The LaCie Rugged Mini Portable Hard Drive (1TB) continues in the footsteps of the other rugged drives from LaCie, with shock, pressure, and rain resistance, along with that high-recognizable orange border. For such a small, and therefore portable, drive it just seems like common sense to build-in so many safety features for your data.
The Rugged Mini is more than just a durable drive though, it's the warehouse of storage with a whopping 1TB of room on a hard disk that features 5400 RPM and a transfer rate up to 5Gb/s. The drive's USB 3.0 / 2.0 interface keeps all that data moving with speed and efficiency as well, no matter if you're using a Mac or a Windows machine.
In addition to its duties as your hard drive, the Rugged Mini comes with special extras done the LaCie way. LaCie Private-Public securely protects your files with password protection software built-in. Other features of the built-in software suite include automatic backups for Mac and PC computers, an Automatic Eco mode that can save up to 49% of power when not in use, and 10GB of free Wuala storage for one year.
