XL 1TB just about anywhere with you which will mean you can easily transfer around those files that you need to get from one computer to the other. 1 Terabyte is more than enough for everyday usage and backup, but if you are storing some serious graphic design templates or you have a large array of digital photos you may quickly find yourself looking for a larger drive.
It's hard to fault Lacie's Rugged Hard Disk drive, which matches up high speed performance and an entirely portable solution within its enticing rubber skin. If you're in the market for a portable hard drive that should be able to survive a few nasty knocks, this is the one to go for.
