LaCie Rugged Mini: Portable Rugged Storage on the Go

 |  |  |  |  |  |  July 20, 2011


While LaCie isn’t new to the rugged hard drive market segment, they’re about to release a miniaturized version of their popular Neil Poulton designed hard drives, which are shock, drop and rain-resistant.

These drives look pretty good, thanks to their stylish orange rubber protective case. They are safe to drop up to 4 feet, so it’s a good bet that your data will remain intact if you’re in the habit of dropping things. They are also 1-ton pressure resistant in case you (or your pet grizzly bear) ever step or sit on your drive after you drop it.

The Rugged Mini comes in 500GB ($99.99) and 1TB ($159.99) sizes. A 500 GB 7,200 RPM version will cost $119.99. They will be available soon over at LaCie.
