The LaCie Rugged Mini Portable Hard Drive provides 1TB of space for storing your data. In addition, the drive, as its name suggests, has a hard-boiled design that can stand up to the hazards of daily living. In fact, this drive can take a fall from up to 47.2" (non-operating mode) without harm to the drive or your information. The Rugged Mini is also pressure-resistant and rain-resistant as well. However, the familiar orange trim probably already told you that.

Being tough is one thing, but the Rugged Mini is also a true performer. The drive features a USB 3.0 interface - which is also USB 2.0 compliant - and a transfer rate of up to 5Gb/s. When it comes to RPMs, the drive functions at 5400 rotations per minute. Beyond speed, the Rugged Mini has security on its agenda. The LaCie Private-Public software that comes built-into the drive ensures that you can keep private files private with the help of a password protected section of the drive. Additional features like Automatic Backup and 10GB of free storage on Wuala's Online Storage also give you peace-of-mind when it comes to your data.

The Smallest Member of the Rugged Family
With its iconic orange design and secure form factor, the Rugged has been one of our most popular hard drives. With the Rugged Mini, we've shrunk the Rugged, and added tons of new features, making it a solid investment for on-the-go data transport
Maximum Reliability
The LaCie Rugged Mini Hard Disk shares features with our popular Rugged Hard Disk, like shock resistance, drop resistance, and a rubber sleeve for added protection. But with the Rugged Mini, we've gone a step further: it's also rain-resistant, and pressure-resistant-you can drive over it with a 1-ton car, and it still works! Its small size makes it perfect to take with you wherever you go, and its Rugged exterior provides protection against accidental drops, shock, or pressure
The Speed of USB 3.0
With the Rugged Mini, you've got the speed of USB 3.0, and full backward compatibility with USB 2.0, meaning that you can use it on almost any computer. You can transfer a 700MB video file in less than 7 seconds with USB 3.0, compared to 25 seconds with USB 2.0. Additionally, you can use the LaCie Mac USB 3.0 Driver to improve data transfer speed on your Mac (up to a 30% performance increase compared to FireWire 800)
LaCie Private-Public
The Rugged Mini doesn't just keep your data safe from external forces-it also protects against intrusion. With secure password protection software built-in, it's easy to make sure that your files are secure and protected, no matter where you go. You can even use access your password-protected files using any computer, ensuring complete data mobility-and complete data safety
Automatic Backup
Easy setup and automatic worry-free backup for both PC and Mac computers
Password Protection
With LaCie Private-Public software built-in, it's easy to make sure that your files are secure and protected, no matter where you go
Secure Online Storage
10GB of Wuala Online Storage included for one year to securely store and share your data online

    I'm a Wedding Photographer in the Dallas/ Fort.Worth area and frequently travel. It's always stressful worrying about the safety of clients photos, and these little power house drives are an awesome solution. Portable hard drives are great but are all too often brittle, and unreliable. When I found out how tough these LaCie drives were, purchasing a few was a no brainer.

    The build and ergonomics are excellent, and the orange protective casing instills a lot of confidence in me personally while I travel. They're shock resistant, water resistant, and can withstand an enormous amount of weight & pressure. I love that I can throw them wherever I want in my gear bag, and know that they'll be safe, and especially that my clients photos are protected.

    The USB 3.0 capability provides super fast data transfer. I can back up 100gbs of RAW photos in less than 20 min, which is blazing fast compared to most USB 2.0 drives. All in all, you get 1TB, a rock solid, reliable drive, all for an awesome price. Definitely worth it.

    I use this to store images and after a year or so it stopped working. Seeing is how this is the only thing it's supposed to do I have to give it a one. I'd like to give it a zero, but not an option. I've used many external hard drives and this is the first one I've ever have stop working.

              I needed an external drive to store media files, and this drive was the perfect solution. Plug and play easy, and built for travel. LaCie products have always been a good bet.

              The only downside is that the unique USB plug could be a bit longer, but I can live with that.

                      I work in wildlife film and photography. As such, I work and travel in cold, dusty, and bumpy environments. I have many of these small drives for transferring video and photo files in the field. I store back up copies of files, and I send these drives through the mail routinely. Never had a problem.

                        One of the most useful pieces i have. Extremely reliable piece of hardware and a must have for anybody working with digital files. Has a relatively fast connection time and is super durable. The price alone should make you want to purchase it compared to the wd's that will break from a 2 inch "drop"

                        Anyway, wonderful product.

                                      The rugged mini has performed very well for editing photos with Photoshop. I have used a 500 GB rugged mini this year and it has been very reliable. I bought this 1TB rugged mini because I needed more hard drive space.

                                      Works like it's supposed to. Very durable. Not super fast, but it's only a 5400RPM drive, so it's about what I expected.

                                            Huge storage for low cost. Seems rugged, but I haven't tried dropping it or anything, of course. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because the backup software it comes with (genie timeline) is sort of annoying, in that it has no manual override. It's always-on, can't be exited, and complains if you boot up the computer without the drive plugged in. In hindsight, I probably would have used different backup software. Oh, well.

                                              Great and lightweight hard drive - excellent for use on location for photography and video shoots. Easy set up and relatively fast transfer.

                                              Not the most reliable or knock-resistant drive. Thunderbolt connection not recognized by Mac computers, which is problematic.

                                                  I got this hard drive to bring along while I travel. It is a nice compact and rugged drive, perfect for traveling. I plan on backing up my important files before I leave home and take the LaCie with me. Using Windows File Explored, it is easy to place and retrieve files on the LaCie.
