LaCie reduced Rugged HDD size not capacity

SuperSpeed USB 3.0 included

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

LaCie has shrunk its rubber-wrapped Rugged external hard drive.

Well, a little. Despite the word "Mini" being appended to the new drive's handle, it's not radically smaller than the current Rugged.

LaCie Rugged Mini

It's 135 x 86 x 19mm to the regular Rugged's 145 x 90 x 28mm - 40 per cent smaller by volume, but only a centimetre off the length and height.

The Mini has a 5400rpm 500GB hard drive, but LaCie also readying 5400rpm 1TB and 7200rpm 500GB models. The three will be priced at £89.90, £139.90 and £99.90, respectively.

They have USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 connectivity through a single port. ®
