The Smallest Member of the LaCie 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,
LaCie has shrunk the Rugged, and added tons of new features, making it a solid investment for on-the-go data transport.
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,
LaCie has 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).
