Securing Web Applications Made Simple and Scalable

Upon opening the packaging, you'll find one 2.5in hard drive in an aluminium enclosure all wrapped up in a shock-resistant rubber sleeve. You also get a 500mm USB 3.0 cable and a USB power-sharing cable for those stuck with underpowered ports.

Will not get lost in fog

Unlike some other manufacturers, LaCie doesn't offer their products in 'kit' form with an included USB 3.0 PCIe or ExpressCard 34 adaptor, so make sure to order one as to ensure you aren’t condemned to face eternity at 480Mb/s.

Folk used to carrying a 2.5in drive in a slimline enclosure may find it a bit of a shock to realise that the LaCie Rugged is quite a bit bigger, measuring in at 145 x 90 x 28mm - or approximately the size of a standard 3.5in hard disk. A 3.5in disk wrapped in fluorescent orange rubber, that is.

However, that being said, most of the space is given to allow room for the rubber anti-shock dampers so the whole thing is deceivingly light. Despite being somewhat larger than anticipated, the drive is actually very portable.
