Enhanced Data Transfer Speeds

Get enhanced transfer speeds on Mac and PC thanks to the USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt interfaces. Thunderbolt transfers data at a rate of 10 Gb/s and USB 3.0 provides 5 Gb/s transfers, which are an improvement over FireWire 800. These interfaces let you back up and transfer large amounts of data in a fraction of the time.

Universal Connectivity

With both USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt interfaces, the LaCie Rugged is a suitable match for your Mac and PC. Since USB 3.0 is backward compatible, you can connect it to any standard computer, anywhere. The integrated Thunderbolt cable also stows neatly when not in use, so that you'll never lose it. The LaCie Rugged is also fully bus powered through the USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt cables.

All-Terrain Data Protection

This rugged SSD from LaCie comes MIL-compliant, which means that data is protected even during accidental drops of up to 6.6 feet (2 meters). During transit, connect the removable cover to provide IP 54-level protection against dust and water. The included software even protects your files with AES 256-bit encryption.

Automatic Backup

The LaCie Backup Assistant software program is easy to set up and provides automatic backup of data for Mac and PC.
