LaCie Announces the Rugged RAID Mobile Drive
Bohs Hansen / 2 years ago
LaCie has announced the new Rugged RAID mobile hard drive for the active person that needs that extra data safety. The bright orange drive features both a built-in Thunderbolt cable and an extra USB 3 connection for the ones without Thunderbolt ports on their systems.
The drive has 4TB capacity in total, but the available storage depends on the setup. It supports both RAID 1 and RAID 0, and it also comes with support for 256bit AES-encryption. Transfer speeds also depend on the configuration and the drive can achieve up to 240MB/s.
LaCie Rugged is resistant to shock, dust, and water: perfect for the outdoors. It is tested to withstand drops of up to 1.5 meters and 1 ton of pressure. It is IP 54–rated for superior resistance to dust and water splashing with the cap in place, even during operation. The backup software suite is compatibility with both Time Machine and Windows Backup.
The LaCie Rugged RAID will be available for an MSRP of $449.99 this quarter through both the LaCie Online Store and LaCie Resellers and the drive is backed by a 3-year warranty that can be extended.
